Zimbabwe’s Report!

Hey everyone from the Zimbabwe Team!!! Can’t believe this is the last report we will have to write from Boot Camp. The next one we will be on our way to the mission field.

I thought I would give you an idea of what our day is like here at Boot Camp. Wake up is at 5:30 am, we have five minutes to get dressed then we take the next five minutes to clean up the tent site to make it look as nice and neat as we can. At 6:00 we have Rapture Practice—all the teams meet in the morning at the flag poles where we get a few updates on the weather and news that is going on in the world. After we are done with that, we line up and get ready to run the OC! Then to breakfast and devo’s. Then it’s off to our morning Bible Hour. From there we have the next two hours for free time and bath/laundry. Lunch is at 12:00 Then we start into our afternoon classes. We have music, puppets, drama, phonics, and just starting yesterday, advanced EV. Supper is at 5:30 then we have some free time before we have rally in the evening. Then after rally is over, we go back to tent site and have night devo’s as a team and lights out at 9:30 pm.

Today we did not have music class because we had our first eye-glass class on how to test vision to see if glasses are needed or not. I think it helped get the team a little more excited because it’s what we are going to be doing for the next month. They had fun putting the different glasses on each other and holding up the eye test and testing each other. Something else the team is excited about is tonight at rally our team is going to be signing a song. One of the songs we are doing for our presentation, no other team is doing it as of right now, so the music teacher asked if we would share it night at rally! 

In all the other reports I have told you that it has been very warm here but, what I forgot to share is that it had not rained here. Well that changed last night and when it started coming down it did not stop for a good portion of the night. We were hanging sleeping back on the clothelines this morning to get them drying and then praying that they would dry!

As I continue through Boot Camp, God is teaching me many valuable lessons through prayer and meditating in the Scriptures. I really enjoyed discussing our identity in Christ, looking through the book of Ephesians in FTM class. The problems and guilt of our past have been washed away in the blood of Jesus and we are grounded in Him. Bonding with my team members and learning more in classes have been a good experience, but I’m very excited to travel to Zimbabwe!!   -Emilie C.
