From Newcastle to Ghana

If there is a way, a Mercy Shipper will find it! With recent delays on the deployment of the Africa Mercy it meant that we would not be able to make it to Ghana for the start of the outreach, so contingency plans were put in place! The service of the Anastasis was extended so some of our crew could use her as a platform to start work until the Africa Mercy is able to join them.
At the beginning of June the outreach started off with a medical screening in Tema where by 8am at least 2000 were waiting in line to be seen by a doctor, with the hope of an appointment card, a miracle, a new life.
In an interview with local volunteers who helped out with the security, they said
"We waited in vain to see racial boundaries prevent them from working effectively. Growing up, we were taught to believe that "The white man is always around to take from us and never cares about the black man’s well being." Our warped perceptions were totally shattered."
We praise God for the many lives that will be changed both inwardly and outwardly - please continue to pray that many lives will be touched !
"With God there are no boundaries"
We will continue to keep you updated as the outreach progresses
