We pretty much "Patriotified" the boring Barracks...
Our group was called G.M.G. 
our acronym for Gideon's Mighty Gangstas!
(A whole lot of thought went into 
our name & in case you couldn't tell, we combined
two scriptural references into it as well.  
We're pretty much awesome.) :)
We learned a lot about team building...
and group effort.
Bro. Rutledge pretty much made it possible for
us accomplish this task.  We were swinging a shoe from
a rope before he came, remember? :)
Russ definitely showed his true colors that day...
we all got to see his leadership skills emerge.
Us G.M.G.  G.I.R.L.S before hittin' the rappel tower.
King of the... obstacle.
Jazmyn was our very own Jordin Sparks... LOVE HER!
Adam took a little spill...
Team work... there's the canister before it submarined.
Greg was either stretching out his back or trying to 
retain his cool composure while getting the biggest
ab workout of his life.  That looks like it hurts!
Right before the canister torpedoed...
I believe their thoughts were... 
"Let's just carry on like it didn't happen.
  Now where were we?  How are we gunna' get this across?"
  As Jazmyn looks as cute as ever while the boys sweat it out.
That was some TOUGH STUFF.
We had the sweetest ride on the base...
That big white bus...

with the music turned up so loud that
the speakers were distorting...
It was so hot...
The people who fell in were probably glad
they got wet with how hot it turned out to be that day.

In case you EVER have the desire to reminisce about 
our Group they are:

(To the tune of Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice)

Dum Dum Da Dum Dum
Da Dum Da Da Dum Da Da Dum Dum

Alright stop, collaborate, and listen
Gideon's back with a brand new edition
The Spirit grabs ahold of us tightly
Pray non-stop daily & nightly
will we ever stop? - HECK NO!!!
Turn off the lights, & we'll glow

(skip to chorus)

Gideon's Mighty Gangstas 
Dum Dum Da Da Dum Da Da Dum Dum
Gideon's Mighty Gangstas
Dum Dum Da Da Dum Da Da Dum Dum

Boys:Gideon's Mighty Gangstas
Girls:Too hot, too hot.
Boys:Gideon's Mighty Gangstas
Girls:Too hot, too hot.
(to the tune of Coolio's more "ghetto" version :)

As we walk through Camp Williams
Without a shadow of doubt
the Gospel is true,
'cause we know what it's about

And it's just perfect for youth like us
'cause it gives us direction
& you know we don't cuss (foo')

At 7:30 in the mornin' we're talkin' to Him
Book of Mormon's in our hands
and we've got no taste for sin

(skip to chorus)

We've been spendin' Camp Williams' life
Livin' in Gideon's Gangsta's paradise
We have devotionals every night
'cause we want Celestial Paradise

Aaaaah, Aaaah, Aaaaaaah, Aaaaaaah, Aaaaaaah

Thanks for being
with us!  Keep in touch!
