Going Postal

Some of you have asked if you can send me "snail mail" or packages so I wanted to provide you with some info on how to do that. Just a little info on packages and how that works here (on the ship). Any packages that are sent to the ship usually arrive within about 2 weeks. If you are going to send a package I would appreciate it if you put a little money in the package because I have to pay $8.80/lb for any package I receive. (Yes, that is apart from the postage you have already paid!) Okay, so enough about the nitty gritty here is the address:

Stephanie Fiduk
Mercy Ships IOC
M/V Africa Mercy- Hospital Ward
P.O. Box 2020
Lindale, TX 75771-2020

On another note, some of you have been anxiously awaiting pictures! I took some pictures of my room and then ventured outside to take some of the ship! Only to come to find out that the humidity makes that almost impossible! You'll see what I mean...

My bunk (I have the top...the messy one haha)

This is our whole room which looks small, but is surprisingly roomy. There is a bunk bed, closet, and desk in each "room." And there are 3 "rooms" in my cabin. So far I have 4 roommates, so one of my roommates has no bunkmate! Lucky her.

No it's not foggy out, it's just humid =( Makes for bad photos. This is the clearest photo I have of the ship. Togo is actually really beautiful along the coast. The water is clear blue; the weather is warm and humid with a nice breeze.

More to come...
Saturday I am going to an Orphanage in Lome! And Sunday I am going to Church in the city, I can't wait! See you all soon!

Location:Lome, Togo
