For Such a Time as This

Hello from sunny, warm Florida. This is Mrs. Kim, one of the lady leaders sending this report. The Florida Dream team is doing well. We have 44 team members and seven leaders that have been chosen by God for something special this summer—just waiting to see what He has in store.

Team health is good. 

It was difficult for the team members and leaders to say goodbye to their teams, but they are working hard to make new friends and to unite as a new team. The leadership is working to get all of their names learned and trying to make this a positive experience for everyone involved.

The last part of Esther 4:14 kept popping up in my head, "For such a time as this". I shared this with the team on Commissioning Night. Esther was chosen to save her people. The Dream Team has been chosen by God to serve Him this summer. It wasn't easy for Esther when she accepted the choice, and it hasn't been easy for the team, but we are all willing to be used by God.

Today the team worked on small projects around the Boot Camp for a couple of hours in the morning.  The afternoon was spent in Bible study class, reading & resting.  This will be our schedule for the beginning of our time here. Tonight we will be involved with our "GG" (Grubby to Grace and God's Gentlement) classes. We are separating the teens and Preteens during our Bible studies and GG classes.

In each report, I will include some "testimonies" from the team members. Today are count off numbers #1-5.  I asked these team members what they have learned this past couple of crazy days or what has God shown them?

Rachel K. - things don't go as we plan instead they go as God plans.  God is taking care of us.

Jake Q. - It was hard to say goodbye to team members.  It has been good to become a new team, encourage one another & help each other through this.

Rio M. - This verse has really spoken to me during this time:
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you & not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

God has chosen us for a reason to fulfill His plan for us.

Aislynn M. - God has shown me to go with the flow and trust Him

Geli R. - I'm learning to be patient as God's plan unfolds for me during this time.

Thanks for all your prayers. Keep them coming!

*Note: Please continue to send your kids emails ([email protected],org)—put "Dream Team" and their name in the subject line. Snail mail is nice too!

God Bless,
Kim Marshall - backup lady leader

Greetings again from sunny Florida!


What a journey our team has been on, and we haven’t even left the state! We’ve been assigned to three other countries, not counting those who signed up for 2020, have had multiple flight changes, and countless other changes in our projects. These kids are continually impressing us with their willingness to work despite the circumstances.

Keep Pressing On.

The team is doing well. We are becoming more & more united as a team/family. The team members who want to do light work have been working every morning for 3 to 4 hours. The team is working on fixing up the training kitchen & other small jobs as boot camp. Team members that are not up to working yet, have been getting plenty of extra rest & relaxation.

Growing Together

The past couple of days since our last report have been good. The team continues to grow closer together. I have forgotten to mention about team devos each night. Each night team devos are led by a team member. We have started with FTM's (former team members) giving a personal testimony & a short devotion, we also have 2 worships songs. 28 June was Ethan D., 29 June was Garrison T., 30 June was Robbie M., 1 July was Ellie L., 2 July Andrew P., 3 July was Rachel K., 4 July Andrew L. & tonight will be Geli R.

Dream Team, Working Hard & Going Strong

The Dream Team is doing well. We have been blessed & enjoyed cooler weather these past few days with tropical storm Elsa. It rained off & on yesterday morning & raining this afternoon. We still manage to be able to work both days. The team is making progress on small projects around boot camp. Some of the projects are cleaning out old storage areas & either taking the "treasures" that are found to the trash or cleaning them up for use in the future. The team help tear down the old visitors' shack & carry that off. The team has also been painting hand made chalk boards that will be sent to the TMI base in Uganda in the near future.

KEEP ON TRUSTING IN GOD

A couple more days have passed since our last report. Everyone is in good health. The whole team was able to work 1/2 days Friday and Saturday in the cool of the morning. Our goal Monday and Tuesday is to have the whole team work a full day on both days The team is working hard on helping with improvements here at the Lord's Boot Camp. They have torn down old shower stalls at campsites, cleaned off the roofs of the walkways and cleaned out old storage spaces.

Best Day Ever!!!

Hello Everyone,
It has been a great couple of days since our last report. The best day was Wednesday, when the team was able to leave Boot Camp for our "Sightseeing" Day. The team was able to go to Melbourne, FL & ride on airboats through the swamps.

Hello everyone!

Well, this is the 2nd to the last report. We are almost done with our mission trip.
