Rebecca Cutmore’s exciting Time
Last September Rebecca joined the YWAM – Next Wave to do her Discipleship Training School (DTS) She applied last minute and to her delight and surprise she got accepted. We had two weeks to prepare for her departure, which was a day before her 18th birthday! Her journey started at Birkenhead where the ship was docked and they set sail a month later. They went down to Falmouth to get four new sails then they sailed to France, Portugal, Spain, Gibraltar and then on to Malta. The journey wasn’t an easy one as they faced storms and up to 4m high waves. Fortunately Rebecca discovered she wasn’t sea sick and took to the sailing fairly quickly and effortlessly. Each person took their turn in helming the ship, on a 4hour watch and 12 hours off. Rebecca adapted to her new life on the sea and immediately fell in love with her floating home as she calls it. They spent Christmas in Malta where the lecture phase of the school came to an end. On boxing day they went to Greece on their outreach phase. She is at present in Malta
Here are some of the things that Rebecca did in her own words
Feeding the homeless
So I was a part of the group that went around giving food parcels to the homeless on New Year’s Eve. This man who was lying in a doorway under a thin blanket was very frightened of us at first and was hiding. But when we approached him with the food he came out from under his blanket. We handed him a parcel and said Happy New Year and he very gratefully accepted. After we had. walked away, we really felt we had to go back to him, so we did and gave him 3 more! He was so appreciative and bewildered! Seeing him tearing into the parcel not able to wait for his food made myday. We had been able to bless him in a practical way. We had a short conversation with him then left. It was great to bless and love people in a practical way like this.
On Sunday mornings a few of us help out with Sunday school in the church we are staying with!). We go to the little room upstairs (where the boys sleep!) And play games, draw pictures and have a lot of fun! The kids are adorable, and many of us have become fast friends!
On a particular Friday in Thessaloniki we made a board with a mirror and set it up in the middle of the city square. We asked people to take a look in the mirror, and ask themselves the question ‘Who are you?’ When we asked people what they thought Thessaloniki needed the last week, a common answer was that Thessaloniki needs people who know who they are. We wanted to ask this question to get people thinking about their identity.
Something else exiting we are doing here is supporting a new organisation that has just started! It is called Hope Spot. They run every Saturday to provide a free fun space for youth to hang out at and play games like ping pong, uno, jungle speed, scrabble etc! A team of 5 of us go each time to help out
The Porthmyn Choir being impressed with what Rebecca has done agreed to donate a £100 towards her costs of venturing on such a adventure. More good news is that YWAM have offered her a permanent job on the ship she sailed on.
