E-Team Leaders to France!

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

On Tuesday, June 4th Julie, Kassidy, Klaire, and myself drove to the FWBBC campus to begin our team leader training for E-Team. We are so excited to be leading E-Team France! For those of you who have never heard of E-Team, here is a basic description from FWB International Missions site:

E-TEAM is a life-changing, short-term summer missions experience for students who have just completed grades 10, 11, or 12. The program provides a week of intensive training and two weeks of hands-on cross-cultural experience where students learn from and serve with Free Will Baptist missionaries. The experience wraps up with a time of debriefing and closing ceremonies.
Groups consist of seven to nine students led by an adult couple. Destinations have included Japan, France, St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Chicago, Mexico, Spain, Uruguay, Panama, Brazil, and Cuba.

We will train with other leaders for a few days then our teens will arrive on Thursday, June 6th. Then, on Wednesday, June 13 we will fly to Paris to meet up with our host missionaries. Julie and I are so excited about this opportunity! We have wanted to be a part of this amazing ministry for over 15 years but just couldn’t work into our crazy busy schedules. Please pray for us as we lead. Also, pray for our daughters – Karlee will be on a missions trip in Florida with Campus Crusade, Kassidy will attend two church camps and Klaire will get to hang out in Illinois with her grandparents.
