Friend Ships has been given the opportunity to obtain a 4500 sq. unused field hospital with a 114kw generator, 6-5 ton AC/Heater units, complete electrical distribution with outlets (proper regional current), lighting system and 50 portable hospital beds.  It is currently stored in Jordan, just a few hours from our Gaza location. It would be a great addition to our set-up and we would like very much to obtain it. The value is $450,000. The company will donate the facility but need to receive $100,000 to cover some associated costs. If the Lord puts it on your heart to contribute to this need, we would be very appreciative.
