Stand in the Gap for Sergio Lima

On October 2, Sergio Lima severely injured his knee while surfing an epic swell on Oahu's North Shore. The accident happened at the end of the video clip. As the wave closed out, Sergio tried to turn, but his right foot slipped off the board. The wave crest landed on his board and left leg, pulling both down and away. Preliminary reports indicate at least a torn PCL (posterior cruciate ligament), which means surgery and a long rehab.

This husband and father of two young children supports his family with multiple jobs, including surf instructor, youth pastor, and coffee roaster. He is amazing at all three. In addition, Sergio does various woodworking and construction jobs, but his favorite side job is testing prototype surfing fins. He's amazing at those jobs, too!

All these jobs require a fully-functioning Sergio, which won't be the case for at least a month. This is where we would like to help the Lima family. If you know them at all, the Lima's are always helping others out. They are one of those families that make communities better. Much better. 

If you asked them how you could help, the Limas would probably just ask you to pray. Do that for sure, but if you can also give some of your hard-earned cash to support this hard-working man while he can't work, we know that would bless them tremendously!
