We have made it through one week and only have one more week to go. The team is getting so excited to go to Madagascar! Every night at rally, you can hear the screams of the team members counting down the days until we leave. We still have not won the “cleanliness award”. In fact, we got the lowest score (“Piggy Award”) and cheerfully cleaned the bathrooms. We did win the pool three times for the “Godliness” and “Brainstorming” awards. So, on Sunday, we spend part of the afternoon swimming in the pool. We have had some phenomenal speakers that have really captured the team members hearts. We, as leaders are so proud of our team as we watch them challenge themselves to step outside their comfort zones and do what God is calling them to do.
Matthew Harwell – When I got to Boot Camp, it was raining and my tent and all my stuff was wet. I was somewhat mad and just wanted to go home where there is A/C, a bed and where is not these pesky mosquitoes! My first real day, I was wondering why we had to live like this. However, it got a lot better after a while, and I am having a great time and I love my team. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am ready to leave Boot Camp , but I am having a great time. God has opened my eyes in many ways and I am so excited He did!
Bradley – The Lord’s Boot Camp has been awesome. All the people on my team are really friendly. This is the first group I have ever really felt accepted in. The leaders are relaxed, while still getting things done. We have a lot of classes and I have learned a lot of things that will our team bring people to Jesus this summer. I cannot wait till we get back to puppet class because it is really fun!
