First Full Day at Sea
Sat Sep 19 2020
We completed our first full day at sea, and it was a good day. The weather has been absolutely gorgeous. We stopped for a short swim call about 75 nm off the coast. Then we tested putting our small boat into the water and recovering it. We learned a few lessons but overall it went well. The boat is running like it should. We figured out a few things with the autopilot but what an improvement it has made. Lord willing, we should get to Stock Island tomorrow morning.
A ministry on the island nation wrote the following report.
"Hi everyone, I am so happy to announce to you that Pastor has started the process to get authorization for the shipment. Very soon, we should receive the official paper to make it possible. Keep praying so our first shipment experience can go smoothly.... Josue"
WINDOWS OF HEAVEN TEAM REPORT
Windows of Heaven provided a building team for 9/13 - 9/18. Retired pastor, Guy Altizer, is the director of Windows of Heaven and is affiliated with Calvary Baptist Church in Simpsonville South Carolina. Read the first report from the team.
"Bro Jan, we made it and have helped two people today.
Margaret Vincent - We took her tree down and that was all we were able to do. She went to the hospital I guess last night or this morning with dehydration. We were not able to do anything else with her place.
Stephanie Smith - They had some serious widow maker trees that we spent the rest of the day on. We will be there for about a half a day still tomorrow, and then Lord willing we will be able to go meet Pastor Avera from Calvary and touch base with him tomorrow.
We met Pastor Harrel with Grace Baptist. They are waiting on insurance adjusters so can’t do much on their church.
This place is just devastated. It’s so easy for these people to be so discouraged It’s just like “ where do we start “ it’s so bad. Just an update for now. Mark Goldfuss"
Mark Goldfuss works with Windows of Heaven as their lead planner of construction. We need more teams!
