Throughout West Africa, Europe, South Africa, the USA, and the South Atlantic Ocean. Our adventure continues as we seek God's will for our life after Mercy Ships.

The pied-billed grebe is a small water fowl common throughout the Americas. However, I hadn't seen one up close until we had a visitor in our pond last month. The pied-billed grebe is rather shy and avoids humans. This little guy was difficult to spot hiding in the grass by the water's edge. Once he saw me he quickly swam across the pond and dived deep into the water. He reappeared on the other side of the pond, and quickly retreated back into the grass. I'm loving all the wildlife and birdlife in Indiana at this time of year!
Spot the little bird.
Safely hiding in the shallows.
Turtles sunning themselves on the bank of the lake. Not sure what kind though.
I am a 32-year-old South African whose journey with Mercy Ships began in 2007 when I joined the M/V "Africa Mercy" in Liberia. I met my wife Candace in Sierra Leone in 2011 and together we served with Mercy Ships until December 2012. We worked with Mercy Vision in South Africa during 2013, and are now settling into a new life together in the USA.
If you would like to support Candace and I, please send us an e-mail to the address listed on my profile. Thanks!
We are now no longer serving with Mercy Ships, so please don't send any more mail to Candace and I on the ship. Thanks!
