A message of love and hope

A team of Logos Hope’s crewmembers visited the Free Brothers Church in Veracruz to share their message of love and hope. Through drama, dance and singing, they were able to interact with children, teenagers and adults during the afternoon outreach.

The church’s pastor, Miguel Ángel Serrano, was excited to receive the visitors. “We have felt your love and we are very grateful for this beautiful visit!” he said.

Pastor Serrano told the crew that his church has been running for 59 years. One of its ministries sends the youth group on weekly visits to a care home for elderly people; where the young people bring joy to the residents by sharing stories, singing and bringing them food. The church has also sent missionaries to work with tribal people and translate Scripture into their local language.

After learning about which countries in the world are most in need of people to share the hope of the gospel, the children and teenagers listened in silence as Nadine Betz (Germany) told them how God can heal an otherwise destroyed life. Nadine demonstrated her message by tearing pieces of paper, which eventually unfolded to make the shape of a cross.

The children enjoyed singing songs of praise and listening as crewmembers Benny Lin (East Asia Pacific) and Nathan Prokopchuk (Canada) told their personal stories.

“I want to get to know the ship and navigate all over the world!” said Alan Jhouse, a 15-year-old who was full of enthusiasm on hearing about the Ship Ministry. Thirteen year-old Elisa Huerta was also very excited and smiled happily at her visitors. “I am going to be a doctor to join the ship and help the most needy people,” she said. 

One of the congregation, Marta Chávez, said it had been “an immense joy” to have Logos Hope crewmembers in her church. “Their presence is God´s gift and it encourages us to keep going on with enthusiasm and faith,” she said.
