An Offshore Injury

A friend of ours worked for 15 years now as an overseas worker in a sea vessel carrying that precious oil to the Middle East. He’s been always away for 10 months every year. We know that it’s not a easy job working abroad.

An incident happened during one of their docking schedule in the Middle East. One of the ship’s crew met an Offshore Injury when hit by a speeding motorbike. The good news was that he was completely cared by the company he’s working and all hospitals bills were taken care of by an insurance company. Being a seaman is not easy.. it really needs the grace of God to endure all the temptation and challenges in life.
