ICMA members have begun to participate by sending us photographs of seafarers plying their trade. This photo is from Florin Garbea, Director of ICMA member LIFE International Ministries in Constantza, Rumania. Florin himself visits ships and runs the local seafarers’ centre. LIFE International will host this year’s ICMA Annual General Meeting in Bucharest.
This smiling seafarer affirms the positive attitude of seafarers who work to keep ships moving. Seafarers are professionals. Seafarers are happy at doing their jobs. Seafarers are a vital workforce. Seafarers are real human beings.
Those pictures were taken in Constantza port this year, 2013, and remind us of the sacrifices that the seafarers make for all of us. May God bless all seafarers around the world, their families and all the seafarers’ centres dedicated to the benefit of those who work on board.
The International Christian Maritime Association’s members continue to serve seafarers in every way we can.
