Haiti • Spring 2016 • Day One

  Today is Church day.  I love Church in Haiti, especially the singing.  I love how Haitians praise God with no reservation.  Dancing, hands raised, giving their whole heart to God in worship.  The sound of their voices is something I wish everyone could experience. It’s as if they say, “Here I am Lord you…

Baptism Videos!

On Wednesday, we baptized three team members at a beautiful beach called Yahoo Bay. One of the trip highlights for sure! (We couldn’t get video uploaded sooner because of a poor internet connection.) Good news folks, the videos play right side up even though they appear upside down. If that’s not the case for you,…

Day 3: Prayer Walking and Baptisms

We’re halfway through our week in Haiti! Instead of clinic today, we toured several World Wide Village (WWV) initiatives. Our first stop was a visit to the goat herds. WWV is helping gift goats to families in order to raise and sell. This form of business is highly sustainable in rural Haiti. It was exciting…

Prayer Walking

We’re checking in on the growing goat herd. We prayed with people living up in the hills around Williamson. We visited the fishing village and the Luly school. Baptisms this afternoon!

Williamson Clinic: Day 2

Getting to the clinic is always an adventure. We pile into the back of a pickup truck, bumping along unpaved roads with trash, potholes, and goats, jostling against the rails as we hold on tightly, ducking to avoid low-hanging branches, and ending the last stretch with a burst of speed that takes away our breath….

City on a Hill Clinic: Day 1

The Haiti Medical Team inaugurated this week by performing a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Medical Clinic building. We found the new building spacious and a good place for work. We are looking forward to a new restroom being installed in the near future. 😉  All first time Haiti team members had good experiences and were…

Haiti • Spring 2016 • Day Five

By God’s grace, we finished clinic strong in Williamson today!  We saw well over 35 patients, the medical team treated many illnesses, and the discipleship team shared the love of God with everyone who walked in the doors. Kim and I started our day with Peter (World Wide Village staff) and our good Haitian friend,…

Haiti • Spring 2016 • Day Four

Today was our day to take a break from clinic and do a few other important things, including rest! Our start was delayed a bit by some bus troubles, but we were shortly on our way. We first drove to Williamson and were able to drive up the new road to the City on a…

Haiti • Spring 2016 • Day Three

We had another great day seeing God work in our clinic in Haiti.  Our goal was to help hurting people and bring God glory – what a joy to be able to do just that. Enjoy a few stories from our day… We spent about 30 minutes or so with a mother, 41, and her…
