Review for Mercy Ships Operations, Lindale, TX, USA
Our family of four was able to serve six summers (so far!) aboard the Anastasis and the Africa Mercy. We served in Europe, South Africa, Liberia, Benin, Sierra Leone, and Togo as leaders of the Academy's Summer Program. Our job enabled us to work with the ship children during the day, in daily activities with them as well as bringing the children to see the patients on the ward and at Hope Centre. As a family, we can not say enough good things about Mercy Ships. Each time of service was better than the time before. Imagine seeing the first patient arrive in Liberia for surgery on the Africa Mercy . . . imagine your children asking you each time you visit an orphanage or the ward if we could please adopt again . . . imagine see a glimpse of heaven on earth as people from every tribe and nation gather together to worship our God . . . imagine seeing the lame walk, the blind see, and those without hope receive hope. These were amazing times for our family and we all look forward to the day we can return to the ship and serve again!
