    Day 8/9: Our Last Day

    Wow, how has the week gone by this fast? Yesterday was our last full day together and this morning we disembarked and headed our separate ways. It has truly been an incredible week. Hume New England, Portland, Bar Harbor, Saint John and Halifax, along with (a few) colorful trees, beautiful lighthouses and Dathan’s favorite . . . […]

    Day 7: Halifax, Nova Scotia

    Halifax, Nova Scotia (or, New Scotland) was the setting for today’s adventure. There was a great little walk along the harbor with ships, restaurants, shops and activities. It was a (relatively) warm afternoon and the perfect weather to explore. Some of our group, myself included, visited the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. It was a […]

    Day 6: A Day at Sea

    Today, after being busy and active in ports the first several days of the cruise, it was nice to take a day and stay put. We met as a group this morning and briefly heard from Greg Smith, Chairman of our Board of Director, who shared about the board and how they function. Then Dathan […]

    Day 5: Saint John, New Brunswick

    This morning we sailed into Canada and docked in Saint John, New Brunswick. Saint John is located within the Bay of Fundy which we learned has the highest tides in the world. They change around 30 feet twice a day! Those that took a bus tour of the city got to see the “Reversing Rapids”, which […]

    Day 4: Bar Harbor, Maine

    What an amazingly beautiful day we had today in Bar Harbor, Maine (pronounced bah-habah). We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather, which feels like such a gift after expecting to be in a storm this week. In order to make it to Bar Harbor, we took smaller boats from our cruise ship to the […]

    Day 3: Portland, Maine

    This morning we woke up with our arrival in Portland, Maine. Some were up to see the sunrise and left the ship nice and early. Others slept in and took their time getting off the boat. Our group did all sorts of things today! Some did trolly tours, or boat tours to see the local lighthouses. […]

    Day 2: Setting Sail

    Day 2: And We’re Off! After breakfast this morning we boarded our buses for the short journey to the cruise terminal. We painlessly (at least it seemed to me) made our way through the check in process and were the first ones on the boat. You know . . . eager beavers over here. We looked […]

    Day 1: Rain, Donuts and Vision at Hume New England

    Day 1: Hume New England Tour Day! “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes” said Erik Thoennes, a Connecticut native and our speaker for the week. Considering the chilly, windy and rainy weather at Hume New England today, I’d say we all agreed.   We started bright and early on our 2+ […]

    Day 0: We Made It!

    Today 93 Hume friends and supporters traveled from all different places to join together in Boston, Massachsetts. Things back at the lake may be complicated in lieu of the Rough Fire and with all of our fall events canceled, but ministry is still taking place! This week, that means we’re doing that across the country. We are […]

    Hume International Goes to South Africa

    Hume Lake has always held a special place in my heart. As a junior higher I can vividly remember coming back to California for the summer from Quito, Ecuador where my parents were missionaries. I had the privilege of being one of those kids that got to call Hume home for the summer as my […]
