In partnership with church planter and pastor, Mark Yocom, Surge soccer has on-going events to encourage the people of Kosovo. While Mark is a chaplain for NATO forces he also is actively involved in the local community, part of which is reaching out to children through the sport of soccer. Surge staff (and friends) visit Kosovo regularly and actively build relationships with boys and girls in the process. The final phrase of our theme verse “defend the rights of the widow” (Is.1:17) was recently fulfilled in that we were able to assist widows (caused by the war) by looking after their children so they could study and work. Who would have thought soccer would help widows?
