Sunday Inspiration and Photograph: Isaiah 40 v 31


“Those who trust in the LORD
will find new strength”
101_7973

Isaiah 40 v 31 is the verse printed in the souvenir posters of the vessel "Logos Hope" famously known as the floating book fair, while the photograph was taken inside the vessel, in a corner they called “Life X-perience”.  It is a long board posted with hundreds of “sticky notes” (post-it) with messages mostly words of encouragements from the visitors, participants,  and from those who shared their experiences and perspective from this interactive program.

Logos Hope slogan is
 “ Bringing knowledge, help and hope to the people of the world”
I would like to share their “Vision and Purpose”:

Bringing Knowledge
Over 40 million people in 160 different countries have walked up one of our ship's gangway to visit one of our floating book fairs. For many, it is their first ever opportunity to purchase good quality literature at a fraction of it's retail value. Many people without the means to study have learnt vital skills and been able to enhance their lives through a purchase from over 5,000 available titles, including books for studies, professional and career interests, individual development and personal growth. Cultural variety abounds with over 45 nations represented on board. For visitors, opportunities to meet crew provide insights into the wider world, while interactive programs offer fresh perspectives.

Bringing Help
Sailing from port to port, the crew experience the needs of the world first-hand. Being in a position to help whether by donating supplies, building a house, or offering a listening ear is both a privilege and a responsibility. The ships seek to bring aid and relief in situations of particular need as a practical demonstration of God's love for mankind. Coupled with their promotion of education, this approach aims not only to alleviate immediate needs, but also to bring long-term change in each community.

Bringing Hope
Every person has a inbuilt need for hope and purpose in life. Our volunteer crew seeks to bring new hope by their service on board as a community focused on the needs of others. They offer hope through their actions and their interaction with others. Every crew member has a story to tell of a transformation in their personal life that has given them hope and purpose.


A Blessed and Hopeful Sunday everyone!
