Working in a non-profit is a joy in that it provides the opportunity to bring joy to the lives of others in our case the seafarers.
It is also a 'joy', referencing the words of the hymn ' Joy to the World' because the seafarers come from all over the world, every corner and island.
The joy of Christmas , that God is with us, we share in the giving of gifts made possible by the generosity of others in providing the items that go in the gift bags or the money to purchase them.
As I share here some pictures I want to offer my gratitude to those churches, groups and individuals for the kindness shown to the seafarers through donations to our Christmas at Sea Appeal 2022 and in general.
For those who have had to work and be away from loved ones you have sent the message that you appreciate them, that they are not alone and that you recognize their sacrifice.
May 2023 be a year in which we each bring joy to one another in Jesus name.
