School of Biblical Studies (SBS) Video!

We at YWAM Montana are blessed to have incredibly talented videographers among us – Josh and Emily Brooks have made several short films and if you click on the picture above or link below, you will find a short video about the School of Biblical Studies.  This particular film was majorly created by two students from last year, with the help of Josh and Emily.

The film has several of my students from this past year and gives a glimpse into the heart of SBS.  I hope this works and that you will better understand what you are investing in!  There are also several other videos on this page from Montana and different outreach locations (like Indonesia)…feel free to watch any and/or all of them!  There is a very cool video of the lightening we’ve had around here lately – he made the video in slow motion so you can see the lightening bolts. Very cool!

Blessings and love from Montana 🙂  Victoria

Aroma.

Good afternoon 🙂

I hope you’re all having a good day!  Thus far, my day has been refreshing and productive.  I am doing a little spring cleaning and organizing.  Such a good feeling!  A friend and mentor sent me a few sprigs of lavender from her garden today and my room smells absolutely divine!

As the scent filled the air I couldn’t help but meditate on 2 Corinthians 2:14-17

14 But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads in every place the fragrance that comes from knowing him. 15For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; 16to the one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 17For we are not peddlers of God’s word like so many;abut in Christ we speak as persons of sincerity, as persons sent from God and standing in his presence.

“The fragrance that comes from knowing him…we are the aroma of Christ…”  That is so beautiful!  Oh that I would be a fragrance of life to those around me…that through me, Christ would draw others to Himself.  He really is a breath of fresh, sweet air in our lives – bringing hope, beauty, and love into the good times and hard times because of His goodness and sovereignty. Our God is good!

I pray your day is going well and that those around you know the beauty, love and hope of God merely by standing near you!  What a joy to be witnesses to who God is!

Blessings, love and prayers from Montana 🙂  – Victoria

Summer!

Hello!

I am writing to you from my first day off this summer and I am SO THANKFUL. This summer has been very busy. The SBS (School of Biblical Studies) was finished on June, 25. There were airport runs that weekend followed by my summer class starting on June 28. My summer class (EQUIP) finished this past Friday. Our staff training for SBS 10-11 begins this Thursday.

Amidst that skeleton picture of my summer – there were several other exciting things that happened. I will attempt to give a short synopsis for each!

My dad visiting: My dad, for the first time ever, let go of the Newspaper Business reins for a week during the month of July. It took him two days driving from Ponca, Nebraska to Lakeside, Montana. We saw the sites within Glacier National Park, the beauty of Flathead Lake, and enjoyed the tastes of local restaurants. I greatly enjoyed his visit and hope to host him again in the future!

EQUIP:  EQUIP is a leadership training course designed to better equip DTS staff and leaders for discipling students.  My favorite week was with a speaker from Turkey. He introduced us to the affects of addictions, how to meet people where they’re at in this, and walk them out of these. The school was very worth the time of my summer vacation!

Three Days Off: And now for my three days off – My plan is to rest, read, and spring clean!  I hope you are all doing well and will talk to you soon! As always, I love to hear from you. Know you’re loved and prayed for in Montana!

Thank you for YOUR prayers and support. May God bless you and give you a daily revelation of His goodness!

Love, victoria
