Uganda Trip Recap - Cowan Olinger

Jinja, Uganda and Gulu, Uganda are two of the most beautiful places in the world. The people who live in these places are absolutely wonderful people. The landscape is beautiful and the LOVE to LIVE LIFE is special. They are caring and loving people, who are full of energy. The 2 weeks that I was able to spend in Uganda with Managers On A Mission were 2 of the best weeks I have ever had! The group we had was unbelievable. Each team member impacted me positively and challenged me to become better in my faith and in my everyday

life. I look forward to keeping these relationships throughout the rest of my life. The relationships we were able to make with the school teachers and kids were so important to me and still are important to me. Their joy of living out everyday life is truly inspiring. I had a blast being able to do relay races and stations with these kids. Whenever something is not going my way, I think about them and thinking about them brings me a sense of peace and a sense of joy. As I have looked back on this trip, the experiences are something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. The reason I will cherish these moments are because of the people of Uganda and the members of the MOAM team. To anyone thinking about going on a mission trip, I highly suggest it. The things you get to experience are truly life-changing. It will help you grow, and it will show you how God is truly in all parts of the world.
