Hi Mrs.Loy its Nick and I would like to say thank you–3 years ago you told my mom about walking on water surf camps and you got me into the camp. Before that I didn’t think too much about surfing or god. Going to the camp with Noah was amazing I learned so much about the lord and I learned I loved surfing. Since the camp I have been surfing almost every day, I have been surfing for god. After I heard about you about a month ago it was really depressing to hear if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be where I am in surfing. Last Saturday I had a surf contest at La Jolla shores and I told my mom I would dedicate the contest for you. In my first heat with 30 seconds remaining I said please lord give me a wave a wave came perfectly to me and I won my heat. Then in the semi finals I said a prayer about how I know that you are stronger than anything I also came first in that heat. I made it all the way to the finals and I couldn’t believe it! In the final I came 4th, 4th place out of 38 kids in the whole contest I was over the moon, it was my best result all year and if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t of realized my love for surfing and God– thank you for all you do – Nick Holdman
