Part 2 of Students on Logos Hope Vision Trip

Yurika, from Japan
Before I joined the ship, it was difficult to talk to people because I am shy. But while on board, God challenged me to overcome this fear by shifting my feelings to others. That helped me to communicate with people from around the world! At the book fair, I welcomed and introduced the Logos Hope to visitors and while working as a cleaning angel, I talked to crew members. Not only that, we shared the gospel on the streets of Aruba. What a great learning experience!

This unforgettable experience was a taste of heaven. I see it as a ship bringing hope to everyone along with the book fair of knowledge. God is challenging me to be a stronger prayer warrior, to gain more knowledge, and to equip myself for global missions!

My highlights

  • Meeting crew members and hearing their testimonies. I was touched that they persevered through life’s challenges and trusted God.
  • Connecting with people in Aruba by visiting churches and businesses.
  • Working in different departments on board, like laundry, the book fair, and hosting a massage workshop for the crew.

I had the joy and challenge to help with preparation and promotion of this vision trip. Guiding the students to raise support, praying with them, going with them on the ship, and seeing God change their lives was a worthwhile experience! This trip also expanded my horizons, although my wife and I were on the first Logos Hope ship on its maiden voyage in Asia 46 years ago, just after our marriage in India!

My prayer is that God continues the work He has started with the students who went on the trip. May many more of our internationals get the opportunity to experience missions first hand, so they may be more equipped to share the gospel when they go back to their home countries.

The entire team was very encouraged through the experience of walking with God and experiencing His wonderful work. None of this could have happened without your support and prayer.
