My STEP Experience:

hello-there

Hey, guys! I’ve been talking to you about STEP (Skills Training for Emergency Preparedness) and telling you I would get some pictures to you! Here they are, and I have some funny stories, too! πŸ˜€

About STEP:

It’s a three-week camp in Big Sandy, TX. You get to learn all sorts of practical skills while bettering your relationship with God. Some things were hard to get used to, like their dress code (khakis, which were hot, haha). For all meals we wore skirts. And let’s just say I have never worn a skirt that many times in three weeks. πŸ˜‚ They have lectures/group devotions, too. We learned river crossing, rappelling, home maintenance (electrical/plumbing). We also did physical training every morning after personal devotions; which were at 5:30 every morning. We learned Philippians verses daily and if we finished the three weeks we got a shirt. And I did week four as well, (it used to be a four week camp) and I got a STEP mug. πŸ˜€ So that’s cool, I use it a lot. πŸ˜› It was a hard, but awesome, camp. Now for some photos!

Fun Stories:

Lights out was at 9:15 so every night, almost, we would all scramble (at least most of us) after a lecture and get in our rooms by 9:00 then have all lights out at 9:15. One night a roommate was eating at 9:14…she had sixty seconds and it was cereal! It was crazy. She ran to throw the bowl away and then darted back into the room with 10 seconds to spare. It was a ninja style. Some of my roommates were really scared of bugs so I was the Designated Bug Killer, a title I wore proudly. πŸ˜› One time I chased a roommate around with a dead cricket in my hand, it was so funny. She was running up and down the halls and I was just chasing her. Then I went to her friend, and that got even better. They would scream when they saw one…every time. They never got used to it, haha. πŸ˜€

My team and I made this, it’s an (awesome) flag pole. We even got the pole where it could more up and down.

At the Banquet/Graduation:

I got to take pictures with my friends and introduce my Mother and grandmother, who came, to lots of people! And after we sang the two songs we were working on and said our verses which we memorized, five of us shared testimonies. I was one of them. Girls, I was so nervous. But I made people laugh and my Mom cry! (Good sign?) πŸ˜‚πŸ‘Œ

My Team:

I wasn’t able to get pictures with all of them. 😦 But here are some!
