YWAM AthiRiver the mother of many YWAM bases/location in East Africa and Central Africa it is a beautiful place to be. They have a game pack on... their land where you can see giraffes, antelopes, zebras and many coolest jungle livers. Being part of the YWAM global family they are involved in doing Mercy ministries, training programs and evangelism. You will enjoy your time whenever you visit them. Wonderful hospitality, warm friends from all over the world and environment will capture your attention. With these few words I therefore recommend YWAM AthiRiver as a place to be. Karibu!read more

Away from the clamour of urban life, this YWAM Base is an ideal getaway for one to be able to detach and zoom-in on the more important things of life... - especially concerning Christ & God. Did I mention the abundance of giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, etc just close by in the bush-bush?read more

Catching Up
DTS Week 3: The Nature & Character of God (Teacher - James Chege)

The April DTS is well underway.
This morning, we caught up with a handful of the students on how Week 3 is going.


"It's actually very challenging, according to me. This nature and character of God, we have to be very careful as we differentiate them since they are actually linked up so much... Umm... It's of course interesting to learn new things. It's good to be challenged, but I am loving it."

"I'm really enjoying the lectures this week. I find it interesting because there's a lot that I have learned.
I [also] find it tiring, I think because we have had evening sessions the last two days... "

"Actually, this week, I am not getting anything...
The whole thing is complicated, even if he used simple words... That topic of God's holiness is giving me a problem... "

"One thing that I really loved that I did not know, that I learned yesterday; that God can appear to man in form of God and can also send a messenger, like in the story of Jacob (as an angel) and in the story of Moses (as God Himself)..."

"The first day was alright, but since yesterday, I have just been floating...
More time should be taken to explain that part of God's holiness... "

"I wanted more time on the Trinity, which I know he will do tomorrow. Yesterday we only did like 10 minutes because we were a bit delayed yesterday. So we did have a lot of time on God's holiness and on Him being eternal. So, personally I would like to have more time on the Trinity, which I know He will handle tomorrow."


An interesting range of viewpoints from some of the 15 students in this lecture phase.

Please keep them in prayer as they continue this week with James Chege, and through all the weeks to follow, with one goal; knowing God and making Him known.
