“Close to the Wind” is a phrase indicating danger, threat, challenge, courage and risk. All of these will be found in this gripping and faith-raising story of Maurice and Hilary Vitty.
This book is a wonderful adventure story, it is a true story, and it is a young people’s story guaranteed to shake those who are older land-lubber settlers in the Christian faith for us to get up and go “ for the Lord your God is with you” Josh 1v9.
May all who read this faith manual be inspired in faith and good works.

Maurice and Hilary Vitty bring an authentic passion for God and an unwavering resolve to do whatever God enables them to do to make the difference in the lives of people who desperately need help, healing, rescue and a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. This book tells a fascinating story of faith, compassion and obedience to the leading of God.

It was in reading Maurices first book , Great Exploits or Trivial Pursuit? That I first gained a vision for living by faith.The depth of community I experienced in SEACARE is something I have never found since-I miss that. I am grateful that my five years onboard the Redeemer helped build a foundation that shaped my heart for many years of ministry ahead.
