First of all, we would like to apologize for not up-dating this blog for quite some time. We have been busy with boat building and teaching and just learning how to live in this amazing place!
We have the most beautiful sunrises in Bluefields...it's a great way to start the day! For the past several weeks, it seems like everday something amazing happens.
We have had to stop work again on Caribbean Grace because of lack of funds, but the Lord hasn't stopped working in amazing ways. We've made much progress in formulating the purpose and mission of the project.

Together with the leadership of our local church, Verbo, we have seen the importance of using local people for ministering to the communities up the rivers. We are very excited about the possibilities... getting medical personnel, young people, church workers reaching out to their own.
|Santiago and Oscar, the builders|
Over the past year, these men have been invaluable. Dan has had many lively discussions with them on the specific design specifications of this boat and the ways to make the changes that will make her more useful.

|The 20' dory Dan purchased from Marvin to rebuild as a tender for "Caribbean Grace". This will used to transport people and supplies from the shore to "Caribbean Grace" at her mooring.|
