Hello there, and welcome to our blog! We are the Sonchasers – chasing the Son…get it!? Very cheesy, I know, but it’s true. We are, in any case, going on an adventure in just a few weeks and this is the place to read all about it!
Hey, so my name is Josh(2/17/2001) , and I am from the North! Also known as Toronto Canada. I joined the Backpackers DTS because backpacking really intrigued me and combining that with my faith was just all around an awesome option. I wanted to do YWAM to deepen my relationship with God but also make my faith my own instead of what you could say as my parent’s faith. Since being part of this family I have experienced God more than I have ever in the past and my faith has grown so much stronger and I don’t know what my life would be like without God and I’m so grateful to have that faith in my life. I have been blessed with amazing lifelong friends since being here and I couldn’t thank him enough for that. He has really opened my eyes to the world and has changed my life for the better, in the present and in the future! I just need to remember to say yes to where He wants me to be.
Some of my interests are: Backpacking/Hiking, hanging with friends, sports (such as Badminton, Volleyball, and Basketball), spending time with family, napping, watching movies and TV shows, getting active, moving out of my comfort zone, New Zealand and exploring other countries, and finally spending time with God. I couldn’t be more stoked for what else God has instore for me and my team and I just can’t wait to see what he has planned!
