What kinds of things have helped you when you faced trouble when you were traveling?  Here’s a small piece of a shipwreck story that took place in  the Mediterranean Sea

         ‘When Paul was on the ship during a terrible storm, he gave comfort to his shipmates in this way:

“I urge you to keep up your courage, for there shall be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship.  For this very night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood before me, saying,

“Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has granted you all those who are sailing with you.”

“Therefore, keep up your courage men, for I believe God, that it will turn out exactly as I have been told.  But we must run aground on a certain island.”’

Acts 27:22-26
