Together at Last

Finally we are together with the Anastasis in Liberia! It was very exciting sailing in with our crew hanging over the rails and the Anastasis crew singing and waving from the dock. Seeing old friends. Many of our crew were seeing the Anastasis for the first time and most of their crew had never seen the Africa Mercy. It was a wonderful time. We are now in a transition time as people, cabins, offices, hospital, school... are in the process of moving on board. The Anastasis is being taken out of commission after 29 years of service.
New names are being learned hourly. People coming and going. It is a very interesting time, to say the least. Lots of things left to do. Ken's list gets longer and longer! But he remains very cheerful. We are very glad to be here!!!
