The daughter of two of our parishioners works with the charity Mercy Ships. Each week she forwards a diary of how her week has been.
Mercy Ships are a team of nurses, doctors, surgeons, and other crew members from all over the world, donating our time to help on board the world’s largest non-governmental floating hospital, sailing directly to some of the world’s poorest people to deliver life-saving medical care and provide safe, state-of-the-art facilities in which to treat them.
