May is going to be a very special time for San Diego. Two major Christian events will take place simultaneously, giving the Gospel a significant profile.
On May 9, the Operation Mobilization ship LOGOS II arrives at Broadway Pier with its crew of 200 missionaries from 50 nations. The ship will offer numerous programs and opportunities for involvement through May 26. On that same weekend the ship arrives, Billy Graham‚s four-day Mission San Diego event begins.
Although the two events were planned independently, they are a powerful combination, giving San Diego’s Christian community exciting ways to experience some of the heartbeat and flavor of international missions
and also introduce friends to the message of Jesus. Operation Mobilization and the crew of LOGOS II are excited about linking with the Billy Graham outreach. Many of the ship‚s crew members will serve as counselors at the event, assisting those who respond to the messages. In the past, Mr. Graham has spoken in support of the OM Ships ministry. Interestingly, it was at a Billy Graham event in the 1950s that OM‚s founder, George Verwer, came to faith in Christ.Bringing these two ministries together has the potential for great impact on San Diego.
LOGOS II is returning to San Diego to reconnect with churches and partners last seen on its 1997 visit, and to launch OM‚s Next Ship Project which will replace the LOGOS II with a larger vessel allowing greater ministry. The staff also hopes the visit will mobilize others to explore serving with OM. Throughout the upcoming visit there will be numerous opportunities to attend programs and seminars, tour the ship, shop in the extensive book fair onboard, and meet Christians from around the world.
The program brochure contains more details and is available by calling (858) 874-8112.
In addition to the scheduled program, the book fair will be open daily, and tours of the ship will be offered by advance reservation.
