Today I experienced a "first". I don't normally keep track of them and they seem to happen pretty often with people on the ship, but I couldn't get over it today at work. Last week a phone conference was organized between the two Mercy Ships offices that I order from and myself on the ship. This afternoon at 3:00 I got a call from the Texas office (where it was 9 AM) and we were then connected to the Dutch office (where it was 4:00 PM). So not only was it my first ever conference call, but were were all in different countries.
We went on to talk about some of the food/snack items that we order and how we can best maximize out inventory and ordering. As a direct result of the conversation we will be getting our Pringles from the Dutch container witch allows for more room on the Texas container but it also enables us to offer fresher product because of the shorter transportation. We will also be looking for more international foods that we can do this with.
Today I also got to approve my first future "employee". A lady from the Southwest U.S. has gone through the application process and i approved her to work in Sales as long as the rest of her application/fundraising goes through.
I'm hoping to get some pictures of the shop for you soon. I will also be posting some great pictures from a recent Christmas Photo-booth.

World Wide Web

Mercy Ships has released it's new website. I know several people that have put a lot of work into this project and they should be very happy because it looks AMAZING! Take a look for yourself at or click on the picture below.

One reason they've been working so hard to get it going is because Mercy Ships is going to be on 60 minutes soon! They are predicting the spot to show sometime between now and Christmas, so keep watch and see when 60 minutes will be airing wherever you live.
