“We are hunkered down for the time being trying to be wise with our health. Finding the balance of staying safe and helping others can be a challenge at times like this. I’m using the time to prepare lessons in Spanish for my next Peru trip that is scheduled for the end of May but that may have to be postponed depending on the two countries involved in transportation options. We pray for the whole situation that God will use this for His glory and then many will come to know Him as Savior.”

Our Match against Baja California Select (age 58+) is set for May 16th at 1:00 PM in Tecate. Party to follow. This is the 25th year that Surge Soccer has been affiliated and raising money for the San Juan Bosco Orphanage in Tecate. Many of you have joined us before and we look forward to a great time again this year.
We love seeing “SURGE” show up. Al is currently in Peru teaching and was able to get a new stove for the school. Isn’t it great that it is “SURGE” brand!
“He was a top player for our Cascade Surge PDL team, and now we welcome Josh back as our newest Global Ambassador,” says Surge founder Dave Irby.
We are excited to have Josh back, as he uses his coaching experience with us, Warner Pacific University and the Eastside Timbers. Josh will support our current projects – but with his main emphasis on new project development. Read More
At the request of the Shipibo people, we got involved with this ministry of teaching. From the beginning, the plan was to start up a school that meets for one week of intensive Bible teaching each quarter of the year for four years. While this is minimal time for a school it is reasonable for the context and resources available to the people.
So I’m sitting on a boat in the river port of Pucallpa waiting for departure on my 6-hour trip upriver to the town and pastor training school in Junin Pablo. It is a cool jungle morning and I’m sweating. You might think it’s a serene quiet morning in reference to this jungle river location but the quiet is shattered with all sorts of loading activity and raucous music (if you can call it that) blaring over the sound system. I try to tame this with headphones and my own music but the result may be going deaf early.
