Every day trawlers of varying size head off to sea from the fishing ports around the coast of the UK. For many years the Fishermen’s Mission has provided practical and spiritual support to the men and women who skipper and crew these boats and their families. The Gideons International in the British Isles is now pleased to be able to support the work of the Fishermen’s Mission by providing them with Testaments with their own emblem on the cover.
The first of these Testaments were handed over to David Dickens the Chief Executive of the Fishermen’s Mission and Supt. Steve Murray, Mission Officer for the port of Peterhead on 12 August. Following the presentation at the Mission Centre, Supt. Steve Murray, David Andrew Zone 1 Trustee and Tony Lovering, Scripture Manager went aboard the Favonius to present Testaments to the crew. This trawler fishes out of Peterhead and heads out into the North Sea for around 8 days at a time. Please pray that as the men and women of the Fishermen’s Mission share these Testaments with those involved in the fishing industry over the coming months that they will be willingly accepted and read.
