Montana

Good evening from team Montana!
 
All 24 team members have safely arrived and have their feet on Boot Camp soil. Over the last two days, the team has been in many long hours of orientation classes. Boot Camp can be quite a shock to many young people. During orientation the kids were briefed on: drama class and the skill of improvisation, devotions and the need for personal walk with the Lord, the basics of the Obstacle Course and many other classes that will be critical for thriving as a missionary. 

The kids have all had their first bucket baths and have found this to be refreshing. They have also started washing their clothes by hand in their buckets. This has been a process for many of the them. Ella and Ellie have discovered that it is easiest to twist the clothes to wring the water out of them. While Candice was washing her clothes she discovered that she had a fish in her bucket! The girls were very excited to figure out how to get the fish safely out of her bucket. Elijah and Albert taught the team the reason why you need to keep your mouths closed while you are taking a bucket bath. 

Today the team began their training. Our first class of the day was drama where they learned the first part of the drama “Colors”. Colors is a depiction of the Gospel through mime drama. Tobias, Phoenix, Elijah and Matthew were asked to learn the part of God. They have been doing a great job! In Blocklaying classes the kids were taught how to mix mortar and how to lay blocks. Although it took a few tries, everyone got the hang of a perfectly mixed batch along with the perfected pyramid shaped line to seal the blocks. Hannah excelled in this class—she was a great blessing to many of the team members who had never laid block before. 

We have been blessed to see the kids grow together the past three days. Thank you for sharing your kids with us this summer! We are excited to see the wonderful opportunities that God will provide the team with in the future. 

Good Afternoon from the Montana Team!

Montana — We have come through a sopping few days. Although the skies have been cloudy and full of storms, the team's spirits have been high.

Greetings from team Montana!

We have officially come through the first week of boot camp!
This first week has flown by! The kids have ended some of their classes, such as blocklaying, carpentry and drama.

Final Report From Bootcamp!

We are in the final stretch of boot camp!
This is our final day of training and then we are getting ready to pack out for the field. This will be our last report before the field!

Arrived in Montana!

Arrived to Montana Bible College with a warm welcome.

High Mountains, High Spirits

The Montana team is adjusting to the drastic climate and elevation change. As we are coming into the end of our first week, the team is experiencing dry heat with 30% humidity and an elevation of 4,820 feet above sea level . This is a gigantic change from the very high humidity levels experienced, at bootcamp, and the elevation level of 3 feet. Even though this has proven to be a challenge for some of the kids they are pulling through, and showing us that they are truly dedicated workers.

Fourth of July Fun!

It is a chilly day here in Montana! Ít is 63 degrees with a touch of rain. This past holiday weekend has been filled with many activities. Saturday afternoon the team was able to practice for our very first presentation, unfortunately we were unable to perform with the originally planned church. After we finished working Saturday we were able to take a beautiful half mile hike to the Palisades Falls. The pathway up to the waterfall was a paved road mostly uphill with beautiful scenery on every side. When we got to the waterfall the team enjoyed climbing up the rock face to better see the beautiful creation that the Lord made.

The Montana Team takes on week two!

Greetings from Montana!
We have been working hard here at the Montana Bible College base! We have been working on many of the same projects as last week. We have finished one of the dorms, and have started working on painting other dorms. Some of the other team members have also been able to start painting the railings around campus.

Day of Rest, Day of Presentations.

This weekend team Montana was able to do their very first presentation! We were blessed with the opportunity to be able to attend Manhattan Bible Church yesterday. The team was excited and a little nervous to be able to perform for the Jr. & Sr. High group at the church. We spent four hours practicing on Saturday for our hour-long presentation.
