The second to last day of the camp was a sports day.

Tug of war.

Final day Q&A session.

Campers and their parents.

The camp ended with a barbecue for parents and campers.

15 year-old Veer Amritpal Singh, a native Kenyan. He is such a lovely Gursikh. Veer jee share with me that when he was 7 years old a miracle happened to him at Kericho Gurdwara Sahib. As a young child he never had any teeth. One morning at Amrit-vela he did an Ardaas in front of Sri Guru Granth Sahib jee asking for teeth as the other children used to laugh and mock him. With Guru Sahib's Kirpaa his body froze like a roch as he lay on the floor in front of Guru jee. Knowing something mystical was happening the Giani Jee asked the few people sitting in the Darbaar Sahib to leave and closed the doors. Only Veer jee and Guru Jee were left in the Darbaar Sahib. After an hour or so he got up from the ground. When the Sangat and Giani Jee entered the Darbaar Sahib again they discovered that Sri Guru Granth Sahib jee had performed a miracle by blessing Veer Amritpal Singh with a full set of beautiful teeth! Waheguru.

A "Waheguru" truck we saw on the road journey. There were quite a few trucks we came across that had Khandas and "Waheguru" written on them.

Makindu Gurdwara Sahib. The Gurdwara Sahib marks the place where a black Kenyan native man had Darshan (blessed vision) of Guru Gobind Singh jee Maharaaj.

Dhan Hai Guru, Dhan Hai Teree Sikhee.
