Ship Birthdays...

Whenever a Mercy Ships crew member has a birthday on the ship, there are always some traditions that are adhered to:
  1. At lunch or dinner, the ship's bell in the Dining Room is rung in honour of the crew member whose birthday it is, and the whole crew sing "Happy Birthday" to the birthday boy or girl.
  2. Their cabin door is usually decorated with balloons and streamers.
This past Wednesday a couple of my good friends shared a birthday, and so we had a joint-surprise party for them. We shared cake, stories and played some fun games. It's another one of those things that really highlights to me that my friends here are family too.
