Mercy Ship Expedition - Pictures of Kids: One Nurse's Story

My friend Marilyn is off on another 
Mercy Ship adventure in Africa. Those 
who followed her story before on the 
Africa Mercy know that Marilyn is a 
volunteer nurse on a hospital ship that 
sails the African coast in search of patients. 
She emails me and I share her post with you. 
I hope you enjoy!

"Pictures of kids" (03-27-17)

Here are some pictures of some of the kids we did surgery on last week. Thought you might like faces to go with the names.  I couldn't find a picture of Maurice and Sophie, but Jacques, Marie, and Elodie were the three kids from the one family that I mentioned, and Anna, with the broken leg, and her sister Dorcas had surgery after those three.

  1. What a lovely post and pictures that capture so many hearts.
    Thanks for sharing.


  2. I count my good fortune and weep for those who suffer in our unequal world. Thank God for those with the strength and will to ut and try to help. We lesser mortals can only give what we can afford to relief organisations and charities.


"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary
(A.B. Alcott). Stay and visit awhile. Your comments mean a lot to me.
