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.
The ship will be equipped to assist in any natural disaster that may occur in our area of operations. We will be able to provide medical care, either from our shipboard clinic or by moving the clinic inland if necessary. In addition we will be able to provide fresh water and food to those impacted. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria vividly demonstrated the role Mercy’s Vessel can have in helping those that are hurting. While we are giving out a cold drink of water in His name, we will be sharing the Gospel with victims and relief workers we encounter.
