Josh Westermann, our newest Surge Global Ambassador, is heading to Haiti April 4-10 with a new partner – Project Living Hope. In the morning, Josh will teach soccer coaches – and in the afternoons the coaches will “coach” the kids. An estimated 50 coaches and up to 1,000 kids will participate. GOAL – train coaches to use Biblical values in their coaching and to share the Gospel with the kids and community.
