The Ministry

The Hilton family lives on a hospital ship named the M/V Anastasis 7 (Anastasis means “Resurrection” in Greek.) They spends approximately 7 months a year in various West African nations performing many life changing surgeries for people who would otherwise have no hope of medical intervention. The remaining 5 months of the year are spent in various European ports where medical supplies, food and other necessities are procured for the upcoming outreach phase in Africa. Ken works as Head Plumber on the ship. Jennifer works as Coordinator of Mercy Ministries. Mercy Ministries creates opportunities for those who work on the ship in various capacities to join a team of people who regularly visit orphanages, polio communities, prisons and hospitals on the weekends. MM also looks for simple, practical service projects(ie. painting a school) that teams can bless a community with. The children attend a small Christian school located on B-Deck.

Mercy Ships Mission

Mercy Ships, a global charity, has operated ships in developing nations since 1978. Following the example of Jesus, Mercy Ships brings hope and healing to the poor, mobilizing people and resources worldwide.
