Newest ministry boat headed for final outfitting

By November 19, 2007

Germany (OMI/MNN) — Logos Hope, Operation
newest vessel, departed from the shipyard in Trogir,
Croatia after completing a two-year conversion project.

The vessel is heading to Kiel, Germany
for final outfitting before being launched into service. It is expected to arrive in port this coming Saturday, Nov 24.

Individuals, churches, trusts and
other community groups have so far donated over €23,000,000 (Euros) to help
renovate Logos Hope.

This last project stop is expected to take six months and
covers the last of the finish work.  Work will include the
final touches on the Visitor Experience, onboard community facilities and other
areas where the visiting public will be hosted in the future.

A further boost in donations is also
needed to finish this final stage of preparation and launch the vessel into
service. Once launched, Logos Hope will transport vital literature resources,
aid supplies and an all-volunteer crew committed to serving port communities
around the world.

"The arrival of Logos Hope in Kiel
is a great milestone toward the completion of the project. We look back with
thankfulness to see the Lord's mercy and faithfulness. People, finance, plans
and prayers have come together to make this day a reality. And we look forward
with confidence that the Lord will continue to lead us. We can see the moment
approaching when the ship will begin active service," said Logos Hope Project
Director Lloyd Nicholas, Australia.
