POV of a Fellowship Teamer

Author - César Muñoz

I'm sure you can guess from the title, but this week's prompt is "A Day in the Life of a Teamer." Switching up to our regular blogs is pretty exciting if you ask me! It's a nice change of pace for this week. So, without further ado, here is a regular day walking in my shoes.

I would describe myself as a morning person or an "early riser." Most days, I get up between 5 am and 6:30 am. Typically, I am the first person awake in the house, and I will come downstairs and make a beeline straight for the coffee maker, where I will start brewing my first cup of coffee. While this morning jump-start brews, I usually grab whatever books we are currently reading along with my Bible and my journal, and then I will make myself comfortable in our front living space. I'll spend a chunk of my morning studying or doing quiet time, and then I usually read a fictional book until it is time for morning reading.

Morning Reading
Morning reading is what I look forward to the most on a regular day! Morning reading is a time when our team sits around our dinner table and dives into the Bible for usually about an hour. We read the Bible chronologically, and it is the best way to start the day with my team. Each of us takes turns reading, and then we will reflect on each chapter. It's so fun and exciting getting to see what stands out to each of my teammates and seeing how the Spirit guides the conversations! Next on the schedule is some much-needed Selah time.

Selah Time
Selah is a time when we take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to sit and let the Spirit move. I will usually spend this time praying, reflecting on morning reading, or reading scripture I feel in my heart. This is one of very few programmed times where we are asked to spend it apart. It's a time intended to be spent with the Lord, and it is the sweetest time when I embrace it!

After Selah, we will have some program time that often varies. Sometimes, we get to work outside making new paths, building succahs, cutting and burning wood, or maintaining plants around the property. When we don't have property work to do, we will do some bookwork! To help prep us for our upcoming mission trip to Oaxaca, we have been studying the practice of evangelism. After our programming time, we break for lunch until 1:30 or 2:00, and then we spend the rest of our day working on the storyline of the Bible with Arlie, or we'll spend it studying or working with Keith.

As far as the storyline of the Bible, Arlie is currently walking us through the storytelling of the New Testament and what it looks like to share that with others. It has definitely been challenging at times, but it has been such a blessing to be able to reference it and utilize these teachings to talk about the Bible with friends and family. Recently, we were challenged to memorize John 1:1-18, and it was so fun getting to work with my team to get down each word.

That's usually the case as far as our regularly scheduled days go. We are done most days by 4-5 in the afternoon, and then I usually depart from the house to work out or play disc golf at a local park. We are blessed to have weekends off, and I keep mine as busy as possible most weeks, spending time with friends or family.

That's about it as far as a day in the life of a Teamer. No song for this post, but I hope you enjoyed getting a little insight into my day-to-day life! I pray you have a blessed week, and I can't wait to share all about our time in Oaxaca when we get back from our trip.
