Wherever the Wind Blows

Welcome aboard Ankyrios!

Hello friends and welcome to our ministry page! We’re a family of 7 aboard a 38′ catamaran sailing wherever the “wind” blows. The Greek word for wind is pneuma – which is also the same Greek word used for Holy Spirit in the New Testament of the Bible. So, we’re not only sailing where the wind blows, we’re sailing to where the Holy Spirit is leading us.

We named our sailboat Ankyrios. It’s really just a word we made up but it has great meaning to us. It’s from two Greek words, ankura, translated as anchor, and kyrios, which means Lord. Therefore, we are anchored in the Lord – Ankyrios. 

Please join us on our adventure wherever God leads us to serve.

    1. Yali, we are thankful that the Lord is calling others to serve in similar ways. There definitely is a need. Thank you for your prayers. We will certainly join you in praying for your future ministry. As for how we got started, I would point you to our post titled “Why Not Now.” It tells about how God orchestrated the purchase of the boat.

    1. So good to meet you as well. We look forward to getting to know all the brothers and sisters here better. Pastor Willy asked me to preach next week so that will be nice.
