OM has celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the Ship Ministry. The first vessel, Logos, was purchased on 15 October 1970, and launched into ministry on 18 February 1971. Throughout 2021 we shared some of our most treasured memories from these 50 years of witnessing God at work through these humble vessels.
