Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the live altering privilege of serving on the Africa Mercy for a year. When people ask me what I did, I reply, I watched miracles happen every day. Besides the endless miracles that happen in the hospital, there were endless miracles between the members of the crew. 400+ devoted people, from 38 nation cultures living and working together in a big white box; oh how beautiful it is to see. The miracles of the crew and the locals, exchanging, sharing, trying, supporting, and becoming one unit. I love, miss and still have my African friends in my life. Thank you Mercy Ships for changing the core of my life for the better! Please, if there is any way you can become involved with Mercy Ships-do it! You will come to know the greatest joy you have ever known, I promise.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Stop living in the past, embrace the new and different, reach farther, dream way out of the box now that you have $20m of new money, make the new ship a new ship use, promote and support the efforts of the West African Population as being important to the ship
