|We have now purchased the
and are putting it on the canals in the East Midlands next spring. (2019)
(means "Blessing waves" or "Waves of Blessing") is 70ft long and is a butty (a boat without an engine.)
We shall fitting the boat out with electric propulsion, using solar as much as possible for charging the batteries. And we shall be fitting it out inside
Its an amazing story, as it always is when prayer is answered. The boat is now in its mooring at
Market Bosworth. We towed it into the Marina at 11am on the 2nd of September 2018
After a journey which was hard work, but from which there was a lot of blessing.
See the Segenswelle Story
We are now starting to do the alterations to the boat.
Firstly there is the electric propulsion unit that has to be built into a rudder; using a Lynch Motor, and a propeller shaft. We are talking to suppliers and engineers now.
Secondly there are alterations to back of the boat, at the back we are building in an extension to the cabin (the back end of the canvas section in the photo opposite) and the black canvas is to be replaced by shutters. The last bit over the rudder will remain covered by the black canvas.
Thirdly we need to equip the interior with a new galley, seating and projection equipment etc. for the retreat
Fourthly we are going to have to repaint it inside and out.
Please pray for opportunities to share the Gospel and the love of Jesus in word and in action.
We are anticipating doing day retreats and fellowship days
Some Retreats will be "Faith/prayer Retreats"
others could cover such subjects as Nutrition, Conservation, maybe even crafts.
