My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA
In the summer of 2000, I knew that I wanted to obey God's call to help others know about His love for them. God loves all people and it breaks his heart to see the poverty and suffering in the world. He uses ordinary people to make an extraordinary difference in their lives. Mercy Ships provides a perfect place to reach these impoverished and hurting people. I had the chance to be the hands and feet of Jesus - to so many while serving with this ministry. The ships are floating hospitals - and I was not in the medical field. But like any hospital or ship - it requires people with many different abilities to help the ministry to function and to allow the medical personal to truly focus on helping those in medical need. I worked in administration and in the IT department while onboard the ship. I also met my future husband on the ship and we've now been married 9 years and have two beautiful daughters. We are looking forward to going back to Mercy Ships soon - to serve full time for many years to come.
