We had our last team meeting tonight before departure. We went over the info packet, including what to pack, how to pack, what to bring, what to expect with regard to weather, activities...and of course, a music policy. Ha.
Seriously though, music is such a big deal with students, I decided to come up with some rough guidelines.
One final topic was - whatever you do now affects the team. Don't get enough rest before the trip, the team has to drag you along. Don't spend enough time with God, you hurt the rest of the team. We are now an organism that functions together.
Good meeting overall, the mood is excied yet a bit nervous and apprehensive. Worries include 23 hours of travel, what will the food be like, hoping no one gets sick. The team seems excited about the ministry opportunities we will be involved in, including the culture exchange, planting the garden and the various sports things.
