Mike, Ann and Hilde (captain's wife) giving greetings through a video link to a meeting at the COVE, which is Billy Graham's centre in the US.


This week we celebrated Ann's 50th birthday. The ship's community enjoyed a good curry on the day, Thursday, 17th April. On Wednesday we had a relaxed evening with about 50 others to share appreciation for Ann and to reflect on the investment of her life.

Work is progressing in the dining room. We now eat in the Logos Lounge which is our usual meeting place for the community. By the end of the month we hope to be back in a completed lounge.

The flooring on deck looks great. The Book fair area is now completed. This is the experience deck where we hope to see millions of people walk in the years ahead.

On Monday, Mike will go to Mosbach for some leadership meetings. Then on Wednesday next week we will travel to Denmark for some ministry with OM there.

Last night another 200 youth filled the Logos Lounge. After a simple good news message 20 came forward for prayer. We continue to ask for lives to be tranformed and for the message of forgiveness, Love and Hope to restore the walls of truth in a generation gripped by lies.
