Sept 28 – October 20th+/-
After an out and about, Be’twixt and Be’tween month, we have officially moved to our October SOWER project at Mercy Ships.
Their hospital ship provides free lifesaving surgeries for people where medical care is nearly non-existent.
Now obviously since we’re parked in the middle of Texas we are not working ON a Mercy Ship. But every organization needs a world headquarters, and THAT’S what is located here in Lindale (only 5 miles from the SOWER headquarters). I’m sure we’ll be doing standard SOWER ‘stuff’ – maintenance, cleaning, or whatever needs to be done – but the thought that we will be working to help needy people around the globe with their medical needs, even if it is in central Texas, warms my heart. And feeds my soul. We’re looking forward to a great month!
Here’s a short video from several years ago when the TV program 60 Minutes featured Mercy Ships on one of their segments.
