Does this boat look familiar?
We had a group of 7 this time. The captain stayed with the boat, but managed to do plenty of witnessing due to the attention it drew. We arrived around 10 AM and went back at 3 PM. In that time we managed to work half of the town. The people really seem to enjoy our visits there, and are eager to hear about the bible.
The first language of most in Kakabila is Miskito, but nearly all of them can speak English and Spanish fluently as well. The children however speak only Miskito, as they do not learn the other two until going to school. Neither can they read or write. I was able to play the video "Why study the bible" in Miskito for a family. The mother had been listening to my presentation in English, while the children played and did their own thing, but once the video started and they heard it was in Miskito I had their undivided attention. The entire group of about 6 children became completely silent as they watched the video. Realistically this would be the children's first contact with the truth in their own language, its times like this I remember why I came here.
