The Ship

To serve us well we need a vessel that could navigate major rivers as well as along the coast of the US, Central and South America. The primary area of ministry would be from the Gulf Coast of the USA to the Islands of the South Caribbean. 

We have now purchased a wonderful ship located in Bear, DE about 45 mins from Nottingham, PA. The vessel is 110 feet by 25 feet and we are currently working to scrape and paint the ship while we raise the funds for the refitting process. Once it is refitted it will house a fully equipped clinic and pharmacy for our medical teams; dorms for sixteen intern workers, cabins for eight crew and staff as well as a galley and dining area. This ship will make it possible for us to reach thousands of lives with the hope and help of the gospel each year and give opportunity for over sixty workers to take part in short term missions.
Evangelistic Teams:
Carrying a team of as many as twenty workers traveling to two or three ports of call in each trip the team could work in up to seven weeks of ministry. This would greatly improve our ability to assist each missionary and give the workers a much broader view of missions. The life changing experience for both the workers and the people they work with would enrich the cause of Christ in an immeasurable way.
Our primary areas of work would be Vacation Bible Schools, Evangelistic Meetings, Bible and Bible Tract distribution, street preaching and house-to-house visitation. The doors are open wide for souls to be saved in the third world and by God’s guidance we can have an impact for the gospel in our generation.
Medical Teams:
The ship will be equipped with a medical clinic facility that would accommodate two doctors and a small pharmacy. The opportunity to provide free medical care on the mission field has opened more doors than any of us ever imagined. Churches and Children’s homes have been blessed and communities have opened up to the gospel after our medical teams have spent a few days working among the poor and needy. Having a shipboard facility will enable us to provide a clean, well-stocked clinic wherever we are working.
Touching lives through medical aid with our doctors and nurses has been one of the highlights of the outreach of Mobilization Ministries over the last few years. Expanding and improving this area of gospel outreach is a great part of our vision for the ship and the future of our work.Evangelistic Teams:

Disaster Relief:
Teaming up with Unsheltered International the ship will be equipped to assist in any natural disaster that would occur. Our efforts would be in the area of providing medical care, either from our shipboard clinic or by moving the clinic inland if necessary. In January of 2010 Haiti was hit with a massive earthquake, the airport was closed to regular traffic for quite sometime, and any motel space was gone immediately after the event occurred. The ship would provide a way into such areas, as our team would have lodging, food and the clinic all on board the ship.
