Today is the 27th of June and we only have 10 days left! Who would believe time could fly by so fast. We are into our daily schedule and everyone is doing really well. We have only had two team Special Blessings from Registration Day and we have already served them
Our 16 girls and 10 guys are coming together as a family as we work on drama, puppets, music and most importantly, eyeglass training.
We have spent the last couple of days surviving the rain. It is allowing us to have our own personal pools in our tents. We are adapting and learning from it!
Elizabeth Leduc – Boot Camp has been different from what I expected. My brother, who came two years ago, warned me it would be challenging, but I didn’t really understand how much until the first couple of days here. A lot of it has been difficult. Some of us are homesick, some are battling blisters and bug bites and a couple of us dread the Obstacle Course every morning. Through these struggles, we have grown closer to each other as a team and closer to the Lord in our personal walks with Him. We have also learned how truly blessed we are with luxuries, such as not sleeping in tents with lakes from all the rain. We are excited to go to Cameroon and share the amazing love of Christ Jesus with people who are so needy. As we push through these next two weeks before leaving for Cameroon, we keep in mind Philippians 4:13: “I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENETH ME.”
Lisa McDonald – Revelation 7:1-4 always reminds me that God will save us and protect us through all troubles and obstacles like bucket bathing, bucket flushing, the OC, SBs, KP or even if we get DQd. But through all our struggles in Boot Camp, God makes us grow closer to Him and to each other. Through the rain, the slough and very little sunshine, God has brought me closer to Him and my teammates. I love the OC. Yes, I know I am crazy. I love Boot Camp. Yes, it is insane. But I mostly love the people and can’t wait to get to know them more.
