Well it's officially less than two weeks before we leave! We went on our Czech team bonding trip and after hoping to go to Mexico, we realized there were some difficulties at the border and thus decided Palm Desert was a better option. I was so thankful for John's family because they opened up their three bedroom condo to us! I also got excited to start actually filming our team. I got a lot of great b-roll of our team being goofy and hilarious together. We truly did bond over World Cup Soccer, stuffed peppers (a Czech food), making breakfast, going out for ice cream in 100 degree heat, and the time we spent getting to know one another better. I'm sure we'll have plenty of that in the CZ as well, but this was a great start to it. There's nothing like taking 13 people and putting them into a house together for a weekend. It felt like Real World but without the drama. So fun. Pictures to come. I mostly took video. If you are praying for us, please pray that we can get all of the equipment we need before we go and that it can all be packed safely! Also, our commissioning from Christian Assembly and Fusion is Sunday night at 6PM if you want to come! Thanks for your support!!!
