A message about the report on Mercy Ships on 60 Minutes and CBS Evening News – please read below from Don Stephens:
Last Sunday evening (February 17, 2013), Mercy Ships was featured in a wonderful segment produced by the CBS television news broadcast 60 Minutes. I hope you had the chance to watch! We are grateful for the opportunity to reach millions with the message of hope and healing for the world’s forgotten poor. If you didn’t have a chance to watch the program, please take a few minutes to view it online!
As a follow-up to this story, please help us continue to spread information about Mercy Ships and its mission. Here are a few ideas that take only a few minutes:
Communicate your passion for Mercy Ships by introducing us to those in your circle of influence. Tell them how you personally support Mercy Ships and ask them to get involved. There are several other things that you can do as well – each that takes as little as 60 seconds;
• Tweet or email a link (http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50141230n ) to the 60 Minutes segment online.
• Post a link to the segment on your Facebook page.
• Send an email – to people you think might be interested in learning more about Mercy Ships.
Transform lives by giving regularly and encouraging your friends and colleagues to do the same. You can donate online at www.mercyships.org/give.
Pray for those we serve around the world – for our staff, crew and volunteers; and for the mission of bringing hope and healing to the world’s poor.
Continue to pray that the millions of people who watched this important story – and those who will watch online – will learn about the work of Mercy Ships and decide to let their mercy make a difference, just as you have.
Thank you, again, for your commitment to Mercy Ships and to serving others.
Your Mercy Makes a Difference!
