As many of you are already aware, in less than two weeks I will be departing on a trip through Central America as part of my new role with Christian Surfers International. I will be visiting 6 countries in 6 weeks and will need all the prayer and support I can get during my travels. I will be posting blogs every week about the different missions I visit here on my website. So please subscribe so you don't miss anything! I've attached my tentative itinerary here below -
