Previous Post Blog Action Day

img_0159.JPGLast week I had the privileged of hanging and speaking to the YWAM Winnipeg DTS on justice and purpose. On Friday we had a response time and the following is what came out of that. I wanted to do a group post so here are some quotes from the students in the DTS.

Carolyn “Child abuse has really hit me, it is overwhelming. God sees them as being these precious beautiful kids and is sick of the way people are using them. Abusers don’t see them as people but as an object to have fun with.”

Carrie “I’m frustrated. I’m a very passionate person and it overwhelms and frustrates me sometimes because it’s too much. I feel like I can’t do everything that I love. But this week I felt like there’s little passion. Where did it go? But I think the problem is I need to see. I can’t just look at pictures and stats. I am overwhelmed but I think I need to be devastated. I don’t know if my eyes are closed or I don’t know where I’m going. I’m really confused right now. Matt. 12:20-21. His name will be the hope of all the world. One emotion I’ve felt is hope this week. I don’t feel defeated like the world is too much to save but God is hope and God is victory and there is nothing Satan can do to defeat us so I already feel hope but I feel frustration at the same time.

Devin “The other day when you were talking about people selling their children as slaves, made the most impact. I am close to my sister and I was thinking what if it was my family in that position? I was trying to put myself in their shoes….if we were in another country, thinking about that being my family.”

Mike “At lot of times we learn about these facts but after time we need to try not to forget about it. We need to do something about it to remember. We cannot forget about it, it becomes apse.”

Jasmine “Two words I just keep thinking about is “Do Something”. We have been presented with so many different justice issues this week and it can be overwhelming but It’s like “ Do something” The week has been uncomfortable, but you can’t ignore it. I think it will get worse if you ignore it. Loves’ greatest threat is not hate, it’s indifference. At this stage I don’t know what to do, but I can’t use that as an excuse to do nothing. ”

Crystal “I feel like my heart is broken. But my heart has been breaking all along. I ‘m a t a pivotal point in my life where I’m trying to figure out what to do with it. ”

Jamie “One of the things for me that switches from this passion to something personal is when it becomes personal. It wasn’t until I became neighbors with the poor, that it became personal. Out of intimacy comes ministry. The greater the intimacy, but the greater the impact.”

Kim “Roses to prostitutes has been running 7 years in Winnipeg. This summer we gave out roses and and one girl came running up the team and said she was on the streets last summer an she got a rose and turned her life around. Was it worth it one rose in 7 years that made an impact? I think so.”

Dino “woof, bark, howl, woof bark.”

Lindsay “I guess since I moved here early February, almost a year, I’ve seen lots of this stuff first hand. Lots of the things you’ve said I’ve felt and said . I think it’s important to start with little things…getting to know the kids in the neighborhood and love them. The DO SOMETHING thing is really important.”

Thank you Winnipeg DTS for sharing your hearts with me and each other this week. It has been an honor speaking into your lives and having you speak into mine. I will see you again soon.
