On Friday we travelled as a family to Ocean Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui to see the Logos Hope. Carrying more than 5000 books and measuring more than 430 feet long, the Logos Hope is OM International's largest ship. Its mission is to take books, education (AIDS prevention, for instance), and community outreach around the world. The crew and staff represent over 45 different countries and are all volunteers on the vessel. This was our first time visiting the Logos Hope, although we have previously boarded the Logos II and the Doulos ships in Australia and Africa.
At the bookshop you can buy books in English and other languages on a range of topics.
We bought some drinks at the International Cafe where Tirzah chatted to a crew member and drew her own picture of the Logos Hope.
Jemilla especially enjoyed the visual presentation called "The Journey of Life", which was based on the Biblical story of the Prodigal Son.
Maybe you would like to visit the Logos Hope in the near future? Here is the docking schedule for Asia.
