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.

It was an eventful week in Daviess County, Indiana, last week. There was a severe
weather event on Tuesday night into early Wednesday morning. (28th February - 1st March.) There were
confirmed tornadoes on the ground just 15 minutes south of us. We
stayed overnight at Candace's parents when it was clear that it was
going to be a rocky night. We were thankful since this was the scene
that greeted us at our home the next morning. Our neighbour's apartment had its roof ripped off. There were pieces of metal, wood and
insulation spread out in the fields and trees over a kilometre away!
Thankfully no one was hurt, although the same can't be said for some beautiful trees that were badly damaged.
The debris field.
Insulation in all of the trees nearby.
A large pine tree snapped in half and jammed into the ground.
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!
