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 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.

Summer Orphanage Sail

The lists are done (are they ever done?) the first load of cargo is loaded and secured, the weather is going to cooperate for departure, I think it's time to go!
Our first stop will be the Old Bight mission home on Cat Island, Bahamas where we will deliver cargo and spend time with the kids. We will also be attending the high school graduation of Shaquille Moss who crewed last summer on the trip to Haiti. Many thanks are extended to all the supporters who have made this trip possible, most notably the Estero United Methodist, the Fountainhead Foundation, and John and Mary Barrett whose financial help made this trip possible. Special thanks to the Call to Adventure crew, first mate Zach Griffen, and artist Marvin Rouse who provided lots of labor in painting and other maintenance. As always please keep the crew in your prayers, we need them and always feel them when things get interesting.
