We have a fantastic team of 11 team members and four leaders. Everyone is excited that our head male leader is one of the coordinators at the TMI base in Madagascar. He is able to answer our many questions concerning the culture and what it will be like in Madagascar.
As a whole, the team is a bit quiet and shy, but they are rapidly increasing in their boldness, so they should be well prepared for evangelism as soon as we arrive. Everyone is getting to know one another and we are all enjoying our training classes. Their attitudes are great and no one seems to be complaining about anything, no matter how “challenging” the circumstances may be (wet tents, rain, mosquitoes, etc.).
Joel Harbin, Cassidy Clyde and Jane Young have all had the opportunity to spend an hour each in the Boot Camp “Prayer Tower” praying for all the team members serving the Lord this summer with Teen Missions. They also prayed for all of TMI’s bases around the world.
The evening rallies are everyone’s favorite time of the day—meal time is right up at the top also. By the way, you can watch the evening rallies by going on our web site. Our team is working hard towards winning the cleanest tent site in Boot Camp so we can go swimming in the pool.
Keep the letters and emails coming! We all enjoy a little news and encouragement from home! To all our families and friends, our team says, “Hi and we love you!”.
Hannah Parnell – Since I have been to Boot Camp, I have been amazed at how everyone is so friendly and nice. I have never been in a group this large where everyone is sharing smiles, hello’s, and high fives so enthusiastically! I have also been pushing myself to become more bold which will help me in when I teach and witness in Madagascar.
Cassidy Clyde – I’m so glad I came to the Lord’s Boot Camp! The classes and training are challenging, but so worth it! Everyone is so bold about their faith. It is really encouraging me to step it up in my faith.
