Give Them Eyes to See
Article submitted by Cody and Michaela Fulk, Field Coordinators in Uganda One way we are trying to help the community is by creating jobs. We are not big on giving handouts.

Trading Leather for Canvas
After 12 years in ministry as an evangelist with the Christian Motorcyclists Association of Canada, we felt that God was calling us to hang up our leathers and move on to other things. We knew God wasn’t finished with us yet, but were unsure what He had in mind until a mysterious phone call left us in possession of a 47’ ketch rigged sailboat for ministry.
Now our family of 7 (6 sailing fulltime) has found ourselves trading our leather for canvas and without the confines of roads and highways have discovered the potential of serving God on the high seas.
The boat (aptly named Emmanuel) is now our home. We have been spending the past few months equipping her and ourselves for the cruising/ministry life. The New Year will find us heading to the Caribbean and points beyond.
Emmanuel is a vessel dedicated to serving the servants (those already doing the work) by coming alongside to equip and encourage. She will bring aid to the church in 3 ways:
1. Spiritual (scripture and training material, teaching, equipping the church)
2. Physical (food, clothing, equipment and resources)
3. Medical (medicines, vitamins and supplies. The vessel also provides an area where trained professionals can work and treat patients.) Emmanuel’s crew will always be prepared to give a reason for the hope that they have.
VISION STATEMENT: Serving the servants in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean with Emmanuel (God with us). Psalm 65:5 “You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas”.
