    Eric Baliantz: Fulfillment Through Helping Those in Need

    Eric Baliantz: Fulfillment Through Helping Those in Need

    Eric Baliantz: Volunteer Mariner
    During some downtime as a mariner, Eric Baliantz decided to volunteer with Mercy Ships with motives different than most — he simply wanted to return to Madagascar. Eric had been sailing on ships since he was 19 years old but had never encountered a crew quite like the Africa Mercy crew. Eric’s eyes were opened to something that he had been searching for his whole life and this discovery caused him to return time and again to this impactful community.
    In this episode, Eric shares how his life was radically changed through Mercy Ships. He talks about the struggle to find purpose and fulfillment through his thrill-seeking lifestyle and how volunteer work gave him something he’d always been looking for. As Eric speaks from the heart, we encourage you to examine your life and consider the place where your purpose can be fulfilled.

    Erin Muyres: Educating Medical Professionals for a Lasting Impact

    Erin Muyres — Volunteer Medical Capacity Building Projects Director

    Erin Muyres was in nursing school in Canada when she began to question her decision to become a nurse. During the late hours in the library one night, Erin started to research what she might be able to do with her nursing degree when she finished school, and that was when she discovered Mercy Ships. She spent the next weeks watching every Mercy Ships video she could find, crying through them, and dreaming of a new vision for her life. She was determined to volunteer with Mercy Ships as soon as she was eligible, and that’s just what she did. 
    In this episode, Erin shares how her first field service was not only a dream come true, but also the start of a whole new dream. Erin explains how her knowledge and experience as a neonatal nurse allowed her to teach others and save many lives. 

    You will be encouraged by this sweet woman’s story of keeping her heart open as God prepared her for a role she never expected.

    In this Holiday Highlight, nurse Kelly Denning shares about the hope and healing that Mercy Ships offers our patients through her encouraging story of a woman who suffered alone for decades, until she boarded the Africa Mercy.

    Holiday Highlight with Dr. Andrew Clark

    Dr. Andrew Clark currently serves as the International Chaplain for Mercy Ships, but first volunteered as a physician many years ago. In the early days of Mercy Ships, the hospitals were not located on board, but the medical professionals would go into remote areas and help in local clinics. With limited resources, some situations seemed hopeless — but nothing is impossible with God!  
    In this holiday highlight, Dr. Clark shares a powerful story of trusting God and watching miracles unfold.
