Surf With Him - Christian Surf Camps
The Lord, Donor's, and Volunteers made it happen!
The first annual Surf With Him surf camp in Galveston Texas benefitting the Boys and Girls Harbor (http://www.boysandgirlsharbor.org/) of La Porte, Texas went off with perfection!
The harbor operates comprehensive care for children and families in crisis. For children who are experiencing family hardship, neglect, abandonment or abuse, the Harbor provides a family environment in a home setting. (located in La Port, TX.) With the help of about 40 volunteers from ages 4 to 95, we gave these kids what might be a one-time opportunity to experience the joy of surfing. We took about 25 of their 12 to 18 year olds on a bus down to Galveston where Ohana Surf (http://www.ohanasurfandskate.com/) gave a 2 hour class at 28th and Seawall, near Galveston’s Pleasure Pier.
The kids showed up at 9:30am and had surf Lessons from 10-12. We then served Texas's best BAR-B-Q from Goode Company followed by Dr. Jerry Goff giving the good news of Christ and offering baptisms in the ocean. To everyone's absolute delight, two young men gave their life to the lord and were baptized there in the ocean . From 1-3, the kids built sand castles, played volleyball, swam, surfed, and just enjoyed themselves.
This took a small army to coordinate, donate, and volunteer, so THANK YOU For your donations, volunteering, and your prayers. As is usually the case , everyone involved received 10 times what they donated back in pure joy . God is good!
