The Hope Centre...

The Hope (Hospital Out-Patient Extension) Centre is a land-based operation, run by Mercy Ships, where patients can stay if they need long-term recuperation after surgery. In this way, beds are freed up in the hospital so that more surgeries can be performed on the ship. The dental team also operates from the Hope Centre.

I was able to join Mercy Ministries in visiting the Hope Centre this past week. (21st January.) Mercy Ministries organises visits to orphanages and prisons in the nation in which we are docked. At an orphanage (and at the Hope Centre) we share a Bible story, make a craft, and play games with the children and adults. It was lovely to see the physical transformation in each of these little lives!
