Mercy Ships-Honoring Mother Teresa

To celebrate the canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta today and to encourage her spirit of compassion, I’m sharing this old blog post about Mercy Ships. Please consider how you can offer Mercy and compassion in your world today.

It is all for the bright!

More than 75% of the world’s population lives within 100 miles of a port city. In many places around the world, there are children and adults in desperate need of healthcare. Mercy Ships are equipped with clean water, reliable electricity, and medical personnel offering free medical and dental services for people in underprivileged countries. Screen Shot 2012-12-04 at 2.08.43 PMIn my series, Days of the Guardian, there are ships filled with rescued people rescuing others, including a ship called the Mother Teresa, a hospice ship. I had never heard of Mercy Ships before writing the first book, The Red String, but I am thrilled to discover someone had  the vision and tenacity to make them a reality, not simply a dream of fiction. Please watch the video below and learn about these amazing ships.

Also, please consider buying a shirt from Sevenly this week. (The charity of the week is Mercy Ships.) With every shirt sold, a donation of $7 goes to help those without access to life-changing medical care around the world. Look at the amazing similarity of the Mercy Ships shirt design with The Red String‘s book cover design! God is not small, folks. We are all guardians of one another. RedStringCover-Kindle
