Hutterian Emergency Aquatic Response Team (HEART) announces the completion of its new boat and praises God for providing them with the new equipment.
On August 29, the HEART Team announced on Facebook that their new boat, the Stabicraft 2500 ultracab XL has been completed and is ready to get on the water to save lives.
The boat took more than 20 months to complete and was put together with the help of many people and organizations that offered donations, parts and tools and time.
"We want to especially acknowledge and thank Naomi Murray, who joined our team as fundraising coordinator in honour of her late father Daryll Fenton," says the Facebook post. "The passion and tenacity which you've poured into this special project will minister God's love to many hurting families. Your dad would be so proud!"
The post continues to thank other partners, such as Scott Dickson, MNP, the Planaden family, KG Foundation, the boards of The Thomas Sill Foundation, The Morris Area Foundation, The Jasmine Foundation, Vantage Canada, and Steinbach Holiday RV and Marine.
The HEART Team finishes the Facebook post by thanking God.
"Last but greatest of all we Thank God for His guidance and provision during this journey! May You always be our Captain Lord. Keep us and this boat safe as we serve you in waters strange and familiar. Whenever we head out, come with us! When we return, comfort us! Bless this work to your honour and Glory in Jesus’ Name, Amen!"
On the port and starboard sides of the boat is a bible verse, Psalm 34:18. "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
