Week 4: Surfing

At the beginning of the week, students had a couple days to get some homework done before we headed to Tofino for our big surf adventure.

We loaded up the vans bright and early Thursday morning and headed towards Tofino, but we could not travel all that way without making a couple stops.

Our first stop was at a place called Cathedral Grove, a place where some of the largest trees on Vancouver Island live. We spent some time exploring the area in awe of some of the largest trees most of our students have ever seen.

Our next stop was along the highway to Tofino at a place called Walleys Creek, beautiful rocks and waterfalls.

Next stop Tofino.

When we arrived in Tofino we spent some time exploring the town and checking out one of the beaches to get a taste of the waves we would soon be surfing.

We headed to the church that we would be staying at for the next few nights.

The next day we woke up bright and early and headed to a beach to have a few moments of silent reflection before we headed to grab our surfboards and wetsuits.

We arrived at the beach we would be surfing at and met our surf guides who would cover a quick lesson for first-time surfers along with covering safety in the water.

Now we were surfing!

We surfed for the whole afternoon before we headed back to the church for supper, where we hung out for the evening, played games, and watched a surfing movie that got us primed for the following day of surfing.

Once again we got up bright and early Saturday morning to clean the church that we had been staying in the past couple days to get out and get a few hours of surfing in before lunch.

After a few more hours of surfing, we returned our rentals and grabbed lunch at the iconic Tofino taco truck called Tacofino before we had to load up into the vans and make our way back home.

Please continue to pray for:

- Our students to continue to connect with each other forming strong relationships that become open and honest with each other.

- That our Students would continue to press into what God has for them in the coming weeks.

- That our theme "The Way of Jesus" would continue to sink deep into our student's hearts.
