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!
Hello guys, I’m Pauline (08/05/2001) and I’m from Germany!
I like being active, for example going horse riding, swimming, playing volleyball or hiking (especially in New Zealand!!). Back at home I spend a lot of time with my friends and help in our church’s youth group.
Almost one year ago I decided to do the Backpacker DTS with YWAM Oxford. I wanted to come closer to God, to grow in my relationship with him and to get away from sometimes being a lukewarm Christian. Combinding these with my passion for hiking and mountains this school was the perfect decision for me.
The lecture phase met all my expectations and I experienced God in so many different ways. Before coming to DTS I was really worried and stressed about my future and what will be, but by laying it down before God I found freedom and peace in all of it.
»Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.« 2 Corinthians 3:17
An other part where God really spoke into my life was about how he sees me and where I am in his eyes. I experienced how my picture of myself change and I started to learn more to accept and believe how God sees me and how I am in his eyes.
I’m so excited to see what God will do during outreach and the time after coming home!
