MIKE AND BETTY LAFONTAINE, NATIVE AMERICAN COUPLE, PRIME MOVERS BEHIND THE PHOENICIA
If God is with us, who can be against us?
There are thousands of ancient records and artifacts that confirm the importance of the Phoenicians in 600 B.C. when God told Lehi to take his family into the wilderness to escape Jerusalem’s pending destruction.
In just the last year, we have wistnessed thousands of mircles where the Hand of God has helped bring out the story that started in the Old World 2,622 years ago.
Surely, God prepared and directed the lives of Mike and Betty LaFontaine so that they would be ready for our time to take on the important task of bringing all the parts together for the reconstruction on the PHOENICIA in the New World.

Twenty-six centuries after the building of the ancient ship replica, Philip Beale captained the PHOENICIA and brought her to Florida where he handed her off to Mike and Betty. Today the rebuilding of this ship replica is in Iowa under the careful and able protection of the LaFontaine’s. The ship in Iowa is the only known replica of a 600 B.C. Phoenician ship in existence anywhere in the world.
