PHILADELPHIA IS THE 2 ND LARGES CITY ON THE EAST COAST
GHANA IN WESTERN AFRICA THE EQUATOR IS LOCATED AT ABOT THE TOP OF THE FLAG. SO WHAT DO YOU THINK THE WEATHER IS LIKE IN GHANA?
PRETTY BIG BOAT DONT YOU THINK WHETHER THEY ARE LOADING OR UNLOADING THIS IS A BIG SHIP. COMPARE IT TO THE CAR AND THE TRACTOR TRAILER!!
I AM AMAZED AT THE SIZE OF THESE SHIPS. LOOK AT THE TRACTOR TRAILERS ON THE BRIDGE AND COMPARE TO THE SHIPS, THEY ARE HUGE!! AND THE SHIP, THE STEEL SHIP, FULL OF CARGO, FLOATS!!!!!
A CONTAINER SHIP AT SEA. THE TOP DECK IS FULL AND I WOULD EXPECT THERE IS A LOT OF CARGO BELOW DECK AS WELL.
OK. A LITTLE QUIZ NOW WHEN A SEAMAN SAYS TO SQUARE AWAY WHAT DOES HE MEAN?
TO GET THINGS IN ORDER, OR COMPLETE A JOB. WHAT IS IT CALLED WHEN A SEAMAN PUTS AWAY HIS GEAR?
HE HAS STOWED IT AWAY. ONCE HIS BUNK SQUARED AWAY AND HIS GEAR IS STOWED, WHAT DOES HE CALL HIS AREA?
SHIP SHAPE! AND LAST…..WHAT IS THIS WEEKS MISSIONARYS NAME, WHERE WAS HE BORN AND WHERE DOES HE SERVE?
OK…..SO, WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP GEORGE WITH HIS MISSION? HOW CAN YOU DO YOUR PART? CAN YOU GO TO PHILADELPHIA AND CARRY COATS AND BLANKETS? WELL, YOU COULD BUT ITS NOT LIKELY IS IT? WHAT CAN YOU DO FROM HERE, OR THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME? JERZY GEORGE RATZ, BORN IN POLAND AND SERVES AT THE SEAFARERS CENTER IN PHILADELPHIA, PA.
HOPEFULLY SOMEONE THOUGHT OF PRAY. AND WHAT COULD WE PRAY FOR?:
JUST THINK OF SOME OF THE THINGS WEVE TALKED ABOUT. WE CAN PRAY: 1.THAT THE SHIPS CAPTAINS GUIDE THE SHIPS SAFELY ESPECIALLY IN STORMY WEATHER 2.THAT THE SEAMEN HAVE WHAT THEY NEED, NO MATTER WHAT THE WEATHER 3.THAT GEORGE HAS ENOUGH BIBLES IN THE RIGHT LANGUAGES TO GIVE TO THE SEAMEN 4.THAT THE SEAFARERS WILL BECOME BELIEVERS FOR THE SEAFARERS FAMILIES BACK HOME.
ON MISSION BIBLE VERSES Stop and consider Gods wonders. Job 37:14 The sea is His; He made it. His hands formed the dry land. Psalm 95:5
THINK ABOUT AND PRAY FOR THE SEAFARERS, THEIR FAMILIES AND THE MISSIONARIES THIS WEEK.
