So… there has been much activity in packing and preparing to go … meetings to figure out how the tasks and jobs will be covered here as many of those going are managers of departments on the Africa Mercy and those departments still need oversight from here. So those of us remaining here (we will be staying with the ship) will be wearing several hats in addition to our hard hats! As crew members leave there is a shifting of the remaining crew between the houses to consolidate the housing requirement as best as possible. We will be closing down several houses and so we will be moving to a different flat next week! This is all taken in stride and seen as one step closer to moving aboard (hopefully in July or early August) and actually sailing our marvelous ship to Ghana.
