The Holy Land Team Is Persevering!

Things haven’t changed much since our last report. We continue to attend evangelism and construction classes. We haveseveral  musically talented teens this year, so our music class has been so much fun. The team had the opportunity to do the Noah’s Ark instead of the regular Obstacle Course which was a nice change of pace. Lady leaders have been cooking some food for the team and they eat everything we make—I think it’s because they are so hungry. We watched the Mud, Sweat and Cheers movie after rally Saturday night which stirred some questions like, “Why don’t we have that much free time?” The popcorn was a great hit. Sunday we were able to tour the Teen Missions display room where all of the bases, Aids Orphan sites, MSSM locations and Bible, Missionary, and Work Bible Schools are represented. 07 HolyLand N Spirits are good and friendships are forming quickly.  Everyone is excited to see Boot Camp count down and looking forward to getting to the Holy Land.
Since being at Boot Camp, I’ve learned what trusting in Him really means. From the OC to just walking ’round, I’ve found physically I need to find my strength in Him as well as mentally, to keep a good attitude. I have thoroughly enjoyed Boot Camp, but my attitude and strength is from Him, because on my own I’d fail.    Ashley Mckenna
 
I the past week we as a team has grown closer together and I believe also closer to God. From the teamwork, we’ve worked on trying and completing the “OC” (Obstacle Course), to the conversations we’ve had about our spiritual walk. A shout out to the families of my felow mates here on the Holy Land team.  Lucas Salazar

    This is a late coming comment.. . But I want say it was so good to see you Lucas on Sunday, Father’s Day! We were very happy you wanted us to meet some of the team members, Landon your tent mate, Caleb who shares you like for electronically composed tunes, Luke who has the same boots as you, Arielle whose Mother is from Venezuela and Luaren who helps you learn scripture in a “memorable” way! I met Noel the day of registration, she asked me to write her too… I DID! She thanked me and I gave her a BIG MOM hug! That was very special to me. Blessing to all the team members… hope to meet more of them… SPECIAL BLESSINGS to Mr. Richard, Ms. Gina, Ms. Lisa… and Nathan too.

    PRAYING FOR YOU FERVENTLY. YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS YOU…
    AND THAT’S THE TRUTH!

    TOMORROW IS PAPA’S BIRTHDAY…. LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON SATURDAY. EMMANUEL MISSES YOU! WE LOVE YOU MORE THAN YOU KNOW AND MISS YOU.
