Laying a Solid Foundation

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.We were able to make a small team store so they can buy snacks and other things. We are excited to get to know the staff. About a week ago the team got to go on a tour of the base and were able to see the boot camp they run here in Zambia. They really enjoyed getting to see the OC (obstacle course) and the eating sites they made for the teams. We enjoyed our second bonfire for evening devotions courtesy of “Joseph”‘s expertise with assistance from Matt Moore. Last night’s worship was awesome. Grace has been leading with uke, Lacey with the flute and voice… Issac with voice, and many nights Asher helps on guitar. 
Here are some “weather reports” from the team.
Josiah W. “Hi all. I am getting to use my pickaxe skills acquired from home to dig the foundations of the building we are assembling. It has been an interesting run but, I am thankful I was able to make it to Africa. Today I am on KP.” 
(KP is the kitchen helpers for the day)
Jenna L. “Our work project is finally moving along the digging stage and soon you’ll be able to see a building. Every day we wake up to a beautiful sunrise and every night we go to bed to amazing stars. Don’t even get me started on the BMW students singing. It leaves me speechless. Needless to say, the days are good, the team is great, and God is greater.”
(BMW is the Bible Missionary & Work college that Teen Missions runs throughout the world) 

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,...

Team Zambia arrived safely this afternoon with all of our bags!

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!

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

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!
