Memorial Day Outreach from WalkingOnWater on Vimeo.

It is so amazing to see how God works in His perfect ways! We had been planning this outreach for a few weeks before we realized that it was going to be on the exact date marking the two year anniversary of the death of Emery Kauanui Jr. who was a local surfer murdered in La Jolla, California. God clearly had a bigger and better plan for this outreach event. A huge crowd showed up at the Carlsbad Lagoon to celebrate the life of Emery Kauanui Jr. The action packed day included a BMX demo, Skateboard demo, Wakeboard demo, five talented bands, celebrity MC Sonny from P.O.D., and a screening of the Beyond The Dream surf movie. There were four local news stations there to cover the event. Emery’s mom Cindy Kauanui and brothers Caleb and Nigel were the guests of honor. Caleb is one of the best graffiti artists in the world and created an amazing mural of his brother Emery and also gave the kids an opportunity to test their artistic talents on their own mini mural. Nigel is a very talented Hip Hop artist and performed two songs in memory of Emery. Along side of Nigel were his very talented break dancers. Miles McPherson from the Rock Church did an incredible job sharing the Gospel with the crowd who had already been very impacted by Emery and his family’s story. Many came forward to receive Christ! We want to thank Miles Ahead, all the local churches, and Brett “Bird” Matson for doing such an incredible job organizing and promoting the outreach.
