Psalm 91:2
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.
Hello Everyone,

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.
Today the team watched the live stream of "The Village Church" in Texas, pastored by Matt Chandler in the TMI chapel with the Malawi team. It was a wonderful church service and the team enjoyed it very much. The rest of the day was spent reviewing Bible verses, relaxing in the pool, canoeing on kayaking, or just taking a Sunday afternoon nap.
Wednesday will be our first "outing" going off base for a fun day and we hope to go on an airboat ride. The team is getting excited.
KP - Friday was Ashley J., Noah L., Samuel S., Deitrich M., & Daniel R.
Saturday was Sadie P., Spencer J., Elisabeth L., Benjamin L., & Elijah J.
Sunday was Bethny J., Benjamin J., Caden F., Caleb E., & Saige G.
Team devos were led by Arianna S. on Friday, Lauren W. and Sadie P. on Saturday, & Noah L., & Caden F. on Sunday.  We are doubling up on evening devos, when we don't have our GG classes so that everyone will have a chance to share.
GG class is every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  The teen boys are going through TMI's God's Gentleman revised version led by Mr. Caleb and Mr. Judah, and the teen girls are going through the book "Defined - Who God Says You Are" by Priscilla Shirer which is being led by Mrs. Kim.  The preteens are going through a book called "A Content Heart by Kim Sorgius" being led by Miss Sarah.
Here are the next five team members with their answers to the question - What has God shown you, or how have you grown or been blessed by being here in Florida?
Bethany J. - I have enjoyed the Bible studies, evening devos and GG classes. I have been getting to know everyone and look forward to going home with no mosquitos.
Benjamin J. - This mission trip is definitely not what I expected. I have learned to rely on God to direct each step I take. It was hard to be cseperated from my first team but I have received more blessings by being on the Florida team than I could have imagined. I cannot wait to go home and share how God worked in my life this summer.
Caleb E. - It was hard not being able to go to South Africa this summer, but I have accepted God's plan for me to be in Florida. I am enjoying being on the Florida team more and more each day—a lot more than the first couple of days at the beginning of this new team.
Saige G. - I have learned to trust in God always no matter what.  Things don't go as we plan, so we can't trust in our plans, but need to remember to trust in God and His plans for our life.
Ellie O. - The time on the Florida team has been helping me grow spiritually with God.  I feel that I have grown closer to God in my walk with Him.
That's all for now,
God bless,
Mrs. Kim - backup lady leader

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.

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.

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.
