The Beginning of the End

The Beginning of the End

The Beginning of the End

Has the last week really come upon us already? Here we are in the last week of our time in Montana! What an adventure it has been! 

This weekend was full of relaxation and team time! This has been the first weekend where we have not gone out on a fun activity. In past weeks we have gone on hikes and tubing, but this week we spent more time playing games and just really getting to know each other. 

The team was able to have a fun night around the newly renovated fire pit. They were able to make hobo pies and roast hot-dogs. Hobo Pies are Ground beef, potatoes and carrots placed in tin foil and cooked on the coals. For dessert we were able to make some good ol’ S’mores, the kids' faces were chocolate and marshmallow covered. Or as Albert put it “I’m saving it for a snack later”. All the kids greatly enjoyed themselves. 

The team has been playing some games. They especially enjoyed Do You Love Your Neighbor? It is a mix between Musical chairs and Never Have I Ever. It's a good outlet for the kids to get some energy out, at the same time getting to know their fellow teammates! 

The team is eagerly finishing up their work projects this week. We are trying to finish painting the dorms that the students attending the Bible School will be living in this fall. They also are finishing the rock beds and painting the parking lines. 

Thank you for all of the letters that you have been sending. The kids are eager to receive their mail every night. Every night the girls are sharing letters and pictures from their families, it is encouraging to see them growing so close. 

 

Weekend Testimonies:

“This weekend was Awesome! We went to a local church and did a presentation with a drama, puppet show, songs and the wordless book for the children's ministry. We had fun and we got to share the gospel!” - Hannah A.

“I was so sad this morning when I realized how little time I have left with TMI. Our team has grown so close together like a huge family! I’m going to miss them so much!” - Emily D.

“Moving Rocks. Painting doors. By the fire making smores” - Tobias W.

“Hi Everyone. This weekend We did dinner and s’mores over the fire and played games as a team. Sunday we did verse review and quizzed. It was fun!” - Ahna M.


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.

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.

Evangelism Work in Montana

We are heading into our final week and a half of being in Montana!

Bison and Elks and Bears - Oh My!
