Africa Trip is ConcludingPosted on July 31st, 2009 No comments
Our team in Africa has faced some challenges this week. Two students contracted malaria, were treated immediately and are both doing well.
One of the team’s goals was to get LOJA’s soccer field in playable condition. This started with Headmaster Mtebe’s visit to The King’s Academy last year. The students decided they were going to raise the money to build this soccer field.
Well, not only did they raise the money, they went over to help them build! It was graded when they arrived, and they got to work preparing the field, building goal posts, etc.
They worked feverishly to complete the goal posts and, as they were completing the cement work, the referees blew the whistle to start the tournament championship game.
The team will board a bus tomorrow and make the 13-16 hour ride from Bulima to Nairobi. They will spend a day and a half in Nairobi, then fly back to the States, arriving on Tuesday.
Please pray for safe travels, health and an ongoing impact made on LOJA through the relationships that have been formed or solidified.
