The Philippines Last Boot Camp Report

11 PhilippinesIt has been a whirlwind of packing and cleaning these past two days, but it has always been mixed with excitement, joy and great anticipation for what God has in store for our team in the Philippines. The duffels have been weighed and loaded on the bus, along with the carry-ons and travel food and the team has changed into their travel clothes, ready to step on the bus after the candle lighting service tonight. We will ride to the Orlando International Airport with the St. Lucia team tonight, spend the night in the airport and be checking in our bags four hours before our departure. The AC will be a great blessing for the team and I am sure they are all excited to get their pizza, soda and other goodies as well. We are so grateful to the Lord for bringing the team this far and for preparing us in ways we will only realize once we get to the Philippines. We covet your prayers as we travel, for safety, health and timeliness. 

“Coming back to Boot Camp, I had somewhat of an idea what I was jumping into. However, that did not mean I was completely prepared. I forgot how amazing it was to be surrounded by teens passionate about serving Christ. I am so excited now and can’t wait to come back to Debrief and hear all the stories from the other teams. God is going to do so many amazing things!” – Bekah Singh

“I really like Boot Camp. One of my favorite parts is the Obstacle Course. On our last day, we ran with the leaders and when we did the Wall, I was the last one to go over. In order to do that I had to run, jump and grab my leader’s foot, who was sitting on top of the wall, and pull myself up over the top. That was a lot of fun!”- Daniel Chicas


“These two weeks of Boot Camp haven’t been easy, but I learned to lean on God to get me through every moment of every day. I trust Him so much more now.” -Abigail Tajonera

“Boot Camp has definitely had its ups and downs. I really enjoyed the night rallies and the evangelism classes. Coming into this, the first five days or so, I  wanted to just quit and give up and go home. It has been tough for me because I still struggle with homesickness, but I know that this will be such a life-changing experience, that God is with me always and that I will see my family and friends soon. The verse that completely describes my experience so far is Matthew 19:26, ‘But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible”‘. I know God will carry me though the rest of this trip.”- Madison Anderson
