MKZF Team Reporting for Duty!

MKZF Team Reporting for Duty!

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! 
Today we poured concrete, it is hard work but the team LOVED it. I think they also secretly loved how messy they were getting. We have been live streaming church services. So it was really nice to be able to worship in a communal setting, even if the message was via a screen. 
Sunday afternoon after memory verse review our team went canoeing, kayaking, and paddle boarding in Bathtub Lake. There was lots of splashing and racing involved. We also did memory verse quizzing, where we had a couple team members “quiz out” meaning they were the first to answer correctly 3 times. 
We also had our first outing today! We went to the park to walk around and see something different than the Teen Missions Property. It was enjoyable to simply let these kids be kids and have some good ole fashioned park fun. However some didn’t understand why they weren’t allowed on the park “designed for ages 2-5.” 
Our kids love sharing stories and writing “raps.” These “raps” are more so simply the same words over and over with some funny one-liners and someone “making an (off) beat” behind them. My personal favorites are titled “Bread Bags” and “Musty Tent.” Some are still “classics” from our time at Boot Camp. 
Our kids are loving the letters and packages as you can see in the attachments! They miss you and want you to know that they are bonding as a team and having fun working together. 
Member Testimonies: 
“We went to a park and it was nice, everyone wanted to jump in the water. We argued about the tan bark being called mulch for a while. Overall I’m happy. I also knocked Miss Montana into the water and it was worth it.” - Josiah V.
“Hi guys! Its’s Keagan! We tore out the sidewalk and just started on cement today, it’s been fun. I got to work in the kitchen today it was really cool.  I helped make the dessert.” - Keagan F. 
“It’s been very humid here. The funniest thing that happened in my room was Fisher’s story about Sid the Bacon that liked to eat bacon. My favorite thing here has been hanging out with friends and making new friends.” - Judah C. 
“I’m having a wonderful time at Teen Missions currently. Even though that we are staying back in Florida I am still able to experience a taste of the missionary lifestyle. My favorite thing is that every single night in my room we have story time and we rotate who tells the story each night.” - Elijah N.

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 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.
