If I could leave my work/everything and be totally dedicated to one great and amazing charity for God’s glory, then it will have to be Mercy Ships. This group of self-paying volunteers serves as a global charity that has operated hospital ships in developing nations since 1978. They are committed to bringing hope and healing to the forgotten poor by mobilizing people and resources worldwide – serving all people of the world without regard for race or religion.
To the best of my knowledge, everyone at Mercy Ships – surgeons, nurses, medical personnel, engineers, cooks, nurses, teachers, shipping experts, etc – is a volunteer and they even pay on their own to serve. A complete demonstration of compassion in action. They are vessels of God’s HOPE, LOVE, and FAITHFULNESS. (In fact, a very good friend, Paula Kirby, worked with them for years and proved to be a wonderful witness of God’s goodness.)
Just take a look at this BEFORE-AND-AFTER example of their incredible, life-changing and just inspiring work below. Moving!
