Surplus Military Tents
Ds. P. of Duijvenboden is by August 12 in training at the Royal surplus military tents Academy at Breda and then armed forces minister to be at the Royal surplus military tents School in Weert. Previously he was a professional soldier in the Royal Army. For six weeks every Friday he reported on his experiences. "Release Period". This name stands for a peaceful start of my busy (re) introduction to the military. I am part of the specialist squad filled with doctors, pilots, ministers, therapists, lawyers, journalists, social workers, engineers and even a geographer. Overall, this diverse group one thing in common: they have no experience in the military. Leading the pack at this early Monday morning makes us a first gun in hand. Then we have a tremendous load of material, including tents, stoves, materials, lighting, fire extinguishers, camp beds, tables, chairs, even a projector and other such stuff. Jealously conceals the line what we do and where we go. While we are busy speculating about the destination, we are whisked away to an unknown place. It appears to be the airbase Woensdrecht. Now the "introductory period" really. In a nutshell, this period many sports (every morning at 06. 00 hours we run along a track, we get a sports test, do the obstacle course), exercise, classes on chemical warfare, field service, map reading, leadership training, weapon classes, hygiene field and much more. We make a day of eighteen hours with night still waiting to be walked. One advantage, the (excess) pounds fly off. The group process is especially to experience. A group of people in this busy schedule together and learn to know each other at a breakneck pace. You must indeed all do as a group or in pairs. The moments when we tackled quite work brotherly. Tile sweating in a roadside lie while fervently hoping that you can lie a little, creates a bond. Wonderful to see that soon create room for everyone to talk about what you're moving. So I could during a short ride in the back of a truck already talking to someone about my Savior. I light is a topic for this article. When we arrived it became material for a bow tent put aside. Several ex-servicemen (of whom suspected they might set up a tent) were removed from the group and renamed to observer. Now came the rest of the group within 45 minutes, without a manual, figuring out how the tent would be set up. Soon you will find that such a group into small groups and everyone is his or her view on the material and setting up displays. She did not bad. However, it was clear that a guide would have made that the tent had stood fast and well. What we should be grateful that the question of how we must be saved not left to our own understanding, like building the tent. Thankful that we do not have to invent themselves. No, our guide was written and completely reliable. Anyone who follows this Guide will arrive at Him who is preparing a house, not consisting of canvas, leaking and moving with the wind, but an eternal home in heaven, not made with hands (2 Corinthians 5:1). A house built on rock solid foundation of His suffering and death. It is my prayer I will speak with many soldiers about this builder. . . .
