Jasper just arrived In the first week of August 2017 so here is a little bit about her.
Why did you come to YWAM Olongapo?
I'm from Laguna, which is where I first came to know YWAM where I was originally one of the young people in YWAM Laguna. While I was there I started to join in with all ministry and I learnt a lot. When I was 14 years old I accepted God and God spoke to me about Olongapo and gave me a heart to go to Olongapo . Many years passed and I didn't remember what my heart desired before, until God spoke to me again about this place . I was scared because about the ministry here . I knew that the ministry in Olongapo is extreme, but again God put it on my heart I did my DTS in YWAM Antipolo in 2016-2017 and one of my classmates was a former trainee of YWAM Olongapo. Over all this time, the Lord brought back my passion and stirred up my faith to GO. GO is the one word I got that why I am here now.
What or who inspires you?
I am inspired by God how he moves in the life of the women like the story of Ate Marlene. The time I accepted God, I was watching television in 700 club (a Christian TV channel) and I said to myself that I will go there ,not for my own but for others who need God .
What are you looking forward during your time at YWAM OLONGAPO?
I am looking forward to working with the youth here will rise up and be the next generation of leaders and God will use the youth to evangelise to transform lives and to transform the hard heart to soft heart.
What is one thing God taught you last year ?
The Lord taught me how to forgive and let go of my past. I see how God embraces and loves me for who I am and how he forgives and forgets. I am a new creation, the old has now gone and the new has come. He has called me out from darkness into light and given me a future that I don't deserve, but because of his love and great kindness, now I am able to walk in freedom. I have been able to forgive and let go of those people who hurt me in the past.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy reading books because i learn and refresh my soul to God or sometimes watching a teaching in youtube because i believe that i can't give if I'm nothing and this is my personal time with God, time to hear Him more and clarity of His word to me
If you can travel in any country were would you go ?
Singapore, I see myself living there , ministering and doing evangelism . It is one of the richest countries but I believe God will do amazing things with me in that place
