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.

After enjoying the wonderful hospitality at Bob Pratt's Southside Marina and an uneventful sail from Provo we arrived at Great Inagua early in the morning. Customs went fairly smoothly and once again Brother Carl helped with the money for the transshipment bond. The little harbor was full with captured drug freighters and other local boats so we moved boats around so we could squeeze in for the loading process. We got all the cargo aboard and secured by 1830 and then stood offshore while we made ready for sea and ate dinner. Underway by 2100 for the Windward passage and Haiti!
