Akou's story

I wanted to share with you a touching story of some new friends I met while on the Mercy Ship last week. This baby's name is Akou, and her life, as young as she is, has been changed through a cataracts surgery on a Mercy Ship. Thank you for all your prayers; this was just one of the many lives that have been impacted by their work.

Last day in Africa!

Before flying out today, we were able to see a few more aspects of Mercy Ships (and make some more friends).


  

This is the dental clinic. It’s off ship. The day we visited, the dentist saw 80 patients and pulled 170 teeth.
 
We also stopped by the “Hope Center”. It is off ship housing for long-term patients and families. I was able to play Connect 4 with  Hatim. He won. They’re waiting to get x-rays back before they remove his tumor. It will be his third surgery.

 

We also met this sweet baby with a cleft lip. She will be getting surgery in a few days but is staying at the Hope Center because she lives so far away. She insisted on helping her mom with laundry. I wish my kids had this passion for doing laundry.
