Salt Surfers Tamarin Bay Launch
by Andre Holl
We have just started a new Salt Surfers group in Tamarin Bay. This is made up of youth from 9-13 years old. We meet every Saturday morning from 10 to 12.30 where we do exercises, learn to surf and to play water polo. It is in this environment of fun through sport and teamwork that we teach the kids about the incredible character of Jesus that can transform our lives. What is so exciting is that we have four young men, who were part of our first group, who are now working with us as coaches. This we believe will inspire them and even open up work opportunities for their futures.
Some other exciting news is that Bart Labonne, one of the young men who has been mentored through these initiatives has recently started his deck hand course in Cape Town. His dream is to travel and gain experience working on yachts around the world. He had started a surf school and through this opportunity gathered up enough funds to buy his plane ticket and to pay for his course. We are very proud of what he has achieved over the years and the progress he has made in his life. Well done Bart!
