December 28-January 18

Any other Winter service members hanging out on the board? I will be on board for three weeks over new years, I am an OR Nurse coming from Houston, TX. This will be my second service on board the Africa Mercy, I was in Guinea this past February/March for two weeks. I am so excited to return, I wasn't ready to leave in March. I wish I could stay longer than 3 weeks, but my employer said that's as long as they'll hold my position. I work in a pediatric hospital on the orthopedic surgical team, so I'm excited to see that I'll be in Senegal during the time when ortho surgeries are scheduled to happen.

I'm looking forward to meeting many new friends, and hopefully seeing some old ones!
