DNA is a family of associate ministries, and one of those family members is Harvest. Harvest staff member, Chris Ampadu, also serves as DNA coordinator for West Africa. In recent months, God has opened many doors for him to share the biblical worldview with the staff of Mercy Ships, a Christian organization that brings healthcare–aboard giant ships–to those most desperate for it.
On February 17, U.S. television network CBS aired an excellent segment on Mercy Ships. Click here to watch the full segment.
“Spend a few days as we did, aboard the Africa Mercy, and you will see how two worlds meet: at the intersection of courage and compassion,” says reporter Scott Pelley from CBS’s long-running television news program, “60 Minutes.”
The ministry of Mercy Ships extends far beyond the physical realm. Last year, Chris Ampadu began training hundreds of people in the biblical worldview through this ministry. Mercy Ships crew members, local government officials, pastors and church leaders have received biblical-worldview training through this fruitful partnership.
“This week, we had a wonderful conference for pastors and church leaders with almost 600 participants,” Chris said of a recent Mercy Ships invitation to Guinea. “Interestingly, the conference was held at Winners Chapel which was attacked by Moslems last few weeks. Now, the church has a solution–to love their Moslems brothers, and they have made plans to initiate seed love actions towards them … they have no option than to love them!”
In the months to come, watch for more stories about Chris and his partnership with Mercy Ships!
