check out The Surgery Ship on NatGeo People in Australia!

Hello from Fort Wayne, Indiana!  Nick and I are currently on our personal time off in the states visiting family before we head to Cameroon to continue our time with Mercy Ships.

We wanted to take a moment to let friends and family in Australia know that today (6 June 2017) at 7:30pm AEST the final episode of the eight part national geographic program "The Surgery Ship" will air on the Nat Geo People channel.  This one includes Nick and the clubfoot program!  

This film team was with us during the first half of the Benin outreach from August-December 2016, and they did an amazing job following stories of the patients and crew, and capturing so much of the heart of what we do.

Here are a few screen grabs from the Mercy Ships Australia Facebook page....(click on the to view them larger)

Here's a quick preview for the 8 part series:


 - I don't have Nat Geo People Channel, how can I watch?

Here are some helpful directions (click here).  If you are in Australia, it is possible to view episode 1 free online, and also to sign up to Foxtel Play (with a free 2-week trial) if you would like to see other episodes online.

 - When will the series air in the USA?

The series is not yet airing in the USA.  We don't know when it will air, but we will keep you updated!  In the meantime, you can check out lots of clips, photos and previews at the National Geographic website here.  

More blog updates coming soon, but we just wanted to take a moment to share the news about the documentary!  Nick and I are doing well, and enjoying our break and out time with family.  If you want to see a few photos, you can head over to my instragram account here.
