Welcome to my Blog!
My name is Jenny and I'm a nurse from Florida. I am currently working at a children's hospital on the Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplant Unit but my dream for several years has been to combine my nursing skills with my passion for missions in a big way.
Beginning in August, this dream will come true when I fly across the ocean to a big white boat on the coast of Madagascar to fulfill the calling God has laid on my heart. I'll be volunteering on the Africa Mercy, the largest non-governmental hospital ship in the world providing free surgical care to the forgotten poor. I've traded chemotherapy and antibiotics for dressing changes and pain medicine - and a cozy life in the US for a cramped cabin on a ship in Africa - to be a part of changing the lives of some very special people and sharing the love of Jesus every step of the way.
My hope is that through this blog, you will be able to catch a small glimpse of this journey. Through stories, pictures and maybe some random fun facts, I will try to bring a piece of Africa to you, and help bring a piece of you to me in Africa.
Thanks for coming along with me...enjoy the ride, cause I know I will!
