The Africa Mercy is in Sierra Leone!

The Africa Mercy is serving in Sierra LeoneMy parents grew up in the aftermath of the Korean War.  Food, clothing and shelter were hard to come by, making life very challenging.   It was because of the generous donations from the United States and U.N. that my parents were able to survive.  I know this is true because I have heard their stories many times!  I also know that if it wasn't for the complimentary handouts that helped keep my parents alive, my very existence would be doubtful!

SEO Keeps Changing!

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the search results you get? Bing certainly thinks people do. That is exactly what led to their latest marketing push to become the "decision" engine...not just a search engine.

Not too many hands.  Just what I suspected.
