Dear all our lovely supporters,
This is just to give a quick update on our plans for the next few weeks. We still have heard no word on our visa process, which continues to teach us patience and trust. In the meantime though, while we wait, we have decided that while Candace has a job as a nurse in Indiana, I'll be heading back to the ship to help out in their Reception/Purser team. I've been having a number of dreams about Mercy Ships and have found myself missing the ship quite a lot lately. It would also be good to be kept busy with a distraction while Candace and I continue to be in separate countries.
And so I will be jetting off to Pointe-Noire, Congo, on the 26th December to serve back onboard the M/V Africa Mercy and help out during a transitional phase for the Purser/Reception team. I'll just be there for a month, but I am really looking forward to being back and connecting with old friends again, as well as doing something meaningful with my time as we wait on the Lord. It'll be strange being back on the ship without Candace, but we know that God is in control and will continue to grow our marriage during this time.
If you would like to support me for the month I'll be away, please send us an e-mail. Otherwise, please continue to lift up our US spousal visa application process in your prayers, as well as Candace's new job as a nurse in Indiana, and my upcoming trip to the AFM.
Much love, God bless, and have a very merry Christmas!
- Murray and Candace
Murray and Candace Crawford
Murray joined the Africa Mercy 3 years ago - first for one year and then for a longer term. This has enabled him to fulfill two of his desires - to make Jesus known to those in need and to be at sea on board ship. He loves servicing Christ. On 4 March 2012 he married Candace Miller whom he met on board and they will continue to serve the Lord together.
