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

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

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. 
 Ever since Boot Camp started our kids have begged to go fishing at the lake. Saturday during freetime they enjoyed going fishing & relaxing. Most everyone caught at least one fish if not more! For dinner we surprised the team with Chick-fil-a; and they enjoyed it! Sunday we celebrated the 4th of July! For church we watched a live stream from First Baptist Church of Merritt Island. We enjoyed hamburgers & hotdogs and watermelon & Corn on the cob. We also did memory verse quizzing and played games.
Here are 3 testimonies from the kids:
Ava W. --  Lets just say this trip did not end up like we all expected. We signed up for Malawi, then got changed to Kenya, then to Zambia and then ended up staying in Florida. We were all not expecting these changes, but we know its God's will. We are all excited to see what God has in store for each of us. I have enjoyed morning devotions, and I like the work we are doing.
Honor -- While we may not be in Africa, our time in Florida has been fun and exciting. We are working hard and learning a lot. I've enjoyed learning to work with my team. I'm glad God put me here this summer and I'm excited to continue watching Him work. 
Taryn -- News Flash: We are not in Africa! But, just because we aren't where we planned to be, doesn't mean we aren't where God has planned us to be. The amount of changes that have occurred have really helped me grow in my faith that God has a plan, and that God's will is always greater than our own. It has also helped me to be more flexible and learn to leave it in God's hands. Our team can still make an impact where we are. I wouldn't trade my team for the world. I love them all so much, and can't wait to see how we grow in our relationship with God and each other as the summer goes on. Also, thank you, mom and dad, for being so supportive and flexible with the trip changes. Love you and miss you! 

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.

“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!

"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.
