Arriving in April

Hi everyone ,

I am heading out to join the dental team in April. It would be great to have someone to travel with. My flight is with Air France from Heathrow via Paris on Sunday 5th April.

This is my first time with Mercy Ships so I am both nervous and excited.

If anyone has any tips on what to pack , especially things they wish they had brought that would be really helpful.

Sending blessings to all

Janette D 🙂
