Why do a DBS?
Why Papua New Guinea?
Papua New Guinea is one of the most diverse nations on earth with over 800 languages and 1,000 tribes! It is known as the land of the unexpected, and is a nation ready for discipleship and open to God’s word.
Hello! My name is Katrina. I’m originally from Canada, and I’ve been serving with YWAM since I did my DTS in 2016 in Townsville, Australia. I first came to Papua New Guinea on my DTS outreach and have come to love the beauty within this nation. Not only the beauty of the landscapes and incredible sunsets, but the beauty of the people and the culture – the strong emphasis on family and community, the heart for celebration, and the desire to know God more deeply.
When I think about the DBS, I can’t help but dream about all that God wants to do through people who will not just hear his word, but put it into action, allowing it to transform their lives. He didn’t just give us his word as a good story, but he reveals himself to us through that story. We learn about a God who loves unconditionally, who wants to partner with his people, and who brings abundant life. But we don’t just learn about him. As we dive deeper into his story, we encounter him more and more. And as we encounter him, and allow him to transform us, we make a ripple effect that transforms our communities and nations.
I’m constantly in awe of the ways God has invited me to be a part of his story and can’t wait to see all that is to come in Papua New Guinea and beyond!
