We are starting to settle into a routine of sorts here at Warm Lake Bible Camp.

We are starting to settle into a routine of sorts here at Warm Lake Bible Camp.


We are starting to settle into a routine of sorts here at Warm Lake Bible Camp.  The mornings are chilly, so we start the day with an hour of drama/puppet/singing practice.   After practice we do our personal devotions in the beautiful setting of the camp.  There is something about reading God's word in nature that connects us more deeply.  Breakfast is at 8:30 and this morning the kids got to do an impromptu song for the campers because the kitchen wasn't quite ready for us.  Today we are also celebrating Sam's 14th birthday and the kitchen is preparing a birthday cake!  After breakfast we start our work day.  The kids are making great progress on the fire mitigation and the camp staff continue to come up to us and let us know how thankful they are.  They are amazed at how hard this group of teenagers are working.
Isaac was able to participate in a flag ceremony for the camp along with one Eagle Scout and three Civil Air Patrol Cadets. The ceremony was in celebration of fourth of July weekend. It was a great opportunity to honor our armed forces and our country alongside the campers. 
Last night, we experienced a beautiful thunderstorm with some light hail right around dinner time. The teens enjoyed how quickly it cooled off the usually warm and dry weather! All of our teens loved listening to the thunder, and it was a neat display of God's majesty in the storm. 
The teens are enjoying the nightly classes and Bible studies that we have begun. During girls and guys devotions, we are learning what it looks like to be a man or woman of God, and what our identity is in Christ. They all have wonderful questions and are soaking in the material! Studying together at night has been a great way for them to bond and get to know each other better as they learn about God's word. 
This weekend, our tentative plan is to get everyone caught up on their memory verses, so we can have a friendly verse quizzing competition on Sunday! We are all ready for some down time after a long week of work, so our plan is to go hiking and enjoy some time at the lake on Saturday. Pictures to follow! Thank you for continuing to lift us up in prayer!
Isaac B. "The cabins are nice and we have mattresses! I am glad to be back in the PNW (Pacific North West), out of the humidity and back to the dry heat. It is fun to do a Bible study that is just with the guys."
Trace H. "TBH I miss bootcamp. The mosquitos miss me, I was the food source for two weeks. Idaho is super pretty, the weather is kind of bipolar. It's super cold in the mornings and hot both at night and during the day."
Nicole C. "Hi mom and dad, I miss you a lot. It isn't humid in Idaho, but still very sunny. It gets very cool in the morning so I'm wearing my jacket. I hope to earn some muscles from all this work. Looking forward to treats when I get home!"
Caitlyn O. "I like Idaho more than Florida because it isn't humid, and it gets cool. It's also easier to work in Idaho. "
Bridget H. "The work in Idaho is fun! I like the weather here a lot better than in Florida. I am enjoying showers, washing machines, good food, no dishes, mattresses, and fans. "
Timothy S. "I'm liking the dry heat and having fun clearing brush. Looking forward to the lake on Saturday."
Sam K. "Hi family! Idaho is pretty cool. In the morning it is 50 degrees. Then real hot. I like it here. Working is fun and hard work. I am enjoying the mission so far. No video games though."
Alayna N. "I love the trees in Idaho. It is fun helping the people at camp. We have been pulling weeds and removing dead tree branches to help prevent fires. My team is nice and I like the classes we are taking."

Idaho

Our team is 21 strong. They got busy memorizing Scripture and helping one another get organized in their tents. We experienced our first rainstorm on Registration night, but everyone has had nice dry tents!! Orientation day went well as people got to know each other better. We ran the OC for the first time that day and learned a lot. Everyone had a lot of fun, and the formation of team unity has begun! Right now, we have 11 girls and 10 boys.

Greetings from the Lord's Boot Camp!

Over the last couple days, there has been a vast improvement in our teamwork! The kids are encouraging one another and working together to improve on the Obstacle Course each day. The kids have been taking block-laying, concrete, digging, and steel tying classes in the morning.

The Idaho team is doing well at boot camp...

This week we will start some new classes. Puppets and Advanced Evangelism are new to us on the schedule along with balloons.

Finishing Strong

Today is our last day of classes! The kids have been doing an amazing job on the obstacle course working together and avoiding disqualifications. Yesterday two of the leaders ran with them and they got 17 people over the wall!

The Idaho team arrived safely there

The Idaho team made it safe and sound last night!

Welcome to Warm Lake Camp

We arrived late Sunday night to Boise and got to the church around midnight. We let them sleep in until 8:00 and had a nice breakfast provided to us from a special lady at the church.

A New Week Has Begun

Greetings from Idaho! It's been a relaxing weekend as we finished up our work week on Friday. The team did a wonderful job and made excellent progress on our brush clearing and wood removal projects on Friday. Even though some of the team wasn't feeling very well, everyone did their best and worked together well to help out those that were moving a little bit slower. By the end of work, everyone was ready for the fun and rest we had planned for the weekend!

Adventure in Idaho

What a week it has been so far! The kids are continuing to work hard on fire mitigation, while also preparing the cabins to be prepped and painted.

One more week at Camp

Wow! It is hard to believe that we have been on the field at Warm Lake Camp for two weeks already. Thursday we had a long work day after our day off of rafting. As we have been sharing during the campers Mission Hour, we are trying to show different aspects of Teen Missions that we use on the field.

Last Few Days at Camp


It is hard to believe that we have been at Warm Lake Bible Camp for almost three weeks now. The camp is looking amazing!

Welcome to Caldwell!

It's been a week full of change here in Idaho!

From the Heights to the Depths

This week, the team was able to experience many unexpected but wonderful things. With plans changing in regards to working with Mission Aviation Fellowship this week, we were able to do a sightseeing day on Tuesday
