Friday, April 4 – Day 5

IMG_4866We checked out of our hotel in Athens at 9 a.m.  Driving just 30 minutes, we arrived at Pireaus, Athens port that dates back 5,000 years and Europe’s third largest harbor, where we will board the ship run by the Olympian – Louis Cruise Line.  After going through the usual security and baggage procedures, we boarded the ship around 10 a.m.  Upon boarding, we completed the required safety procedures.

IMG_4901Following lunch, we had a brief group meeting, with worship and devotion.  We considered the amazing perseverance and mission of Paul despite all the difficulties he faced during his 3 mission journeys.  We focused upon 2 Corinthians 12:9 – “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”  The rest of the afternoon was at leisure on the boat.

IMG_4935Around 5:30 we arrived at our first port of the cruise, the island of Myconos.  We enjoyed a few hours of exploring part of this beautiful Greek island known for its windmills.  We watched the sun set on the Aegean!  We boarded back on the ship for a late dinner.  What a wonderful day this was!

Saturday, Aprll 5 – Day 6

 We plan to port at Kusadasi, Turkey, and visit Ephesus.  We will then re-board the ship and sail to the Island of Patmos.
