The ship will carry a team of about twenty workers to two or three ports of call during each mission of up to ten weeks duration. The ship will be in a particular port for up to 18 days. This greatly improves our ability to assist each missionary and give the workers a much broader view of missions. The life changing experience for both the workers and the people they work with will enrich the cause of Christ in an immeasurable way.
Our primary areas of work will be Vacation Bible Schools, Evangelistic Meetings, Bible and Bible Tract distribution, street preaching, house-to-house visitation, and preaching in public schools. The doors are open wide for souls to be saved in the third world and by God’s guidance we can have an impact for the gospel in our generation.
The ship will be equipped with a medical clinic facility to accommodate two doctors and a small pharmacy. The opportunity to provide free medical care on the mission field has opened more doors than any of us ever imagined. Churches and Children’s homes have been blessed and communities have opened up to the gospel after our medical teams have spent a few days working among the poor and needy. Having a shipboard facility will enable us to provide a clean, well-stocked clinic wherever we are working.
Teaming up with Unsheltered International, the ship will be equipped to assist in any natural disaster that may occur in our area of operations. Our efforts will be in the area of providing medical care, either from our shipboard clinic or by moving the clinic inland if necessary. In January of 2010 Haiti was hit with a massive earthquake, the airport was closed to regular traffic for quite sometime, and any motel space was gone immediately after the event occurred. The ship will be able to provide a way into such areas, as our team would have lodging, food and the clinic all on board the ship.
