Tales from Obubra-Day 6

PIN

Today happened in slow motion for me. I practically did everything two times slower than normal. I’m currently on a strong antibiotic and it just made me really weak so I wasn’t able to do much.

The highlight of my day however was this morning. Apparently, news of people’s beds being soaked in water and documents destroyed got round to the overall camp commandant and the issue was addressed this morning.

The officials who wet our beds were sent out of the camp at first light today.

Brethren, don’t you agree I serve a living God?

After the devotion, we headed to our morning drills.

Henceforth, I would like to be addressed as “Janet Bond.”

I swung from ropes, went under barbed wires, climb, crossed and jumped over various obstacles.

It has become so much clearer that they lie in all those action movies. The only question I have is why did they have to make it look so easy??

Nevertheless, it felt so good and for a moment there I felt like I could conquer the world.

I learnt two great lessons today though.

1. Do that thing that absolutely terrifies you. Never let fear take control over your being or mind.

2. Having a great support team around you is the best gift like would give you.

There are times we get knocked down, we doubt ourselves, we question our choices, decisions and even our success stories. It is at this point we need those who will hold our hands and cheer us back into the game.

Goodnight

Love,

TFW
