I know that some of you want to know more about another aspect of my visit right now but I'd like to share a bit about working on the ship so far.
It just so happened that the time I came to the ship the ship photographer was on break! I didn't know or anticipate this at all but since this was the case Ruben (In charge of the Communications Department) has been having me take pictures of the ship and other things that are related to the ministry and work that are happening! I'm not just a plumber this time! Isn't it amazing how God works things out!?
Every Thursday is prayer night which starts at 7:00 and typically lasts 3 hours. This Thursday was different though because we didn't just stay on the ship as usual but instead went on a "prayer drive" all through Malta and went to various locations to meet and pray. We went to a little church that was up on the 3rd story of a downtown building. It was really cool and I was blessed to be the photographer!
Naomi has really been developing her photography skills (Someday I hope she will be my assistant!) while I was gone because she was able to finally have equipment with more control. One night we decided to go out with the tripod and take a few long exposure night shots! We had a grand time and enjoyed the calm evening together. We have to be back on the ship by midnight so this was probably at about 10:30. Naomi is very careful to never be late! She is good for me!
A local Christian band came and blessed us with their performance in the Hope Theater on the ship and I was the photographer! I had a lot of fun going back stage and getting some unusual perspectives.
Naomi and I have been having a wonderful time together. Today she is off the ship with her family on break and I have to work unfortunately. She is taking 4 break days (Something Project Workers don't get) while her parents are here to catch up with them! She got to see her little sister for the first time in 1.5 years! Oh yeah, Noami's parents are pretty cool too! That's all I'm going to say about that now though! ;)
