Adventure in Idaho

Adventure in Idaho
What a week it has been so far!  The kids are continuing to work hard on fire mitigation, while also preparing the cabins to be prepped and painted.  This week we also have the opportunity to help the camp by running some of the stations for the campers recreation time.  They are playing a version of "The Amazing Race" called The Great Chipmunk Challenge.  Our students are handing out the clues and judging the stations before the teams can move forward on the course.  It has been a lot of fun and something different.  After the Challenge is over, the campers have Missions hour.  On Monday, Russell and Lori Decker shared an overview of Teen Missions and we set up a promotions table with flyers and posters to give more information.  It was well received and the kids had lots of questions.  On Tuesday, Nicole C., Bridget H., Trace H., Isaac B., Caitlyn O., Rebekah G., Sam K., and Hannah I. performed the drama Battleground and then Trace, Nicole, Bridget and Emily gave their testimonies.  It was so fun to hear about what Teen Missions has taught them so far this summer.  Your kids are growing and what a blessing it is to hear it from them.  It made a huge impact on the campers and many of them came up and asked further questions.  
Wednesday we were invited to go whitewater rafting with the campers.  The experience is geared toward beginners and EVERYONE had an amazing time.  We were blessed that another boat was able to come up and take us and the memories made are priceless.  The grins on their faces may still be there when they arrive home in August.
Today we will resume our missions sharing hour.  The whole team will do a puppets presentation and then Eugene and Shelbi will share their testimonies.  We will then go back to work on the cabins and try to get as many prepped as possible.  There are 5 cabin buildings with two cabins per building.  Right now we have two cabins cleared and ready to start on.  This is a huge undertaking, but the kids are ready to go!!
Trace H. "Idaho has been great, the weather here still impresses me, cold mornings, and hot afternoons, make up the most bi-polar temperatures I've ever heard of.  We did a beautiful hike up a mountain with awesome views of the lake and other surrounding mountains.  The campers have been great to us.  They're very appreciative of our work.  Having a great time-Trace"
Nicole C. "I am super thankful that the Lord has been able to let me go to this Idaho team.  Our team has also been working really hard on the projects and everyone managed to complete them.  White water rafting and the hike up the mountain has been the best adventures I've gone to so far!  I love all the campers that I've met."
Caitlyn O. "Yesterday was lowkey pretty fun.  We went white water rafting for a few hours.  Idaho is also nice since at night and morning it has been cold."
Bridget H. "So we are now at the second week of being at camp.  This week we have the high schoolers.  It's been a lot of fun and I can see the true purpose in our work.  We've been having several opportunities to share our faith and testimonies, which I really enjoy.  We've had our struggles, but we have also been blessed in so many ways.  I hope the rest of the trip goes as well as it has been going so far!  Bridget"
Timothy S. "The lake on Saturday was funa nd white water rafting on Wednesday was fun as well!"
Sam K. "Idaho has been a great experience for me.  The work has been fun.  When it was the weekends, we did a hike up the nearby mountain and had an incredible view.  We even got to do white water rafting.  We could also go to the nearby lake.  The weather is interesting as in the morning it was cold, but afterwords hot. - Sam K."
Alayna N. "Idaho has been great.  We have been pulling weeds, picking up sticks.  One good thing was we went white water rafting."

Idaho

Our team is 21 strong. They got busy memorizing Scripture and helping one another get organized in their tents. We experienced our first rainstorm on Registration night, but everyone has had nice dry tents!! Orientation day went well as people got to know each other better. We ran the OC for the first time that day and learned a lot. Everyone had a lot of fun, and the formation of team unity has begun! Right now, we have 11 girls and 10 boys.

Greetings from the Lord's Boot Camp!

Over the last couple days, there has been a vast improvement in our teamwork! The kids are encouraging one another and working together to improve on the Obstacle Course each day. The kids have been taking block-laying, concrete, digging, and steel tying classes in the morning.

The Idaho team is doing well at boot camp...

This week we will start some new classes. Puppets and Advanced Evangelism are new to us on the schedule along with balloons.

Finishing Strong

Today is our last day of classes! The kids have been doing an amazing job on the obstacle course working together and avoiding disqualifications. Yesterday two of the leaders ran with them and they got 17 people over the wall!

The Idaho team arrived safely there

The Idaho team made it safe and sound last night!

Welcome to Warm Lake Camp

We arrived late Sunday night to Boise and got to the church around midnight. We let them sleep in until 8:00 and had a nice breakfast provided to us from a special lady at the church.

We are starting to settle into a routine of sorts here at Warm Lake Bible Camp.

A New Week Has Begun

Greetings from Idaho! It's been a relaxing weekend as we finished up our work week on Friday. The team did a wonderful job and made excellent progress on our brush clearing and wood removal projects on Friday. Even though some of the team wasn't feeling very well, everyone did their best and worked together well to help out those that were moving a little bit slower. By the end of work, everyone was ready for the fun and rest we had planned for the weekend!

One more week at Camp

Wow! It is hard to believe that we have been on the field at Warm Lake Camp for two weeks already. Thursday we had a long work day after our day off of rafting. As we have been sharing during the campers Mission Hour, we are trying to show different aspects of Teen Missions that we use on the field.

Last Few Days at Camp


It is hard to believe that we have been at Warm Lake Bible Camp for almost three weeks now. The camp is looking amazing!

Welcome to Caldwell!

It's been a week full of change here in Idaho!

From the Heights to the Depths

This week, the team was able to experience many unexpected but wonderful things. With plans changing in regards to working with Mission Aviation Fellowship this week, we were able to do a sightseeing day on Tuesday
