“Discipleship has been one of the most rewarding things of my Christian life. Firstly, as a new Christian many years ago, I was blessed to be guided through a discipleship course. I am always grateful for that time of learning. It has been very relevant in my life and I am still helped by it.
A few years back, I was asked to consider being a Discipleship Mentor. I was apprehensive and felt inadequate, but I knew the Lord was opening a wonderful opportunity to serve Him, so I knew He would equip me. I started preparing to help someone, what I didn’t realise was how much I would benefit from it.
When the ROSES Ministry offered the opportunity to be a Discipleship Mentor, I was willing to let the Lord use me. I realised that I didn’t have to be perfect or accomplished. Just willing.
I’ve since had opportunities to disciple ladies. Each time was special and I looked forward to our ‘catch up’ times. It’s been a great time of sharing, fun, fellowship and I particularly treasure bonding with them. I gained more than I prepared to give. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve through the Roses Ministry.”
