Visit to PE

I have just returned from a few days in Port Elizabeth.  It was great to meet the staff from Byblia as well as the chaplain from CSO.   The Byblia centre is a place from which all these chaplains and ship visitors work from.  I enjoyed ship visiting with both Martin the Byblia chaplain and Keith Bentley the MTS ship visitor.

A Chinese seafarer arrived at the centre on Tuesday afternoon.  His wife had just had a baby boy who was only a 2 weeks old.  He had obviously not seen his little boy but was able to get on the internet and chat to his wife and see his new little baby.  This is what we as folk who are involved in visiting ships and running centres are able to do for seafarers.  I think this is the gospel in action and part of what Christ has called us to do.
