Uganda Is Trying To Learn To Be Clean

Happy Canada Day! All’s well at the Lord’s Boot Camp! Pack-out day is coming much sooner than we think, but we still have three more times to run the Obstacle Course as well as do a little geography by doing the World Map (a huge puzzle, made out of plywood, of each different country in the world). The team has been doing so well and has been working hard as a team on the Obstacle Course. Out of 13 teams, we have been placing second on the Obstacle Course. Woohoo! While doing amazing on the Obstacle Course, we don’t seem to be doing a super great job cleaning up after ourselves. We got the  “Piggy Award” two more times in a row now. For that, we get to clean the bathrooms as a team as well as wear a funny sign that says, “I live like a pig!” Oh no! Everyone has an awesome attitude about it though. At this rate, after Boot Camp, we will all be professional bathroom cleaners! This week marked the end of our Phonics classes, which Megan Huntington was very fond of, wanting to be a teacher, and we will be starting our Puppets Class where we will learn fun puppet songs to present to the children and in the churches in Uganda. We are so proud of these wonderful team members and how they are persevering through these super tough two weeks. We got a tour of the Display Room here at Boot Camp which tell about all of the overseas Boot Camps and TMI mission bases. We got to see pictures and hear a little bit about what we are going to do in Uganda and where we will be staying. We are now on a downhill roller coaster ride for these last few days of Boot Camp and everyone is getting more and more excited to be heading to Uganda! Please be praying that our pack out will be smooth and that the hearts of the team members will be open to whatever God has in store for them! Have a very happy Canada Day and God Bless. 🙂 Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.”
Emilie Geib – My time here at Boot Camp has already been quite the experience! The Obstacle Course is challenging to say the least, but I actually really like it. Coming here has definitely taught me to rely on God completely and trust Him in everything. I’ve grown closer to my Lord and Savior through daily lessons and devos in only four days of being here.  I am truly blessed that God has brought me here and can’t wait for more!”
Courtney Peterson – The Lord’s Boot Camp isn’t something that can be explained in words. I walked into this thinking that it would be something totally different than what it is. It is so much better than anyone could possibly dream it to be. I walked in thinking I would have super strict leaders and I didn’t have a clue to what my team would be like. My leaders are amazing  and some of the most happy and accepting people I have met and I have only known them for around five days now. My team is equally amazing. We are bonding super fast and I know I could go to any of them for almost anything and they’d be there. My connection with God has grown greatly since being here. The 30 minutes of devotions was something I hadn’t been looking forward to but now it is one of my favorite parts of the day. Overall, this camp has been life changing and although I may complain about stuff at times, I’m so grateful for this experience and to be fulfilling God’s plan for me.
