DTS Staff Training

The talented and fun-loving crew we call our DTS staff spent a week in Ensenada, along with DTS staff from YWAM Ensenada and YWAM Honolulu, for staff training. It was a great time of encouragement and being challenged on servant leadership -- or as Todd Hunter once asked: "what does it mean to lead people who are supposed to be following Someone Else?" -- but no DTS with me as a leader would be complete without the traditional run to St. Arbucks.

Not that anyone protested... :)

New Look, New Focus, New Season

The blog is retooling to reflect where we are currently at -- physically, spiritually, vocationally, and geographically.

We have been with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in a full-time capacity since 2006, although our connections to and involvement with YWAM goes back about 20 years. Ever since leading a DTS outreach team (almost two years ago) to YWAM San Diego/Baja's "one base, four locations" constellation of ministries, our journey has expanded to include moving here full-time. We are at the Tijuana Del Mar campus, which is the newest site for YWAM's University of the Nations.

We are loving México, living in Tijuana, the wonderful staff we are privileged to work with, the work that we are doing, and last but certainly not least, the incredible food.
