AOS Featured Stories: A Faith Filled Life on the Sea
Amy and Andy Middleton, a husband and wife team, are both volunteers of Apostleship of the Sea (AOS) Baltimore since 2009. After completing the Houston maritime ministry training program, a two week ecumenical program in February of 2009, they returned to AOS Baltimore to put their training into good use. Amy is administrative director while Andy is operations director of the Stella Maris International Seafarers’ (AOS) Center which is located in Dundalk, Md. Rev. Msgr. John L. FitzGerald is AOS chaplain and executive director of the Center .
Hebrews 13:2 says “Do not neglect hospitality, for through it some have unknowingly entertained angels”.
Since joining the AOS ministry I have had the opportunity to visit with international seafarers and share time with them talking about their families and their time at sea. I have even had the most blessed opportunity to reunite family members who traveled far along the seas and from other states just to see each other here in the Port of Baltimore. When I welcome others, I welcome Jesus and share his love with them through this hospitality ministry. -Amy
