I’ve ARRIVED!! I am safe on the Africa Mercy Ship!

Hi Everybody! Thank you for your prayers over me as I traveled! I arrived safely to the ship last evening. There were a few hiccups along the way, and I almost missed my flight from Johannesburg to Durban! BUT, I made it! 🙂

The ship is currently in Durban, South Africa. We set sail for Benin, West Africa either Sunday OR Monday! BUT, before arriving in Benin we’ll make a quick pit stop in Cape Town, South Africa.

It’s been wonderful to come aboard again, to greet familiar faces and meet new people. You can pray for courage and peace as I get to know the hospital leadership team and step into my new role as the Admissions Team Lead.

Enjoy the pictures! 🙂



T-minus 3 days until I leave the country!

IMG_2830I can’t tell you how much I have been extremely blessed and thankful for all of the support, words of encouragement and monetary blessings people have given me as I prepare to serve! I am excited to report that my current support is $7,859.93. My goal is to raise $8,000.00. It’s so close 🙂 I have no doubt the Father will provide the rest!

My departure day is Tuesday, July 26th @5:40PM from Washington Dulles Airport! I will post before I leave the states and again when I arrive in Durban, South Africa!

Where in the World am I going?

Departure date is July 26th from Dulles Airport. The next day I land in Durban, South Africa. Durban is on the right side of South Africa. I will join the crew on the Mercy Ship in Durban and from there we will sail to Cape Town, South Africa (It’s labeled on the map with a star on the left side of South Africa). While in Cape Town, Mercy Ships will open its doors for a day or so of private tours and promotional events. Then we set sail for our final destination….Cotonou, Benin (West Africa). It’s the small country in the middle of the red circle on the map below.

I am so very close to my fundraising goal! At this point I’m in contact with Mercy Ship’s Finance department to find out my grand total. As soon as I know the total I will get the word out! Thank you again for all your support & encouragement! I couldn’t do it without you!
