Sharon Embraces Some American Culture

When you’re in an international marriage there are times that one has to dabble in the other ones culture. Coming from the UK, Sharon is used to the abundant supply of “BISCUITS” that are easily available from most local stores, so making them from scratch is not something that the ‘Brits’ make a point of doing regularly. So when there was a request for cookies for a shipyard workers meal, Sharon just couldn’t resist rising to the American challenge and getting out her American cookbook to indulge in cookie land heaven! The results?.....well, they were eaten and nobody has died yet!..…and for those in the USA that Sharon has taught how to make a cup of British tea, maybe we should get together….with your tea and her cookies we could have a great afternoon!!

Tim features in Professional Mariner's Magazine

For those who are technical or maritime, have a look at the latest issue of the “Professional Mariner” magazine. You will find an article featuring the work of Mercy Ships, and our involvement in it. Being a secular publication, we were pleased that the publishers were willing to present at least a balanced view of what we do, and also willing to acknowledge that there is a spiritual aspect to our motivation and service. Tim is quoted extensively and was able to share openly about why he is serving the Lord in Mercy Ships.
