We have all been praising God for the last few days of cooler, sunny, DRY weather! It is an encouragement to everyone when that happens.
The team continues to work well together and to bond as a team. They truly are a delight to us as leaders.
Yesterday (Sunday), we had a worship time under the Big Top. We had a time to be a blessing by giving to help ship shoes, clothes, blankets and medical ointment overseas to orphans. There was time to visit a miniature model of the OT Tabernacle and to see the Display Room at Teen Missions which introduced us to the many bases and ministries that Teen Missions has all over the world.
We continue to nurse sore feet and blisters, but have had no real sickness or injuries.
After today, we have only three more training days and only one more time running the Obstacle Course (OC). We will run the Water OC tomorrow and have KP on Thursday. On Friday, we will begin a two-day Missions Conference and on Sunday, June 24, we will be commissioned.
Thank you for your prayers! They are helping!
Michael Hartsfield – The Lord is showing me that I will go through ups and downs in my Christian life, but no matter what, God will help me through and make me stronger in my walk with God.
Brooke Vande Vegte – Coming here, my first thought was “What have I gotten myself in to?” I was feeling nervous and excited all at once. When my mom came to visit me that first night, I most definitely suggested that she should take me home! I am so glad she didn’t! It took a few days to adjust to everything around me, but instantly I found a new family in my team. We have grown so close in such a little time. God has used me in so many different ways to support my team and I am excited to love them as a family. I am ready to see the change the support we will have for each other as we go do the work God has called us to do this summer!
