More on TMI

Each year, Teen Missions sends hundreds (sometimes close to 1,000) of teenagers around the world to serve God for the summer. They all start at the Lord's Boot Camp in Merritt Island, Florida with two weeks of intensive training, team-building, and instruction. But while all that's going on, they still have to eat. Can you imagine feeding that many hungry teenagers three meals a day for two weeks? Here's Elijah's team waiting in the serving line (he's on the far right almost behind the pole):

And here are some of the thousands of tacos they will eat for dinner:

They build the taco-propper-uppers with 2x4s and drape cloth over it all. Pretty ingenious, huh?

Boot camp was finished last night, and today is packout. That's when they pack and weigh their duffles and carry-ons, pack their food and tools, and begin taking down some of boot camp. Sunday evening is their commissioning service, and Monday they fly out of Miami through London and into Geneva. Please pray for their safety.

Be thankful ~
