I’m on staff! The SOMD is a training school developed at YWAM Denver to equip and raise-up individuals who desire to work in full-time ministry. We place great emphasis on leadership development, God’s calling on a persons life and practical ministry tools, with the goal to “…equip the saints for the work of the ministry." (Eph4:12)!
Our first week was spent bonding as a class. We all shared our testimonies and also had a party at a local coffee shop where we played games over coffee! I’m so pumped with this group! They are serious about diving deeper with Christ and becoming Godly leaders!
Her hands hold love.
Her hands hold compassion.
Her hands hold our family together.
Her hands hold truth.
My Gram is in a bed right now in Tacoma, WA where she is receiving medication to keep her pain free as well as breathing treatments every few hours to help her feel like she is not suffocating. The fact is her lungs are operating on borrowed time. The doctors can’t believe she is still alive.
Last week an anonymous donation came in for the purpose that I could sit by my grandmas side and tell her not just how much I love her but how much God loves her. We spoke about heavenly things… Salvation was confirmed and I was able to leave that hospice room after 30 hours together and return to the airport to come home to Denver.
Grandma Karen is a woman whom I probably get my stubbornness from =) also my love language of touch. I remember every time I stayed the night with my grandparents my gram would just run her nails softly over my back for like an hour before bed, her hugs never ran out and the first thing she did when she saw me Friday night was hold my face in her hand… a complete sense of comfort and unconditional love would always wash over me. Growing up life had many ups and downs but my grandparents were always the rock. The one constant stability I could count on!
I love my Gram with my whole heart! She amazes me with her determination and strength. She is fighting for every breath but she dreams of gaining strength and walking again. I pray this happens, pray with me! Miracles are real! Go Gram!
