Well, we have finally arrived in Harrisburg and we are beginning to learn our way around the city. We have a "room" that includes a small living area, a VERY small bathroom, and a bedroom; but it is starting to feel like home! At this point there are only about 15 of us at the training center, about 6 staff members and the rest of us are team leaders for missions trips going all over the world. The rest of our team members arrive this Sunday (September 14th).
Most of our sessions thus far have centered around team leadership training and exploring characteristics of a good leader. They have been very informative for both of us. Most of our time is spent in or at the training facility, which is fenced in and locked up at night. However, we have not had any "disturbances" thus far and we are starting to feel comfortable in this new setting. On Wednesday, a few of us took a run around the city. We ran down to the Susquehanna River and then to the Capitol building. The streets of Harrisburg are a little different than the streets of Mont Alto!
Yesterday, seven of us jumped in a minivan and ventured out to find Wal-Mart. It was nice to leave the facility for a while. We got some snackfood, laundry detergent and flower pots to make our room feel a little more "homey". Needless to say we are having a blast and we'll keep you posted on future adventures as they come!
