The pictures we have all been looking at over the last few months have now become a reality—real teammates to actually talk to and laugh with!!! You will be pleased to know that our team has settled in and is thriving at the Lord’s Boot Camp, despite the hot days and rainy evenings. We have spent the last few days becoming acquainted with how things work at Teen Missions and also with each other. The busy schedule, bathing in buckets, living in tents, and just being away from home has been a culture shock for some. All are welcoming the challenge though and are increasing in faith and drawing closer to God. Although our team is still adjusting to the long days and packed schedule, we as leaders are confident that we will be equipped physically, mentally, and spiritually when we are commissioned in two weeks to serve the Lord in Mexico. We have been blessed with a compassionate, respectful, and motivated team and we thank you for sending your sons and daughters, your most precious earthly treasures, into our care for the summer. Hopefully you are getting some quick peeks of your children during the Boot Camp rallies that are broadcasted live each night. Postcards have been written by each teammate (unless they were driven to Boot Camp), so be on the lookout for those in your mailboxes!!!
