Queensland CS leader Jordan Merry took four 16 year olds on a surf trip combined with a visit to Compassion ministries in the Philippines. "We saw 8-10 people in a family, living in a little shack," Jordan said. "It felt hopeless, but they were happy and appreciated what they had. It really lifted our spirits to see them happy." Jordan said the home visits had had a life-changing impact on the young surfers. "The boys learnt to really appreciate what they have," he said. A great example of a holiday with purpose.
