On my way....

I wish you could see me right now…I can’t sit still. You know how it is when you’re so excited you can’t contain yourself. I’m there. My plane leaves tonight for Africa. The flight will take around 10 hours. Once we arrive in Ghana, we’ll drive a few hours before we reach the hospital boat, Africa Mercy, in Lome, Togo. We’ll be serving with Mercy Ships for the entire week. I’ll call Craig and Kankelfritz every morning to let you know how things are going. I’ll also blog and post pictures so you can take the trip with me!! I would appreciate your prayers.

Okay, God…here we go! I LOVE you! Guide me, protect me and let me shine with YOUR love so lives will find HOPE and HEALING that only comes from YOU!

Hi Amy
I have read your blog, and want to wish you all the best as you experience the 'Africa Mercy' in Togo!  
I am a nurse from New Zealand who has actually worked on board the 'Africa Mercy' and can tell you it was a life changing experience.  I LOVED every moment and am keen to go back again some day, to use the skills and abilities God has given me.
You will also love it, and see and experience many amazing things!  I shall keep you in my prayers, and look forward to hearing all about it!!  
Blessings to you,
Ruth

That's great that you are going to Africa! My brother just came from South Africa a few weeks ago. He and our youth group went to Magashini. All of them said it was life changing so be prepared!

I am so glad to hear K-Love is with the Africa Mercy Ship this week.  My brother and his family just joined the Mercy Ship there in February.  Kevin Trapnell is the physician on board for the crew.  He and his wife (Melissa) and three Children (Will-9, Emily-6, and Stephen-6 months) are so happy to be there.

We are so excited to hear all the things God is doing through the Mercy Ship!  Please tell my famliy I said hello and we all love them!

Praying as you wing your way to a very special place.  Peggy Campbell (daughter) and I were on the AM in Liberia when the Anastasis was "decommissioned" there.  What a few days it was...a "forever" memory, never to be forgotten!!  God bless you as you go!

My post echoes Vickys post from earlier tonight! Our sister Stacia has called the Africa Mercy "home" for about a year and a half now. We have LOVED learning about MercyShips through her experiences in plastics. Her birthday is on Thursday.  If you "run" into her, please give her a birthday hug from all her family back home! She lives for the waffles on the ship. Maybe you should give em a try as well! I believe they make an appearance on Fridays. Smile Hope you have a great trip!
