Pray for our Neighbourhood

Was that a bang, gun shot or what? was Tim's thoughts when he was awoken in the middle of the night. Somehow over the years, from all Tim's time on the ships, he's managed to train his ears to sense changes in any pattern of noises whilst asleep like when an engine cuts out, or a sail breaks and is able to wake up and respond. This is exactly what he was able to do last night as the car that was parked in front of ours was petrol bombed. Fortunately he was able to get there in time to move our car out of the way before that caught on fire too.
Please pray for this neighbourhood. Throughout our time here the crew have been committed to pray for this area and there have been some significant improvements in crime here, with lives touched in different ways as many friendships have been made. Pray that this is just a one off incident and things will continue as before.

Mr Strong & Miss Greedy Venture Out!

There are times when things get busy and we have to let our hair down and have some fun. There are a few crew members who love arranging theme parties so crew can get together and have some fun. We managed to get to the last one which was a Mr Men party. The Mr Men stories are always a favourite with children and include a good message.
(if you haven't heard of them before click here to learn more http://www.mrmen.net/ )
So with our glue sticks & paint at the ready we got cutting and sticking to make our costumes.
One top tip for if you ever need to make a costume....make sure you can sit in it!
In our haste we forgot to make an allowance for Tim to sit for the evening, as you can see he didn't have a very comfortable evening!

2 More Lifeboats!

Just when you thought that installing two 150 man lifeboats would be enough, we go and put another 2 on. Last month saw the final installment of two 50 man lifeboats being loaded onto the ship. A lot of work has gone into this with many alterations to make them fit, so it was very satisfying to at last see them hanging from their davits. I just hope we never have to use them for other than training, but you never want to be without them!
