Lending our hands and feet to Whangarei

SURGEWe pulled off a great Surge weekend and just got home for some much needed rest. We worked on about 14 or 15 projects all around Whangarei and were able to finish each and everyone of them. All of the teams were extremely happy and felt great about the work they were able to complete. The organizations and individuals we worked for were blown away to see the young people (as well as the not so young people) working with such diligence and care. Thanks for all of the support and prayers. We are going to be around the office and home today trying to get ready for our week long camp with 40 middle school aged kids. With only a day to "rest", we have our hands full to get ready to go on the road. We are extremely excited about camp and ask that you continue to pray for us. Thank you guys!!
