Holy Spirit in Wales!!!
So, before we left, we were talking about the woman who was going to be the speaker for the week, Mariette Louw. We were sitting in the living room and Rob said “She brushes her teeth with demons!” While hilarious, this was also intimidating. So, we loaded up the and set off with me, at least, not knowing what to expect!
We arrived at the YWAM base in Wrexham, Wales, and were immediately welcomed by the wonderful staff and DTS students! For that week, it really felt like we were one big DTS, not two separate. The Wales students, Shelby, Leah, Chad, and Mike, had all been on the DTS since September, but they weren’t exclusive at all, which was such a blessing.
Man, I learned so much that I’m having a hard time focusing and knowing where to start! Our topic for the week was Spiritual Warfare. Because the York DTS hadn’t had the week on the Holy Spirit yet, Mariette took time out to have a special “Intro to the Holy Spirit” session with us, which was really awesome. One of my favorite things about the week was definitely her reference to the Holy Spirit within us as our “Spirit Man”!
How refreshing to know that our spirits can never be separated from God’s. How silly of me to sometimes try to separate it! 1 Corinthians 6:17 says “But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him.” We have a living, active connection with God. All the time.
