Derek Rabelo has just completed a very blessed tour of New Zealand. The eleven day tour was organized by Rosemaree Knight and Jeanine Treherne from Australia. The tour covered the area of Auckland-Raglan-Mount Wanganui, and it included visits to churches, youth groups, a TV Interview for Shine TV, and more. Derek was interviewed by Radio Rhema, visited The New Zealand Surf Academy at Raglan Area School, surfed with enthusiasts, Christian Surfers, and other Christians who braved the cold water. He also had the chance to show the Beyond Sight movie three times.

During the tour they made many good friends, and Derek especially loved meeting a blind boy at the event hosted by Christian Surfers at the Mt Manganui Social Club. It was a truly incredible time, and they were blessed with wonderful hospitality along the way.The tour had great program support & hosting from many churches and youth ministries, and Derek was encouraged to return and visit even more places in the future. What a Mighty God we serve.
