This Blog serves as two things: a photo-diary of our lives between 2007 and mid 2011, when we saw some incredible things and met some amazing people; and a reflection of our more normal lives since then.

Mercy Ships surgeon receives top award

Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Gary Parker, was in London last week to be made a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons. Dr Gary has served full-time as maxillo-facial surgeon with Mercy Ships on the Anastasis and Africa Mercy for the last 22 years, and has done thousands of cleft lip and palate operations and tumour removals. He is one of the humblest men I know, and is full of the presence of our loving Father. Photo of him examining a patient with a massive facial tumour. Olly
