Hi friends

I'm Elizabeth from Dallas, Texas and I'll be serving on Mercy Ships as a Ward Nurse from September 1st-October 19th!

I've been dreaming about this opportunity for a lot of years now, and I am so excited to be heading to Senegal!

Anyone else going to be serving during these dates?

    @rowlandontheriver_ and @alyssapryor31 and @alyssapryor31 so excited for all of you. You will love your time on the AFM! I served for a short 5 weeks in Benin in housekeeping, one daughter for 6 months as a receptionist, and another daughter, Beth, serves now as one of the elementary teachers on board now and next year in Senegal. I hope you will all get to meet her. She will be in her third term of service. Some of her besties on the ship (and cabinmates) are ward nurses. That is one of the great things about ship life is that you get to meet folks who serve in all kinds of capacities on the ship in order to bring hope and healing to the world’s forgotten poor. It will be a God-sized adventure for all of you! Blessings!


    I’d be glad to answer any questions you may have.
