Thank You function...
Candace and I wanted to thank those who helped save Candace's life back in December, and so we recently held a Thank You event at the hospital. Candace and her mom made special cookies decorated with the titles and departments of those involved, and the hospital provided a beautiful cake and fruit salad.
It was lovely to be able to say thank you to those medical staff who were involved during the emergency. We were also able to meet the 911 dispatcher who answered our call early that stressful morning. Thank you to all involved - and to everyone who was praying throughout our frightening ordeal!
The cookies that Candace and her mom made.
There were medical crosses, pills, nurses hats, and bottles.

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!
