Our name is JUSTICE DTS because God has called us as a school to focus on many areas of injustice in the world and to learn how to bring healing, restoration through God’s LOVE! For three months we’ve been learning about the character of God and how to make Him known among the nations, and also how to become a blessing in four specific areas of injustice in the world which are: WOMEN AND CHIDREN AT RISK, HEALTH CARE, JUSTICE WATER, NAUTICAL.
In three months we have seen God radically transform the lives of all these young peoples. We’ve seen them receive the Holy Spirit in mighty ways and step from darkness, shame, condemnation, unbelief, and into a new life with Jesus. We believe that God has anointed these DTS students just as he says in Isaiah 61 -
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news
to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and
release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of
vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow
on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the
display of his splendor.”
We will be traveling to five different locations in Haiti and our desire is to begin the foundation of the future YWAM Port-au-Prince base by connecting and building relationships with Haitian pastors and ministries around the nation. We would love for you to stand in prayer on behalf of our team here are their names: (Amanda, Mckenna, Mattea, Ikaika, Sindre, Sophie, Nick, Rodberry), the future of the YWAM Port-au-Prince base, and that the hearts of the Haitian people will be ripe for the harvest!
We mentioned in our last update that the HAITI TEAM would be doing many different ministries such as mass weddings in 4 different locations, wedding seminars, children and youth ministry, and partnering with Justice Water to build a 2,500 gallons rain catchment tank to provide clean water for the village of Kanj. We are very honored and excited to announce that we have officially received all the following items for the wedding ministry, thanks to you!

• 85 Bridesmaids dresses
• 28 Women shoes
• 9 Men’s shoes

On behalf of the entire Haiti outreach team we are so grateful, and humbly say THANK YOU to all of you that partnered with us in supplying these items needed for doing the weddings in Haiti!! We pray that you “will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:11). Thank you for your heart of generosity and all the hard work, prayer and money you have put into this outreach to bless God’s Kingdom in Haiti.
We currently are still trying to raise a total of $6,000 US to cover all marriage certificates and receptions for the weddings. God has greatly blessed us in providing $1,575 US. We are still in need of $4,425 US to reach our goal. If you would like to donate financially toward the Haiti outreach team please click here to donate.
