Don Stephens, a Colorado farm boy, is certainly an unlikely hero. And turning a decrepit ocean liner into a floating hospital seems improbable at best. And yet that is exactly what happened twenty-five years ago. Because of the efforts of Stephens, his fleet of ships, and his "navy" of volunteers, thousands around the world have experienced healing of body and spirit. Specializing in fixing facial deformities, Mercy Ships International embodies the great commission and demonstrates what God can do with a few willing hands and determined spirits. In Ships of Mercy, readers will realize the overwhelming need for this type of service and be inspired to lend a hand to make a difference.

This is a book that you want to read! Oct 27, 2009
This is one of the most motivational books I've read this year! I enjoyed how the author gave bits of history interspersed with a "Ship's Log" of people who have been treated under the care of Mercy Ships. I greatly admire and appreciate all the work, time, and effort that so many people have given to make this amazing ministry happen for the poorest of the poor. Although the ministry of "Mercy Ships" doesn't evangelize with words, they let their actions speak with the love of Christ. Because of that lives are changed not only physically but sometimes spiritually as well.
God has given us all different talents and abilities. We may not be doctors, business men, or ships captains, but we all can be a tool in God's hand--and that my friend is the recipe for an everyday hero--God's style.
