I was in Nicaragua this week and I recorded this video at the airport on the way back to the US about what things are really like in the country and how you can help. If you wish to donate, please visit our website and scroll down to “Nicaragua Relief Fund”: http://ow.ly/oLo930kpHKb

I watched this because I recognized the actors and it’s a spoof focus of people being self-proclaimed experts on the “holy land” but being from USA and getting large crowds to listen to them after they discovered things no one had before. This semi-sad, but humorous story takes us on the downward spiral of a good-hearted man who wants to lead people to God, but compromises a little here and there until those little twists and turns become avenues and realms he never wanted to go down or visit. It also explores what he ultimately does when he finds himself in those hard situations.
The film does a painfully excellent job of poking fun at backwards fundamental christians who feel like the culture is winning over christianity and the lengths they will go to to fight this movement towards God apathy.
There’s a bit of violence, but overall it’s a pretty family-friendly film.
Jesus, who is eternal God, stepped down and into earth to become man to give us rich, abundant life. He gave up much of his power, glory, and rights to empower others. Why should we not do the same?
Unity 4 Orphans provides a platform, a sphere, a methodology for anyone to experience this type of “dying of the self so that others can live”. When you come on a trip, you give up your riches and comforts of life in America to step into the world of these orphans and vulnerable children, to experience life as they do.

Last weekend I was fortunate to travel down to Baja Mexico with members of the Surf Church at La Jolla Christian Fellowship. We spent an epic weekend surfing and bonding before visiting a local orphanage. We loved on the kids and showed them the film, Walking on Water, which was translated into Spanish. Really cool to share that with them. If you’ve never seen it before, it’s a Christian surf documentary which features several pro surfers.
This was also a vision trip for what could be. I hope to do some trips in the future where we bring people down to surf and then do good at the same time by visiting local orphanages and communities. Like an overnight version of the trips we currently do at Unity 4 Orphans with some surfing mixed in. If this were to get off the ground, would you have an interest in participating?
We invite you to come on a trip with us to City of Angels or one of our other partner orphanages and enter the lives of these vulnerable children. Experience their reality and be moved to act. Through action, you will bring transformation to the lives of these children and be transformed yourself in the process. Join the fight: www.unity4orphans.com
