    This summer I had an amazing opportunity to travel to Koboko, Uganda for five weeks on a mission trip with Teen Missions International. The team I traveled with played soccer with orphans, did many work projects to improve the soon to be Bible Missionary and Work Training Center, and we shared the love of Jesus with the people there.

    Before I could embark on this new adventure, I had to go to Boot Camp, which was held in the swamps of Florida. In Florida I joined my other 18 team members and four leaders and trained for two weeks. When I say training, I mean staying in tents that get soaking wet, waking up at 5:30 am and being ready by 5:35, our bathing and laundry all done out of a bucket, no running water, no electronics, getting eaten alive by bugs and running in hiking boots practically everywhere you go. It was hard!

    Boot Camp was one of the biggest challenges, but it taught us to work together as a team, live primitively and most importantly prepare us for the mission field. From Florida twelve separate teams filled with teenagers from different states, with different personalities, backgrounds and talents left boot camp after they endured and completed it to do the one thing they all had in common, to dare to share the good news of Jesus’ love around the world. After boot camp our team spent two days flying to reach Uganda.

    Our destination in Uganda was 11 hours ahead so we rested at a Bible school in Jinja for a few days. We then traveled in a truck for a bumpy 14 hours to reach Koboko. During our travels we passed many people walking on the road and their faces would light up so bright when we would wave to them because someone noticed them.

    In Koboko we stayed at a base that serves the people of Uganda and is working to become a Bible school. While in Uganda we stayed in tents, all our cooking was done over a fire, we used squatty potties (a hole in the ground) to go to the bathroom, and did all our bathing and laundry out of a bucket. At the base there was a well that people would walk miles to just to get their water. It was really amazing to see women and children walk and carry water that far so they could serve others.

    While there have been some rumors that the Siskiyou Golden Fair is, or may be, canceled, that is not the case. A text to fair CEO Cliff Munson asking if there was any truth to the rumors, brought this reply.

    “None whatsoever.”

    Everything is on track to start as planned, according to Munson.

    “The 2014 Siskiyou Golden Fair has the carnival setting up and the barns are decorated for ‘The Spirit of Siskiyou.’ Fine Arts and Home Arts competitive exhibits have been judged and the displays are set for our opening on
