2012 is going to be an exciting year for Compassion ministry and YWAM Newcastle. God is forever opening up doors for us to be more involved in our community and to reach out to those who need him!
The Compassion DTS is made up of all the Classic DTS Curriculum: Hearing God, Holy Spirit, Evangelism, etc. It also has additional teaching sessions each week on Compassion related topics such as: Modern Day Slavery, Human Trafficking, Children at Risk, Assessing a Communities Needs, etc.
We also do some additional out of classroom activities such as: serving at a local soup kitchen, going on Brothel prayer walks, reaching out to local under-privilaged communities and youth, etc.
The DTS outreach locations also focus on specific ministry. Our Compassion DTS 2011 students went to two outreach locations – one team headed to Cambodia to work with Children at Risk, Orphans, and people living with HIV. The second team headed to Latvia to work with Human Trafficking, bringing awareness, and evangelizing to homeless people.
One of the visions that God has given us as the Compassion DTS is to be a school that comes along side people and loves them. To sit with them in their pain, sorrow, sufferings, and misfortune. To suffer alongside them and display to them God’s heart and love towards them. We desire to be a people who are not afraid to go where there is need and to be with people who need to be taken care of. Our heart and desire is to be the hands and feet of the Living God.
