Views from Assisi

"The story of St. Francis of Assisi is told in the churches in Assisi. St. Francis received his calling to "Rebuild my Church" at St. Damiano. St. Claire would call this home for herself and her sisters. The Rivo Torto Church is built over the shelter Francis and the monks used as a temporary home. The Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels (Los Angeles) is built over the chapel given to Francis to rebuild - the Poriunzicola - he is buried here. Finally is St. Francis Basilica and monastery in Assisi. Filled with frescos from the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Views from Assisi and the area around - including my hotel. Fantastic vistas. We went from fog and clouds to sunshine as the day progressed."

Friendships are Blossoming in Cuba

In October, Paula King completed two cruises to Cuba with EO guests spending two weeks on the Fathom Adonia. She was also on EO's inaugural cruise to Cuba in the Spring. She share's her thoughts below describing her experiences as her time was ending on the island nation for this season.

Another fantastic day in Cuba! We had a worship service at the Havana Central Methodist Church and visited with the administrators of the Seminary. Then we had an incredible lunch before going to Fusterlandia and the local craft market. It was especially good to see friends here from the last two cruises. God is good!!
