I've taken the bold step forward to apply as a volunteer for the Africa Mercy. My hopes are to onboard in Dakar, Senegal in 2019 in the position of "Writer" as I am currently a Florida-based Freelance Journalist @ [http://pennydickersonwrites.com] It has been both an earthly dream and a spiritual calling to story-tell and report narratives from Africa and further walk into my calling to do Missions work. It all seems to click like a "Lego" with the possibility of Mercy Ships, so I pray this goes well.
In the meantime, I have questions. If you have ever served in the capacity of a writer, please share with me your day-to-day responsibilities. Is your schedule flexible? Where are stories published? How much time do you spend at the Hope Center and Dental Clinic? And while it sounds random, exactly how small are the sleeping berths and while I've read the ship was "chilly," are the cabins hot or cold? (I've heard hot). Thanks for responding. Penny
