Sometimes Denis comments to us that "nothing spectacular has happened" for a while. Well, we happen to think the sheer fact that God has called people to visit ships on a regular basis is reasonably spectacular. It isn't a glamorous job. But SCFS workers visit ships in all weathers, and occasionally at very antisocial hours. Sometimes a ship visit consists of little more than seeing to some ordinary welfare need – or simply time spent lending an ear to a lonely or worried seafarer. The fact that someone has boarded that ship with the sole intention of being there for the benefit of the crew is pretty spectacular as far as the crew are concerned! We believe that God can use these simple encounters in ways we might never fully understand.
