The DR Surf Missions team has returned from a great trip!
Throughout the week, the team partnered with the local CS crew and Ninos de la Luz. Ninos de la Luz is a local boys home which aims to take boys off the streets and place them in a family environment where they live, learn and grow together. The team worked on several projects from cementing, digging a ditch to bury water and electrical lines, and even putting in some shiplap walls in one of the classrooms.
The next few days were spent serving at the 8th Annual Christian Surfers Cup held at Playa Encuentro, along with new sponsor Quiksilver. The team served as judges and tabulators for the contest which saw close to 80 competitors from various parts of the country, and got to share the stoke through the whole contest and the awards ceremony! The Lord provided surf for the contest after quite a bit of stress over a windy forecast. It’s incredible to see what a quick bond surfing can provide in a completely different culture.
During down time at the house between serving or catching a surf, the team took turns leading in a bible study around the dinner table together. Make sure you join us next year when we head back down to the DR!
