Through Christian friendship and hospitality, as well as letters and correspondence Bible studies, lives are being changed and many have been saved.
"Reaching seafarers is strategic, but building a network of evangelizers, disciplers and even seafarer congregations in the world's ports could be even more so! May this visionary book help to encourage this and so contribute significianly to world evangelization." Patrick Johnston

Martin Otto inspired us to start a work among seafarers in the port of Bremerhaven. We know him and his family from our time in Hamburg, where he is a missionary in the port.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer - The Cost of Discipleship

Description: The Cost of Discipleship compels the reader to face himself and God in any situation. Bonhoffer speaks of "Cheap Grace", grace from preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, communion without confession. "Cheap Grace" is grace without discipleship. "Costly Grace" is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the gift which must be asked for, the door at which a man must knock. "It's costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life."
