Zimbabwe 6/19 12003

Greetings from the Zimbabwe team! Other than a few colds and allergies, we are all well. Every day our team improves in their ability to function well as a unit. To see the team members come alongside those members who are struggling to learn some of the new skills is such a joy to observe. Their team unity is obvious as they run the Obstacle Course, quiz one another on memory verses and practice their witnessing skills.

Jonathan Chadwick – I have seen God move in so many ways and it has only been a week. I have fallen in love with Boot Camp! Back home, I was frustrated with all of the distractions. Here, it is just God and me and an incredible team! My faith has been able to grow in amazing ways. I can’t wait to get to Zimbabwe to see how God will move in and through me and my team.

Lynelle Thrush – The biggest lesson I have learned so far is to persevere, even when it is hard. I am learning to glorify God in all that I do each day. I am actually enjoying myself during this training. I am so excited for Zimbabwe.

Ashley Bartel – God is becoming part of everything in my life here at Boot Camp. With morning devotions, I am able to set aside everything and focus on Him. I have become stronger when it comes to prayer because it is essential to get through Boot Camp. I see God best in nature, making this whole experience incredible. I am excited to see what else he has for me this summer.
