"MKZF is out and about!”

MKZF is out and about!”
 
As I write this we are on our way back from one of our Florida sightseeing excursions! I know we planned to travel by airplane but today we tried a new form of transportation. We got to go about on an airboat today. Everyone seemed to love the breeze and the opportunity to see the lake from the middle of the lake. Our fishing boys hung on every word our guide said about the ecosystem of Lake Washington. We even got to see a manatee which everyone seemed to think was super cool! 
 
We ended our excursion by visiting the food court at the mall. Our kids have been waiting for the opportunity to go and eat their weight in junk food since Boot Camp started and today they got to do it (within reason of course ;) ). 
 
This week we also went and served at House of Hope. This organization is an outreach of a local church to serve the homeless and those in need of a helping hand. Our group helped to organize food, pack benevolence boxes, and organize the “shop” where people can come and receive clothing for day-to-day life and also for job interviews. Our kids loved getting to serve the church that we watched livestream for our first Sunday on the field. 
 
In terms of work projects, our kids still get so excited whenever we work with concrete. This past week they’ve finished up pouring a sidewalk on property. We also went around and shaped up the palm trees on property. They are counting down the days until the big concrete truck comes to pour! 
 
We rotate who does the team evening devotions every night. It has been so special to hear each person share part of their story with the team and how the Lord has been at work in them and through them before and during the summer. I know they cannot wait to share stories from this summer with you all. Thank you for all the mail you have sent to encourage everyone! They love sharing pictures and goodies with each other!

Greetings from Boot Camp from the Malawi team!

Greetings from rainy Florida!

Our kids are adjusting well to Boot Camp! They're still appreciative of the rain every day though it has been a couple of days of flooding. Some of us really enjoy jumping in the puddles. Between that and falling in the Slough during the Obstacle Course, we make sure that we always carry around some dry socks!

Welcome to our first day without rain this week!

Our kids are so excited that they can finally have some dry clothes they have washed. I say clean very liberally—we have had lots of lessons in how to wash clothes in a bucket but it is definitely a learning experience! They are getting better at it each and every day.

We're not going to Malawi?

You read that right! Ladies and gentlemen, the 24 person Malawi team is no longer going to Malawi. The kids saw Mr. Richard Barber, the President of Teen Missions, walking up and you could see a little bit of fear in their eyes.

Malawi-Kenya-Zambia leaves tomorrow!

We've started the field portion of our summer! However, we are still down here in sunny Florida for the moment.

News From MKZF (Malawi, Kenya, Zambia & Florida)

Hey everyone!! The team is doing good. They have been working hard. There is a list of jobs to do, so with 2 teams on property we are getting it done fast. Mr. Richard jokes about having to keep finding more jobs for us. They are learning to work together. Right now they are forming a sidewalk so we can lay the concrete.

“MKZF takes on Florida (still)”

Hi family and friends! The MKZF team is so grateful for the love and support they receive through mail and prayers!

MKZF Team Reporting for Duty!

Good afternoon!! The MKZF team is very quickly learning the ins and outs of property. It is still weird to be here and not be at boot camp, however the team is figuring out how to make this place more of a home!

It’s been a busy week here on the Teen Missions Florida base!

It’s been a busy week here on the Teen Missions Florida base! The Preteen teams started to arrive last night for debrief so the base is getting busier and more lively! Our kids loved the hustle and bustle of Boot Camp, so I am sure they are excited to have more people on property.

Hello everyone from the MKZF team!

The team is doing great! We are finishing up week four on the field. Preteens came home and we got to serve them by helping in the kitchen. They left today so we have a quiet weekend before first debrief arrives!

Hello from the MKZF team!

Hello from the MKZF team! It’s been an exciting time here at Teen Missions as the teams from the first debrief have begun arriving. It’s so good for everyone to see some of the friends they made at Boot Camp!

Arrival Report

Greetings from Florida! We officially arrived at Debrief. It shockingly looks very similar to the field! Our travel was surprising uneventful and there were no delays in our journey. The team is relaxing by the pool and lake to help their jet lag recovery. They are all very grateful to have not lost any baggage on the way here.
