From July 29 to August 24, 2009, MV Doulos opens its door at the Khlong Toei Port, Bangkok, for interested people to visit its book store and get in touch with its volunteers to exchange cultures and experiences.

This is the fifth visit to Thailand. The mission of the ship is to bring knowledge, help and hope to every human being on earth. Moreover, the ship can become an outside classroom for its member crews to learn how to live and work together under cultural differences.

Great post. The kids on the ship are simply amazing. I volunteered in the Galley for three days. I never thought working in a kitchen would be so fun.
