The royal gathering

Crew gladly received 1,200 visitors on board in just one day this week, a rise from the daily average for the port of Tema, post-pandemic. Among these, Logos Hope had the special pleasure of welcoming several royals and distinguished guests from Ghana. They were introduced to the Ship Ministry with the hope of encouraging the national leaders in their work for a country which has so warmly received its crew.

Logos Hope director Randy Grebe (United States) welcomed the honoured guests and said, “As I look across the room, I understand that everyone here is actually a person of influence […] and with influence comes responsibility. […] John Maxwell [said]: People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. I believe our guests who visit us here today are people who care. […] You all lead groups of people, cities, villages, or even a nation. That is very, very important.”

Randy then shared three principles he felt a good leader should follow: “Forgive! When we choose to forgive, life changes. […] Value other people, and don’t just value people, but add value to them. The Bible itself says, ‘Do to others as you would have them do it to you’. […] and certainly of course […] ‘love one another as I have loved you,’ the Father says.”

Nii Ahele Nunoo III, Abola chief, and advisor to the king, came on behalf of King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II. He reinforced Randy’s message, saying, “The key point of [everything] is love. If we love each other, we would never hurt each other. […] Today we learned a lot on this ship and when we leave, I think we should change our minds towards each and every one. We should be thankful for Logos Hope […] to be able to cooperate with them and share the Word of God; because when there's peace, there’s development.”

The following day King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, Ghanaian king of the Gã State in southern Ghana, came on board himself to meet the leaders, see the vessel and visit the bookfair. He said, “You have made your mark imparting knowledge to the world, not just that, but the experience of God’s grace to mankind. [I am] proud to be associated with your enterprise.”
