Hey! Sorry its taken me so long to update this. Things have been busy here and typically the internet connection is very spotty, so I haven’t been able to keep everyone as updated as I would like.
As of right now we’re docked in french harbor, which is kind of our home base, there is internet in town, as well as a grocery store and other necessary supplies. I can’t remember exactly the specific type of boat(s) we are on, but we have two 46-foot sailing catamarans, which are really really cool.
But here is what has happened so far: I already mentioned orientation week. The next week week we had our first speaker, Jon Peterson, Jon has been a pastor for over 25 years, and he is an occasional professor at Fuller Theological eminary. We went though the book of John with him, and we read it 5 times in 5 days which was pretty intense. It was really great sitting and talking with him, and just having another male on the boat!
Our second speaker was a woman named Dina who talked about spiritual gifts/leadership/ Myers Briggs personality type stuff. She just left today. Having her here was really good as far as learning about how to be a better listener, a more impactful (and yes I did just make that word up) friend, and many other things.
Tomorrow we are sailing to a nearby island called Guanaja, which should be alot of fun. Chris, our base leader/ Destination Paradise founder/ boat captain is speaking. Other than that I’ve been getting alot of reading done, as wells as attempting to swim a quarter mile each day (which is tougher than it seems!) and alot of other things. All in all, its been REALLY good so far. So yeah!
