Aboard the “Encounter” you’ll have the opportunity to experience the joy and beauty of sailing among some of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean Sea. In the evenings however, you’ll be able to relax as you gaze at the setting sun, laying safely at anchor in a remote cove enjoying fine Greek and international meals, good company and the gentle sounds of the sea. The daily schedule will involve sail training, knots, navigation, snorkeling over reefs and through caves, cliff jumping and windsurfing with lessons included, also excursions ashore, as well as ample opportunity to relax with a good book or chat with a friend, or just lay on the deck and soak in the sun. Most days we will take the opportunity to explore God’s Word in an informal and friendly atmosphere.

Ferdinand Ludwig and fellow architects, Oliver Storz and Hannes Schwertfeger, call their new specialty “building botany.” As part of this, the three men are building structures made from plants as well as studying the elasticity of plane trees and examining how effectively willows can grow around steel pipes at the University of Stuttgart’s Institute of Basics in Modern Architectural Design. In this way, they plan to begin building an eight-meter (26-foot) tower near Lake Constance in southern Germany at the end of July.
