Arrival in Tenerife!

Just a short one to say that after eleven days at sea the M/V Africa Mercy safely docked in the port city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain, at around 08h30 this morning (Saturday 19th December). Thank you for your prayers and praise God for a safe arrival! Here are some photos of our arrival in Tenerife.

Our pilot approaches with the dawn...

... Comes onboard...

... While the pilot boat speeds back to port!

Good friends make for good photo opportunities!

With Christina and Leah, a couple of my lovely Gateway sisters!

Approaching the entry to the port.

Getting closer!

Clearing the breakwater!

Crew members watch as the AFM is nudged closer and closer to the dock.

The Port Authority building across the harbour.

Hardworking deckies secure ropes on the aft mooring deck.

Our faithful friend who greets us each year with hymns and carols on his trumpet.

Nearly there!

The Gangway is down!

And the AFM is safely docked in Tenerife!
