We had Miss Piggy because of small issues like our tent not being zipped up properly and we got a break and didn’t get it the next day. Miss Piggy is an award where the team whose tent sight and Big Top seating area are judged and then the team that wins for the worst has to wear a Piggy sign and be in charge of cleaning the bathrooms during their free time. Then a few days later we got it again because a clothes line fell too low and the clothes were touching the ground. They served their piggy with great attitudes and they got faster and were able to go straight into their bath and laundry time. I am super proud of how they are working together.
The hardest day was when we got the last Piggy was when it was two days in a row. But praise the Lord we haven’t gotten it for the last two or three days. We were elated when yesterday we got all the team except me and one other team member over the wall. That was a total of 16 people which helped us win the OC (Obstacle Course). Today is great. We are headed to free time at the lake for all that haven’t gotten a “Special Blessing” (SB) for talking in class or in line.
As Boot Camp is starting to wind down, our team has started to unify. Through every team SB (special blessing) and Miss Piggy “award”, our team has yet to falter. We continually encourage and love on each other, growing through God, not only individually but as a team. I thank God every morning as I wake up in my damp, smelly tent next to one of my new best friends. I thank God for every count off, every class and every single minute I get to spend with these wonderful people. No, Boot Camp has not been easy by any means, but with grace, God and a little bit of Gold Bond anything is possible for us. Please pray for continued peace and safe travels to and from Peru.
