We are settling in well to our new place which we have moved to, to save money for DTS, affectionately known as the portacottage:
My good friend Sam Rich is writing a blog over the course of his Discipleship Training School course with YWAM based in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Why not pop over there and see if you might find a DTS interesting or encourage him by leaving a comment.

“house exchanges typically save money four ways:
1. House exchange = no hotel or rental cost;
2. Car exchange (common) = no rental car fees;

4. Cellphone exchange = no hassles with establishing a new phone or expensive overseas roaming charges.” – Home Exchanges
