Update – April 2011

With the help of Christian, Brent and Marcus and two solid weeks of work, the Encounter’s  rig was tuned, her hull painted amidst a hoard of other projects and now she sits pretty in the port of Volos as two more volunteers Christa and Peter cleaned her inside and out in preparation for the arrival of our Spring school students.Launch of the S/Y Encounter

We pray each one of them will truly have an encounter with God that will be life changing and that will launch them into a life of service for His glory sake.

Meanwhile the building project continues, with the final collapse of the stone cottage which was to be renovated.  This came about by the torrential rainfall soon after the excavations which ultimately undermined the house.  So now we start from the beginning.  Probably better this way, although we will miss the charm of a half a century old building, so full of history.  Further we have just received notice that the needed funds (50,000€) to complete the first part of the project will shortly be coming in to our donations account.

We are so often overwhelmed by God’s timely provision.
