Growing Stronger Every Day

Growing Stronger Every Day


Growing Stronger Every Day...Zambia 21018

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.

The teachers of their various construction and evangelism classes continue to report how well they are listening and participating in the different activities. Their spirits are still high even though we've had a lot of rain. However, we'd appreciate your prayers that the rain will stop, so everything can dry.

Team Member Testimonies:

Boot Camp...where to start! So far the rain hasn't missed a day which means it takes longer for my clothes to dry. All of this is new to me...very new. But it is all part of the training..much like many things that Boot Camp trains and teaches you. But the most important thing that participating in Boot Camp has taught me is devotions. Our leader, Peter, reminded us that devotions are the most important thing we do. And he was so right. I can't think of a better place to go when you need guidance or help. Sure, it's hot, wet, and smelly, but is it worth the hassle? Absolutely. At this camp, you will learn the values of life and the values of evangelism. I thank God for Boot Camp because the preparation for the field is very, very helpful.

Boot Camp has been an amazing opportunity. I definitely overthought it and I was scared to even come. The amazing leaders, the phenomenal faith focus and scrumptious food keep me on my toes, yet feeling able and ready to learn new skills and grow spiritually. I am pushed to be my best, but also it shows me how I can be accepted for who I am. I typically shut myself out because I'm scared to open up, but I feel accepted by my team. The team growth is awesome; guided by leaders, they conquer battles such as brick-laying, weather, and the brutal (but wonderful) Obstacle Course. The Obstacle Course teaches teamwork and every day we can get better. Rain and low-level flooding keeps things like dry laundry and dry boots a rare commodity. So, we've prayed for sun and some dry air to aid the process. I am having an amazing time with our loving leaders who guide us in spiritual growth. Our team is growing strong with them guiding and God at the helm.

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.

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).

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.

Zambia team is excited to report that we are all safe and healthy!

Growing Closer

Team Zambia Has completed pouring the concrete foundation and is now laying the blocks back up to grade. Gabby, Jack, Josiah,Kenai, Jen, Lacey, Izzy, Mari, and Franshesca, have all layed block, putting their training to good use . 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!
