About the MBS/Musana trip:
We are very excited to announce a few MBSers have been accepted to join Flatirons Community Church on a mission trip to Iganga, Uganda! The team is headed to Musana Children’s HomeOctober 14th – October 24th. They will be helping with various needs of the orphanage, including some Bible teaching, and of course, participating in some physical activity with the kids and staff! Musana was founded by two college-aged girls from Colorado. They found their calling while on a trip to Uganda, and in 2008, began fundraising to open an orphanage. The unique thing about this orphanage is its commitment to sustainability. This organization, by design, supports the community it’s in and prepares the children to live and thrive there, in Iganga.
Our hope is that we will be an asset to the team and Musana with our background in fitness and good times. All related to wodding, of course. The beauty of CrossFit is that it is functional, practical, and universal. We may arguably have the best facility in the world, and we don’t want to keep it to ourselves. We look forward to playing games, teaching air squats, and maybe even jumprope or pull ups! We are also certain that we will be changed even more by them than they will be by us. We are looking forward to what is in store!
