Little Builders Preschool and our Early Education Center are ministries of YWAM (Youth With A Mission) San Diego/Baja. We aim to provide quality and affordable education to our missionary families and families in the local community. Just like Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man, we want all the children who come through our doors to not only gain knowledge and experience a fact-based learning environment but we also want them to know God on a personal level and learn vital social and independent skills so that they can be a well-rounded individual. Our schools follow closely with the Montessori method of learning which plainly speaking leans more towards a project-based learning style. It is very hands-on and offers each student a learning plan that is specific to them, their skills, and their developmental level all while creating a fun environment and safe place where they feel loved and accepted, not judged or a failure.
I've been sharing my journey into full-time missions with YWAM San Diego/Baja over the past few weeks. If you haven't read the first or second part, please go head & do that now so you have a full understanding of what I'm talking about. Don't worry, we won't get started without you!
Ok, so that now you have seen how God worked in miraculous ways to get me to Mexico let me tell you what all He's done since I joined YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in Mexico.
The lecture phase was an incredible time of God showing me exactly who He had created me to be and stripping away the lies that the enemy had told me over and over again. Outreach was a way for me to walk out in that understanding. Like I said before, I knew this was where I was called full-time so I was anxious to get started! *I'll share more specifics about what all God showed me during my DTS (Discipleship Training School) in future blogs, I may even break out my journals and share some of the entries with you.
By another strike of “luck” during my DTS I was chatting with a young woman who had recently joined full-time staff at our Tijuana location and was telling her of visiting before in the end of June and meeting someone on Prayer Mountain. Through the course of our conversation we discovered that, you guessed it, she was that young German woman with whom we chatted!! Can you say, God’s perfect timing??
I joined YWAM San Diego/Baja full-time on February 8, 2006, immediately after my graduation from DTS. I jumped head-first into this faith-based lifestyle and haven’t looked back yet.
Over the past 10 years I’ve had the privilege of working alongside some of the most amazing people in the WORLD!! People who constantly give out of their own need and never complain. People who wake up excited to see what the Lord has in store for them that day. People who LOVE the unexpected conversations with complete strangers. People who genuinely enjoy spending time in the “trenches” loving on the “least of these”.
I am on an amazing adventure traveling the world with Jesus. Join me on my adventure and learn what I learn.
