We cannot visit every ship.
To make the best use of our time and resources we choose specific vessels that
regularly return to our port and
build a long-term presence on the vessel so we can
build strong, ongoing relationships with seafarers.
We deliberately go to ships where we face
the fewest language obstacles and
the least cultural, religious or political resistance so we can
openly serve the practical and spiritual needs of all seafarers,
present Christ in an appropriate and respectful manner, and
seek out and encourage Christians.
That last point is our greatest reason for visiting any vessel.
