Hello from the Philippines team! We have just started our first week of Boot Camp and everyone is very excited that classes and training for going overseas have started. One thing that is very wonderful is to look at the team and just see how much everyone has bonded over these past five days and to see how they step in and help each other. It is truly a blessing from God how all 13 kids are getting along with each other so well. It has rained almost everyday in the afternoon, but that is fine with us because the temperature starts to cool down, which makes it feel very nice since it is normally so hot in Florida. Two of the boys on our team, Dylan Nickolson and Aaron Beals, are doing very well at memorizing verses. Since they have been doing so well with their verses, they have some of the other kids on our team with their memory work. They are all truly doing very well with memorizing their verses and even though some of the verses a hard to memorize, they don’t give up and they practice until they feel comfortable enough to say them to the leaders. To show you just how great our team is working together, when they ran the O.C. (Obstacle Course) for the first time on Sunday they all stayed together as a team and our team got nine people over the Wall, and this took a lot of teamwork. It was so great to see all of them cheer each other on and to hear such great encouraging words come out of each of their mouths. Not only do they encourage each other, but they listen to the leaders very well and they are very respectful towards those who are teaching the classes that they have to take. Our four former team members have stepped up to the plate and are helping the others get through and understand Boot Camp.
