The time had come on Saturday, February 6. Royal Mission’s second free training day for teenage and youth workers, this time in ‘The Shelter’ in Veenendaal. Seven people from the RM team were already busy setting everything up on Friday. The next morning, eight more team members arrived around 8 a.m. Around a quarter to nine everything was in the right place, time for prayer and consultation. The youth workers started pouring in from 9:30 am. Literally from all over the country. Great to spend a day with 200 teenage and youth workers. The training was strong, the stories impressive and the response extremely positive. Educational blocks were offered at a strict pace, alternating with short testimonies and real-life stories from teenage and youth work. And following each lesson block, a short processing assignment. Sparkling, concrete and challenging! The last hour was spent praying personally for anyone who wanted to. One by one they came forward and were blessed by the RM team. Everyone went home inspired, challenged and blessed. Read here some of the responses we received by email: I am very impressed with the quality of the training. I have a short attention span and normally can’t keep up with any course, but this went very well. Always halfway through reflection and making choices and moving on. I really loved it! Thank you for this blessing, we will work on it in our church! Maarten Bouwman Baptist Church of EdeI would like to thank the entire team at RM for the wonderful day I had last Saturday. Great that you wanted to share your knowledge with us in this enthusiastic way. I feel especially strengthened by the blessing I have received. In short: absolutely great and I get back to work refreshed. Netty de Haas Ned. Rev. Church Nieuw-VennepWhat a wonderful day it was last Saturday in Veenendaal. I have truly never experienced such a tightly organized program in which everything was covered. Clear story with beautiful anecdotes! The youth workers I brought with me were also very impressed and indicated that some things were confirmed that could be improved in our community.
