Our first morning was spent on the water, building “The Dream Team” by working together. We paired up by two, and took out the canoes. We all learned quickly that only one of us could control the canoe. The other person was the power, and only that. We had to communicate with each other so that we could proceed to the opposite side. We all had a blast, enjoying the refreshing water and the vibrant sun. But the day is not over yet… it gets better!
We were all excited to get hooked up and rappel from ALERT’s tower. We did have instructions and demonstrations on how to do it before trying it ourselves. Girsl rappelling—so much fun! We all went up and down too many times to count, laughing and building team work while having fun.
The next morning we drove out to the “Back 40” to learn team building on the rope course—working with each other, trusting each other, because it would never work if we did not. Getting from point A to point B forced us to rely on each other.
Driving back on Saturday night and reflecting on the lessons learned, I realized the important facts of having a dream team, not only with 14 girls at AE, but with believers, family, and my Lord.
