First step: a team of prayer to prepare the project

This is about the vision we have received, through which the Lord wanted us to rent a vessel for the prayer of repentance and forgiveness to break the curse due to the triangular trade (slave trade between Europe, Africa and the New World).

The ship will depart from Liverpool to the European ports of Amsterdam in Holland then to Nantes and Bordeaux in France. She will then navigate to the West African ports where she docks in Senegal where the first day of prayer on African soil is planned with a visit to Goree. The African ports currently affected by this operation are: Free Town in Sierra Leone, Monrovia, Liberia, and Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire, Accra Ghana, Douala Cameroon and Luanda in Angola. This list is not definitive. If African historians want us to make reasoned suggestions on African countries where the ship should dock, we are open to any proposal. A ceremony of repentance and forgiveness will be organized in each country visited and local churches will be asked to organize a large gathering of prayer.

We'll then head for South America where we will make three Brazilian ports, including a little known and yet had a major slave trade: Sao Luis. We still hesitate on the other two. Your advice will be welcome, given that we want to avoid large cities where the organization of such an event will not be obvious and will be "lost in the masses."

We will then continue with French Guiana before sailing to the Caribbean where we will organize events throughout the islands, wherever it is needed and we will be there as long as necessary as it is an essential part of this project . We expect the suggestions MANI Coordinator for the Caribbean We conclude with the United States with the ports of New Orleans, New York and Boston. Then the boat will return to Liverpool where he's gone.

The ship will include Christians from all backgrounds, affected by this issue, including West Indians, Americans, Africans and Europeans who have at heart repentance, forgiveness and reconciliation between the peoples affected by this scourge.

We have two prayer requests that we want to submit:

- We need to form a prayer team that will bring this project to the throne of grace during the two years of preparation (it is the minimum it takes to meet all the protagonists in all the countries concerned, to establish an organizing committees and recruit the prayer team in the ship, that will be missionary and will have to find support during their mission) and for the duration of the project that could take three to six months. That is why I give you this information to solicit your participation in the team of intercession. If you feel called to support this work you can contact us by email ( or by sending a comment to this message. So we will keep you informed of steps and send you as regularly as possible the subjects of prayer.

- We are seeking a name for this project, perhaps a biblical name or a reference that can realistically illustrate the project. Any suggestions would be welcome.

May God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ bless you, may He be gracious to us. May the Lord God and father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ bless you abundantly.
