Missions Update: The Navis

We are leading a month long staff training for the staff of the Summer DTS starting in June. We have five staff members working with us in the DTS. We are past the midpoint in our four week staff training. We really enjoy equipping the staff and preparing the school together with them. We are continually pleased by how humble our staff is and how hungry for God and purity they are. 

We are glad to say that the DTS is starting soon! On June 9th all of our students will be arriving. We currently have eight students but are expecting a few more to come yet. We start with an orientation week followed by our first week of teaching which will be on the "Character & Nature of God". God is going to be doing big things in the lives of the students during these six months and we are excited to be part of it.

Prayer requests:

  • Praise that staff training is going fantastically and that we have good unity in the staff.

  • Please continue to pray with us that God would touch the hearts of those He is calling to be students in the DTS.

  • Pray that God would prepare the hearts of those coming to the DTS that they would be open to what God wants to do in their lives during the school."



Annu and Josh Navis work with an organization called Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in Evijärvi, Finland. They lead a six month long bible schools called DTS (Discipleship Training School). Their heart is in discipling and raising leaders.
