Airfare and waterproof gear has been covered! (Through other funding soures).
My biggest need now is an another $200/month support should cover higher living expenses.
$200 X 6 months = $1200. Monthly or one time donations can help cover this cost.
I will be flying with a team to Athens and we will travel by coach two hours west to meet the ship in Itea, Greece. There we will sign on as crew and we will do some sail training with the new team. The next weekend we will sail the ship around to the the SouthEast side of Athens (passing ancient Corinth on the way). Early the next week we will begin to work with ministries helping refugees that are stacking up in Greece due to closed boarders. We hear the situation on the ground is constantly evolving so we will not know details until we get there. After a few weeks, a decision will be made to stay there or move to one of the Greek islands off the Turkish coast where refugees are crossing to get into Greece.
More information to come!
I am at YWAM Harpenden (UK) this week for meetings settting up the Refugee outreaches. Things are coming together and will have more definte idea of where and what we will be doing.
One of my first major needs is to buy a plane ticket to Athens to get to the ship. With getting to the airport and airfare the price is abotu $250 right now. I would like to get the ticket before price goes up and need to confirm with the ship when I am coming.
Very practical need that you can help provide!
