Joe, Arnie, and myself visited the crew on Christmas Day. We were given a very warm greeting. The three of us took turns presenting the Good News in a 45 minute symposium. All appreciate our presentation. Interestedly, after giving a witness to the crew, we started down the gangway and were intercepted by Home Land Security. They ordered us to go back up the gangway to the ship for an interview. They wanted to know why we were here. The Captain immediately told them, ‘I have invited them aboard’.
The officer taking the lead asked for our TWIC cards. He checked our faces with the picture I.D.. He asked a few question directed towards each of us. After about 5 minutes he said, ‘You are doing a good work, keep it up”! Once we were in our vehicle we were so excited, that a favorable witness was given, even to Home Land Security. The officers know the fine work Jehovah’s Witnesses do for the seamen.
