Well I don't even know where to start? Because this is my first blog....and there is so much I could write about!! But I guess I'll just tell you a bit about someone I just recently met! His name is Herman, he is a moto Driver/Road boss.....beings that he often is a Forman on the road crews! So the other week we got called to the clinic one morning and it was this Herman. He was operating his


 Moto kick start when for some reason the kick start broke when he apparently had most of his weight on it causing it to go through his foot...... It entered the bottom of his foot and came out the side! Leaving a hole in his foot about half an inch in diameter! So we did our best to clean and stitch it up and send him on his way.....but as he came back day after day it was just getting worse!! Especially when we couldn't get him to stop trying to work!!! So we finally decided to hospitalize him and keep it elevated! And Praise the Lord over the past 5 days it has been getting better better!!! So if you think of Herman you can pray for his foot that he would have 100% healing! 

                                             

And thank you for your prayers and support! We cherish them all!! 


James,

Clinic Cleaning

Greetings from the mountains of Haiti!! 

Many of you may wonder if we still exist. We do even though we have been very quiet. 

A little update on the past few weeks. We closed clinic December 20 and reopened January 9. It was wonderful to have a break from the daily clinic life and tackle some other much needed projects. 

The first project was the clinic. We scrubbed it from top to bottom chasing all those unwanted dust bunnies away. It was rewarding to see the floor change colour before our eyes as we scrubbed and scrubbed.

                          

The outside was more inviting after a few rakes and shovels went through. We had fun pulling weeds, stacking wood, and pressure washing the court yard. As a team it was rewarding to tackle some of the corners that had been neglected since Matthew had passed through. 

             

Thanks for all your support!
