The Logos Hope docked in St. Vincent on Monday, July 27th, and opened its doors to the general public last Tuesday, July 28th.

On Tuesday, Leader on board the Logos Hope and Director of Partner Ministries Randy Grebe thanked the various local sponsors for making the trip to St. Vincent and the Grenadines possible.

Commenting, Grebe said: “as we move from country to country, we depend on local businesses and persons to help us in various ways; some help us with actual physical things like food and water, while others help us do practical things on board.” Areas of assistance given by businesses include the financing the cost of the berth, the transportation of the crew and the insuring of the six vehicles that the Logos Hope sometimes use.

Grebe further commented: “it’s very broad because if you think of a little floating city coming to your shores and all the needs of that city there is actually quite a list and we are grateful for all the help”.

Marketing Executive at Digicel Edmund Joachim commented: “we at Digicel always aim to aid in the development and growth of literacy and education; it is truly an honor to be a part of something monumental and historic within St.Vincent and the Grenadines”.

Given recognition for their assistance were Digicel, Karib Cable, Bickles, Randy’s Supermarket, the Central Water and Sewage Authority (CWSA) and Courts. Members of the Logos Hope Ministry are expected to visit local Summer camps, homes for the elderly and other places. They leave St.Vincent and the Grenadines on August 11th. The ship’s Captain is Dirk Colenbrander of the Netherlands.
