It’s been less than one year since Doulos Hope was added to the ship fleet and at the start of a new one, the renovation work on board is almost complete!
Over the past eight months, cabins and offices have been rearranged and refurbished, the galley (ship’s kitchen) overhauled, meeting and event rooms readied, storage space created and a new bookfair canopy added to Doulos Hope’s top deck!
As the team enters the final few weeks of the renovation process, we praise God as we look back on all that has been accomplished and give thanks for His provision and safety throughout the project.
While technical testing continues this week after further sea trials which took place in early January, plans are also being made for Doulos Hope to leave Singapore in the coming days and dock in Penang, Malaysia. Here, minor work projects will be finished and crew handover continued.
How can you get involved?
As we move into a new preparation and set-up phase however, there’s still lots to do!
Please continue to pray with us for the need of more crew, particularly over the next six-month period. Both professionals and those willing to say yes to helping where needed are required. To sign up to pray for the Ship Ministry on a regular basis, click here.
