We are on board the S/Y Next Wave at Albert Docks in Liverpool. Right now there are 27 of us on board. YWAM Liverpool is running a School of Evangelism on board. They will be leaving next week and going to Cardiff, Wales for their outreach. They did there lecture phase on board and leave the ship to go on outreach. We come on the ship to do our outreach!
I spent the first two days repairing the jib sail. Eventhough I'm not a sailmaker, I pushed enough needles through my hand (yes, my hand, not my fingers!) I can claim to be a sailmaker. These are not lightwieght sails, they are about an inch thich, so it is not easy pushing a needle through them.
The second day here we hosted a lunch for the Chemin Neuf community. A very unique community bringing reconnciliation in the church in Europe. http://www.chemin-neuf.org.uk/
We will be sailing on Thursday, April 12 for Warrenpoint, Ireland. There is a small town called Rostrevor near Warrenpoint, this is the area where C.S. Lewis got his idea for Narnia. We will be there for a week. We will be going upto Belfast for at least one day and going into the Shankill and Falls communities. Belfast still has a wall that separates the city and these two communities.
After that, we will sail towards the Isle of Mann, then over to the Netherlands.
Continue to pray for us and support us as we reach out to the people of Ireland, who still live a very isolated and seperated life from there own brothers and sisters.
