''Like branches on a tree, our lives may grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one.''
There are many young people (and by now a bit older...) who have done a DTS or other courses at Restenäs during the 90's. If you are one of them, we would like to invite you to a weekend of memories, fellowship and some exciting challenges for the coming years.
During the years 1990 to 1999, Restenäs had some ups and downs, but through it all lots of people came through the ministry during those years and were trained and sent out to “know God and Make Him known”. This reunion for the 90's next June will give you the opportunity to reconnect with old friends, get to know the work of YWAM today and be challenged for the future. We will have Eric Spady, base leader of Restenäs during the 90's, lead us and bless us with teaching.
We will start on Thursday at 18:30 with a gathering in the Aula and then the White House café will be open for fellowship until late in the night. During the Friday we will have a relaxed breakfast, hopefully outside in the sunny weather. Then we will meet in the Aula around 10 together for worship, teaching and prayer. The time between lunch and dinner will be free to spend on catching up, fika, prayer and fellowship. In the evening we will meet again at 18:30 for worship and teaching.
The program on Saturday will be like the day before, but with a celebration in the evening with worship and much more. The café will be open again until late. On Sunday we will have a lovely breakfast from 8:00 – 9:45, then we meet in the Aula at 10 and finish up our reunion with lunch.
