Christmas

We rejoice as we remember the miraculous birth of Jesus. His life is now in us. This is God’s gift. It is the gift of salvation. The miracle of His presence with us transforms our understanding of reality. It is a time to be refreshed and to remember with joy this gift of Christ with us.

Nothing is impossible for God! We can trust him for the miraculous. You are living the miracle of His presence. He is able to do far more than we imagine. Thank Him for the gift of forgiveness. Thank Him for the gift of righteousness. Thank Him for the gift of His love. Thank Him for the gift of His PEACE. Thank Him for the gift of His Son with us today.

Pray for the Oppressed

Evil holds millions captive to slavery, poverty, oppression, disease and addiction. Pray for God's intervention. Pray for those who take initiative to bring transformation and restore dignity to the broken peoples of our world. Check these websites for information on the Dalits of India:

Financial Support

How are we financed on Logos Hope

Those on board the Logos Hope are responsible for raising personal financial support. This support provides for all our personal needs while on board including food and accomodation, toiletries, Esther's schooling, medical needs and even pocket money. It also helps towards the overall running costs of the ship such as fuel, port fees etc.

We also need to raise some extra support to help Rebecca complete her education. Write to her if you would like more details. heygirl1@gmail.com

If you would like to be partners with us and help support us financially, please contact us by email for more details:

Living by Faith

We look back over this last year with gratitude for the faithfulness of God and His unfailing love demonstrated in so many ways. We have expeienced His grace. He has given what we do not deserve. So much has been done on board to prepare the ship. We see His guiding hand in the details of our daily lives.

He is faithful towards us. He sees the frustrations and failures. We can tust His unfailing love. In Zehariah 3 we have a clear picture of what it means to stand in the presence of God in need of His grace.

1. We stand in His presence believing and confessing our need of Him
2. We stand in His presence knowing that the Lord rejects the accusations
3. We stand in His presence to receive His righteousness as a gift of grace
4. We stand in His presence with Hope in the work of the Messiah.
