Good Afternoon from the Montana Team!

Good Afternoon from the Montana Team!

Good Afternoon from the Montana Team!

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.

Over the last few days, the teams have been taking part in daily classes. On a typical day, their afternoon classes are Carpentry and Music. In Carpentry, they have been learning to measure, cut and nail. Yesterday we worked on nailing in 90 degree angled boards; this has been a complication for many. But the team conquered it in high spirits. In Music class, we are practicing our setup for our field presentations. The team has been working on two songs. These songs are “Rock, Sword, Shield ” and “I Will Call Upon the Lord”. The team enjoyed singing learning the hand motions to the song. They are starting to sound great!

The team has been greatly enjoying the Obstacle Course; they have been progressing each day. At first many of the kids were falling into the Slough, but we are happy to say that very few kids fell in today. The Wall has proved to be the biggest obstacle for the team; we have only been able to get six kids over the wall. Although this may not seem like a large number it is a huge accomplishment for the team. The Wall boosts the morale of the team and encourages them to keep reaching for their goals.

Due to the rain, the team has not been eating in their eating site and has been able to eat under the Big Top. The team enjoys this because this allows them to eat outside of the weather and allows them to socialize with other teams. Last night Montana did Ran From The Devil against Honduras. Run From the Devil is an obstacle game where the participants are harnessed to a bungee cord. They must race against the opposing team while pulling against the bungee cord. The goal is to place a velcro ball and score the highest. Montana came in first in this race! The team loved taking part in this activity.

“Boot camp is all about getting close to the Lord, teamwork and enjoying yourself” -Kayla C.

“Boot Camp is a challenge but it feels really good to know that I’m preparing to serve the Lord. I don't think I will regret coming here.” -Ellie H.

“Boot camp is truly inspiring and is so much fun! It teaches you a lot. I got a little homesick, but I will be fine. ( Hi Mom!) - Madison Q.

Boot camp is so awesome! There are times I miss home so much, but the presence of the Lord is so strong that it makes me at ease. Everything has been a challenge but praying and pushing through has helped me get through. This is definitely the best decision I've made in my life. Teen Missions is truly life-changing and I can't wait to see what God has in store for the field”- Jake T.

“Boot camp is pretty legit. Everything is broken down into letters. For example, the Obstacle Course is the “OC” etc...The food is great. Great leaders and kids.” - Matthew H.

We look forward to sharing more stories with you next week!

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.

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.
