From outcast to allstar: Abel’s legs used to be severly mishappen, bending backwards at the knee. His physical deformity meant that for years he knew “only pity.” After several corrective surgeries in Togo in 2010, Abel’s legs are now straight. He can walk to school by himself. He can go to his grandfather’s farm and to market. But if you need him, he’ll be on the soccer field. ‪#‎sailwithus‬ ‪#‎mercyships‬

Dr. Parker: “I remember saying to myself, when I get opportunity, I want to come, maybe for a few months and just see if I’m cut out of the right fabric for that kind of life [aboard a hospital ship].”
Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes: “And how long have you been here?”
Dr. Parker: “26 years.”

Did you know doctors and nurses pay their own way to be a part of ‪#‎MercyShips‬? ‪#‎SupportMercyShips‬ and the work by doctors like Dr. Parker.

Don’t forget to watch 60 minutes tonight! Now I’m off to spend the day with Robert and Galen. It’s the 3 amigos last day together until next summer. Determined to be joyful because, Lord willing, we will meet again next summer. It’s not forever. I’m so grateful for the week we had together. I’m so grateful for the internet and phones and being able to speak to each other nearly everyday.
