My Occupation Assistant Ward Supervisor
My Bio I'm Ali; twenty-six years old and working as an assistant ward supervisor on board the world's largest non-governmental hospital ship, the M/V Africa Mercy. Following the example of Jesus, Mercy Ships seeks to bring hope and healing to the forgotten poor. Since 1978, Mercy Ships has performed more than 33,000 surgeries. We've removed cataracts, straightened club feet and reconstructed faces. I spend my days supporting the nurses in the middle of a delightful whirl of crying babies, cast-footed kids, and even the occasional grownup. Writing gets me through.

Benin. Not so much a spoiler as it is the logical next step.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Read Barbara Kingsolver and listen to Audrey Assad. Both are incredible.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
