SACC supports Port of Hope Ministries
Pastor Carl was honored to join Chaplain Phil Dufrene on the CAP JACKSON cargo ship on June 17, '16. Chaplain Phil is the director of Port of Hope Ministries based in Sumas. Port of Hope sends chaplains to cargo ships in several ports around the world including the Fraser-Surrey Docks. The 23 member crew on the CAP JACKSON is from the South Pacific Nation of Kirbati (worldatlas.com/webimage/countrys/oceania/ki.htm). The photos offer a glimpse of chaplaincy work on the cargo ships. The CAP JACKSON is on a route that will bring the ship back to the Fraser-Surrey Docks every 11 weeks. Chaplain Phil watches the ship as it gets closer to port and makes his plans to see the guys and get to know them. In one of the photos, Chaplain Phil is presenting a New Testament to one of the crew members in the Kibati language (he printed it with a tool from google). Pray for the SeaFarers of the Seas who make great sacrifice to be apart from their families in order to provide a better life. Pray for the love of Christ to bring them peace.

This was a community event sponsored by the Whatcom County Library. NOTE: this video is the RAW FOOTAGE of the presentation. An edited version is being produced that will have more photographs and it will be much shorter. This whole video is about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The first third is a formal presentation. The last part is interaction with questions, answers, stories and songs. Enjoy.
