Logos Hope's Maiden Visit to Port Klang
THE MV Logos Hope is the newest ship of Operation Mobilisation (OM) and will visit Port Klang from 29 Sept to 23 Oct 2011. This is the vessel's first call in Malaysia. Logos Hope replaces the MV Doulos which last visited Port Klang in 2006.
Known as the world's largest floating book fair, the ship carries over 5,000 titles on a wide range of subjects for sale at discounted prices. Through this, the ship has met the educational needs of communities around the world. The book fair will open daily for the general public.
Logos Hope is also here to bless the community through conferences and seminars on board, through ministry teams sent on outreach, and through a two-week volunteer programme for Malaysians to experience work and service on the ship.
Those interested in the volunteer or "DEEP Discipleship" programme (Discipleship, Exposure to Missions, Express His Love, Practical Work) can choose from two phases in Port Klang from 29 Sept to 11 Oct, and 12 to 23 Oct. Volunteers work in one of the ship's departments, and are discipled through evangelism, Bible studies and ministry. The programme is free and inclusive of lunch and dinner, but transport to and from the ship and accommodation are not provided. Applications to join this programme must be submitted by 31 Aug.
Christian leaders looking to partner with Logos Hope for ministry opportunities can contact Jessica Kiely (email firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile 012-281 9054) for onboard conferences and seminars, and Jongmin Lee (email email@example.com or mobile 012-281 9043), for ministry and outreach teams.
Applications for the DEEP Discipleship programme should also be sent to the same contact persons.
Paid tours of the ship for church groups can also be arranged daily except on Mondays. Tour bookings will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Make bookings by contacting Elina Choo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 012-283 3231.
A global ministry such as Logos Hope's requires funding, and gifts from local churches will be welcomed. Those who would like to support Logos Hope's ministry in Malaysia can contact Barnard Modimakwane at email@example.com or 012-281 8794.
Note: Besides Port Klang, Logos Hope will also visit other Malaysian ports including Penang (30 Aug - 26 Sept), Kuching (28 Oct - 14 Nov) & Kota Kinabalu (18 Nov - 4 Dec).
