Aerial GolfN Kibera

Flying into Nairobi, the tale of two cities is stark. The adventurous #roadtripper can take in a relaxing morning round of charity golf at one of the nicest courses in all of Africa. And then in the afternoon, hop over just a couple of blocks to Kibera for some much available service work.

Certainly, the #roadtripN course is a challenging one that often leaves us spinning like a bad slice.

As our team made the turn giggling with delight over posting a competitive score of -5 under, one couldn’t help but feel a little uplifted knowing we were making a difference. Frivolous consumption of pampered luxury for a good cause really swells the heart.

Unfortunately, we came up just short of winning the tournament. Sadly, we bogeyed the last two holes in twisted fashion and ended up missing out on the grand prize. It hurt a little to lose especially given the purse money would have paid for the expenses of the entire trip.

After the lunch banquet, we were shuttled over to the mission field for a look-in. The tour was quite eye-opening as one could definitely see that we’d done good by supporting the tourney with our play.

Out here on the #roadtrip, it can be enlightening at times to see how we often miss the putt and lose sight of the important things. Onwards….
