With a final performance 30,000 feet over South Africa, the Young Ambassadors concluded their tour of southern Africa. Over the course of 27 days, they traveled through three countries, giving performances, workshops, and firesides; visiting schools, orphanages, and nursing homes; and even finding time to see the local sights.

For those who couldn’t be there to experience it, the tour was well documented with YouTube videos. Highlights include Tim Cooper’s tour guide work in the BYU Young Ambassadors visit to Kruger National Park in South Africa and the group’s impromptu performance on the airplane home.

For many of the group, the highlight of the tour was the firesides.

Young Ambassador Eric Sackett, “I would almost guarantee that everyone of [the group] would say that the fireside is the best part of being a Young Ambassador, because we get to testify of Jesus Christ, and he is who it’s all about. That’s why we do the work we do. That’s why we’re here in South Africa.”

Interested readers may watch more on the Young Ambassadors’ blog, view the tour photo album, and even download a free copy of the Young Ambassadors’ original song, “It’s Just Life.”

Still not enough? The Ambassadors’ next tour dates will be closer to home, including performances in Wyoming, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Washington and Oregon.
