During our first term in Tanzania--about 14 years ago--we had our first introduction to this ship's predecessor. So we were really excited to discover that it was coming again.
We went to the port to visit the ship on Sunday afternoon, trying to avoid weekday traffic, but as a result, about half of Dar es Salaam had the same idea. The bookstore and cafe were crammed with shoulder-to-shoulder people, which would bring out the claustrophobia in anyone. But it was also really cool to see so many people from so many backgrounds and religions enjoying the bookstore.
If you are at a point in life where you can take off a year or two, consider the awesome opportunity of joining the Logos Hope. If you are the parent of an older teen, there are also two-month programs available. Sail to dozens of countries and do ministry? Live on a ship with 400 Christians from around the world? Sounds pretty amazing to me.
