**UPDATE** The welders are working this week
on welding new steel into place.
We have contracted the firm of Swenson and Sons LLC
from New Jersey to do the work. Once the hull is repaired,
Mercy's Vessel will be able to go back in the water
and begin sea trials!
The primary area of ministry would be from the Gulf Coast of the USA to the Islands of the South Caribbean.
Mercy's vessel is currently dry docked and being refitted at Yank Marine in Tuckahoe, NJ. The vessel is 110 feet by 25 feet. Once it is completely 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.
