BULAH! Only nine more days of Boot Camp!

BULAH! Only nine more days of Boot Camp!

BULAH! Only nine more days of Boot Camp! Last night at rally, our team started the "Ten More Days" chant until all of Boot Camp joined them. They have been more creative with their team cheers in the past at Rally, even having done a cheer to the tune of the Farmers Insurance's jingle.

Though the days are long and busy, our team has found their groove and adjusted well to the schedule. Yesterday they got the pool after cleaning the bathrooms, which was a very refreshing experience for them all. Two days ago, our team participated in Run From the Devil against the Tanzania team. Some were hesitant about the game, having never heard of it before, but they all had a blast. Eijah ran further than I have ever seen a team member do before! It was fun seeing their competitive, fun-loving sides come out!

So far, we are learning carpentry skills like hammering and sawing, Drama skills, blocklaying, steel tying, and music. Our tool belt of skills is filling up quickly so that we can be fully equipped and prepared to serve others and share the Gospel in Fiji.

After supper, the team members have free time until the Rally starts. During this free time, the teens can go to the Boot Camp store, interact with other teams, walk around and just hang out. However, last night, most of our team stayed in our eating area because they were having so much fun with each other. They were making "human tables" and just simply having good clean fun. Lots of laughter filled the seating area. It was a treat to watch them bond and come together like a family. It may seem like an insignificant story, but I wanted to share it because it is just one example of how our team is truly warming up to each other and coming together.

From the team:

Breanna A.- Hey mom and dad! I am having so much fun other than the mosquitos! Everyone is so nice. Miss y'all!

Michael C.- To anyone reading this, Boot Camp is not that bad. The food is great. Classes are good, including Drama for sure. The only negative thing is the heat and the tent is hard to sleep in because you are sweating to death. Other than that, Boot Camp is great.

All of the Fiji team members have arrived and settled in!

BULAH! All of the Fiji team members have arrived and settled in! They had a typical Florida welcome with an afternoon thunderstorm followed by heat and mosquitos.

4 more days!!!

We can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Boot Camp is almost over, and the excitement on our team is tangible. They are so excited to get to use all of their new skills on the field. Just at lunch today, they were discussing which puppet performances they want to do in the orphanage in Fiji.

MOCE (goodbye) Boot Camp!

Today is the last day of classes and we are all thinking about and anticipating pack-out. For the next two days, we will help to tear down Boot Camp and pack all of our supplies for Fiji. Our pack-out assignment tomorrow is going to be taking down Big Top 2 and preparing all of the food we are taking with us.

The Fiji team has arrived safely in Fiji.

The Fiji team has arrived safely in Fiji. They will be doing a report in the next few days.

Bula! We have arrived safely to Fiji and settled in!

Bula! We have arrived safely to Fiji and settled in! We are loving the beautiful property and weather here. There are coconuts, grapefruit, lemons, and sugarcane all around. Matthias has been showing the team how to open and eat the coconuts. The beautiful Sleeping Giant mountain makes a gorgeous background for our devotions and Bible studies. Our God is truly an artist!
