Your kids have been at boot camp for over a week now and

Your kids have been at boot camp for over a week now and it's flown by. We started off last week with getting settled in and Boot Camp Orientation. The kids were excited to officially start boot camp. The team has settled in well with each other. There is the expected tiredness and sore feet but they keep moving! Rise and shine is at 5:30 every morning and by now they are out of their tent and ready to go within 8 minutes. By 6:06 we are lined up to run the Obstacle Course (OC), the kids generally love the OC. All the team members have conquered the slough and the Wall. Remember to ask them about these two obstacles. After the OC we eat breakfast then have our daily 30 min devotional. The kids have classes all morning and before you know it, we head to lunch. More classes then laundry and/or bath at the lake. The kids have been able to enjoy the pool at least 3 times. We have dinner around 5:20 and then the rally is at 7:00. I hope you all have tuned in to see them at the daily rally. We are all very excited that boot camp is almost over and we will head to Honduras.

I asked your kids "what is your favorite part of Boot Camp? Here are their responses:

Alyssa "All of the staff and leaders are really nice."
Ellie: " I love the people and my team (including the leaders)!"
Sarah: "I have enjoyed making friends."
Cara: "I like meeting all the new people."
Gavin: "My favorite part is meeting new people and making friends."
Rivers: "I really like making new friends and trying new things."
Justice: " My favorite part is the classes that let us move around" (Carpentry, Digging, Concrete)
Sebastian: " I liked the milkshakes and pizza."
Hosea: "I liked the milkshakes and pizza too."
Jae: "I really like the physical classes."
Isaiah and John: "I like the obstacle course" ( they both said the same thing, Isaiah especially likes the slough).
Luke: "My favorite part is the food."
Mason: "I like the Sunday service at the lake"
Hakim: "I liked adjusting the first few days, I like carpentry, they trusted me with a saw, and the food is really good.

We are enjoying our time with your sweet children. We are thankful that you are trusting the Lord and you've sent your kids here with us. The next few days will be busy preparing for leaving. Please continue to pray for them and specifically for spiritual growth.

We will write from Honduras at least once a week.

Thanks,
Tricia J. - Honduras PT female leader.

The Honduras Preteen team has arrived safely.

The Honduras Preteen team has arrived safely in Honduras with all their luggage. They were met by our staff and are heading to the base.

Greetings! The kids are starting work today.

Greetings! The kids are starting work today, they will be moving dirt and rocks and mixing cement. The weather is mild with heat in the middle of the day, it rained on our bus ride from the airport to the base and then again last night. It's nice out now with grey skies.

We had a team Bible study last night and the kids were engaged in Mr. DanielĀ“s teaching and sharing. We have presentations lined up for Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

The kids have enjoyed exploring the base, they woke up yesterday and did laundry. They all enjoyed it and a few said it was actually fun. There is an area for laundry that includes washboards.

Everyone is healthy.

Ola from a hard working Honduras Preteen Team!

The team has been going strong straight into their first work week. They've been pouring concrete each and everyday for the road that leads up to the base and are gaining major muscles while they do it! Hosea Blair said in today's work session, "we're gonna be jacked by the end of this summer". Folks, he's not wrong. The kids have been hauling wheelbarrows of sand, stone, gravel, and concrete up and down the inclined road in a very impressive manner. Their heart for the work is contagious and they're growing each and every day in their character as they go on. As leaders, we've seen God really unify this team in ways that only He can. They step up for each other when they see a friend in need and it's awesome to see.
