After leaving Seattle, we had a straight three days at sea while we sailed to Kodiak, Alaska. Since we had already explored every inch of the ship, and since no shows were lined up till the very end of those three days, it wasn’t a surprise when boredom set in.
How did Quinn and Emily combat this boredom? They set off to sit in every chair or couch on the ship!
Sadly, the task was deemed impossible, and they gave up. But as you can see they made a pretty good dent in all the chairs and couches the ship had.
Most of the days out at sea were rather gray or stormy,
but when it was nice dance practice was held out on the top deck!
It was a bit too windy though (and we didn’t want Abigail being blown away).
We were honored when the crew asked us to participate in their weekly church service. We all met in a little room where we played a few songs with Mark (the usual music leader of the group), and listened to a wonderful message by the ship chaplain Pat.
It felt so good to be able to worship the Lord with this group of people (mostly from the Philippines and Indonesia).
Afterwards, we were all met by warm handshakes and hugs from everyone who came, saying thank you and telling us how wonderful it was to meet us. They even asked to take a group photo with us, to which we were happy to be a part of:
The Spirt of the Lord was truly felt in that small gathering, as it says in Matthew 18:20-
“For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
