Crew Feature

26-year-old Filips Jansons, volunteer electronics technician, is originally from Latvia but has spent most of his life living in New Zealand. He’s now found another new home on board the Africa Mercy here in Guinea, where he’s been inspired by seeing love in action:

“My understanding is that Jesus came to first heal you before he can administer to your spiritual needs. I think that’s the awesomething about Mercy Ships: before anything else, we will take care of your physical needs. No matter what background you come from, you can leave here better than you came. People are loved no matter what.”
