On the way

Mike returned to the Logos Hope yesterday after a good time interacting with OM leaders at the International Leaders Forum in Brazil. It was a long journey home with delayed flights.

He was on board to share at a Celebration event with Swedish Partners.

Today, we sail to Harlingen in The Netherlands.

The Logos Hope is about PEOPLE:

Praying, providing resources, and participating in the ministry
Experiencing knowledge, help and hope in the interactive and multifaceted environment
Opening hearts to God's extra-ordinary agenda in our lives
Progressing in faith through training and character building experiences
Loving the needy and hurting in our world today
Everyone taking a step closer to God as they encounter His power and presence.
