The Mongolia team is getting into the swing of Boot Camp. The team was excited to win the Cleanliness Award on the third day of Boot Camp. The pool felt amazing to wipe off the Boot Camp grime. Additionally, the team has been enjoying doing the Obstacle Course (OC) together as they came in first last night. Boot Camp classes are going smoothly and the team is enjoying working together. It has been fun to have 10 FTM’s on the team, as they are showing the other team members how to get through Boot Camp with ease. Boot Camp has not been without its trials and adversity, but it has been so encouraging to see how the team has come together to work through these difficult times and testify to God’s sovereignty through it all.
Samantha Groves – This summer has been amazing. God has taught me so much already. One thing specifically is when Jacob’s Ladder (one of the obstacles in the OC) fell, at first I was scared, but then I could feel God’s protection ever with us, which gave me peace through the situation. It taught me in every situation. He also blessed me with an awesome team that looks out for each other and I love them very much.
Veronica Rodriguez– Boot Camp has been a wonderful experience, so far. Before I cam to Boot Camp, I really didn’t talk to God because I was surrounded by too many distractions. However, once I spent a few days here, I actually saw how much I needed God. I started praying to God a lot more. I am thankful that I was able to come to this camp. I’ve seen the important side in life and Who I really need.
Sarah Weaver– Today my team asked me to be front flag while running the Obstacle Course. I was very hesitant to do it because I had hurt my ankle a few days ago, and I knew I wasn’t going to be able to run. My team was so supportive and they agreed to walk the entire OC with me! They were encouraging and it really felt like we were working together as a team. I feel so blessed to be a part of this team and to have the opportunity to spend the summer with my amazing new friends.
Irina Peters – We have a teammate who has had a lot of problems adjusting to Boot Campand we all got together and we all went a prayed for her. And we keep trying to get closer to her and show her how to make our team closer.
