My name is Kristi Hill and I’m from Ontario. I completed my Descipleship Training School (DTS) last summer in 2016, and because I had such a positive experience, I decided to come back and join on staff with YWAM Island Breeze Manitoba for two years! Feel free to visit our ministry website: http://www.ywamislandbreeze.com/ywam-island-breeze/about/our-team/ and read my little blurb (Island Breeze Manitoba YWAM > About > Our Team) about how I joined on staff with the team and what my vision is during my time here 🙂
I had this blog page created for me on our ministry website to keep a personal record of what I’ve been up to in this ministry (and to look back and see what God’s been doing in my life and teaching me), as well as to keep you guys updated on my time here from a more personal perspective. From our most recent DTS promotional videos that I’ve shared on Facebook and that are on our Island Breeze Facebook pages, you’ll learn quickly that my DTS experience was a pretty life-changing event for me, and hence what lead me to join on staff here!
I really hope that you guys enjoy reading the content of these blogs that I’ll be posting 🙂 During my DTS last summer, I posted weekly updates to Facebook sharing what I did and learned during the week and kept a journal of all my experiences! I thank myself to this day for doing those things… great memories man, great memories!!
So… we’re nearing the end of March *le gasp!* and I guess you’re wondering what I’ve been up to since joining…? Well, I was welcomed onto the production team (Whoop! Whoop!), so now I’m a dancer and had my first performance with the team at the beginning of January in front of a pre-school class at a local church in town, I have a growing list of Polynesian-inspired dances that I’m learning, I will be in charge of the garden this year, I’m helping out with promoting and marketing our ministry in Manitoba, and I get to go with our team to Cuba at the end of March for a week this year!! 😀
I’m really excited to see how God works in and through me during this step in my life. There are moments I have where I believe this is where God wants me to be right now because I’m having so much fun here. Any support from you guys, whether it’s financial, prayer, encouragements, etc., is greatly appreciated! Feel free to comment and let me know what you guys think of my blog posts, as well as if there’s anything you guys want me to talk about. Stay tuned for more!
