The Uganda Soccer team is doing wonderful at Boot Camp! We have been learning drama, puppets, music, construction, evangelism, and so much more. Yesterday we won the Obstacle Course and the Clean awards!!! So today we will get to swim in the pool (like yesterday). Some of us enjoy Boot Camp more than others, and some are more excited for Uganda than others. We leave in seven days, so we still have a lot to learn before we leave. Oh, and we can’t wait to get our team t-shirts!
Claire Mosby: Our team is getting along very well even though we are only about a week into the trip. We are already acting like family. We are all sweaty, dirty, and some are homesick, but I am so glad I’m here. I thank the Lord for giving me the strength to get through the hard moments of Boot Camp and I know He has a great plan for this summer. I can’t wait to see what it is!
Esther Jones: Throughout the first week of Boot Camp we have been challenged to accomplish many things. Between the early morning Obstacle Course, daily classes, and different activities, there’s not a moment of silence. I grow to know my team mates everyday and learn how God is using each and every one of us. Boot camp is a time to learn about yourself and the world we live in, and we can’t get this anywhere else.
Kristina Kroemer: It’s hard to believe that we’ve already been at Boot Camp for a week! It’s rained every day, so it hasn’t been too hot. We’ve learned a lot, including drama, puppets, and construction. We’ve been getting better at the obstacle course each day, and we’ve grown a lot as a team.
Lane Carson: Our team has really come together over this short week. We have learned how to work with each other. For example, we got 14 people over the Wall! At the beginning we only got three, and we disqualified. We keep improving every day!
Braden Denmark: It’s Boot Camp…. Sweat, dirt, and stinky bodies, but all praising God like no other! We’ve been growing as a team, conquering the Wall and Obstacle Course without a DQ (disqualification). Raising money for Aids Orphans and Street Children, we gave $1,500. The Lord is definitely working in our lives and Uganda is only seven days away!
Aaron Smith: This is my first mission trip, and I am so excited! Boot Camp is hard, and it’s not my favorite. The hardest part is going over the 12 foot wall on the OC (Obstacle course), but I did it! It has rained every day, and we enjoy the rain! The rain keeps it nice and cool so it hasn’t been too hot. I really like my team, and I fit right in. We can’t wait for Uganda!!!!
