December 10/11 – Hi Jane,
We finally left Freetown today. My mother travel backed back to the village about a week ago and Daniel also travel to Bo yesterday . So there was nobody to bid me fare well. As we were about to move several questions came to mind.
1. Are we going to come one day and meet with all the family members alive?
2. Is the 2012 National Election going to be peaceful?
3. Will God provide us a good leader in the 2012 election that will help to minimize the suffering of our people?
4.I also thought of those that are still sick and did not get this wonderful opportunity . I then asked myself a question, when will they get hope and healing?,br> 5. I also thought of my other friends who were also Day workers like me on the ship for the 9 month of the outreach in Freetown, then I finally asked my self a question. How soon are they going to secure another job? Etc,etc
It is my hope that God will answer all these challenging questions for my People. I almost cried when I saw George,s father biding him fare well on dock.

I don’t think we would have ever thought of become a crew member for Mercy ships without your candid support and other financials. We are really grateful to all those who have contributed and to also those who are still donating to this course.
We highly appreciate the effort you are marking to help us realize our dreams of becoming useful people in society. God will surely continue to elevate you and all those who have meaningfully contributed to this noble venture.
