Our New Outreach Ministry
Council approved congregational support of Mercy Ships at their December, 2019 meeting. Mercy Ships is now part of our community ministry team and along with our missionaries in Mexico City and RAISE Jamaica, Mercy Ships is included in our global outreach. Mercy Ships is an international Christian ministry bringing hope and healing to
the forgotten poor of the world. By bringing hospital ships to various poor countries, Mercy Ships provides free surgical and dental care to people who desperately need the care. Mercy Ships also trains surgeons, nurses and sterile technicians in these countries so healthcare can improve. Mercy Ships also provides palliative care and agricultural training.
Mercy Ships has a volunteer crew and we hope members of Faith Lutheran Church will participate in a medical mission trip. We will announce opportunities for parishioners to serve by giving, volunteering and praying. Contact Lynda Primka for more information about Mercy Ships.
“The Surgery Ship”, a documentary about the Africa Mercy is now available on Amazon Prime. The documentary was done by Mercy Ships Australian group and is about an hour long.
