New Zealand — 12009 (7/6/12)

Cold rain and a few kids (and leaders) with colds are not stopping us from our tasks here in new Zealand.  We have sent 7-8 team memebers for an entire week to a local park to plant trees.  The country is trying to rebuild their native species.  So far we have planted over 300 trees.  Other work occurring is going to schools to do EV.  That includes puppets, ballon animals, and crafts.  This weekend we the girls will be baking cookies and bagging them up to distribute door to door in the neighborhoods.Emily Boucher:
Teen Missions has been a very fun experience so far. What I envisioned to be an extremely trying summer has been, thus far, quite enjoyable.  I’m enjoying getting to know all my team members and learning about where they come from.  God has been so faithful to me in so many ways.  I can’t wait to see what he has in store for the next season in my life!Tucker Langehans:
God is really working on us here in New Zealand, changing hearts and challenging faiths.  He is everywhere we go and I praise Him for that.  My experiences have really been wonderful and I will always remember them.  I am so glad to have been able to have this opportunity and hope that anyone who is given it will also take it.  It’s truly amazing.

    I want to let the team know (especially Brianna), that I am praying for all of you, as is my church, Faith Bible Church, Agawam MA. I’m sure I speak for many when I say you are missed much but I am so blessed by your faithfulness and the work you are doing in God’s Holy name. God bless!

  2. Great update! I’m praying for you guys!!

    Good to hear what our kids are up to. I know all of us who haven’t seen a photo of our kids, or seen a quote from them are waiting with bated breath. 🙂 Is my kids planting trees? Good, then she’ll know how to help me in the garden when she gets home.

    I know God is blessing and growing our kids as he shows them he can use them to send out his Word. And we know that his Word never returns void.
