Last Thursday was Spirit Day in the Academy. The theme this month was formal wear. It was also Crazy Scrub Day in the operating room. My cabin mate, Allison, and I found each other in the dining room and this was the result:
I have been volunteering with Mercy Ships since January 2009. Mercy Ships operates the largest non-governmental hospital ship (M/V Africa Mercy) in the world and brings free medical care to the people of West Africa. The ship is currently docked in Lome, Togo and will remain there until August.
I am a Grade One teacher - teaching the crew members children in the Academy. The Mercy Ships Academy is located on the Africa Mercy. There are about 50 students and 12 teachers from different countries.
I am a volunteer with Mercy Ships and raise my own support. If you would like to support me please
I serve with Mercy Ships. Everything here, however, is my personal opinion and is not read or approved before it is posted. Opinions, conclusions and other information expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views of Mercy Ships.
