Last night we had a talent show on board, gosh how amazing is some of the talent onboard. We had piano again, poetry, and some wonderful duets. I did get to bed a lot later than normal.
We were woken up with the Captains voice, I pulled myself out of bed and headed on deck, we were right in the harbour and starting to dock. My first sight of Madagascar.
My roommate Dannie was given her countries flag and there was much waving and celebrations on shore. We are finally here.
I heard some of my other Madagascan friends claiming their land, "this is my land" the one said, "is not yours, it's mine said another". Much laughter as home friends were seen on the shore.
I am so excited that soon we will be engaged in the mission work.
The ship will suddenly get very busy, as we welcome onboard about another hundred staff and many more day crew.
If any of you wants to come out and join us, google vacancies and Mercyships.
It's going to be a very busy week, I am on pager duty from tomorrow for a week, I will be most grateful for prayers. If you see a picture of me with my hair on end, that's because I get a fright each time the beeper goes off. Oh yes, its looks that way most of the time now anyway. Good disguise, "no, I didn't get a fright, I always look this way. "
As we were connecting the computers on the gangway, I walked under a air-conditioning output area, so if you see me positioned on the gangway chatting to the Gerka's, you will know why.
