Awesome Weekend at Boot Camp!

On Saturday, our team had a normal training day of classes. We continued with music class and began our new classes in Advanced Evangelism (learning how to share God's Word) and Puppets (learning how to share God's love through puppets). For our evening meal, we enjoyed delicious pizza that was made in the huge pizza oven next to Big Top #2 and a yummy chocolate milkshake that was made in a huge 500-gallon container. There were two "shakernauts", as TMI calls them, that went down into the container to help mix the shake.

Sunday was a much more relaxed day with a beautiful Galilean service at 6:15 a.m., followed by breakfast and then devotions. The rest of the day was spent at our campsite changing tent partners or at our eating site having some team time and taking care of team business. Mr. Steve shared some "miracle" stories from his past teams and encouraged each of us to ask the Lord to do a mighty work in our hearts and on our team this summer. He reminded us that the Scripture tells us that "we have not because we do not ask". We want to be diligent to ask the Lord to give us everything that HE would have for us this summer.

Team Member Testimonies:

Boot Camp has been a huge wake-up call for me. Before coming here I was not reading my Bible or having set aside time with God. But the first day I got here I felt God. I really did feel Him! The leaders and the speakers have opened my eyes, encouraging me to read and study the Bible more. I see Jesus in every person here and I feel the love of Jesus. I believe that it was God's will for me to come to Teen Missions Boot Camp and Jesus has changed my life. -Jessie E.

Here at TMI, I have had many experiences. Besides the obvious: bucket washing our clothes, mosquitoes, rain, sunny skies, and temperatures above 90, I have realized that I can get up and get out the door (in this case...a tent door) in less than five minutes. The Lord has blessed me with an excellent team. I normally have a hard time joining groups, but this group has made me feel welcome. Everyone looks out for each other and when we run through the Obstacle Course, they cheer each other on. Boot Camp is a great experience and I highly recommend Teen Missions.

Excited to be together!!!

Our team of 12 girls and 12 guys all arrived by Saturday evening. From the beginning, the team seems to be working together and enjoying each other's company. On Orientation Sunday we learned more about what is to be expected over the next two weeks of Boot Camp. Monday was our first day of actual training. Our team enjoyed learning how to mix concrete and lay blocks and were able to get some evangelism training in drama and music classes.

Growing Stronger Every Day

One of our highlights happened first thing this morning (Wednesday) when we ran the Obstacle Course. The last obstacle that we do as a team is the Wall. It is a 12-foot wall that is completely flat on the front. It takes the entire team to boost and pull each teen over the wall. morning the team celebrated as they got 12 over. It is exciting to see them growing closer together and learning to work as a team.

Greetings! Wonderfully Blessed

Following our original itineraries 19 of our team safely arrived in Washington Dulles and we are blessed by a host of believers in the area,...

Hello from Zambia!

Hello from Zambia, we’ve been here a few days and are getting used to the time change. After a long night of rest the team got to get a tour around the Ndola base and see the BMW projects and gardens.

Hello from Zambia

We are working on two buildings here in Ndola and the team is making great progress. The footer on the ablution block is already down to our shoulders in most places. On Sat evening the team enjoyed some group games for fun night. Even though we couldn’t leave the base on Sunday we were able to do our own small service and it gave us a chance to work on our team presentation. We caught up on versus on Sunday afternoon and enjoyed quizzing with quite a few getting their first quiz-
out!

Laying a Solid Foundation

Hello from team Zambia!

We have been making great progress on the work site. We are digging a foundation and will be able to pour concrete after the inspector comes.

Peter, Joel, Albie, Samara, Grace, Jonathan and Joseph have worked on mortar and concrete mixing. The trenches on the larger building are getting closer to completion as well.

Visiting Victoria Falls

It has been a hectic few days for Teen Zambia with many exciting experiences packed in a short period of time. The team spent 12 hours on the bus on Wednesday traveling from to Livingstone for our sightseeing.

Nearing the Finish Line

After an amazing sightseeing trip we are back at the Teen Missions base in Ndola. We dropped the nine Leader Development team members of our group and leader Peter in Lusaka for their flight to Debrief. It took some getting used to having a smaller team, and we had to fix our count off :-).

On the Move!
