This is the ship I am on now – my last time as crew here was in spring ’91. Due to the delays with the Africa Mercy, we are using the Anastasis to start the outreach here in Ghana. The Anastasis has just finished up her second outreach in Liberia. This is a time of transition as many are leaving and others have come and more are to follow. Once the Africa Mercy arrives, we will move over and the Anastasis will be retired from her service which started in ’82 after renovations in Greece.
Ghana is located in West Africa – just west of Togo. I am in the Port of Tema – on the coast, last city listed on the right hand side. Near to Accra which is the capitol and where the international airport is located – which all of us will be using. We will be here till February ’07
My cabin on the m/v Anastasis – larger than my cabin on the Caribbean Mercy. It is located on B deck, port(left) side and at the very back, just at the entry to the Crew Clinic. The cabin has good storage spaces, a telephone, port hole and a shared bathroom.
