Thank you for you wonderful response to our appeal for Ethiopia. We still need medical people, but so many have written about going to evangelize and heal. It overwhelms our hearts.
The 2016 boot camp was a great success at the Wilds in Brevard, NC.
This is a picture of the helicopter safety training with Scott Fowler of Shadow Hawk in Greenville, SC. He gave a marvelous training program for the youth. Each member of the group received a certificate of training for their 2 and ½ hour training session.
Berean Baptist Church in Florence, SC, Pastor Don Kirkham, sent 17 of their people to attend the rigorous and developmental training. The impact spiritually was so strong and sweet. Young people surrendered to “spend and be spent” for Christ. Some are already surrendering to medical teams for the near future.
The group lived in out-areas of the Wilds woods in tents and ate over an open fire for five days. They learned to respect the tenacity of people around the world who live in undeveloped conditions.
Their day began at 6 AM and did not finish until 9:30 to 10:00 pm. The schedule did not allow for any free moment from training and development. The professionals who train them work relentlessly to help them see the United States is a “bubble world,” and they must become more aware of personal dependence on God for physical endurance, accommodations, food, and purpose.
The emphasis is that we endure hardship like a good soldier, so we can reach the world with the gospel. They are trained in Red Cross First Aid and CPR. They also receive clinic, dental, and optometry training from our professionals.
I hope that you will pray about attending our next boot camp in Greenville, SC, June 26, 2017. It will be our first boot camp on ORH’s own property. It could become the highlight of your developing Christian life. Please contact our email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know that you would like information. We can send references on request.
