Happy 4th of July from team Ecuador! Today, as we celebrate our nation’s independence, our team is also celebrating our last run on the Obstacle Course and counting down the last few days of Boot Camp.
We will be commissioned on Saturday and we leave for Ecuador on Tuesday, July 10. Please pray for our team- that they would take these last few days seriously as we begin packing, and that they would open their hearts and be receptive to the Lord speaking to them.
The weather this week has been hot and dry, but thankfully everyone’s tent is dry and the mosquitoes haven’t been too bad. Everyone has been doing well health-wise for the most part. A few of our girls have had colds, but they seem to be getting better. Today on our team, one of our girls is celebrating her 14th birthday. Happy birthday to Abby Lodholm!
Andrea Sunderman- These past two weeks at Boot Camp have been filled with many different things. Here, there’s been lots of different classes ranging from block laying to puppet classes to evangelism classes. All of these classes have many lessons that are not only applicable to the field but also back at home. The speakers have been challenging and they’ve really caused me to examine my relationship with God and my purpose here on Earth. Overall, Boot Camp has been a good experience and our team has worked together well and gotten through several rough patches. Boot Camp definitely isn’t a ‘piece of cake’ but there’s no doubt it’s been a worthwhile experience
