“They saw elevators for the first time and were amazed by a room that moved. These are things that we don’t even think about,” said Elisa.

“One child was enthralled by the highway system. He talked about how he could bring that back to Uganda,” said Rob. “He was amazed by the organization of it and now he wants to be an engineer.”

On July 31 the group will return to Uganda for two months before returning to the U.S. in September for a tour that will cover the east coast and Texas.

“It’s a life-changing experience,” said Elisa. “Each day offers something new and I feel like I have the best job in the world.”

“The kids leave such an impact and we’re blessed to be part of it,” said Rob.
