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:

OUR MARATHON MAN HAS DONE IT AGAIN!
Last time B.I.S.P. teacher Paul Preen did the Tokyo marathon and
raised funds for our sails.
This time he has done the Surrey 100 bike marathon and
raised funds for the champagne at the launch of Mission Ship Ixdos on Christmas Day
at Boat Lagoon h.w. 15:00
WOW! CHEERS PAUL!
SEE YOU AT CHRISTMAS!
We are excited to announce the schedule for the launch of Schooner IXDOS
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.
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
