08 Feb JB Gill Visits the Africa Mercy
JB may be best known as a former member of the band JLS and as a presenter on BBC’s “Songs of Praise.” He’s also become a farmer and is committed to raising awareness about where our food comes from, as well as helping young people use their creativity to put their faith in action.
JB is also a strong supporter of Mercy Ships, which is why he’s visiting our hospital ship to experience our life-changing work firsthand. JB Gill is visiting the floating hospital along with Bishop Karowei, Dr Mosun (the Bishop’s wife) and Rev’d Celia Apeagyei-Collins. Through free surgery, Mercy Ships frees people suffering from diseases of poverty and lets them start to realise their potential and hope for the future.
In many parts of Africa, if someone has a facial tumour, cleft lip/palette, a windswept leg or another disability they may be ostracised from their community. Forcing people who are already suffering, to live out of sight, suffering alone. Our amazing volunteers onboard the Africa Mercy not only fix physical ailments but also show the patients that they are loved.
JB Gill was recently interviewed on UCB with Darren Richards, of Mercy Ships. Listen to the interview below.
