Life is hard in Haiti. Really, really hard. When I was there a few weeks ago, we saw some very difficult situations.

This lady was incredibly thin. I have never seen anyone who looked this way. We took her to our clinic to receive medical attention.

We came upon these three precious children bathing in a stream.

This man was severely burned when his house caught fire. Dr. Kevin Ward from Meridian, MS, a general surgeon who does wound care every Friday, worked with him for two hours and left him in much better shape.

We have been so burdened for the family of 12 that lives in this tiny mud hut. This week, a team from Lake, MS is building them a house!

Wonderful Worship
We continue to share the gospel, engage in worship, and reach out to those around us with the Good News.

Awesome time of worship a few weeks ago. We sang, heard testimonies, welcomed guests from far away, and I preached the Word of God.

These beautiful children from the orphanage sang, “I Have Decided to Follow Jesus,” in English. What a blessing!

We held VBS in the mountainous village of Thoman.

An exciting game of Duck, Duck, Goose took place at the end of VBS

From Mud Hut to Happy Home
Almost every week, Christian teams from America provide financing and help build a new home for a family living in very difficult circumstances. Since the first of March, nine new houses have been built. Below is the evolution of a new house.

This is the mud hut from which a family was moving.

Caring Clinic
We continue to meet the medical and dental needs of patients from miles and miles around. To date, over 24,000 patients have been seen.
