Home Sweet Orlando Home

6:03 PM
The first phase of my training has officially started! This week I moved to Orlando and began my life as a YWAM missionary. It's exciting to be part of this huge, global family of missionaries. About 60 of us traveled from many states & countries to be part of this training experience. I'll take more time to blog about what we will be learning in training and the cool God moments to come, but for now I'll just post stuff about Orlando life!

We have all our classes in a church that donates space to YWAM. They have been so generous, allowing us to use their classrooms, sanctuary, and kitchen space. All the students stay in homes owned by YWAM Orlando. Each house has a different amount of space, and our home has three bedrooms. We have 2 sets of bunks in one room, so four of us DTSers stay in there. It's nice and cozy. 2 staff girls stay in another bedroom together, and a young married couple and their baby boy live in the other. We are one big happy family. In the cul-de-sac we live, there's about 3 or 4 YWAM homes, so people are constantly walking over and visiting at all times of the day. It's quite entertaining.

We've only been here a few days, but its been super fun to meet new people from new places and see friendships start to form. More memories to come!

Home sweet home!
