iACT22: Back with Adam

Reuniting with Adam from i-ACT on Vimeo.

I don’t have to wake up until 7am, but I open my eyes at 4, and I can’t go back to sleep.  Sure, there’s a crazy rooster yelling his lungs out, but that’s not it.  I’m excited that today I finally make it to refugee camp Goz Amer.

We are now a short thirty minute drive away, but it took us two weeks to get here from the time we left Los Angeles. I’m happy that we’ll get to do the work we’re here to do: launch the first Little Ripples (LR) Ponds and the third Darfur United Soccer Academy. But I can’t go back to sleep because I’m so much looking forward to seeing my good friends in the camp: Oumda, the LR teachers, Soulieman, and Yaya. I’m also especially excited to see Adam, who came from his village in Darfur to see me.
