Last year (2011) we took a break from challenger. This year we would by God's grace have a challenging, fun and exciting experience in Challenger 2012! Applications are already out and on for potential participants from Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Rep of Benin and United States! I want to enjoy releasing the details bit by bit to whet your adventure appetite! Only the chicken and faint hearted need be afraid, and we dont take them anyway as we give fair warning, Challenger is NOT for the weak in spirit!

There were 5 staff, with the two Americans (Mark Mickelson and Paul Moody from Spokane, Washington) adding their considerable experience and skills to the success of the program. The temperature was low enough that even our friends from the temperate region of the US had to put on their jackets!
|Orienteering and Map reading class handled by Paul Moody|
|Cold enough for the American but obviously much more so for the Nigerian!|

The daily campfire discussions and strong bond of family and friendship built is one to be experienced and not talked about! We also had a buffet night and a night of roasted goat meat!
Church service in the mountains provided us with the best church setting in all the world that week we believe! You need to see the pictures to agree with me!
Experiences of participants will be put here as soon as they are sent in. keep on keeping on! May you have a day of adventure!
Oludare Akinbo, Challenger co-ordinator.
