Not to leave you hanging

Posted by on Mar 22, 2011 in Blog, News & Updates | 0 comments

I haven’t posted in a long while, so if you’ve been checking back regularly I apologize for that. I got sick the day of/after screening day and am going through a new and exciting illness right now. I’ve also had a lot of work to do, so I’m pretty well wiped in general. We’re doing our second big screening day this coming...

Screening Day – Freetown

Posted by on Mar 8, 2011 in Blog, News & Updates, Reflecting | 2 comments

Ever since I’ve joined Mercy Ships I’ve discovered that every day is unique. Every few that pass prove to hold some form of significance that I would never have experienced outside of my time with this ministry. The places we go, the people we meet, the things we end up doing while working or in our free time. It’s not uncommon to utter...

In a way it was completely surreal, we’ve been in Durban for so long (and myself only two months compared to the five the ship had been there) that it seemed we would never leave. In a way that would have been ok, we made some great friends in Durban...

It looks like I’ll have to do another 2-week 1 photo/day post next week since I’m falling behind again. I’m running into all sorts of issues with my phone right now so uploading photos got difficult today. And my kindle got stolen this week (allegedly) so it’s gotten a bit rough. That and the migraine that turned into unpleasantness...

Life Caught Up to Me

Not that this is unexpected, but it has. I’ll get a real blog post up soon, get caught up with the photos, etc. Until then just know I’m alive and working a lot. We had a big thank you event for our partners and friends here in South Africa yesterday, it was a ton of fun. It did mean, however, pulling a 17 hour day which included 5 hours of...
