The decision was as follows:
- The project to sail the 'Zong' replica slave-ship round UK ports would be put on the ‘backburner’, pending such a time as when adequate funding becomes available.
- MJR will continue to pray and take advice as to future timings and activities; and concentrate resources into existing commitments such as the exhibition, research and developing resources.
We will also now be reflecting on and re-visiting that original vision and other aspects of it that have arguably been sidelined by the effort expended in trying to get the Zong Project to happen. This re-focussing and re-calibrating process will be in a context of prayer and we ask those of you who do to join us in taking this vision back to God for fresh revelation. And to consider other ways in which you could offer input and support.
