Since 1994, Brian and Warrie have been serving with Mercy Ships, both on a hospital ship and also at the International Support Center in Texas. Twin daughters, Addison and Alyssa, complete this family. The Blackburns currently live on the Africa Mercy.
During the past three years, Warrie served as the Managing Director of the Africa Mercy and Brian worked in various roles for the Mercy Ships Academy, an international K-12 accredited school for the 25 families that volunteer with the Africa Mercy.
In June of 2020, we returned to our home in Texas due to the global pandemic. We are currently volunteering with Mercy Ships at their Home Office. Brian continues to work with the ship school and Warrie is assisting with various projects including our Chaplaincy Department.
