Adventure DTS Changed The Way I See God

I chose the Adventure track because I love Nature and hiking, so I was extremely happy when I saw the forest and the wonderful mountains that surround Lynden. It is easy to say that God is an awesome creator when you see the sunset here in the Pacific Northwest. But I didn’t expect it to change the way I see God.

Through the Adventure track, I realized that God speaks to me through his creation.

He is the creator, who not only created us in our mom´s womb, he also wants to have a relationship with us. Through the Adventure track, I realized that God speaks to me through his creation. One time as I did my devotion by a river, I just opened my bible and the bible verse was about a river. It fit so well in my current situation, and I just loved how God used the nature to speak to me. A mountain, a woodpecker or a river, God can speak through so many things.

His heart is full of joy when he sees our delightful faces as we admire Mount Baker, because he made it for us.

He surprises me every day with his new ways of communication. He loves to spend time with us. I loved to spend time in the nature even before I came to this DTS, but now I know that God wants to spend time together with me in in nature, too. He loves to go for a walk with me and pick flowers. His heart is full of joy when he sees our delightful faces as we admire Mount Baker, because he made it for us.

I love the adventure track, because it connects people who have a passion for nature. The location of the base is awesome; we can take spontaneous hikes to a waterfall or to the mountains. It is wonderful to be on the top of a mountain with your friends, seeing the sunset and realizing that it was God who placed every tree and every single person in that place. I am so thankful that I could get to know God in a new, more intense way through the adventure DTS.

John 1:3. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
