Name: Lexi Crawford (was Johnston when I went on my TMI trip)

Age: 25

Whereabouts: Washington

Trips with Teen Missions: Brazil Boat, I don't remember for sure but I think it was #0196. It was 1996, 1st session of boot camp, team leaders were Papa Jim & Anna, and Matt & Kelly. Our base camp was in Puerto Vhelo and we built a church on the Madeira in a village called Cunia.

Other Missions Trips: El Florido, Mexico with Amore Ministries; Yakima, Union Gospel Mission, with my church.

Other info: I joined this community in hopes of reconnecting with some former team members and talking about old memories. I work as a supervisor at a day program for people with developmental disabilities. I married a wonderful man of God in May of '04. We have no kids yet but have four cats and a spoiled dog. I have no pics from my trip on my computer at the moment but will try to dig some out and scan them.

weird dream i had last week [May. 1st, 2005|11:48 pm]
Got Boots?

So this was definately the most vivid TMI dream i've had in years...

I was going back to TMI but i didnt know it until like 2 days before i left. I figure, hey its my 3rd time...i can put off packing. Soo...i packed like the day i left.
I was under the assumption that i was going on the Honduras Team (which is EBC).

I get to boot camp (i swear i could smell it in my dream), and i'm getting my stuff for registration out of my box, when i realize that i don't have any water shoes. I look down, i'm wearing sandals. I look through my box, (and i distinctly remember each of these things), and realize that not only do i not have watershoes, i also don't have any laundry stuff, any toiletries(like shampoo), i have my makeup because for some reason i have my purse, which also has my wallet in it (IMPORTANT LATER), but i dont have my BOOTS, i have my flip flops im wearing, a pair of docs, and a pair of sneakers ( i have no idea why..). I don't have socks, i really dont have much of anything just a bunch of clothes....AND i have no warm clothes. Which is fine. Because i'm going to honduras after boot camp...right?

So all of a sudden Cherob (my CRAZY assistant leader from last year) comes over. She says, "surprise! you're not on Honduras, you're on Brazil Boat! With Me!" (this is funny because she's actually GOING on brazil boat this summer, she sent me a support packet) oh boy...brazil is cold. i have no clothes. this isn't good...

I'm freaking out. Heather, Lauren and Jaiden are all also on this team. They won't talk to me, so all of a sudden I see Heidi and Peaches! yay! I go hang out with them and Heidi and I start braiding eachother's hair. (all people from my team last year...Heidi and I had cornrows/braids when we were in Africa)

Everyone's busy, so I sneak off. I go across boot camp, (no one notices, they're all busy registering!) and sneak into the TMI office. I go up some stairs, and i find a phone. I have a list of about 30 things that I don't have, find my phone card out of my wallet (dont know why that was there) and call my mom. She gets wicked mad at me for procrastinating packing and also because it'll be wicked expensive to send all this stuff down to BC.

I run off, hoping no one notices that i was using the phone, and go get socks from the BC store. I decide that I could put on my docs, the actually look like boots anyway...all of a sudden I remember that they pull up your pant leg when they check you at registration.

Then I flip out, and wake up.

Anyone else had any crazy TMI dreams? I know it's cuz it's almost summer...oooooh I miss it. I'm absurd...

Hey, I'm new to this site so I just thought I'd introduce myself:

Name: Stephanie Le Blanc

Age: 23

Whereabouts: Windsor, Ontario, Canada

Trips with Teen Missions: 96015 Mexico Film, 2000 March Break Florida

Other Missions Trips: none :(

Other info: I just finished my 3rd year of Developmental Psychology and Philosophy at the University of Windsor. This time of year I always get nostalgic for TMI because it reminds me of packing and all the crazy last minute fundraising (ack!) Unfortunately, since I did TMI so long ago, it was before internet was popular. Only one guy on my team had an email address at the time and no one really knew how to use it. So I have lost touch with pretty much everyone on my Mexico team. It's sad :( I'm still in touch a few people from my March Break team; in fact, my sister has actually been dating one of my teammates for nearly 3 years now. If I could go back and do it again, I would have done TMI every year! Well, I guess that's it for now.
