I used to visit them from place to place.I was deeply inspired and moved by there heart and dedication in following God.That is why I desired to be like them, A missionary one day and serve God.In year 2008 I decided to work in Ywam Dagupan as a volunteer for 4 months.Until one day, the lord show me my next step,to take a DTS Discipleship Training School in ATC Antipolo Training Center September 2008.Before my school's end I'm starting to seeking God trough deep prayer and fasting,for my next step.God speak to me trough dream before my school finished.Things really take place when I decided to come to Olongapo to join with my team in the SUGE Jungle Survival Training program. I was deeply amazed and surprised on what I have seen the building that I saw on my dream was a place in YWAM OLONGAPO BASE.At that time I'm still asking for his confirmation on his leading. 2 weeks after my graduation,God provides for my transportation going back to YWAM OLONGAPO to help and be apart of the Ministry .Its a joy and a blessing to fully surrender our plans in everything to God knowing that he is always Faithful.God is good.

What are you looking forward during your time at YWAM OLONGAPO?
As part of the Discipleship staff in Ywam Olongapo,I want to see this woman being heal and transform trough Gods power.And out from ashes into gods beauty .I thank the Lord for the great opportunity to be hear and to be used by God to minister to this heart broken woman which I can relate trough my own experienced from the past.
before I came to know the Lord,I have been involved from different relationship to another man , looking for a love that I can never find. hoping that the emptiness inside of me will be soon fill in . But I was completely wrong I end up being hurt and abandon over and over again.The Lord is gracious and compassionate slow to anger and abundant in love.He fill's my every need.He came to my rescue and saved me.from stone to flesh he saved me,my heart shape by his hand.from death to life he raise me.Forgiven now I stand and now I'm free from sin and shame.If god was able to help and changed me he can do the same in the life of our Disciples.I hope all of them will able to really encounter JESUS and have a deep revelation of who he is in their Life.May transformation and great Revival came upon each woman's heart and let TRUE CHANGE take place!!.
