I visited Doulos last Sunday. It is the eldest ship (still operating) in the world, which is built in 1914, just 2 years younger that the Titanic, and will retire in 2010. Doulos is now a ship visiting the world, with the mission of spreading Gospel of Jesus. This is supposed the last time for Doulos to visit Hong Kong. It is parked at the Ocean Terminal, Tsim Sha Tsui till 7th October.

It is quite special for Doulos since the 300 members on the ship are come from all over the world, and they are all volunteers. They also need to pay for their daily life on the ship. However, this is a ship for Gospel, so it is worth for them, moreover, they can earn very valuable experience on the journey, with friend form different countries.

Doulos is also the biggest book fair in the sea, they sell book and earn for the running cose of the ship. The books are mainly donated from different sources.

I met Ray on the ship, he came from Taiwan and is one of the senior volunteer there, and he shows me the cabin, meeting room and his bed room. This is quite a special experience, not only joining sea book fair, but also visiting a 90 year old ship. This trip is very interesting.
