In November from the 5th to the 23rd, the YWAM Târgu Mureş base where I serve we were blessed with a DTS outreach team from YWAM El Paso – Juárez, Mexico. There were six girls on this team (two staff and four students) and they were all such a blessing to us here. During their time in Târgu Mureş, they did conversational English classes at high schools, coffee houses and loved on the Roma gypsy children at the Cold Valley village.
Before this team arrived I thought it might kind of hard for the relationship building with the DTS students since the school at the Târgu Mureş base started the third week this team was at the base where I serve at but actually there was not any problem at all and they were a huge blessing to us! All of the DTS students seem to enjoy interacting with this team and getting to know them which was really encouraging to see how they all became like a big family even within a short amount of time.
Unfortunately I was not able to spend a lot of time with this team compared to the previous three teams that came to the base because the first week they were in Romania I was in Cluj, the second week I was extremely busy with the last minute DTS preparations and the third week I was really busy with the DTS since it was our first week of the school. However, I really appreciate this team’s heart for the human trafficking which is something that God has recently birthed in my heart so I was able to have a really great conversation with one of the leaders. I’ll write a future blog entry about this new “vision” that God has been stirring in my heart.
I really do appreciate all of the help this team gave us when the DTS started especially with them decorating for the Love Fest, helping with the meals and the prayer and worship times. The first week of the DTS at the Târgu Mureş base we had a joint community evening with this team on Thursday when we had a special Mexican festive dinner that they cooked for us! The food was delicious and it was like a special Mexican cultural experience right in Romania!
