It is with deep sadness that we announce that Jennifer Johnson, one of our MCS board members, passed away on July 21, 2020. She struggled with illness for a long time but is now whole again and with her Lord and Savior in heaven. Her obituary can be found here. Please remember her family in your prayers.
The Mission to Chinese Seamen Board met on January 21st for prayer, meditation, and discussion of current funding. Rev. Lee puts together ditty bags for the seamen to be distributed around Christmas time and it was suggested that in addition to scarfs, gloves etc that a Christian track be included.
Rev. Lee was able to visit, minister to, and help seafarers at Gloucester, Penn, Packer Avenue, Marcus Hook, and Monroe terminals. Cargo ships include container, fruit, oil, and car carriers with seafarers from India, Sri Lanka, Germany, and the Philippines.[table id=1 /]
April 22, 2017 – About 35 supporters of the mission attended our Spring Banquet celebrating 50 years of God’s work with seafarers. Our President, Hillary McLaughlin led the program with Rev. Casey Thompson giving the blessing and Rev. Lee and Rev. K.P. Jen giving inspirational presentations. We all enjoyed a delicious Chinese dinner followed by dessert sweets provided by Hill family members!
