We are SO excited that after many months, we have FINALLY been able to get our boat properly outfitted to be able to obtain the proper documentation to get our boat licensed.

Often the people who ride in my boat are not very experienced swimmers and they have appreciated having the extra safety equipment I have added to the boat to meet the new boating regulations here in Brazil.

Every Friday I go to the nearest town to pick up the produce for everyone who lives in our community. Sometimes the boat gets quite loaded down with veggies and missionaries who want a ride back out to the school.

I usually take advantage of this time to have a helper come along for some special father/child bonding times. (Ice cream always helps!)

The boat has been extremely practical and vital in our ministry ranging medical appointments, outreaches, fishing trips, shoppping trips, and camping trips just to name a few. We want to express our sincere appreciation to everyone who generously gave toward this project so we could have this tool to allow us to be more effective in the ministry.
