"The DTS was life changing. I came to YWAM thinking I had my life figured out. This couldn’t be further from the truth. YWAM does a really good job at teaching on topics that youth face in life. On outreach, you will grow so much and God will do amazing things if you let Him. This experience has been the best thing I have ever done."
