Meet the Allege Staff!!

The past week has been a good week! God is blessing us with small clinic days. I believe that He sees when we need a break so we are ready for the next crunch. We missed Kayla this past week as she is home visiting her family but everyone is doing a great job of filling the vacancy.

Here are some pics to walk you through a day in our clinic and meet all our staff.  Each of the staff play a vital role in helping the clinic run smoothly.


When you arrive, you will meet Frè Kadèt. He is our gate guard. He will ask you who is sick and make sure you find a place to sit. Then he will give you a number to hold until you are called to make a dossier. Frè Direct and Frè Reynold will get you in the system and determine who you need to see. Frè Nores will be roaming around to make sure that everyones needs are met. Frè Adolph will find your chart and call you in. He will make sure you are weighed and ready to have your vitals taken.


This week Mis Katie will take your vitals and send you to see a nurse. Sè Bridget will be mopping, sweeping, and cleaning keeping the place nice and tidy. Patrick keeps us supplied with cut gauze. He also helps with laundry etc. The last people you will see are our pharmacists Madam Ledger and Zitha. They will fill your prescriptions.


After you have your vitals taken, you will be sent to see a nurse. Mis Sharon sees all our pregnant ladies. She follows the ladies on the program monthly to watch for any complications that may occur. Frè James is doing the blood pressure program while Kayla is home. He will ask if you have taken your medications today, determining if you can stay on the same medication or if you need to change. You will need to come back monthly so we can manage your blood pressure. Mis Leda, Mis Jocelaine, and Mis Alyssa will see you for general consultations. You will be referred to Dr. Felix if concerns are noted. Mis Katie is here to do your bandages. She will follow you closely asking you to come back on a regular schedule.

A few other highlights this week…...


Katie and I with a baby that was born. He was a healthy little man who had a very smooth delivery. 


Also, Mirland came back, the little girl I had blogged about several weeks ago. She has seizures that where debilitating her daily life. A miracle, her amount of seizures has decreased to almost none. She is back in school!!! I was so happy when her mom told me the story, all I can say is Mèsi Bondye!!

Thanks for your continued support!

Yet have I made myself a servant to all

For though I be free from all men,yet have I made myself a servant to all,that I might gain the more.  1 corinthians 9:19

Well we are at the end of a other week of clinic once again. God has been good! We were blessed with an abundance of medications from C.A.M for this month that were well needed. God knows exactly what we need before we even need to ask!

This dear lady came into clinic on Wednesday with swelling across her whole body. She's only 24 years old and looks 40. We believe she has kidney failure which leaves us with not a whole lot that we can do for her. Pray that God would perform a healing for her. It strikes me every time I look into young eyes that are in so much distress and so helpless.  I have to remind myself that it's in a time like that that God can reach the part of the heart that he longs to reach. That's why we must be willing to be his hands and feet,(no matter where we are.)

This is a other young lady that came in on Tuesday with similar symptoms as the lady above. She as 3 month old twins that have been staying in town with a relative for the past few days.


Here's Doc. Felix and James with her. They and a few others spent some time in prayer for both ladies today. We desire all of your prayers as well for these dear young ladies. James took her our to town today to try and get some more advanced care. Pray that they could get just that.

Three of our babies that we recently delivered at clinic came back for their first check up!

so this brings me to the end of my blog for this week. But before I completely log off I want to give you all a huge thank you for all your support. It means a lot and it makes a difference in many  lives.
Thank you and God bless you. 
Mis Katie.

Gods in Control!

These past few weeks I have just been reminded again of Gods grace towards us! And how he knows just how much we can take before we need a break!! It's times like these that make us stronger, There's no way I could have made it through the last couple weeks on my own! So I praise the Lord!

Gods in control!

For lack of being able to put my last couple of weeks in words, here is a few pics from last week!


                                 
                                       Here is Alyssa and I working on a wound that come in last week!    




                 This particular one actually had about 30 maggots that we removed the first day he came in!!



                                                      
 
Here is a Mom and her baby, Alyssa, Katie, and I had takin out on an emergency run out to Petit Goâve! To the general hospital there, the mom had started having seizures while she was in labor! We were all so glad to see mom and baby doing so well 3 days later!!

Sorry I didn't have more to share, hope the pictures help describe our week at clinic!!


And please continue to pray for our clinic, and the staff,
We cherish ever one!!

Darkness vs Light

My heart is over whelmed as I try to put my thoughts into words. Almost two weeks ago, we had a patient come in who was in severe respiratory distress. A young 25 year old man, who had a lived a very undesirable life. He had ruined himself so young. He was rough, tough, one you wouldn't want to mess with. He was brought to our clinic with a very short life expectancy. 

How would Jesus reach into a life like his? My flesh wanted to run the other way and hide but my heart wanted to give the love of Christ. Everyone left him. No one wanted to take responsibility and care for him. We were left to sort everything out. Where was his family? Where was someone who truly cared? 

My heart ached as we spent hours beside his bed sharing Christ, praying, and singing with him. The spiritual battle was strong. You could feel the rage between darkness and light. The young man fought on. He was fighting to hold on. Fighting to not die. He was scared. He didn't want to give up life. He would ask me, "Can you please give me another day Mis"? Of course, I wanted him to have a chance and be able to live another day but, that wasn't in my control. The last 24 hours were wearing, the spiritual battle was so strong. We kept ministering to His needs. 

I have no doubt that God was with us in those hours. The peace and calmness we experienced. God gave us a love and heart of concern for his soul. PTL! In the afternoon his sister showed up. She was a Christian from Port au Prince and had a testimony of the love of Christ in her heart. We were able to talk. She shared about her brother. She hadn't seen him in years because he hadn't wanted her in his life. However, when he was at the lowest place in his life. She is who he called for. She talked about her concern for his soul. We knew he was so close but was fighting against something. We committed to pray. 

That same night we had a lady in labour, James, Sharon, and I were down with her. Sharon and I were with the lady while James spent time with the young man. The patient's sister was there praying and talking with him.

Shortly after midnight a new life entered the world. A little bundle of joy. Not even an hour later the young man peacefully passed away. We will never know what happened but something in the atmosphere changed. He finally had relief and seemed to be at peace about letting go.

Life is Beautiful but so short. God gives us all one chance to live our lives. We have one chance to choose how we want to live our lives. What is my destination? What am I doing while I am on this earth? These are questions we all need to ask ourselves daily. 

Snapshots......
These little faces have a way of stealing our hearts

Our friend Herman is standing on both feet again. PTL

Meriland, loves to come see her "Mis". She is a little girl who lived a normal life up until a few months ago. She use to go to school and play with her friends but, now life is different. She started suffering seizures which overtook her life. She was having multiple seizures a day up until a few weeks ago. We placed Meriland on a medication that has almost completely stopped her seizure activity. Mèsi Jèzi!!

Thanks to all those have been praying and supporting us in so many ways. We have felt your prayers in the past several weeks. We could never do what we do without"Prayer Warriors". God richly bless you today. 

In His Service,
