Logos Hope 2011 Tour | Kota Kinabalu

Greeting fellow readers,

Logos Hope is now at Kota Kinabalu Port and they will be here until 11 dec so don't miss the chance visiting them. Basically they got tones of books from around the world and nevertheless they are here bring fruitful hope to people that are in need in Sabah.

How to get there.
Currently they are porting at Kota Kinabalu Immigration harbour and you need to get into a free shutter bus ride to get from the main gate to the ship because it is really far away. Alot of my coursemate got confuse between Jesselton port and kota kinabalu Port. They are two different place but it is side by side and you need to check them out yourself at google map. 

You can refer to this previous post i made for more information on their opening hour and dates of opening.

Logos Hope bring 3 main mission.

Bringing knowledge, help and hope to the people of the world

 Bringing Knowledge 
Over 40 million people in 158 different countries have walked up the Ships gangway to visit one of our ships' floating book fairs. For many, it is their first ever opportunity to purchase good quality literature at a fraction of its retail value. Many people without the means to study have learnt vital skills and been able to enhance their lives through a purchase from over 6,000 available titles, including books for studies, professional and career interests, individual development and personal growth. Cultural variety abounds with over 40 nations meeting on board. For visitors, opportunities to meet crew provide insights into the wider world, while interactive programmes offer fresh perspectives on living in a multi-cultural society. For volunteer crew, time on board the ships provides a chance to experience countries and cultures for themselves, as well as opportunities to learn valuable skills for the future. 

Bringing Help 
Sailing from port to port, crew experience the needs of the world first-hand. Being in a position to help – whether by donating supplies, building a house, or offering a listening ear – is both a privilege and a responsibility. The ships seek to bring aid and relief in situations of particular need as a practical demonstration of God’s love for mankind. Coupled with their promotion of education, this approach aims not only to alleviate immediate needs, but also to bring long-term change in each community.  

Bringing Hope
 Every person has a inbuilt need for hope and purpose in life. Our volunteer crew seeks to bring new hope by their service on board as a community focused on the needs of others. They offer hope through their actions and their interaction with others. Every crewmember has a story to tell of a transformation in their personal life that has given them hope and purpose.

That is what we were brief about by our host and i believe everybody deserve a chance or two in their life.
Here are some of the picture i took the other night when i was there. For your information, do you know the huge ship that appear in the bible Noah's Ark? Well, surprisingly Logos Hope is few feet larger than Noah's ark. It's just that Logos Hops is carrying 400 plus people and Naoh's Ark is filled with animals.

The host of the night
We were tour around by a super friendly host and fyi he is from Penang and he has been on board for more than 3 months if i can recall correctly.

Crazy captain
This is the first thing you will notice the moment you enter the ship

Captain Deck
Because we were on special tour, we get to come all the way up to captain deck but we're not allow to touch any of their equipment. 

The first captain of Logos

Captain Hayden 
A captain task is not easy and they have to stay awake some times more than 24 hours on docking or leaving day. 

Hall of fame
This is where all the previous ship and current ship picture are store.

Like a huge family, there are alot of different nationality people staying on board.

This is the main reason i'm here. The Chocolate Ice Cream. You can find it at their International cafe open for all visitor.

Besides the ice cream, you can also go for other drinks.

Rm4 ice cream + Rm2 lemon juice = satisfaction.

Book fair hall

Remember to check the previous post i made because there are information about Logos Hope opening hour. Overall, the Logos Hope is a newer and better ship than Doulos II and you can find tones of books and it is a good place to hangout in their cafe as well. Just imagine it, how often do you get to say " Hey do you wanna go yam cha on the ship?" maybe 2 years once. ;) By the way, I didn't get any sea sick when i was on board so don't worry about the sea sick problem.
