"I visited a ship crewed by Filipinos. It was my second visit to this ship and I sat in the mess room talking. I offered a man a Bible, "No! wait!" he said, and left the mess room. It was not long before he had returned, saying, "Do you know Volker?"
He then showed me the Bible that Volker had given him back in 1994. He went on to say that he takes his Bible with him always and he remembers a Christian friend called Volker." In case you don't know, Volker is one of the SCFS workers in Hamburg.
We may never know the outcome of our encounters on the ships we visit, but they are so important and we must carry on faithfully in the work God has called us all to do, to his glory.
