Ships of Mercy: The Remarkable Fleet Bringing Hope to the World's Forgotten Poor Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The extraordinary and true story of the founding of Mercy Ships, floating hospitals that travel the globe transforming faces - and lives.

Synopsis:

Don Stephens, a Colorado farm boy, is certainly an unlikely hero. And turning a decrepit ocean liner into a floating hospital seems improbable at best. And yet that is exactly what happened twenty-five years ago. Because of the efforts of Stephens, his fleet of ships, and his navy of volunteers, thousands around the world have experienced healing of body and spirit. Specializing in fixing facial deformities, Mercy Ships International embodies the great commission and demonstrates what God can do with a few willing hands and determined spirits. In Ships of Mercy, readers will realize the overwhelming need for this type of service and be inspired to lend a hand to make a difference.
