Russia’s Adventures At Boot Camp

28 Russia
As of shortly after noon on Friday, June 21, our entire team of 17 and all four leaders were present here at Boot Camp. Our team has seven former team members which is very helpful for all of us. All of the leaders have led at least one team, which is also very helpful. Through the weekend, the team has had orientation to Boot Camp, participated in the 2013 Boot Camp “Olympics”, done KP for the first time, and participated in the Commissioning Service for the Early Boot Camp teams on Sunday night. As of today, they are now entering into their regular, daily training schedule. They wake up at 5:30 am, and by 6:15, the teams start running the Obstacle Course. Following that, they have breakfast and then personal devotions. Following devotions time, the teams have classes for the remainder of the day, beginning with Bible Hour first and then going on to the rest of their training day. Every team also gets one hour a day of free time and one hour for bath and laundry. Following supper, the kids have some time to visit the Boot Camp store and just relax a bit before the evening rally, which can be viewed each evening via the Teen Missions website.
As is common for this time of year in central Florida, we have had hot weather, and some rain and thunder storms, but nothing overwhelming so far this Boot Camp.
Jakob Voorhies – I thought Boot Camp was going to be a breeze, but I was wrong. God has used the Former Team Member Bible hour class to encourage me – and to encourage me to be an encourager to my team mates. I thank God that He has taught me to be an encourager. I have a great team – good leaders, great team mates.
Erinn Foy – It’s been fun so far and it is a learning experience. The team is getting closer together. The Obstacle Course is easier for me as a former team member and the classes have been interesting.
