Hey guys! I’d like to share with you and invite you to participate in something exciting coming up! I have such a heart for surfers around the world that I am going to run a 100 KILOMETER race June 14-18! I’m doing this to raise funds to put on the Americas Conference for all of our Latin American Christian Surfers leaders. Christian Surfers exists so that every surfer in every surfing community would have opportunity to know and follow Jesus. Christian Surfers has ministries in 38 countries worldwide and 15 of them are in Latin America. The conference will train and inspire our volunteer leaders to achieve the Christian Surfers vision in their local communities.
One of the leaders who will be going to the conference is my good friend Nelson from right here in the Dominican Republic. Before Nelson got involved with Christian Surfers, he was struggling greatly with alcohol and drug abuse. Because of his addictions he was kicked out of most of the places he lived and went homeless on many occasions. When he started a relationship with Christ, he was able to overcome his addictions, and everyone in the surf community who knew him is still astonished that Nelson is now celebrating 6 years clean. Nelson currently leads our local bible study for Christian Surfers here at Encuentro Beach, and this will be his first Christian Surfers conference.
Will you help me empower more people like Nelson to have an impact on their community? Will you partner with me in this race in order to see more lives changed like Nelson’s? My challenge to you is to sponsor me for at least $1 dollar per kilometer.
For every $100 dollars that you give before June 10, I will video myself thanking you at the kilometer of your choice.
Thank you videos at kilometer 99 cost $200.
All special requests such as me singing a song or wearing something silly will be considered if the price is right!
All videos will be posted on this Facebook page and I will tag you in the video - https://www.facebook.com/groups/167961090394748/
