SFC Slovenia Grant Report
Grant Report for SFC Slovenia
This past winter JSAW provided SFC Slovenia with a grant to empower their leaders in two different regions. They were able to get ski and snowboard wax kits and go on a preseason retreat to pray for the season and brainstorm different ways to reach out to the snowboard community. Hondo Wynn, the leader at SFC Slovenia just sent us a cool story about how God is moving there in Slovenia:
One of the high school guys who went on the retreat named Klemen came to know Jesus two years ago. Now he is fired up on Jesus and snowboarding. He tries to throw back flips off of everything! Klemen and his buddy Blake hosted “Wax and Snax” hangouts to reach out to their fellow high school shredders. Klemen led one of his classmates to Jesus, went snowboarding with guys as much as he could and just finished the season with the SFC Glacier Spring Shred they hosted in Austria. It has been great to see this Slovene guy be the light of Jesus in the snow riding culture of Slovenia. Below is a video that Klemen made this season.
Hondo also shared another story about an aluminum shovel that he purchased to shape mini parks at their camps and other things throughout the season. He wrote on it that it was a gift for the shredders and left it stashed in the woods so that all the locals could use it to shape the park. The word got around and pictures started popping up on Facebook. Hondo said, “It was a small way that I was able to love the local shred scene and be the light of Jesus in the snow riding culture.”
Be praying for our friends in Slovenia as they continue to share Christ with the riders in their community.
