It never rains for long, but it always rains hard enough to flood tents and soak the laundry on the lines! Thankfully, the Australia team is made up of 13 troopers who continue to keep their spirits high despite the rain, the blisters, and the SBs. After nearly two weeks of training, we are finally coming to the end of our stay here at the Lord’s Boot Camp. Today is our last day on our normal schedule, and tomorrow starts a weekend of fun and learning as both the Missions Conference and the Boot Camp Olympics commence! Our team has learned so much and done so well, and soon they’ll be putting all their new knowledge and skills to good use on the field. This is the last report that will be sent in from the States. The next time you hear from us, we’ll be on the other side of the world in Queensland, Australia! Pray with us that the Lord will continue to bless and unify this team, and that we will all continue to grow and learn in these final days of training. Pray that all of our hearts will be prepared for service on the field, and that our pack out day, Commissioning, and travel will go smoothly. Soon, our work begins!
“I love Boot Camp. Not for the tents or the Obstacle Course, but for my team and the ability to grow in my faith.” – Alexandra Swab
“I think that Boot Camp is a great place to grow closer to God and become a close team with great people.” – Tanner Besosa
“I’ve grown up in a Christian home so I always knew Jesus, but coming to Boot Camp really changed my view for the good. I’ve been able to experience God for myself. Boot Camp was really tough and I’ve wanted to go home more times than not, but looking back it was all for the best to make us the best we can be. My team is great and I wouldn’t have been able to make it through without them.” – Lydia Sadai
“I hate Boot Camp because I’m being eaten alive by mosquitoes, but I am glad I came. I like my team and I’m excited to go to Australia.” – Jimmy You
