My name is Cody and I am from San Diego, California. I am 14 and in the 9th grade. I first heard about Teen Missions when we got a magazine in the mail. My mom brought it in and asked me if I wanted to go. I agreed and asked my friend if he wanted to go with me. He said he did and with that we started to raise our support. I wondered how we would ever get the money, but God provided and I actually got more money than I needed. I arrived at The Lord’s Boot Camp around 10 at night. I went to my tent and tried to get some sleep. I got up the next morning and I was so tired. The next few days I thought it was terrible—no ice, the heat and mosquitoes. But then God reminded me that what seemed so alien to me was a reality for so many people around the world. Now it’s not so bad. I actually kinda like it. You just have to remember, “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me”.
