LAUNCHING SCHOONER IXDOS

LAUNCHING SCHOONER IXDOS

 

As we near completion of the ship our expenses are extreme. We cannot go through with the launch until various vital systems have been completed. This cannot be done under pressure. We have to continue our steady progress and launch with an engine in working order, steering gear functioning properly, anchors and windlass in place;

so we can move out to anchor.

 

This means delaying launching until the New Year.

VOLUNTEER MARINE ENGINEER NEEDED

 

Now that our Perkins engine is on board

we need the help of an expert engineer to install it properly.

 

Please contact me if you can help us:

Dental Chair Donation from Mission Hospital

Mission Hospital, Phuket has very kindly donated a dental chair to our health mission ship.

It will become the centre-piece of our clinic on board.  We plan to use it as an operating table also.

We are very grateful indeed to Mission Hospital for such a valuable and meaningful gift.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

 

Thank You!

Finally they are back in Phuket safe and sound from their stand up paddle board crossing from Krabi to Phuket. The trip was to raise funds for the mission ship project “Stand up to save lives” which will assist in delivering vital health services to areas which can only be reached by boat. The crew was greeted by LEI children.
Thank you to all of the kind sponsors and the mission crew:
Tim, Ton, Luke (one of LEI’s founders) , Richard , Kit, Daniel, Tino,Trevor, Alex, and Cameron
