1.6 million seafarers work in the world's international merchant fleet. They are lonely people who leave family for months at a time.
They love, hurt and worry just like you and me. When problems or tragedies arise at home, they are helpless to do anything.
Port of Hope Ministries is committed to bringing comfort, encouragement, Godly counsel and the Word of God to these crew members...one crew at a time...one crewman at a time.
