Family Devotions on the AFM

We asked Harry to run family devotions this morning and he came up with this sign.

As President of devotions - his name for himself - he talked about how God is love and what that means.And how to apply it practically when playing with Lego. We then each had a drawing activity
and some songs. The president then marked our efforts - told us it was ok if we didn't finish it then we all prayed. As the other two were heading off, he announced that we hadn't finished. Luckily he has next weeks already planned!

Harry's tour of the AFRICA MERCY

We went to the dock. Here I am in front of a Mercy Ship Car
I took a picture of Dad on the dock.
Dad took a picture of me in the life ring at the bottom of the gangway.
I went up the stairs of the gangway
I then had two photos with Mr Tek, one of our security guards from Nepal.  They are all really cool guys and very nice to me.  They always say hello.
I turned my Dad's clip over - because he was going off ship.
He is the Third Engineer - General. Mr Tek helped me
We then went to Reception.  This is where you get your name tags to scan out and in for the ship. My friends Hannah and Jasmine work here. Jordan got in the picture too.  He also goes to my school.  He is in grade 9 and he is 14.

I took a photo of Dad in reception beside
the sign that says the Mercy Ships Mission.

Next we went to the Ship shop but it was closed.
My Mum works in the office next door .
We then went up the stairs to the Mid ships lounge.
 I like to play here with my friend, Renier from South Africa.

We then went to the International Lounge.
 This is where we have Community Meetings and Church. This is me holding up the flag of Congo.
I then showed the Australian
and New Zealand

We then went back to midships.  There we saw Jasmine from Canada.
She is the hairdresser.
And Benjamin who works with Dad in the Engine Room.
He is from Ghana.

We then bumped into my teacher,
 Miss Shea in the laundry!

I will write more about living in the AFRICA MERCY another day.  Bye!
