Video, Social Media, Design for Medical Ministry

Papua New Guinea is the land of the unexpected, the least explored country on Earth! It has 1,361 islands - 291 of which are inhabited - 800 known languages, and 7 million people. 84% of the population live in rural areas and villages located in mountains, jungles, rivers and along the coast. These beautiful landscapes can make it extremely difficult to receive adequate healthcare as islands without airports and shorelines with no roads or bridge access make it near impossible to get in.

In Papua New Guinea, 5 women die in childbirth every day, one of the highest rates in the world. Other public health stats that demonstrate the concerning effects of such lack of access to quality healthcare include 1 in 13 children die before the age of 5, someone dies of tuberculosis every two hours, and there is only 1 dentist for every 100,000 people. One ministry has pioneered an innovative solution to meet this need in the name of Christ. This ministry uses medically equipped ships to reach isolated islands and remote shoreline villages through healthcare and the gospel of Jesus. Along with medical services, their medical ships also bring hope, mercy and God's love. They desire for these isolated communities to know they are not forgotten; they are seen and heard by a loving God.

After a few months of initial training, Goers will live on board the medical ship 6-8 months at a time and spend 2-3 months resting, recovering, training, and serving administratively at the Hawaii home base in between outreach trips. During the travel season, the ship makes transformation visits to different isolated communities every 1-2 weeks. On board the ship, Goer have responsibilities from Monday through Friday. In addition to fulfilling the role and job duties, the Goer will also carry God's presence on board and in every interaction with our national volunteers. There are ample opportunities to minister and disciple others, through prayer meetings, community meetings, devotionals and supporting the leadership team on board.

The Media Team exists to tell the story of of the ministry well. Our vision is to see more young people, nurses, doctors, sailors, etc interested in our work and come serve with us to reach the isolated with God’s love. We develop the materials, both in print & digitally, to help tell that story.
