Sometimes opportunities that seem to fun to be true show up, and this happened to 3 our co-workers early January. Mann, Jenodin & Matt got the chance to go on a 24 hour Jakarta mission where football and the trophy for the 2014 year world cup was the center of attention. They had no idea what would happen before they went and they were excited to say the least.

It ended up being a hectic but very exciting adventure with many experiences that was a bit different than life at home in Gerupuk, but perhaps the very best part of it all was to come back home and tell their friends and family about the insanely rich people they had been eating with, the trophy of gold and the crazy traffic jams and tall buildings in the capital.
