How to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in this world is what New Horizons is all about. Please check out our website at www.newhorizonsofswfl.org We provide educational opportuinities for at-risk children in Southwest Florida. We are able to provide humanitarian aid to our Caribbean neighbors with our 68-foot cargo schooner, "Star of the Sea." The schooner is also used as a teaching tool for the "Call to Adventure" program that mentors young men at sea.

Great Inagua Standby
The weather forecast called for 8-12 ft seas and 30+ knots of wind, I've been in this same area with these conditions before and with a boat full of food and a crew that was still a little green I decided to wait out the night and see what the morning would bring (much to the relief of the crew!) I again encountered Brother Carl who invited the crew to his house for dinner. We listened to some recorded music that Carl had sung many years ago as his nephew Louis cooked dinner for us. After a wonderful meal Carl brought out his Bible and led a beautiful devotion for us from II Corinthians. In his 80's now, Brother Carl still does one on one ministry with some local men who are facing the problems of today, we were able to meet several of the men over the course of the evening and we all felt honored to share some time with this mighty man of God. Upon return to the schooner we saw that the mailboat was getting ready to leave and we took bets as to how he would maneuver to miss us on the way out
