The Ireland team continues to do classes and they’re learning a lot! They have music, puppets, drama, block-laying, digging, concrete, steel tying, and many more! Each morning we rise at 5:30, visit the restrooms, and than we report to Rapture Practice. They run the OC (Obstacle Course), have breakfast, do personal devotions, and than classes start. They have classes until lunch, more classes, than some free time, bathing and laundry time, dinner, and than finally evening rally. Lights out is at 9:30. We have a nice full day, which is nice because they pass quickly. We as leadership are incredibly proud of the work the team is doing, and the growing bond forming between them all. The weather here in FL has been very nice, yesterday we had a storm and lots of rain, so today is very nice and breezy!
“I’m not going to sugar coat it, our team is tired, sweaty, exhausted, and the list goes on and on. Tears have been shed, blood has been spilt, but our spirit has yet to be broken. We are all going through the same thing and our team is becoming closer and closer. We are encouraging each other, making friends, and trying our best to lift each other up when we’re down. Every single person brings something to the table and we’re trying to pull thrpugh. It makes me proud to be a part of team Ireland!’ –Zack Alexander
‘This is my first time at Boot Camp butI knew a little of what to expect. But coming here, nothing could prepare anyone for the, exhaustion, the sores, blisters, and all of the bug bites. My team I think is coming together very nicely and working as a team. My team works hard and tries to be good. Not everyone likes each other, but this was at least somewhat expected.” –Shayla Vincent
