Surfing for Jesus

Today we heard about a wonderful ministry that reaches out to surfer in the Monterey area. Once a month they cook breakfast for surfers and hand out tide guides for 2012. These tide guides tie the gospel into meeting the surfers physical needs.

Here’s what they say about themselves.

“The “Swell” is a non-denominational fellowship of Christian surfers and wave enthusiasts. We gather together on a regular basis to encourage one another to live out our faith in Jesus Christ, both on and off the waves. We try to have a different attitude out on the water ( No bad vibes from us). While others are praying for waves, many of our members make it a practice while surfing to pray for surfers around us. We pray for their safety , for their salvation if they don’t know the Savior and for any situation they want to share with us.”

What a cool find for my son Nathan who loves to surf. Praise Jesus for these folks that use what they love surfing to reach the world for Jesus.
