As I arrive home just as the Maersk Pembroke passes my house I reflect on the day and how hectic it has been. The few days around Christmas are always busy and today was no exception. Lots of gifts given out and the reward is seeing the thrill on the faces of the Chinese seafarers when they see there is one for each crew member. The arrival of a Ukrainian seafarer with a large real Christmas tree that he has lugged on the bus but cannot get it into the terminal.Then the mad dash to try and obtain a goat at 4pm with me onboard ship and Nancy our volunteer doing a great job of phoning around. No goat was to be found but Nancy called to say Costco had whole lambs. A big laugh at Costco when the cashier was frustrated because she couldn't remember the code for the lamb and ended up shouting much louder than she intended that she needed a code on the "body", the seafarers thought it was hilarious whilst I stood with my hand over my clergy collar forgetting that I had Chaplain in large letters across the back of my coat. One guy to the shopping centre from the Maersk to buy something special for his wife, against the clock due to a very short shore leave. Lots of visitors that I did not see as I was on the run but they were welcomed by Susan, Norman and Nancy. Thanks this evening to Sherree and Bruno. Poor Bruno was left holding the fort whilst Sherree and I ran ragged. It was a very long day but was what seafarer's ministry is all about. Please think of all the seafarers that are away from their families toiling to bring Christmas gifts to out shores. ... See MoreSee Less
