It is a blessing to have the training over and we are excited to put our new skills to use soon. We got to leave on the first bus out of Boot Camp to catch our flight in Miami. We were able to stop at a rest area a little ways down the road to have our commissioning party. It was late, but we all really enjoyed the time. Thanks to all who brought us so many wonderful treats! We have enjoyed them along our trip. After arriving in Miami at about 2:30 am in the morning, we moved our luggage into a nice pile and waited to check-in at 11:45am. Everything went smoothly checking-in and going through security. Our flight to Dusseldorf, Germany was on time and it was nice to catch up on some sleep we all had been missing since Boot Camp started. We went through passport control in Germany so everyone got a stamp in their passports, which was neat for them to get.
We arrived in Sicily without any major problems. The weather is nice and warm here. We arrived after 7 pm and enjoyed a quick bus ride down to the camp. The team is getting settled in now and we rejoice in everything the Lord is doing.
Your sons and daughters are such a blessing and we as leaders appreciate your kids very much. They will come home ready to share some great stories with you – and they all know how to do laundry for you now too!
