Greg's July 2012 Newsletter: I'M HOME!!
It’s great to be back in
Alright: I’m not technically back (as I write this) but when you read this I
will be; so I’m predicting that it will be great to be back! I look forward to
seeing as many of you as possible this summer, so please read below to find out
about the sharing events I’ll be hosting, as well as the cool stuff God keeps
doing through Fuego Urbano. California
-Stop by for as long or short as you'd like to visit and catch up
FIRST: WHEN YOU READ THIS I’LL BE HOME IN COSTA
I’ll be in So Cal from July 20th until early/mid September, and would love to see and catch up with as many people as I can during that time. I would also love to share personally about Fuego Urbano with anyone who would like, so if that would be something you’d be interested in then please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set something up. Or if you know of any group, church, organization, or people who would like to know more about Fuego Urbano, then please let me know and we can set something up too. Also: my trip to CA will cost around $1,800-$2,000 (tickets plus extra luggage fees) that is above and beyond our normal monthly expenses; so if you would like to help us cover that expense we would be extremely grateful, and directions on how to give financially can be found below in the last paragraph.

THIRD: The Surfers Bible-Study has been powerful and God is doing amazing things in the lives of the surfers there.
God keeps bringing really key people of the surf culture here in La Serena, and those who are coming are super exited to know and draw deeper in their relationship and commitment to Jesus. We meet on Wed nights and I can never get to sleep afterwards because I’m always too fired up about the study and all the genuine growth and transformation that happens in the lives of those who are coming. Please pray that we keep growing in depth and numbers, and that God would guard the hearts, lives, and faith of those who are coming while I am in the
FOURTH: THE NEW SKATEPARK ON THE BEACH FINALLY OPENED!
This opens up tons of new ministry opportunities, since the surfers and skaters of the downtown & beach-community of La Serena are skating there non-stop. It has been packed since it opened, and means that almost all the surfers and skaters of the downtown & beach communities are now right at our finger-tips. I’ve been skating there lots to strengthen and solidify many of the relationships I already have with those skaters, and to meet as many new people as I can. Here is a recent picture (notice the beach/ocean in the background):
FIFTH: I continue writing for the Christian discipleship website Trochia.org and encourage you to check out the Website (www.trochia.org) & Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/Trochia) to be encouraged and equipped in your faith.
FINALLY: As always there are 3 ways you may give financially to Fuego Urbano. For Automatic Monthly Online Donations you may sign up for amounts of $25, $50, $100, or $200 per month. Just go to the right side of my Blog (http://greghaugh.blogspot.com) where it says ‘Recurring Donation’ and adjust drop-down menu to the amount you’d like to give each month; then click ‘Subscribe’ and it will take you through the process. One-Time Online Donations are available as well: click the ‘Donate’ button on my Blog just below where it says ‘1-Time Donation’ and it will take you through the process.
