Ms. B. got into her boat.  She left Spain.  She sailed past Africa.  She went all the way around the world!

She is the first woman from America to make that trip alone.

Pray: Thank God for the blessing of travel. It is a joy to see the many places God has made.

Cole Brauer is the first woman from the United States to sail around the world by herself. Ms. Brauer is 29. She is from New York. She left Spain in October on her 40-foot sailboat named First Light. It took her 130 days to complete the Global Solo Challenge. She finished in March. She says a sailor has to know how to fix everything on a boat. A sailor also has to keep working when tired.

“Take courage. Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.” (2 Chronicles 15:7)
