Here are some photos that were put up on 60 Minutes Facebook wall, taken in Togo. We also got another post from them with the link to Don Stephens (founder) speaking about faith and Mercy Ships... We are not here to promote religion. We're here because we follow Jesus. Jesus healed the sick and brought sight to the blind... and so do we! It's incredible. Watch that segment here: http://cbsn.ws/XMRTlY.
