Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I thought I wasn't Christian or Religious enough to work with Mercy Ships, so I would sit there and stare at this job posting for weeks not knowing that my life would change. I knew I needed a change in my life and my job, but I didn't know what. I had applied for so many jobs and got nothing, not a peep, so I applied with Mercy Ships. I was desperate. I had already given my notice and I was scrambling to find another source of income. At first getting the Job was it just a job.. but, all of 2 days later I'm going through patient stories and I just kept reading and reading some more.. It's like I couldn't stop, my eyes would fill up with tears and my heart would sink. I went home and hugged my babies so tight and thanked God for them both. Receiving the job here at Mercy Ships I realized that God had a plan for me. A bigger plan than any corporate ladder I could climb. I can't wait to wake up every morning and come to work. Being in the marketing department I get the honor of seeing the Africa Mercy Patients before pictures and stories and their after pictures and stories. I have caught myself crying at my desk and thinking what if that was my 2 or 6 year old baby boys. Mercy Ships is not just my place of employment, it has become my home, my family and MY LIFE. I am amazed everyday how God calls thousands of people together from all over the world with different languages, different cultures and different backgrounds.. how he brings us all together to help the medical, emotional, life-changing needs of others. To a country that has been forgotten by so many. It is my pleasure to say I work for Mercy Ships

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

have 100 more ships to help all over the world.
