Hello from Zambia!

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. They were all excited to see the OC (obstacle course) for boot camp in Zambia. The team has begun work projects that the other Zambia team would have been doing before we were combined.  We began digging the ablution block foundation in earnest this morning….  Here are some words from the teens on their experience up to this point: 
Lacey W. “While I am sad that some of our teammates could not come to Zambia with us and that we have to quarantine in the Ndola base for 14 days, I am excited for the new project and teammates.” 
Samara T. “ Boot Camp was everything I thought it would be and way better. I heard from my mom and other people how tough it was, but besides losing eight great people to covid which was really hard, I loved Boot Camp Way more than I thought I would. Except the whole time I didn’t know if I was going to make it to the field. We had sent in my passport to be renewed almost 3 months ago and it still wasn’t there. Everyone said to just pray about it so that’s what I did constantly, as much as I could. I had to tell myself to trust God‘s will to be done over and over again. And they were even times when I almost wished it wouldn’t come. It got down to the last two days and I had excepted by now that I probably wouldn’t be able to go. But God does do miracles and it made it to my house within a half an hour of when it had to be sent to me. God chose every one of us to be on this trip and did miracles to get here. I think He kept it to the last minute so I would pray to Him and learn to trust Him so much more. Even though we’ve already had some rough surprises on the field and it’s only the second day I’m so thankful He allowed me to go on this trip for Him.“

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.

Growing Stronger Every Day

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.

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

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.

Tomorrow we are planning our first trip into town since our arrival. The team is excited! We are also looking forward to our first close interaction with the staff and students here at the Zambia base.

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!
