Progress Continues (11/19/2023)

We have been working on the Phoenicia for two years. We have put in over 6,000 hours of labor. The finished ship will weigh 40 tons. We have put together about 10 tons of timbers. We have moved up the learning curve. We now understand how and what needs to be done. This is a big project, and it will seriously impact the rewriting of ancient American history.

There are at least 30,000 hours of labor remaining for her construction. Our ability to raise money will only increase as the project progresses.

We pray for God’s blessing and invite all people of goodwill to join us in this meaningful restoration. Click here to donate as little as $10 monthly. We need donations, large and small.

There are about 10,000 joints. Every peg, every plank, and every piece of the two decks must be put in their proper place. We have the largest collection of Cedar of Lebanon logs in America. The cedars tie us to the stories of the Bible. They give the ship her place, legacy, and meaning. The ship connects the Old World to the New World 2,600 years ago.

The ship shows how Judah’s Prince Mulek escaped to the Heartland when other Jews were in captivity weeping on the banks of the rivers in Babylon. This is an important story from the Old Testament.
