The Shipping Industry

How often do you think about where everyday things come from -- or how they got here?

  • The coffee for your mug?

Over 90% of world trade is shipped by sea, but it happens in the background, invisible to most of us while we go about our daily lives.

When COVID  led to shortages across the country, we learning just how important timely shipping is for keeping store shelves stocked. Pictures of ships clogging up ports in California, not to mention the ship stuck in the Suez Canal, drove home how much we depend on the ships to bring us goods from around the world.

But many of us still didn't think about the seafarers. Many were unable to leave their ships for months, stranded only a short distance from the shore but not allowed to disembark. This was just one more challenge for a job fraught with danger, including piracy, shipwreck and abandonment. 

That's why Mission to Seafarers is here: to provide emotional and spiritual support. To meet practical needs when possible. To make sure seafarers know that they are NOT forgotten
