This is picture of Min one of the gaurds from the ship. Each time we leave the ship we have to scan our card. It is for security so they know where we are if there ever was an emergency they could quickly go to the computer and know immediately who was on and off the ship.

These pictures are pictures of the Mercy Ships logo being painted over on the Anastasis in preperation for the Anastasis being recycled. The Anastasis sailed to be recycled on June 29, 2007. It was a little sad to see my home for the first eight months of living in Africa sail away. For me it was only eight months others it had been 10 to 20 years.
These are a couple of pictures of the inside of the hospital on the African Mercy. The first is a picture of one of the wards and the other is a picture of the ICU. Things are very different than the Anastasis. The African Mercy was designed as a state of the art hospital ship where as the Anastasis started out as a passenger ship and was renovated to a hospital ship.

The Africa Mercy arrived May 21, 2007. It is now docked beside the Anastatsis. Between the last day of surgery and the arrival of the African Mercy the crew have been busy packing the Anastasis. Now with arrival of the African Mercy the crew is starting the process of bringing everything needed from the Anastasis to the African Mercy.
