What do you think most Navy ships do? This one carries doctors and nurses. It sails to places where poor people need help.
Doctors do surgery [ser-jer-ee]. Dentists fix teeth. Nurses give out pills.
The USNS Comfort sailed to Haiti. Doctors helped hundreds of people. All that help is free.
READ MORE: The U.S. Navy has two floating hospitals. Haiti was the last stop for the Comfort. The ship and its crew (900 people in all) had been helping people in Central and South America and the Caribbean for five months. Many of the countries where the ship stopped do not have enough doctors or hospitals to care for their people. The Comfort crew is a picture of how the “God of all comfort” helps us. Read 2 Corinthians 1:3-5.
