You can be a part of my service with Mercy Ships in many ways!
1. Read and/or follow my blog. It is important to me that friends and family still know what's going on in my life even though I will be so far away.
2. Pray for me. Change is hard! I know God will really stretch me as I move to a new continent where I don't know anyone. I covet your prayers. You can also sign up to receive emails with more personal prayer requests (beyond what is posted on my blog). Sign up here.
3. Support me financially. All Mercy Ships volunteers pay monthly crew fees for room and board so that all the medical care provided by Mercy Ships is completely free. Currently I am raising money for my 3rd year of service. I need to raise approximately $10,000. Gifts can be made online at http://mercyships-us.donorpages.com/crewmates/GwendolynFortune.
4. Send me emails/letters/packages. I know I will get homesick for all the people I love. I'm sure letters from home will be a big highlight for me! Check out the address to send mail on the Contact Me section of this blog.
Thank you for walking alongside me on this journey!
