Well, I have made it to Venture Teams Training Camp, and so far, I have had an awesome experience. I am on a team of 10 people (5 guys & 5 girls). I arrived here at 2pm on Tuesday, September 6, 2005 after picking up a bunch of people from around Calgary and from the airport. We began filling out paper work for our visas, and played some icebreaker games. The night we arrived, we had a band from Germany stay with us because their van broke down while they were on tour, and they gave us a private concert. They were absolutely amazing, and I bought a CD & Shirt.
On Wednesday we began our Guys Only/Ladies Only Retreat. We each went on separate hikes to start things off. The guys hiked Bullar's Pass (West of Canmore) which was about 20km
On Thursday, we played some team building games and began our Bible Studies. Thursday evenings my team went to get our visas notarized. Today we had interviews in the morning, and went through music, puppetry, drama, and chalk art evaluations. This was really intense, because we had to step out of our comfort zone, and try new things. Tonight, we are writing testimonies and finding out our team roles. This is going to be a very intense month, and we are already learning lots. I have the best team I could have ever hoped for, and there is a great team unity throughout the camp and especially with the team.
I am pretty sure that I will be coming back home on September 18th, to do the missions presentation with the Pine Ridge Team. I also have my departure time from the Calgary airport. My Team will be leaving on AC 229 from Calgary on Friday, October 7 @ 10:00pm. You guy are all invited to the airport.
Well thats it for know. Please keep praying for me as my team starts preparing program stuff. Thanks a lot to all of you who are supporting me prayerfully & financially. As of the 6th, my support was at $5700. Praise God. God Bless!!!
