OM Ships International

Update - 20 May 2020 - We regret to announce that Logos Hope’s planned visit to ports around Europe will not go ahead.

The ship’s schedule has been impacted by restrictions in several countries we had hoped to visit. At this time, our priority continues to adhere to and support all necessary measures to limit the spread of coronavirus.

We are hugely disappointed and acknowledge the work of many partners in this venture, but in these changing times, our trust is in our unchanging God. We believe He is very much at work to accomplish His purposes in Europe. It is still our desire to return to that continent with Logos Hope at some future stage.

For now, we expect the ship to remain in the Caribbean region. We appreciate your prayers as we seek future direction for ministry opportunities in the months ahead.

Thank you for your support.

News Release - 18 March 2020 - OM Ships' Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic

OM’s Ship Ministry has responded to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic by closing Logos Hope to the public. The ship is docked in Kingston, Jamaica, while next steps are being decided.

A response team has been put in place to monitor developments and make decisions in the best interests of the community on board and in accordance with the advice of all relevant authorities.

At this stage, it is expected that the ship will remain in the Caribbean region for the next three months; not crossing the Atlantic as planned for annual maintenance in the Canary Islands. Teams from the ship which were due to travel overseas during that time have also had to be cancelled. Work is ongoing to determine how the vessel’s schedule will alter over these coming months.

One knock-on effect is that Logos Hope's planned calls in Ireland and the Faroe Islands are being postponed. It is hoped that the port visits after that on the schedule can be carried out as planned, and this will become clearer in due course.

“We are indeed in unprecedented times,” said OM Ships CEO, Seelan Govender. “We have paused our usual ministry model and will spend time training and equipping our crew for future opportunities. Please continue to pray for the situation around the world.”

The port schedule will be updated once plans are in place, and further updates will be provided on a regular basis. OM encourages you to join in a day of prayer and fasting for the situation around the world on Thursday 26 March.

When mission isn't what you expected

“Before I came to the ship, I knew my purpose would be to serve God with strangers who might eventually become my family. I knew I would have to come out of my comfort zone, so I held on to the principle of being flexible, adaptable and teachable and I knew that if I had these things, I would survive ship life.”

Twenty-one-year-old Ezra William (East Asia) works in the marine operations department on board Logos Hope. He joined the ship in Montego Bay, Jamaica, two months ago; excited and ready to share knowledge, help and hope. He had already experienced challenges on his journey to even get up the gangway:
