I've been quite inspired lately, and after a long hiatus after the world trip, I've finally been picking up my camera again. The snow fell thick on Toronto yesterday, and my brother's apartment balcony on the twenty-second floor was the perfect place to watch the sky clear again.
Would you believe that these photos are both of the same view?
I'm Ali; twenty-nine years old, and married to Phil, an electrician, also known as The Husband of Joy (HoJ for short). We're parents to Zoe (who is quite possibly the cutest baby ever), and we live on board the world's largest non-governmental hospital ship, the M/V Africa Mercy, where we work with Mercy Ships to bring hope and healing to the forgotten poor in West Africa. The whole crew, from cook to captain, is made up of volunteers from more than thirty countries who are dedicated to bringing the love of Jesus to the world. So many people say they love their jobs enough to do them for free; we're a ship full of people who actually get to live that way.
