Greetings from the Ireland team! We are happy to report that the team is doing very well in their training. Saturday and Sunday we had orientation classes and on Monday, we began our regular classes. In the mornings, the team runs the Obstacle Course (OC). We have four tall guys on our team which makes conquering the 12-foot wall at the end of the course a lot easier. After the OC, we have two Bible classes. The team has been learning how to share their personal testimonies with others. The remainder of the day is devoted to various construction classes, music, puppets and drama.
As leaders, we feel blessed to be working with this team. They have great attitudes and cheerful spirits. Yesterday, we had a work day and we helped construct the Motorcycle Sunday School Mission Pavilion on the TMI property. The team proved to be hard workers! We have been blessed with good health on the team and fairly dry weather (until last night…).
Also, we have to say thank you to the moms and dads for training your children so well! We have already won the “Cleanliness Award” twice!
Alex Ward – Since I have been in Boot Camp, I have cried, screamed, almost fell asleep in class, and worked until I was drenched in sweat. And I’ve only been here for five days (three of those working). I have learned to be brave and to trust that God will not give me anything I cannot handle. He opened my lungs, my eyes, and my ears so that I can run, watch, and listen to everything going on here. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
Toriana Davidson – Hey everyone! I am learning so much at Boot Camp! I have learned everything from block laying to how to work puppets! Along with all the work and evangelistic skills that I am learning, I am really connecting with Christ. I am really learning how to pray and just take time to spend with God. I am trying very hard to hide His Word in my heart. I feel like I will be very prepared for the mission field.
