We had the AMAZING privilege and opportunity to serve the people of West Africa for 2 1/2 years! We lived and served on a hospital ship in Benin, Togo, South Africa, and Sierra Leone with an organization called Mercy Ships from January 2009 to April 2011. Tim worked as the Assistant Purser and Hannah as a Ward Nurse/ Assistant Supervisor.
It was during this time that we fell deeply in love for the continent of Africa and her people. And when we stepped on the plane that would take us home, we left a piece of our hearts behind. We are forever grateful for the experience had, and for Africa and what she gave us, showed us, taught us…
Please head over to Our Lifesong blog to read more about that journey and the ministry of Mercy Ships. We are always eager and happy to share our testimony of God’s work.
We also made 3 photo videos of our experience that you can view here.
