Animal Kingdom/Disney World w/ the Mayernick's and MacDonald Family ... There
were like 50 people in our 3 families ...
This has been by far the best summer EVER. We went to Africa and won the National tournament. The plane ride to Africa was probably a death ride. It was the worst. When we got to Africa it got better. Meeting Joseph and Daisy was the best moment of the trip. As i got to know Joseph i understood he could't talk well. Meeting Katie's girls was a blast. I made a relationship with every girl .( even patricia).
feeding the Amazima kids was great and humbling and i met a lot of new friends. One of the funny parts is when one of the boys my age at the Saturday worship would look at me, say something in Lugandan to another kid and laugh at me and i didn't even know what they were saying. Africa was the best experience. The nationals was another great experience . After watching the movie "More than A Game" i was bound to win it all. As my dad told me a million times " Just 1 game at a time." When we got to the championship i was determined to win. Just before the game started my dad told us" be calm and play your game'' and that is what we did. After the game we gave the glory to God and we were off to Tennessee.
