Day 3 Itinerary: Medical Needs all around

During our first clinic yesterday, our ministry was cut short due to a political rally that had begun within the tent city.  A large crowd of people had gathered, and more continued to join.  They weren’t yet close to our clinic, but we could hear them across the hills and could see the mass of bright tshirts wind through the paths.  So, to be on the safe side, we left before we were able to pass out all the medications.  Tuesday morning we’ll be returning  to the tent city for about 2 hours to finish the clinic.

Our afternoon will be spent at a truly special place…an orphanage for handicapped children, some severely disabled and bedridden.  The sad truth is that many disabled people in Haiti are abandoned and ignored.  But one orphanage takes these precious children in and tends to them as if they are the most important people in Haiti.  For the ones who are mobile, we’ll be playing games and having some music/dance time.  For the ones who are bedridden, we’ll just hold them and bring them love through holding their hands or helping tend to their needs.

Thank you for your prayers!

  • Please pray for our return to the tent city, continue to pray for the requests I made known to you yesterday.
  • Pray for the children at the disabled kids orphanage…that they can experience our Healer in their lives!
  • Pray for the orphanage owner, caregivers, and workers.  For strength and perseverance.  Also that God would provide for their every need in order to effectively tend to the health and comfort of the children.

Oh, a praise report!  Welvins (the boy I mentioned yesterday…I spelled his name wrong), went to a hospital today to see what else might be done.  They admitted him and are going to run more tests!!
