Crossing The Atlantic Ocean and God Was There

DSC00275

 

Castoro 10, an Oil Pipelaying Vessel was towed from Curacao to Congo on the 6th of August 2014. It was a month-long journey cruising the Atlantic Ocean and a great experience crossing the  Equator too. I was on board together with sixty-eight others.

There were mixed feelings , perhaps, when the trip started. We were travelling on a vast space of nothingness but still I have seen the beauty of life! A pair of doves was with us!

One morning before sunrise, the brown bird joined me in the helideck where I have started the day praying the rosary! Amidst the blue skies, floating white clouds, and the bright orange sunrise on the horizon of the dark blue ocean I realized it was a perfect day acknowledging the Author of the beauty of Creation.

It was so refreshing to feel the seabreeze and the splashing of the waves on the side of the ship made me felt really close to heaven. I could only thank God for the new day, another experience of His great love. He is indeed real and for the moment I knew with faith that I was sitting on His great Hands. I had so much joy!DSC00548

Finish The Race ( Story of Courage)

1968 Olympic marathon

John Stephen Akhwari ( born 1938 in Mbulu, Tanganyika) is a Tanzanian former marathon runner. He represented Tanzania in the marathon at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico city.

While competing in the marathon in Mexico City, Akhwari cramped up due to the high altitude of the city. He had not trained at such an altitude back in his country. At the 19 kilometer point during the 42 km race, there was jockeying for position between some runners and he was hit. He fell badly wounding his knee and dislocated that joint plus his shoulder hit hard against the pavement. He however continued running, finishing last among the 57 competitors who completed the race (75 had started). The winner of the marathon, Mamo Wolde of Ethiopia, finished in 2:20:26. Akhwari finished in 3:25:27, when there were only a few thousand people left in the stadium, and the sun had set. A television crew was sent out from the medal ceremony when word was received that there was one more runner about to finish.

As he finally crossed the finish line a cheer came from the small crowd. When interviewed later and asked why he continued running, he said, “My country did not send me 5,000 miles just to start the race; they sent me to finish the race.”
