In honor of the Olympics coming up and Canada day as well as Independence day happening this week we at Samaritan’s Purse have decided to get in the spirit of competition. We have organized a two week competition with all kinds of events; from Basketball and Hockey on the helipad, to scrabble, to ping pong to things in a box! This Saturday is our final day of the competition. We have a ton of games planned, a BBQ, fire works and camp fire!
Tonight’s event was soccer and Canada + the World (we have all other internation/non-american players on our team cause the US SP staff out number us 1-3) dominated the americans 5-2!! With Eddie, our logistician from Kenya (explains why he’s so good) getting a hat trick and John, our British Columbian nurse/volunteer coordinator/procurement expert scoring the two other points!
It was a fun night! I was really impressed with the skills we have on this base! And I gotta give a shout out to Nathan, aka muscles- you beat a girl at arm wrestling. You are the man!
