海上书船抵瑞典咸码头 5000种新书让槟书友选购

二零一一年八月二十六日


(槟城25日讯)海上书船望道号(Logos Hope)提前5天进港,5000种新书让槟城书友选购。这艘由基督教团体赞助通过书展和文化交流向全世界传送福音的书船,原计划在30日开抵槟城瑞典咸 码头,展开为期近1个月船上书展。不过,基于该邮轮出现一些机械问题,提前在25日进港,并提前向公众开放。

船长占姆斯说,该船在抵港后, 昨日才引进一批15万本新书,今天向公众开放,船上共有50万本书,5000个不同书目,并以低于市面的价格出售。他说,望道号和其前身在过去40年的海 上环游期间,登船的参观书展的人数逾4000万人次。船上售卖的书本主要以英文书为主,最低售价只有几令吉。除了书本也有一些纪念品。

望道 号除了以槟城作为这次来马的首个停泊港口外,过后也将开往巴生港口、古晋和沙巴。在槟城该艘邮轮将会在槟城逗留到下个月25日,开放时间为周二至周六,上 午10时至晚上10时,周日下午1时至晚上10时。周一休息。登船费为成人1令吉,12岁以下儿童免费,不过需要有成人陪同。

望道号在巴士港口的海上书展日期是9月29日至10月23日。古晋是10月28日到11月14日,沙巴亚庇则是11月18至12月4日。


船长员工来自不同国度 全不支薪

望道号从船长到员工都是来自不同国度的志愿工作者,他们不拿薪金,甚至需要自己支付船上的饮食费用。船上共有逾400名人员,分别来自55个国家,大马人有6到8人。占姆斯透露,下个月将会有80名大马年轻人上船,展开他们的船上志工生涯。

望道号是这个“福音船”计划的第4艘邮轮,最早的一艘船是道号(Logos)于1970年开始服务至1988年,第二艘为道号二(Logos II),第三艘为忠仆号(Doulos)做为福音船的服务年份是1977至2009年。现在服役的望道号则开始于2004年。

在望道号之前,忠仆号曾于1990年开始停泊在大马港口36次。不过做为望道号,此次是首次抵马。


李志杰:学习平日没机会学到经验

来自大马八打灵的船员李志杰(23岁)受访时说,他今年7月15日在斯里兰卡登船,在船上学习到很多平日没有机会学到的经验。

机械工程毕业的李志杰说,他只是参与望道号的2个月短期服务,将会在9月13日结束他在船上的工作和生活。被询及为什么不等望道号来马时才上船服务?李志杰说,这是由于他毕业已经有一段时间,希望能够更早参与望道号,所以就追到斯里兰卡上船。


陈清凉:传播知识及和谐理念

代表内政部副部长李志亮主持望道号书展开幕仪式的槟州妇女组主席陈清凉说,望道号的志愿者服务理念及在全世界传播知识及和谐的理念,在现今世界许多地方都有战乱的时候,更显得难能可贵。

她说,她在1984年曾要前往欧洲加入望道号前身忠仆号服务,不过当时却错过了机会。她寄望在退休后可以登上望道号,完成多年前的梦想。陈清凉除了给望道号带来临时提前进港的内政部批文,也带来交通部给予该邮轮港口税折扣的好消息。

她认为,望道号不同国籍的志愿者一起生活和工作,符合马来西亚提倡各族和睦相处的理念。不同国籍的人在一起,要有互相容忍还不足够,还需要学习接受彼此的不同之处。

Floating book fair restocks

By ANDREA FILMER



THERE is probably a book for you on Logos Hope and make sure you find it before you leave — those were the words of ship captain Tom Dyer who welcomed guests to the world’s largest floating book fair that is docked in Penang.

And with some half a million books on board, one would be happily inclined to believe him.

Logos Hope, which is run by non-profit organisation GBA Ships, opened its doors to the public yesterday — the first day of its month-long fair at the Swettenham Pier.

While some may remember the docking of the ship’s predecessor — the Doulos — in Penang in 2002, the Logos Hope is definitely the new and improved version of the floating book fair.

For one, ship managing director Gian Walser said, the area of the book fair is now air-conditioned, allowing visitors to browse the over 5,000 book titles in comfort.

The prices of the books are also very affordable, with many paperbacks going for RM8 to RM16.

There is a small Tamil, Chinese and Malayali section along with a music corner.

“It’s our aim to bring books to people at affordable prices.
“Being a non-profit organisation in which our crew and staff (who hail from some 50 different countries) are not being paid salaries makes it possible for us to offer books at very low prices,” Walser said, adding that the ship also had long-lasting relationships with several publishers.

Captain Dyer said Penang would be an important stop for the ship as about 100 of its 340 volunteers serving on board would be disembarking after finishing two-year stints.

“A group of about 80 will come on board here in Penang.
“Aside from that, we’re taken on two to three containers of books (that have been shipped in from places like the United States and United Kingdom) that are being processed for sale now,” Captain Dyer said, adding that each container weighed about 40 tonnes and contained some 50,000 books.

He also said the ship spent an average of 50 to 70 days at sea each year, making about 20 port calls around the world.
Former Penang Port Commission chairman Tan Cheng Liang, who represented Deputy Home Minister Datuk Lee Chee Leong to officiate the launching ceremony, said the Transport Ministry had agreed to waive a percentage of port duties for the ship.

“We hope this will help Logos Hope reach out to more people in fostering hope, love and peace,” Tan said.

During the ceremony, Tan cut an over 100kg cake in the shape of the ship.

The massive chocolate cake, which had a built in steam releaser, was given to Logos Hope by Swens Wong — a local cakemaker who had read about the ship’s good deeds.

Also seen helping out with the cake distribution was Matthew Lee, 23, who is one of over half a dozen Malaysian volunteers on board Logos Hope.

“I got on the ship in Sri Lanka in mid-June for a two-month stint.
“It was a bit of a culture shock for me at first (mingling with people from so many nationalities), but I quickly got used to it,” said the mechanical engineering graduate who works in the pantry.

Penang is Logos Hope’s first stop in the country.
From here, the ship will make her way to Port Klang, Kuching and finally, Kota Kinabalu before heading for Singapore.
The ship is open to the public at the Swettenham Pier from 10am to 10pm from Tuesdays to Saturdays and 1pm to 10pm on Sundays until Sept 25.

It closes on Mondays. Entry fees are RM1 per person. Children under 12 can enter for free but must be accompanied by an adult.

Logos Hope history


Logos Hope started life in Rendsburg, in the north of Germany, in 1973 as the car ferry Gustav Vasa with the company Lion Ferry AB. Maintaining the same route between Malmö (Sweden) and Travemünde (Germany) for 10 years, she was chartered out to many companies. Her route was later extended to include Rønne (Denmark) and Trelleborg (Sweden).

In April 1983 she was sold to the Faroese ferry company Smyril Line, and renamed Norröna. Sailing from Torshavn, the Faroese capital, to Lerwick (Shetland Islands), Bergen (Norway), Hantsholm (Denmark) and Seyðisfjörður (Iceland) each summer, she was often chartered in the winter to cover other operators’ overhaul schedules. When Smyril Line delivered a new Norröna in 2003, the old vessel became Norröna I, and was put up for sale. Following inspections, GBA Ships purchased her in March 2004.

After a further period of planning and fundraising, extensive renovations began in earnest in the Brodotrogir Shipyard in Trogir, Croatia in June 2005. A new deck was inserted into the double height vehicle deck to create space for what is now the Visitor Experience. An additional deck was added towards the aft to accommodate the school for children of families serving on board. A new galley was installed, and the bridge completely refurbished. Machinery in the engine room was overhauled. Accommodation sections and community spaces were rebuilt, and air-conditioning, sprinkler and electrical systems were renewed.

n November 2007 the ship left Croatia bound for Kiel, Germany, for an initial period of outfitting. On arrival crew and equipment were transferred from Logos II, the ship she would replace, and outfitting work took on new momentum with increased numbers on board and many volunteer project workers from North Germany and around the world coming to help.

The ship departed from Kiel in May 2008 heading for dry dock in Landskrona, Sweden, where a larger, more efficient generator was brought into the engine room through the side of the ship. Thereafter, Logos Hope was berthed in Køge, Denmark, for final outfitting. As well as completion of the accommodation areas and community spaces, work continued on the areas intended for the public, including the Logos Lounge conference room and the visitor experience deck. A massive combined effort saw all the surveys completed and certificates in place, and Logos Hope launched into service in February 2009.

Ships – Bringing Knowledge, Help and Hope


Our desire is to share the knowledge of God’s love and compassion with every visitor to our ships and with the wider community in every port.

Touching lives with knowledge, help and hope. For decades, OM’s ships have travelled the world supplying literature, helping people in need, motivating Christians, training young people and sharing the Good News of God’s love.

Today, the Ship Ministry is still touching lives—powerfully demonstrating God’s love through our international community living and serving together onboard Logos Hope.


Knowledge

Known for their floating book fairs, the ships have made over 1,400 port visits in more than 160 nations, welcoming over 42 million people onboard. Visitors can select from over 5,000 book titles, covering a wide range of subjects and available at a fraction of their value. Grants of books to schools, libraries, colleges, churches and universities in developing countries have made a positive impact.


Help

Those caught in the grip of poverty often lack basic education and healthcare. OM Ships workers have undertaken a wide range of relief projects worldwide. Their efforts include constructing orphanages, building shelters for victims of natural disasters and distributing medical aid, food and supplies.


Hope

In a world of uncertainty, true hope is only possible by engaging in a personal relationship with God. In every port, volunteer crew members share this message of hope with those they meet.
Having a purpose in life also brings hope. Through the on-board training programmes, we offer an ideal environment for crew members to discover and cultivate their gifts. For many, it’s a significant step towards a life-time of serving God.
