With only three days left of Boot Camp, the team is ready to go to Honduras. Since our last report, our team has grown stronger as friends and in the Lord Jesus Christ. We have started drama and learned the dramas, “Colors” and the “The Cage” already. We have had a ton of fun learning the different ways to spread the Gospel message. We have also finished running the Obstacle Course for the summer and the team did amazing at it. Ike Czaja and Daymian Green were able to get over the wall during one of the last runs and on the last run, the team was together the whole time which really helped them work together and grow as a team. As Commissioning night is coming up very quickly, please pray for us as we are packing out and about to travel.
Cheree Card – I came to Boot Camp not knowing what to expect. During Boot Camp, I faced a lot of difficulties—homesickness and doubt. My leaders and team members helped me overcome both. Psalm 46:5 says, “God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at the break of day.” This verse showed me that if I trust in God that He won’t let me down.
Alicia Jorgenson – When I first got to Boot Camp, I was having a really difficult time adjusting. One morning, I was journaling a prayer and I started to make a list of all the things that I didn’t like about this place, and it ended up being a pretty good-sized list. But as I was making the list, this funny thing happened – for everything that I didn’t like, I thought of something that there is to be thankful for. Like, I don’t like having to wear my construction boots all the time, but I am thankful that I have good shoes to protect my feet . I don’t like having to eat all the food on my plate and not being able to eat as much as I want, whenever I want, but I am thankful that I can count on having food on my plate every day and three times a day at that . I don’t like being able to smell myself everytime I inhale, but I’m thankful that I don’t smell as bad as the guy next to me. I’ve always known in my head that I’m incredibly blessed, but I find it funny that it wasn’t until everything that is comfortable, safe and familiar was left behind that I actually realized that in my heart. After that I actually felt thankful and blessed to be here. Yay God! 🙂
