“MKZF takes on Florida (still)”

“MKZF takes on Florida (still)”

“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! 
We’ve been busy and hard at work here on the Teen Missions Florida base. We just finished framing two sidewalks and are going to begin pouring the concrete for them soon. Our kids LOVED getting to sledgehammer the old sidewalks to break up them. I’m not entirely sure if that is a good or a bad thing. 
Yesterday morning we worked on cleaning our kitchen and eating area. This allowed Ava, Taryn, Logan, and Judah S. more time to prep the food they wanted to help make for dinner. They decided on pizza! In the cleaning of the kitchen they also happened upon finding extra food coloring and we had blue pizza for dinner! 
I’ve loved being able to see our team grow closer together and to the Lord in both our Bible study and in our team devotions. They love asking questions which has been very beneficial in helping them to learn how to study scripture in their personal devotions.  
Team Member Testimonies
“Hey Friends & Family! God has been so kind and merciful as He teaches me and "uplifts me with his righteous right hand" here in Florida where He thought it is best for us to stay. The projects we have been doing are really enjoyable, and it's good for us to learn the value of working as a team. I'm excited to see what God is going to do for us!” - Bethany W. 
“This experience has been something completely unique to anything I've known. I've formed such wonderful relationships with each of my team members even in the short time we've known each other. Though there have been many things that were unexpected, we've all been able to grow through it. Through the work that we do I know that each person has been able to have great personal growth here.” - Halle A. 
“Everything is going very well and I have met many new people that are very funny and kind. The Lord has been leading me to many different kinds of people in Christ and He has already taught me so many things while being on this trip. I have grown so much more in Christ than where I was before.” - Ryan F. 
“Hey! Thanks to my supporters and the people that got me here. I gave my life to Jesus and am growing spiritually. Oh and also God said no to the whole Africa thing so we are in Florida still. But I know God has something for me and I WILL find it.” - Hudson C.

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 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!

"MKZF is out and about!”

As I write this we are on our way back from one of our Florida sightseeing excursions!

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.
