A friend accompanied me on cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Marseille, France, which was intended as a fun alternative to flying over the ocean, and to give a break between furlough and returning to Togo. The cruise turned out to be a nearly complete disaster, thanks to Coronavirus, a grand misadventure which I’ve described in my latest update (feel free to contact me if you didn’t get it!), but that doesn’t mean there weren’t a few beautiful views of God’s creation along the way!

Some beautiful skies over the ocean to remind me that God keeps His promises! In the bottom image, the sun’s rays spoke of His light and hope in a dark situation (we were quarantined in our cabins at the time).
