Evangelism Work in Montana

Evangelism Work in Montana

 
We are heading into our final week and a half of being in Montana! 

The team has been happily working on their many projects. Due to the number of projects we have going, the team members have been rotating through projects daily. The team's newest project is to paint yellow lines for the parking lot. They will love this because it gives them the opportunity to use spray paint. 

This past Monday the team was blessed with the opportunity to minister to the Agape Youth Summer Camp. This has been the first presentation that the kids have been able to make that is outside of a church setting. There are three different opportunities for the team to be able to minister, so the team is broken up into three groups of eight. The first group of eight consisted of Matthew, Elijah, Mykah, Maddie, Amiella, Sophia, Emily & Audrey. The team got to practice some classic but fun kids songs such as, “Father Abraham”, “King of the Jungle” and “I Will Call upon the Lord”.  Sophia was able to share the “Wordless Book” with the kids and explain the Gospel message with the kids. The youngest group  ( 4-6) was not interactive at all. The team was rather discouraged by this. But the second group ( 7-9) was so interactive and knowledgeable for their age. They would talk and ask many questions, some of which the team was not prepared for. Overall “Group 1” did a great job presenting and adapting to the energy of the kids. The rest of the groups will have the same opportunity to minister to another two sets of Agape Youth camp kids this week and next. 

The team has been able to have some fun this week. Matthew has sat through two different hair cuts this week. First Emily tried her hand at his hair, and Audrey cleaned up his original cut. Matthew was less than ecstatic when the girls tried to teach him how to part and style his hair.
This past week the team has been blessed with the opportunity to hear Mr. Micah and Mrs. Christa’s testimonies. The team has been greatly encouraged to hear the many joys and trials they have experienced in and through working for the Lord. 

Team Testimonies! 
“It has been a lot of fun and hard work. We have painted several dorms and finished a lot of the rock projects. It has been really bonding with my teammates and I have gotten to know them much better and have made many friends” - Maddie 

“The work has been going well. We have painted and cleaned many dorms. I am doing well” - Ellie 

“Work has been exhausting. Finished all the painting. I am starting to appreciate the child, Joel. He is the sweetest. Mrs. Christa and Mr. Micah shared their testimonies, and it is so encouraging hearing their stories of the lives of the people we are staying with.” - Trinity. 


Montana

All 24 team members have safely arrived and have their feet on Boot Camp soil. Over the last two days, the team has been in many long hours of orientation classes. Boot Camp can be quite a shock to many young people. During orientation the kids were briefed on: drama class and the skill of improvisation, devotions and the need for personal walk with the Lord, the basics of the Obstacle Course and many other classes that will be critical for thriving as a missionary.

Good Afternoon from the Montana Team!

Montana — We have come through a sopping few days. Although the skies have been cloudy and full of storms, the team's spirits have been high.

Greetings from team Montana!

We have officially come through the first week of boot camp!
This first week has flown by! The kids have ended some of their classes, such as blocklaying, carpentry and drama.

Final Report From Bootcamp!

We are in the final stretch of boot camp!
This is our final day of training and then we are getting ready to pack out for the field. This will be our last report before the field!

Arrived in Montana!

Arrived to Montana Bible College with a warm welcome.

High Mountains, High Spirits

The Montana team is adjusting to the drastic climate and elevation change. As we are coming into the end of our first week, the team is experiencing dry heat with 30% humidity and an elevation of 4,820 feet above sea level . This is a gigantic change from the very high humidity levels experienced, at bootcamp, and the elevation level of 3 feet. Even though this has proven to be a challenge for some of the kids they are pulling through, and showing us that they are truly dedicated workers.

Fourth of July Fun!

It is a chilly day here in Montana! Ít is 63 degrees with a touch of rain. This past holiday weekend has been filled with many activities. Saturday afternoon the team was able to practice for our very first presentation, unfortunately we were unable to perform with the originally planned church. After we finished working Saturday we were able to take a beautiful half mile hike to the Palisades Falls. The pathway up to the waterfall was a paved road mostly uphill with beautiful scenery on every side. When we got to the waterfall the team enjoyed climbing up the rock face to better see the beautiful creation that the Lord made.

The Montana Team takes on week two!

Greetings from Montana!
We have been working hard here at the Montana Bible College base! We have been working on many of the same projects as last week. We have finished one of the dorms, and have started working on painting other dorms. Some of the other team members have also been able to start painting the railings around campus.

Day of Rest, Day of Presentations.

This weekend team Montana was able to do their very first presentation! We were blessed with the opportunity to be able to attend Manhattan Bible Church yesterday. The team was excited and a little nervous to be able to perform for the Jr. & Sr. High group at the church. We spent four hours practicing on Saturday for our hour-long presentation.

The Beginning of the End

Has the last week really come upon us already? Here we are in the last week of our time in Montana! What an adventure it has been!
