We are excited to be sharing our books with the team from Logos Hope, which will be in Maputo from the 24th of February until the 15th of March, whereafter it will sail to South Africa.
Operation Mobilisation (OM) started their Ships Ministry in 1970 as s part of the global Christian training and outreach movement, OM International. Since then OM’s ships have visited over 500 different ports in 151 countries and territories and welcomed over 44 million visitors on board.
The ship remains in each port for about two weeks and opens the gangways to hundreds and sometimes thousands of visitors each day. In the past 45 years, the ships have averaged one million visitors per year.
The floating book fair offers over 5,000 titles, providing many visitors their first-ever opportunity to purchase quality educational and Christian literature. Teams go from the ship into surrounding areas to supply aid and community care. In each port, the ship’s crew joins local churches to bring hope and show love to people whatever their circumstance, culture or background.
Their goal is to bring knowledge, help and hope to the people of the world. They do this by supplying vital literature resources, encouraging cross-cultural understanding, training young people for more effective life and service, providing needed relief, and sharing a message of hope in God wherever there is opportunity.
