Our family is years from being able to leave our current home in Texas and joining the crew of Mercy Ships. I am curious to know from families onboard, if you had years to prepare your family for what you are doing now what things would you focus on? Learning a foreign language? Learning about west african culture? Spiritual preparation? Physical preparation? My husband is a family physician and I am stay at home mom, home educator, and registered nurse. I am trained in wound care as well and would love to be able to serve the wards in any capacity. Being out of nursing for several years I feel that there might be some things medically that I need to brush up on as well. I do not want to waste time here at home with the distractions of first world life and miss out on what we should be getting ready for. I hope that makes sense. Any recommendations would be amazing!
