Prayer Diary

Today we had a more relaxed time as a family and went out for lunch. It has been a joy to get to know Michelle's boyfriend, Dan. They both have such a passion for Jesus and to share good news. Pray that God will guide them as they take steps of faith to invest in his kingdom.

Rebecca arrives tomorrow. We are excited that we will be able to be together for Christmas. The community on the Logos Hope is beginning to settle into life and work. We are very thankful for God's grace and provision through this time. Christmas is a time to remember that God is with us and that he has generously provided salvation that brings true transformation of the heart in the power of his Spirit.

It is such an encouragement to see the commitment of the leaders in Kiel towards the other so project work. Every Friday night we have a special partners event to update them on the progress with the work. Please continue to pray for God to provide needs in finance and skilled people for the jobs that need to be done.

One of the critical areas of work that will need the focus of qualified engineers with unique survey work for the engine room. Two of the main engines will need to be overhauled in 2008. We will need teams of engineers, these are mechanics and other handy and to complete these projects in order for us to obtain the passenger ship safety certificate and to sail from here.

Today Ann and I did some Christmas shopping. We were doing quite well until I sat down for a cup of coffee. Then we lost each other. We eventually met again back on the ship with Ann arriving back just five minutes before me.

On Monday the project work schedule begins. We will have breakfast and devotions together at 7:30 a.m. each morning. On Monday Mike will share the word. Pray for an anointing and for message that will connect with the heart of everyone on board. Then work will begin at 8 a.m.

We have project workers joining us each day to help and some come for a week or more. Praise God for the steps that he is enabling us to take into the future.
