Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered on 3 of the mercy Ships in a variety of positions over a period of nearly 10 years. It has been my privilege to serve for 3 or 4 months at a time in hospitality, housekeeping,surgical sterilizer and sales. We are given the opportunity to work off ship, in a number of places. I have been in many orphanages, prison in Benin, villages and hospitals, including a leper colony.
Mercy Ships has a Christian foundation and we are given many opportunities to exhibit our faith , both verbally and through example. As a hospital ship providing free medical services to the poorest of the poor in our world, we see the worst deformities corrected and the lowest spirits raised. We are blessed to be able to give of ourselves to those so needy and worthy. However, most often, an equal, if not a greater, share of blessings comes to those of us who serve.
