A new face in the guest house team newsnews freiwilliger 19 20

Every year in September our team changes. Then a new volunteer starts his ministry - to return to Germany after 12 months of many new experiences and begin his studies. We are grateful that every year a young person is willing to cooperate with us.

Hans Lennard Tiertz has just finished his first weeks with us. He will be present at the reception of the guesthouse as well as on board the ships.

Arrived! Congratulations!

Michael Thiedmann was born in Lichtenfels and grew up on the Upper Main. After his confirmation, Thiedmann spent ten years in the evangelical work with children and young people. This gave rise to the desire to become a pastor. At first his way to Amsterdam led him to volunteer at the German Seamen's Mission. He then studied religious education and church education in Nuremberg. After two years he studied theology in Berlin, Munich and Neuendettelsau.

This is what Santa Claus is doing through the summer!21 06 11

The question of Santa Claus in the summer always concerned some people. Answers were available - they fill books.

We bring sailors to Christmas gifts and are therefore their "Santa Claus". And to us, every year at the beautiful summer time, the question arises: What will we do this year as a gift for seafarers who are Christmas on sea? They can not use phone cards there - so we need something different. We ask colleagues - look what others have done in previous years. Browse in catalogs. It is not easy to start planning christmas things with a summer cocktail. And quite honestly, the right thing has not crossed our mind yet. Do you have an idea?
