             August 10th - August 19th 
                                “ Back to Life back to reality”
I  pray everyone makes it a point to be at the Summit to re hydrate themselves, there are so many people  that are  very  tired from living in life draining environments.
Over the years, we have watched so many people come to Yumwija just to realize they need time just to get  replenished
