Share in this time of blessing others as God’s servants are pampered and encouraged while they serve abroad. We will enjoy excellent Bible-based teachings and fellowship with other on-board believers.

Living Passages — we’re taking the gospel seriously — shouting the Gospel with our lives — praying that we transform some part of the lives of those we serve. We believe that fighting poverty also fights slavery.
