"I’ll Be Home For Christmas"

O Come All Ye Faithful family of mine to pick me up at the airport Caroling Caroling,Joy To The World” along the way because it is Christmas Time and  I’ll Be Home For Christmas  and spend even more than the Twelve Days of Christmas with you.  I Saw Three Ships, and considered a Sleigh Ride, which is dangerous because Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer.  Thus, I decided on an airplane which will arrive in the Little Town of Weyers Cave, Virginia at 10:52PM, earlier than last time when It Came Upon a Midnight Clear.  Some people may mistakenly Wonder As I Wander that Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, or even Jolly Old Saint Nicolas, but Go Tell it on The Mountain, it’s Tonton Noel (Creole for Uncle Christmas) who’s coming!  Some may even exclaim, “O Holy Night!  What Child Is This?”  Others may say, “It Must Have Been The Mistletoe”.  I know this will be a Christmas To Remember!

I don’t know what I will do If It Doesn't Snow On Christmas.  Last Christmas I was Dreaming Of A White Christmas, A Different Kind of Christmas, one showing films in Port-au-Prince.  All of ya’ll said, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas down there in Haiti”.  But this year it will be a Carolina Christmas, a Christmas In Dixie, Let it Snow!  This will be the First Noel I have spent with family in some years; so I can hear my mother say, “Merry Christmas Darling, I Miss You Most At Christmas!”  I must go to Virginia so I can have An Old Fashioned Christmas, otherwise, I'm Getting Nuttin' for Christmas.  I’ve started to think of All I want For Christmas...  I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday!  Truthfully, I Only Want You For Christmas, and that will make it a Holly Jolly Christmas, as we are Rocking Around the Christmas Tree.

It may be a Silent Night just sitting beside the Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire.  Just let me stay warm inside because outside it’s a Winter Wonderland.  I know you will Deck the Halls with Holly and the Ivy and get out the electric blanket because Baby It’s Cold Outside.

Some say, “I Believe in Santa Claus”, or question “What Child Is This?”, but let us sing together O Come, O Come, Emanuel because Christmas is really about Mary's Boy Child, Jesus, Away in a Manger.  Like the shepherds, Angels We Have Heard On High, which announce the Birthday of a King, “Happy Birthday Jesus”!  Or the Star Of Wonder, that guided the wise men to that Sweet Little Jesus Boy.  Joy to the World!

We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.  James 1:17 KJV

"Thank You" for White Wonder of God's Provision Video

I want to express a special "Thank You" to all of you that have helped make the "White Wonder of God's Provision" a reality!  Without your prayers and support this never would have happened!  Thanks for allowing God to use you in this special way! Please watch and enjoy this video showing the "White Wonder" in action as a special tribute to "you!"

The White Wonder of God's Provision

Last weekend we took a little trip (about 4 1/2 hours one way) to Maissade, to test out the White Wonder of God's Provision.  Yes, the vehicle has a temporary name now; until it earns something more suitable (or something shorter).  The trip included crossing the river after the tropical storm had passed through.  Everyone was surprised and amazed that we were still willing and able to come. We had a LOT of fun and the vehicle did GREAT!

Tomas and New Vehicle Work

Thanks to Tomas, we have had nice rain showers and cloudy weather for the past couple days.  We have had a few big thunderstorms too.  We are staying healthy, happy and mostly dry.

Tom Ames has been here since Wednesday, and we worked on the new vehicle the last two days.  So, what work do you need to do to a brand-new vehicle?  We've worked on the following...
  • Installed ARB Air Lockers in both front and rear differentials, including running the air lines and fixing leaks.
  • Replaced the suspension with heavy-duty suspension.  This included new ARB Dakar springs, shocks, shackles, pins, and steering stabalizer.
  • Finished the plumbing of the winch, installed the hydraulic filter, and tested it out.  I'm just about ready for some good mud!
  • Installed universal joint protectors in front and rear.
  • Installed skid-plate protecting the transfer-case and fuel tank.
Praise the Lord for the new vehicle and all of the upgrades we have been able to put on it.  Praise the Lord for Tom's willingness to help raise the funds, and help install the upgrades.

Tomorrow we plan to go to Maissade for the day to evaluate a church construction project.

Thanks for all your prayers!

Home from Vacation

I have safely returned from vacation.  I really had a wonderful time with my father.  We were able to go many places, and see many things.  We tourist-ed in the USA, Turkey and Israel.  My highlights would be...

  • Visiting some of the towns of the 7-Churches that received letters in the book of Revelations.
  • Experiencing new/different foods - Spinach filled donuts and sheep bowel soup
  • Trying to communicate - "I want a cup of coffee with cream and sugar."
  • The genuine helpfulness of the "Turkeys" (people who live in Turkey).
  • Seeing the Sea of Galilee
  • Hope School
  • The Western Wall - Jerusalem
  • Seeing the birthplace of my Savior - Bethlehem
  • Shelter Hostel and Fellowship in Christ
James and Dad in Ephesus (Turkey)
Now, I guess it's time to get back to work in the office and try to catch up!

On Vacation

So, are you wondering why I haven't been answering emails lately?  Well, It's because I've been traveling.  I've gone on vacation.  I should be with my dad in Istanbul, Turkey right about now.  We plan to head towards Izmir to visit some of the sites of the 7-Churches in Revelations.  In a few days, we'll head to Israel, with hopes to see everything!

The "New Girl"

Well, the "New Girl" has been commissioned for God's work ahead of her.  Brother Manno came over Sunday afternoon and we had a special commissioning service to dedicate the new vehicle to the Lord.  It consisted of prayer and the reading of several Psalms, one for me, the driver (Psalms 61), and several for the vehicle.  Some read at the front of the vehicle, and some from the rear.  May the Lord go before me, and behind me, and all around!

Manno and the "New Girl"
Saturday was spent working on the new vehicle.  Yes, it's brand new, with less than 100 miles on it, and I'm working on it already!  OK, so I wasn't fixing something that had broken.  Rather I was doing "plastic surgery", a face lift.  This "plastic surgery" involved removing the plastic bumper and replacing it with something worthy!  I had special ordered an ARB winch bar from Australia, through Washington state, through Miami.  It arrived in the hospital container a few weeks ago, and I had already mounted the winch in it.  ARB said the bumper would not work with a hydraulic winch, but everything has bolted up without modification!  The winch is a Mile Marker, 12,000 pound, hydraulic winch.  This should pull me out quick and effortlessly (including the turning of a few heads as folks watch).   The "Old Beast" had a 10,000 pound electric winch that frequently strained to get the job done.  It should be a breeze for this horse.  Watch out mud holes, here I come!

Her Face Lift
The winch bar came designed for the 70-Series Land Cruiser (this model), including a place to mount the winch.  But, it didn't have a provision for a receiver (hitch).  Some people want to use a front receiver for mounting a removable winch (like I did on the "Old Beast"), but for this vehicle, I wanted it to be able to carry a cargo basket in the front.  This adds a place to strap on an additional 350 pounds of cargo, that's not on the roof where it's top heavy.  Adding the receiver required minor modification to the winch bar, but nothing I couldn't do with a welder, grinder and a Sawzall.  I made this a priority since the vehicle didn't come with a roof rack as planned.  This way I'll be more capable to host the next team that visits if the roof rack hasn't arrived by then.

Winch Bar with Receiver Holding Cargo Basket
  I also started work to install the ARB Air Lockers.  I've got the interior work completed.  This involved mounting switches, shortening the wiring harness and routing it into place, and making electrical connections to ignition and dash lights.  I also mounted the air compressor, and connected the solenoids which control the air lockers.  I've also got an air hose to be able to put air in the tires.

The "New Girl" Looking More Worthy
What a blessing!  Thank you Lord for making it all possible!

Oh Happy Day!

Oh what a "Happy Day" it is! After more than a year, the new vehicle has finally arrived.  It's all that I have hoped and prayed for (almost).  It will be exceedingly more than what I could have asked or imagined once all the accessories get installed. It rides like a luxury car now, but my new springs should make it ride like a truck!
James in His New Vehicle

It's tight, quiet, powerful and fresh.  I heard the word "fresh" describing it several times today.  I think it was the fact that it was so clean.  It's even got the new car smell.

I want to extend a special "THANK YOU" to everyone who contributed to this project...
  • For those who had the vision and saw the need (and convinced me of the need).
  • For those who prayed for the need.
  • For those who put that vision into action, built a plan, and raised the funds.
  • For those who gave sacrificially towards this project.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!  Thanks for putting me in this new vehicle!  Praise the Lord for the great things he has done, and continues to do!

His New Vehicle at Home

Glad Tidings of Good News

It is after a wait of more than a year (from conception of the project) that I henceforth inform you that the long awaited new vehicle should be ready to be picked up on Thursday of this week!  I just got the news this afternoon!  A news that I've been waiting for for months.  It was scheduled to be delivered the end of July.  Because somehow they got confused on which vehicle was mine, they will be giving me another one, and ordering the luggage rack separately.  This added a few extra weeks to the delay, as they had to start the registration process again for the license plates to be in in my name.  Please praise the Lord with me, and pray that it truly will be ready when I go to get it on Thursday.

Off to South Africa

I plan to head out in ministry this weekend (unless it gets called off).  I plan to go to Fond-des-Blancs and show films.  I plan to spend Sunday night in Port-au-Prince, and catch a flight to New York on Monday.  Tuesday a long flight to Johannesburg, and Wednesday a short hop over to Cape Town.  I plan to attend the OpenMRS Implementers Meetings to be held at the Monkey Valley Beach Nature Resort.  I plan to return to the office on September 14th exhausted and jet-lagged, and ready to put into practice that which I learned at the conference.  I was privileged to attend the past two years, and it was certainly time well spent.  I expect this year will be equally beneficial.

Beautiful Ministry at Dos Pilon

Last weekend I was privileged to minister at the top of a mountain in the Central Plateau.  It was a wonderful time of ministry and to experience the love of our brothers and sisters in Christ!  We gained 4 new sisters in Christ there!

View From The Top Of The Mountain
Unfortunately my portable media player fried.  I preached instead of showing additional films the first night.  Everyone seemed satisfied, although we were all a little bit dissapointed.  Andre came and brought a DVD player the next night so the show could go on.

When I came home, I ordered a replacement portable media player, and it's nearly to Virginia, where my brother will hand-carry it into Haiti for me soon.

Pakistan Flood vs. Haiti Floods/Earthquake

I'd like to compare my thoughts on the differences between the floods in Pakistan and the floods and earthquake in Haiti.  My heart goes out to those that are currently suffering in Pakistan as a result of the recent flooding; the same as my heart goes out to those who continue to suffer from the earthquake here in Haiti.  What first got me thinking was a news report where a Pakistani peasant was interviewed.  They said, "We have lost everything". 

In 2004, there was a major flood in Haiti.  There was a tremendous loss of life and property in the Gonaives area which is the capital of our department (state), and only a few hours away from where I live.  At that time, I had no friends really that I knew in Gonaives.  Gonaives was considered the "scary/dangerous" city that you have to go through on the way to the North of Haiti.  At that time Gonaives was known for their violence and trouble makers.  Just a few months earlier, there as a coup d'état (government overthrow) started by the rebels in Gonaives.  I wonder if this flood was not allowed/sent as punishment by God, or as a cleansing of the violence in the city.  Since this flood, Gonaives has no longer been the "hot-spot" that it was previously!  After this flood, I developed good friends in the cleanup effort, and have ministered regularly in Gonaives since then.

Gonaive Orphanage Kids Rescue During Flood

In 2008, there was another major flood, triggered by a series of three hurricanes.   Again, Gonaives was hit hardest.  This flood was a huge blow to the country.   We were completely cut-off from the rest of Haiti by bridges that were washed out or damaged at Montrouis, Mirebalais, and Ennery.  This made relief efforts much more difficult.  I was able to make several trips to Gonaives, even in the middle of the hurricanes, to assess the situation and provide a little bit of assistance.  I even got to be a part of a rescue mission for missionaries and an orphanage, driving through deep water to get supplies to them, and later to extract them.  Although the loss of life was less than the previous catastrophe just four years earlier, the damage was far worse. I have personal friends who told how God spared their lives though they lost all of their earthly possessions.  Jesus Christ has been their hope and strength to put their lives back together! 

Initial Tent City in Port-au-Prince with Tents Made of Sheets

On January 12, 2010, at nearly 5PM, there was a major earthquake that rocked the Port-au-Prince area. The loss of life and damage was enormous!  Even through the news did a fair job of reporting the situation they could not convey the actual situation.  Images were shown of damaged or destroyed buildings, and smashed cars, and people living under tents made out of bed sheets.  They could not convey the smell of rotting human flesh, telling of the lives that were lost under the collapsed buildings.  Even during this crisis, the people of Haiti have pulled together and drawn closer to Christ!  A national fast was called in place of the sinful festivities of the Kanaval holiday.  Evenings were filled with singing of praise and prayers to God. 

 Evangelistic Films in Front of National Palace During Carnival

On the six-month anniversary after the quake, news reporters again reported how bad the situation was and how little cleanup work was done, and how bad things were here.  One report clearly told the story of the Haitians hope being grounded in their God.  Jesus Christ has been their hope and strength to put their lives back together!

Although all Haitians lost family or friends in the earthquake, and many have lost all of their earthly possessions, they have not lost everything! They still have their faith in Christ which continues to daily carry them through the situation and into the unknown future.  Please continue to pray for Haiti to put their faith more and more in Christ as their Savior!

Please join me in prayer for the people of Pakistan, that the flood will allow them to meet this same Christ that has been the hope of Haiti in recent times of crisis.  Although many in Pakistan have lost all of their earthly possessions, pray that they would be able to say they still have Jesus!

Well Drill All Fixed Up

Well, today will be the final test of the well drill truck, as we attempt to take it to St Marc (and beyond) for an inspection for the renewal/transfer of insurance.  Thanks for your prayers!

Well Rig Team Update

Sunday was an exciting day of worshiping with the people of Deschappelles.  This photo illustrates a crowd of people waiting anxiously for the sun to set low enough to see James' films Le Combat and True Security on the projector screen we set up.  The evening was perfect for drawing a large group of people in the make-shift outdoor theatre.  The evening was spent together watching films about Jesus and His teachings.  The space was full of eager excitement- many people even assembled in the streets. 

People Waiting to Start the Films

We estimated that 350 people were in attendance to hear the message.  During an intermission between the films, Joe gave a short sermon.  During this time, 20-30 people came to the front of the audience and committed their lives to Christ.  It was an electrifying!

Well Drill Repair

One of the objectives of our time here was to do significant work on a well drilling rig, which upon its restoration to the fine running machine it once was, will be used to provide fresh artesian water to people in Haitian refugee camps.  Joe, James, Michael, some nice folks from HAS, and I were able to get a lot accomplished.  In this photo, James is grinding a gear off of a shaft that is the beginning of the intricate system of gears that help to operate the rig.  Joe is providing support by keeping the gear assembly stationary.  In addition to the getting several gears changed or re-worked, were were able to get the brakes working properly.  Turn signals were also installed (Michael noted that they stand out because they're obviously new- and on a 1960's model truck).  We were able to make lots of progress on the rig this week.  With a few more hours of love and sweat, it should be working like a top!

Well Drill Progress

The guys (Joe and team) continue to work on the well drill.  They have made several significant strides forward.  They have...

1.) Got the engine in the truck running
2.) Got the engine on the well drill running
3.) Replaced some gears and bushing on the well drill (the ones to raise the mast)
4.) Straightened a mast support arm
5.) Rebuilt the truck brake master cylinder
6.) Went to St Marc and bought brake lines, turn signals and filters
7.) HAS found the original paperwork for the well drill truck (Good news; it was marked as private, and perhaps we won't have to pay the initial tax from importing it.)
8.) Got a letter of sale from the Hospital Albert Schweitzer business office
9.) Got the key for the truck
10.) Swam in the pool

They are working on the following...
1.) Replacing the brake flex lines on the truck
2.) Starting to renew/transfer the truck paperwork (Joe went to St Marc this morning)
3.) Cleaning the diesel fuel filter and fresh diesel fuel to diagnose/solve why the engine cut off yesterday

This afternoon we plan to meet up with Pastor Rodrique to go to a church across the river to show films.  This is not Delonye, but another place.  We will go via Pointe Sonde.

Thanks for your continued prayers and encouragement.

Haitian Auto-Garage (Joe working on the brake master cylinder)


We arrived here in Haiti on Wednesday, July 21 and our adventure began in P-AU-P where we met one of Joe's buddies to take us to his jeep. After we finally got the jeep running we went into town and began shopping for needed supplies for the well drilling rig and some groceries for when we got to James' house. I got to experience how money is exchanged in Haiti by watching Joe find a guy on the street while we were in the back of a truck ridding through town. I'm not sure what happened but Joe was not pleased with what the first guy had to offer so he found another man that gave him more for his money. After we had our supplies we began our 4 hour trip through the country and over the mountain to Hospital Albert Schweitzer (HAS) and where James' home is close by. About half way up the mountain we noticed we had gotten a flat tire and had to pull off the road to put on the spare. While we were fixing it a near by family came out to inspect what our problem was and to try and help us. The people were very friendly and very helpful. Joe thought it would be funny to get me and Micah involved with the people so he told the oldest boy there, who knew a little English to arm wrestle me. Well he was fairly strong but not strong enough and I beat him, but after I had beaten him, his father wanted to challenge me. At first i was like "oh great, this should be fun" but I thought I would give it a shot and so I beat him too. After we had gotten to James' it was late so we just had dinner sat around for a bit then called it a night. On our 2nd day we got a tour of HAS and spoke with the director, Ian. Joe got some news that he wasn't planning on getting, but it was still good and so we worked on the rig most of the day, and once we had done what we could that day, we ended it like day 1 with a good dinner and some much needed rest.

Visitors have landed

I'm looking forward to a few visitors this next week.  It consists of my brother Joe and his two helpers.  VMM Haiti PMG is buying a well drill from Hospital Albert Schweitzer (HAS).  Joe and crew are coming to recondition this old well drill.

I talked to Joe earlier today and they have arrived in Port-au-Prince, and got his Trooper running.  They plan to come out to my house tonight.

Films in Bombardopolis

I returned yesterday from a long weekend trip (starting Thursday) to the far North West of Haiti.

I got to see some beautiful sites.  This included the mountains and the sea.  And the nine people that gave their lives to Christ, and the two people that rededicated their lives.


It was a long and tiring drive.  Everything went well on the 8 hour drive (one way) of about 100 miles.  The old truck made the trip without hesitation!  It even drove down to La Platforme (where my brother Joe used to live).  This was the first time I ever drove there.  They have just built a new road, and I needed to try it out.  I am praying this will be the last long trip for the old Beast.

Please pray the new vehicle arrives as planned (probably early August), and the accessories also finish showing up about the same time.

Dubreuil Spring Capping Project

If you noticed my reply to email was slow the past couple weeks, let me simply say I was having fun with teams.  It truly was a blessing to have my dad and mom come for a visit to Haiti.  That was followed by a team from Fellowship Bible Church in Longview, TX. 

The first challenge of the trip was getting the materials on-site.  I decided to go up two days before the team so I could take it slow with a HEAVY load of pipe, and then go make sure all of the other materials and last minute details of preparation were already taken care of before the team's arrival.  Thursday was a national holiday so it make it convenient to take the extra time for these tasks.  The team arrived according to plan (a few hours later than expected) on Saturday.

Unloading the Pipe

The main goal of the Dubreuil team was to cap a spring and pipe the water down to the village.  This was a monster task that God saw through to completion ahead of schedule.  Monday was the first work day, and we got the old spring caps tied together (with provision for the new spring cap to connect), and water running down into the old cistern.

The remaining days included finishing the new spring cap, and connecting it into the system, running the pipe the rest of the way to the village, digging, more digging, and then some more digging to run the pipe.  We also got the old shower house and sinks and water fountains all working.  This included some major work to unplug the drains, and some of the old water supply pipes too.  You would be surprised what makes it into pipes to plug them up.

The secondary goal of the team was to have a marriage seminar, and VBS for the children, and to participate in revival services each evening.  It was a fun and busy time for all!

Thanks for your prayers for that project.  Know that God was listening and answered without hesitation.

Out on the lake at Roche Mulatre

I had a marvelous time at Roche Mulatre this past weekend.  I drove to Peligre, and parked the truck.  Then we got in a little motor boat, and crossed the lake with the film equipment.  Then we loaded the film equipment into a dugout log.  The folks from the church paddled the log up the river fighting the current.  Those of us that could walk, hiked over the mountain to Roche Mulatre.  Because the rains are late coming this year, the lake was very low, and just a river at some places.

On Saturday morning I hiked over the mountain towards Las Calbase. It was a hot, grueling, sunny, scenic hike.  I went along with some friends to meet Brother Andre.  Because the lake was low, they had him hike in this way.  Normally he would have come up on a motor boat and/or log.


James on the Top of the Mountain With the Dry Lake in the Background

We showed films on Friday night, Saturday afternoon for the kids, and Saturday night.  On Saturday night after films I taught some of them how to play “Capture the Flag.”  It was fun, except the Haitian variety of the game involves throwing rocks.  Fortunately nobody was hurt!

On Sunday, when we left Roche Mulatre, I decided to attempt swimming/floating down the river rather than climbing over the mountain.  It was a daring venture.  The scary part was getting out into the river.  It required crawling through deep mud for about 30 feet.  I was afraid I was going to get stuck a couple times.  Fortunately I made it through to the river.  I was exhausted by then.  After that I floated and swam (when I had enough energy) down the river.  I must have gone a kilometer.  I couldn’t go ashore because of all the mud along the bank.  I went down far enough and there was eventually a rock sticking out in the water, and I was able to climb up it, and catch the foot trail the rest of the way.  Had I got in trouble, the dugout log was coming behind me, and I could maybe have caught a ride.

I’m looking forward to the arrival of some very special folks coming.  My mom and dad are scheduled to arrive here this Friday.  I’m really looking forward to their time here.  It’s been a long time since they have been to Haiti!  My brother Joe and some other friends will be along, but will go their separate directions shortly thereafter.

Thanks again for your continued prayers!  God is listening!

Team Updates

I've occupied my time recently with two teams; a big, long one and a little, short one.  The big, long team was made up of six women from Canada.  They came to present a woman's conference for the Oasis of Faith Christian Church and the Artibonite/Plato Central VMM churches.  There were nearly 100 women present at the conference, including some ladies from the local area.  The meetings were held in Deschapelles at the La Foi Apostolik church.  The craft/skill portion of the conference this year was sewing.  They split the group into two and simultaneously taught one group how to do embroidery and the other group was taught how to sew using hand-crank sewing machines. 

 Mme Alberoi Learning How To Sew

The foreign ladies camped out at my house.  They even decorated my house, including special ornaments; like sweaty bras hung to dry.  I joked with the Haitian pastors that I would give them the easy job, of hosting the 100 Haitian ladies, and I would do the hard job of hosting the 6 foreigners.  It was a challenging and fun time at the bachelor pad.


James Having Lunch With The Woman's Team


The second and shorter, smaller team was made up of Mike and Linwood from Virginia.  They came to visit with me this past weekend.  The hospital provided transportation out to HAS and back to Port-au-Prince again, taking an additional responsibility off of my hands.  They arrived on Friday evening, and left this morning.  On Saturday they helped me weld my winch bracket back in place that had broken while getting unstuck during the ladies team after a big truck ran me into the ditch.  While I was welding the bracket back in place, I accidentally struck the radiator with the back of the welding torch, where the plastic insulation was broken off.  This burn a whole in the radiator and the water leaked out.  We soldered it the best we could, and then put a JB Weld blow-out patch over the hole.  It held together for going to show films that night, and will hopefully last many more miles too.  On Sunday we went to the local church, rested and went swimming in the hospital pool.  In my opinion it's still a little too cold for swimming, but they thought it was perfect temperature!


Thanks for your continued prayers!  Know that God is listening!

Seth Hodge leaves early

Seth Ryan Hodge, 17, of Love, went to be with his Lord and Savior, with who he had a personal relationship, on Saturday, March 6, 2010, as a result of an automobile accident.

Seth and his dad (Mark) were planning to come help me out in Haiti this summer, thus, the family has suggested, in lieu of flowers, that memorial contributions be made to the Haiti Relief Fund, c/o Mountain View Mennonite Church, P.O. Box 208, Lyndhurst, VA 22952. These funds will be used towards the replacement vehicle.

See the complete obituary at the News Virginian.

New 2010 Land Cruiser HZJ78L-RJMRS Ordered

I placed the down payment on the new Land Cruiser last Saturday. The new vehicle will cost $65,000 including all customizations, taxes and fees. We figure we're about half-way there on our fund-raising.  Although I've given the down payment, that doesn't mean I'm driving it yet.  What that does mean is that Toyota is building it and shipping it to Haiti.  It should be here and ready for me by August.  We have until August to raise the additional funds to complete the purchase.

Haiti Eyes - by Karen Treacy (Member of Medical Team # 1)

    Haiti is eyes.  Red eyes from the smoke and dust that hangs in the air.  Worried eyes that swivel constantly to check on their remaining family.  Weary eyes of people trying to sleep on the concrete pavement, on streets where there is neither quiet nor rest.  Eyes yellow from disease, eyes that don’t focus, needing glasses they will never have.

    Haiti is hands.  Shy children’s hands reaching to touch my white skin and strange hair.  Hands swinging sledge hammers, salvaging expensive rebar out of chunks of rubble.  Hands reaching to beg as we pause briefly before entering the maelstrom of traffic.  Hands sorting through debris, collecting small broken items, clinging to the delusion that they can piece their world back together, frozen and unable to think beyond the moment.

    Haiti is broken.  Broken buildings, roofs draped like a shroud over unimaginable fragments, concealing the sights but not the smells.  Floors collapsed like a stack of pancakes, roofs tilted at impossible angles.  Gateways standing incongruously in the middle of their walls, Jericho walls, lying flat and broken.  Hoods of broken cars nose out of their concrete cocoons, tires already stripped and everything, everywhere the gray of powdered lime, cement breaking down to its elements.  Broken neighborhoods, where not one house is left undamaged, not one family left intact.

    Haiti is cacophony.  Half a dozen vehicles trying to drive side by side on a two lane road, peppered with horns, sirens, and shouts.  Destruction on an immense scale, a visual barrage, yet each demolished structure is a family’s personal disaster.  Haiti is a mob of people crowding around a clinic table, shouting to be seen.  Haiti is military at road intersections, each in a different uniform.  Haiti is tap-taps, bus-cabs painted in brilliant colors, each one unique, all crowded to the roof lines.  Tent cities, acres of sheets and tarps, a kaleidoscope of materials, but all small, crowded, inadequate.

    Haiti is wounds.  Infected, gangrenous wounds, signaling the death of a limb.  Wounded earth, where dry avalanches slip down a desiccated hillside to a parched river bed.  Even the tombs are gashed open and gaping, not to give up their dead but to receive more and more.  Cuts and gouges, healing on the outside, raw and bleeding within.

    Haiti is eyes.  Frustrated eyes, when I cannot understand their Creole nor they my English.  Grateful eyes when we finally communicate and can offer help.  Bright peeping eyes of children, ducking and giggling when they spy me watching them.  Friendly eyes when we greet them in bungled Creole, averted eyes on the ones who have lost hope along with the world they knew.

Dr Hatter's Medical Team and Joe Depart

The final medical team that was here to assist after the earthquake crisis is waiting for their delayed flight at the Port-au-Prince airport.  They have packed up left over supplies for storage for the next medical team.  It sounds like they all had a really good time.

After several weeks, Joe (my brother) is also departing Haiti.  It was a lot of fun working together here!  I look forward to his future return; for short or long term.

I plan to go to Port-au-Prince tomorrow to finish packing up the team house and pick up my film equipment and truck.  I plan to return to my normal rural film showing schedule. I'm anxious to see if folks will be extra open to the Gospel in the countryside like they were in the city.

James Safely Home

I've safely returned home after a long and tiring trip to Texas.  I had a wonderful time, and was able to give folks there a real glimpse of what it's like here in Haiti.  I left my truck with the medical team, and hope to go pick it up this weekend.

The current medical team (Dr Hatter's) is doing OK.  Joe was feeling sick today, and slept most of the day.  He was up and at the airport to meet me when I arrived though!

Medical team update-Very productive days

We have had two days of clinic now, and just figured out how to update the blog (James isn't here to babysit us). We saw 135 patients yesterday, and 131 today. About 5-10% are earthquake related conditions, with the rest being "business as usual". In the spirit of Christ, we have been able to minister to body and spirit.
We are all healthy, and getting along well. Except for insect bites, there have been no maladies on the team. And, we saw American Airlines flying out today! Virginia Mennonite Missions switched so that we could fly out of Port Au Prince next week, so it was a welcome sound and sight to see and hear that jet taking off!
We are all very blessed to be in service here to God's people, the Haitians. We look forward to the work days ahead. Thank you for your prayers!

James to Santo Domingo

I´m safely to Santo Domingo. I´ve checked into the Hotel Don Bien Eme. (They took the sign down so my spelling might be off.) I´ve got a nice private room with my own toilet and water spigot. Pretty nice for 250 pesos. I´ve got a taxi driver scheduled for tomorrow morning at 5AM to take me to the airport for $20 US.

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Medical team arrival

We left Santo Domingo sharply (almost, but close enough) at 10 am, and arrived in Port Au Prince at about 4:20 pm. The trip was long but pretty comfortable, and we were picked up by Joe and John. We have spent the evening getting settled in at the guest house, and will get to work tomorrow.
I think we all expected to to see immediate devestation as soon as we arrived, but it hasn't been that way. We have seen buildings damaged and down, but we won't see the brunt of the damage until traveling farther in. Life here seems like it is compensating for the disaster. Traffic is moving, places are open, and people are living.

Home from Airport

After waiting several hours, and them taking passengers before and after me in the line, they finally came and said there were no more seats on tonights plane.  I plan to travel to the Dominican Republic via public bus early tomorrow morning, and hope to catch a flight from Santo Domingo to the United States.

Off to the Airport

I'm off to the airport in Port-au-Prince.  I checked this morning and there is a chance that I can get on a US military humanitarian evaquation flight.  They said it could leave anytime between 5 and 10 PM.  They don't know where it's to arrive in the US yet.  I'll post more news when I know more; probaby on the other side of the sea.  I'm planning to go to Texas to the Fellowship Bible Church World Outreach Weekend.

Kurt's Ministry Team

We had an awesome time of ministry with Kurt's team. We showed films all over Port-au-Prince.  We also showed films a couple nights in the surrounding areas.  Last night was a historic moment!  Actually this whole past week has been a historic time for this country.  It started by three days of national fast.  The majority of Haitians humbled themselves and prayed and worshiped God during this time.  The second monumental event was our ability to show films at Champ de Mars, right in front of the crumpled national palace.  What made this even extremely extraordinary was the night that we were able to show films and preach there.  It was during Carnival.  This is a holiday which typically involves loud bands, alcohol and sex.  The Champ Mars area is generally full of these activities on Carnival.  Not this year.  God has changed the sinful traditions of Carnival into a day of fasts and film showing in front of the National Palace.  There were hundreds of people that were present and received a touch from the Lord!

 Preaching and Film in front of the National Palace

I dropped off Kurt's team at the bus station this morning.  They are traveling via Capital Coach Lines to Santo Domingo.  They should arrive at 4:00PM Dominican Republic time.

Ministry Team Update

Well everyone slept super well last night with an emphasis on "well" as they dug a well yesterday to at least 16 ft. They were exhausted an quite a sight. We women did the Haitian thing and sat in the shade. We walked the village to advertise the film to be shown in the evening and the people were curious about us. As the evening drew near some guys kept digging and the rest of us set up the movie. We have learned to be good "roadies" working together with help from the Haitians. Everyone seemed to raise their hands when Salik invited them to come and pray. It was a wonderful evening under the makers stars with a nice (strong at times) wind. We had military rations for dinner and we all attest to the fact that our soldiers eat pretty well. We all enjoyed the variety. It was fun! Today we head out to Leogane where we will "play it again Sam" this has been so rewarding. Is it not just like our Lord to send us to bless others and then just bless greatly? Our God is an AWESOME God! He is in control. Pease keep praying people are being renewed and refreshed. We are all well and can't wait to share more when we get home. In His Perfect Will, Janice

Medical Team Update 2/13/10

Yesterday was the last clinic for our team. It was a meaningful day for all of us, as it was the one month anniversary of the earthquake. The Haitians responded to a governmental call to fasting and prayer, so we were not as busy as we had been. However, we were very glad that God had us in that place at that time; one of our young patients, a 10 year old boy named Lucas was being physically abused by his adoptive father, and one of the triage nurses discovered physical evidence of this abuse. We called together the pastor and several community leaders, along with Joe, and were able to put a protective plan in place for him and his sisters. The community leaders will be checking on this family regularly and we are hopeful that this will prevent future abuse. We also went downtown near the fallen palace to commemorate the anniversary with the Haitians. They had a large prayer and worship event with thousands gathered in the streets, and we were surrounded by voices praising God. Even though we didn't understand the words, the hope and passion in the voices was tremendously humbling and inspiring. Today, we are organizing and restocking medicines and supplies for the next team. We can't believe our two weeks is almost finished- we hope and pray the next team has as moving an experience here as we have. So often we engage in missions work expecting those we serve to be most changed, and yet so often, we are the ones truly blessed.

Medical Team 2 Update: (By Micah)

Medical clinics continue to be well recieved in the communities that we visit. Many of these communities have recieved no medical care since the earthquake, and they are very thankful to have the opportunity to see a doctor. We continue to improvise as needed - yesterday, we went out expecting to be working in an established hospital in Bon Repos, and ended up a mile or two from there under the trees. Working here demands a high level of flexibility, but we are happy to be used where most needed. We are headed out to Bon Repos again today, as there seemed to be great need, and will set up (hopefully) in a church building there. The health of the team is holding steady - other than some coughing due to dust and pollution, and minor gastrointestinal upset here and there, we are all in good health and good spirits. We are praising God for his provision and strength! We are also eagerly anticipating cool sheets and hot showers upon our return to the states. We all miss our families terribly, but are thankful for the new friends God has given us, both Haitian and American.

Kurt's Ministry Team Update

This morning as I listened to the medical team leave for the day and hearing their laughter and seeing the unity of their spirits, made me realize that though they came to bless others, they themselves are also being blessed with joy. And so are we! Last night, we had the privilege of ministering in Carrefour. We set up the film screen in the middle of the street with damaged buildings on either side. People were carrying on their everyday lives right where we set up. They actually had church pews that they pulled onto the street to sit on, resembling an outdoor theater. There were at least 200 people there under a beautiful, clear, starry night. Fifty percent were children! The neighborhood seemed a little tougher and more secluded than some of our previous places. They seemed to have had less exposure to the gospel. There was a group of young guys asking many questions about God and the Bible. It was a good night. Continue to pray for the Haitian people as all have been affected by the earthquake and they are hungry for the truth of God.

Medical Team #2 Update

We spent yesterday in a tent city that has received very little, if any, aid. There was very little clean water available for the inhabitants. We gave out a lot of rehydration salts with clean water for babies and kids that were dehydrated. We continue to appreciate our nights where we can process and take a deep breath.  Keep praying!

Kurt’s Ministry Team Update

Cite Militaire – Last night we were honored to spend time showing the films to around 200 people in this area.  Of course the audience loved pastor Alberois performance, at times laughing and at other times becoming very quiet and serious.

The medical team has been very busy but they are holding up well.
We had a team member who needed a small surgery due to a cyst on her tailbone. She is doing fine and your prayers will be appreciated.
James vehicle is doing fine even though it really is on it's last leg. We hear God is going to bless him with a new one!
I have to say that this is a very organized team group. James and Joe really know what they are doing. It is in times such as this that we get to see all of their hard work paying off.
Tonight we will be showing the films in Carrefour. It is so exciting to anticipate what God will do there. He has answered so many prayers already and we just keep asking for more.


Day 7 here in Haiti is going to be a blessing for this team and to those who are reaching out for more than crumbs. We can feast at the table with Him and that kind of food goes a long way.


In His Love,
Janice and Team

Medical Team # 2 Update

We returned last night from a couple days in Leogane, an area along the coast. We spent the night in a field, and the stars were amazing. Our VMM Haiti Program Management Group (PMG) pastor friend Enoch hosted us.  He is a dear, long time member of our mission direction committee whose house was destroyed. The first day we held a small clinic for his village/community.  We took care of several patients who had lost children in the quake, which was heartbreaking. That evening, we went to New Mission on the coast a couple of miles away and picked up food and water rations and face masks. Yesterday, we worked outside of a tent city nearby and held clinic for most of the day- we were fortunate to have some shade from trees. The truck’s axle broke, but Joe managed to get it fixed quickly, and pastor Enoch rented a tap-tap (taxi) and we caravanned for the couple of hours back home. In spite of the heat, we are doing well and greatly appreciate your prayer support.

Ministry Team Update

Last night we were awestruck by God as he showed us the people of Haiti and the hearts that are yearning for healing and restoration. We laid hands on the sick, encouraged those who were mourning the loss of family and presented Christ with 3of James films.Salik preached with LOVE and Authority and the Holy Spirit brought heaven to earth with new believers making life changing decisions.
Tent city was a perfect place for Jesus to walk and call people to himself. Being there was one of the most exciting things I have ever done. These are good people and God is a good God.
In His Love,
Janice

Medical Team # 2 - Update

It's another busy clinic day.  Please remember to pray for Medical Team # 2 as they take care of the aches and pains of the displaced earthquake refugees.

Medical Team 2 Update

Greetings from Port au Prince! Just a quick note to say that we are doing well- we are all healthy, and really appreciating that we can process and pray through what we are seeing together. We worked in a tent city of 30,000 people on Saturday, and saw about 200 patients in the hours that we were there. We enjoyed church yesterday. We will be working in a village near Leogane today and then another tent city tomorrow. It is fulfilling work and we are working well together as a medical team. Thanks for your prayers!!

Mizik op jwe.
stasyon radyo a
Repantans lan se yon vwè chanjman nan fason yon moun panse ou byen chanjman ki fèt nan kè ak atitid yon moun kapab genyen devan peche. Li se kote moun nan kap pran yon desizyon pou kite peche. Kounye a nou pral konsidere 4 gran prensip pou genyen yon vwè repantans: 
1) Moun nan dwe tris oubyen regrèt davan Bondye akoz peche a. 2 Kor 7:9-11; 9-11; "Men kounyeya, kè m kontan, pa paskemwen te fè nou lapenn, men paske lapenn nou te
genyen an te fè nou chanje kondit. Nou te sipòte lapenn sa a jan Bondye vle l la. Se konsa mwen pa fè nou okenn mal. Paske, lè yon moun sipòte lapenn li jan Bondye vle l la, sa change kè li pou l
ka rive sove. Pa gen anyen la a pou n regrèt. Men, lapenn sou sipòte jan tout moun fè l la, se touye l'ap touye nou. Nou menm, nou sipòte lapenn nou an jan Bondye vle l la. Kounyeya, gade sa l fè pou nou! Gade ki jan li fè nou pran sitirasyon an pou bagay serye! Gade ak ki lanpresman nou sòti pou defann tèt nou? Gade jann te fache! Gade jan n te pè! Gade jan nou anvi wè m ankò! Gade jan nou aktif, jan nou prese pini moun ki te fè sa ki mal la! Nou mountre nou pat koupab nan tout bagay sa yo."

2) Li dwe konfese peche a. Sòm 32: 1-5; "Se yon kantik David. Ala bon sa bon pou yon moun lè Bondye pa gade sou fòt li fè, lè Bondye padonnen peche l' yo! Ala bon sa bon pou yon moun lè Seyè a pa mande l' kont pou sa li fè ki mal, lè li
pa gen okenn lide twonpe Bondye! Ala bon sa bon pou yon moun lè Seyè a pa mande l' kont pou sa li fè ki mal, lè li pa gen okenn lide twonpe Bondye! Lajounen kou lannwit ou t'ap kale m', Seyè. Mwen fin rann tout ji mwen, tankou tè sèk nan sezon chalè. Lè sa a, mwen rekonèt peche m' yo devan ou, mwen pa t' kache ou sa m' te fè ki mal. Mwen di: M'ap rakonte Seyè a tout bagay. Apre sa, ou te padonnen tout peche m' yo." 
1 Jn 1:9; "Men, si nou rekonèt devan Bondye nou fè peche, nou mèt gen konfyans nan li. Paske l'ap fè sak gen pou fèt la: la padonnen tout peche nou yo, la netwaye nou anba tou sa ki mal."

3) Li dwe renonse ak peche a. Pr 28:13; "Moun k'ap kache peche p'ap janm wè zafè yo mache. Men, Bondye va gen pitye pou moun ki rekonèt peche yo, pou moun ki chanje lavi yo."

4) Li dwe gen Èn pou peche a. Pwovèb 8:13; "Lè yon moun gen krentif pou Bondye, li rayi sa ki mal. Mwen pa vle wè moun lògey ak moun awogan, moun ki gen move kondit ak moun k'ap bay manti."

Rezilta se padon nan men Bondye. Frèm ak Sèm yo, nou tout ki ta renmen mennen yon vwè vi ak Senyè a, nou dwe mete kat pwen sa yo an aplikasyon. Se la nou mete fen ak emisyon sa pou jodi a ke Bondye beni nou tout ki tap koutem nan moman sa.
Mizik komanse jwe anko.
fritznel
Mèsi Bondye pou Pawòl ou, mèsi paske ou fèm konnen kisa repantans lan ye jodi a, mwen rekonèt mwen te peche kont ou, mwen rekonèt m'te fèw anpil mal nan vim, epi mwen rekonèt mwen te peche kont frè Jose padonem, banm fòs poum mennen vwè vi a, mwen priye'w pou bay frè Jose sajès pou'l padone'm tou, montren kòman pou'm fè pou'm remèt li tout bagay mwen vòlè la kay li yo. Fèm mache ak ou, kenbe'm sou chemen an, mwen priye'w nan non Jezi.

Jose esplike Fritnel ki jan lavil te ye avan li te resevwa Jezi. Li pataje rèv li te fè, kote vòlè te tirel epi li te mouri li te ale devan Bondye epi li te voye'l nan lanfè. Nap montre yon ti mòso nan fim "Vrè Sekirite a" pandan Jose ap pale. Fritznel di Jose se li ki te kase kay li a, epi pati ak tout bagay. Jose fache. Josette eseye kalme Papa'l.
          
FRITZNEL
Kòmanw ye frèm? Poukisa ou lage'm konsa? Jodi a mwen kontan poum wèw epi pale avèk ou.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Bondye beni'w frèm, kòman'w ye? Sa fè lontan depi nou pa wè. Ki pwogrè ou fè nan Kris la? Ou an fòm?
Josette ap antre pandan yo pale.
josette
Bonjou, mwen swetew byen vini la kay nou.
Fritznel
Bonjou ti zanmi, ou byen?
FRITZNEL
Mwen papi mal; mwen la. MM! Mwen pa
bliye jou ou te pèmèt mwen jwenn Kris kòm sovè epi mèt mwen, monchè, li se yon vrè sekirite pou la vim. Mwen konprann mennen yon vi nan Kris se yon sakrifis.

JOSETTE
Mwen kontan ou aksepte Kris. Se vre ganyen anpil sakrifis nan la vi kretyen men, genyen rekonpanse an plis.
Josette deplase.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Mwen kontan ou vini lakay mwen jodi a, epi se yon okazyon pou mwen, pou'm baw yon ti istwa de vi'm avan mwen te resevra Jezi. Bon, Mwen se yon filozof, mwen pat kwè nan oken bagay de Bondye, mwen te kwè nan bèl machin, bèl kay, bèl fanm; mwen te toujou di Jezi'm se te tout byen materyèl ki te la kay mwen yo epi tout bèl konesans mwen yo.
fritznel
Men, ki kòman ou te resevwa Jezi kòm sovè?
JOSE FRANCOIS
Bon, fòm di'w ke madanm mwen te toujou pale'm de li, men mwen te konn joure madanm mwen pou sa. Yon jou pandan mwen tap dòmi, mwen te wè vòlè ki tap eseye antre la kay la pou te pran kèk bagay ki te rete. Mwen wè mwen te pran zam mwen pou'm te touye'l, malerezman, madanm mwen te viktim anba bal epi mwen te viktim tou. Yon ti tan aprè, mwen menm ak madanm mwen, nou te wè nou devan Bondye, e li te poze nou kesyon yonn aprè lòt, li te swete madanm mwen byen vini la kay Papa'l, madanm mwen te kontan anpil.  Lè li te rive sou mwen, li te mande'm pou'm idantifye'm, men mwen pat kapab paske mwen pat genyen Jezi kòm sovè'm, e li te dim se lè pal ki rive,pa gen chans pou mwen, epi li te voye'm nan dife san fen an.
fritznel
Tout bagay sa ki te rive'w? E aprè kisa ki te pasew nan dòmi an?
JOSE FRANCOIS
Zyem te vin klè, mwen te wè se te nan rèv mwen te ye. Mwen te konnen  mwen te genyen pou jwenn Jezi, e mwen te kouri bay Jezi la vi'm.
fritznel
M! Ou te gen chans anpil, e mwen wè ou te entèlijan. Epi konsa'w vin chanje? Gen lè Bondye pa gen parèy vrè?
JOSE FRANCOIS
Wi, sa'l ye a, se sa'l ye vre. Tankou lanmou'l pou tout moun ki kwè nan li se menm jan tou pèsonn paka kanpe devan kòlè ak chatiman Bondye, lèl vle frape yon moun ki pa soumèt devan li.
fritznel
Frè'm, mwen santi fòk mwen diw yon bagay avan m'ale.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Ou met di'm sa ou vle di'm, frè'm.
Fritznel
Mwen se yonn nan moun ki te kase kay ou a, ki te pran tout bagay ak bèl machin ou an.
Jose leve kanpe kotel te chita epi li frape pyel.               
JOSE FRANCOIS
Kisa ou di la? Ou se yonn nan vòle ki te kase kay mwen an? Nan ki bagay m'pran la. Gade avan'm kontinye pale, kisa ou pral fè pou'm jwenn bagay mwen yo? Fè jan'w konnen poum jwenn tout bagay mwen yo, si tou, machin mwen an.
fritznel
Frè Jose, mwen pa gen pwoblèm avèk ou. Fòk ou konnen nou te gen tan vann pifò nan bagay yo. Mwen pral fè tout sak depann de mwen poum fèw jwenn machin ou an, menm sim ta gen poum mouri pousa mwen pap gen pwoblèm. Epi tou sim ta mouri sa pap fèm anyen, paske mwen gen yon kote 'm prale.
Fritznel deplase al la kay li.
Jose fè yon bwi. Josette antre.
JOSETTE
Papa poukisa'w fache konsa?
JOSE FRANCOIS
Se Fritznel ki te vòle afe nou a!
JOSETTE
Ou konnen li pa fasil pou yon moun ki fè mal deklare tout sal fè yo. Sil ka diw sa se paske Bondye chanje kè'l. Tankou Manmanm te aprann mwen yon lè, nou dwe padone moun ki fè nou mal jan Bondye mande'l la. Papa ou mèt gade nan Matye 6 V 12 ak 14 wa wè sa Bondye di.
Josette deplase al regle zafèl.
Jose pran bib li pou li.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Matye 6:12 "Padonnen tout sa nou fè ki mal, menm jan nou padonnen moun ki fè nou mal." Vèsè 14: "Si nou padonnen moun lè yo fè nou mal, Papa nou ki nan syèl la va padonnen nou tou."
fritznel monte bis la
Fritznel pran bis pou al vizite zanmi'l.
fritznel
Ey! Chofè ki kote bis sa pwale? Èske li ka mennenm la kay mwen?
chofè
Vin monte vit, mwen prese mwen pwè pou'l ale.
Film some of the bus going down the road.
FRITZNEL
Mèsi chofè, mwen rive ou mèt metem atè.
Fritznel desann machin nan li travèse rivyè a epi li rive la kay li.
vizit fritznel la kay ti kòk
Fritznel ale pou vizite ti Kòk la kay li, li travèse ti la rivyè pou li rive la kay li.  Yonn te salye lòt tankou 2 bon zanmi lontan pase. Li jwe avèk Timoun,Ti Kòk mande Fritznel pou ki sa li poko aksepte Jezi? Fritznel dil' ki jan li te aksepte Kris, epi li dili kòman li tris pou mal li te fè avan. Ti Kòk ak Tonton Tiyen ankouraje Fritznel. Yo boukannen mayi nan Jadin ak bwè Lèt nan Tete Bèf.

fritznel
Mesye eee! Gade yon gason, kòman ou ye papa?
ti kòk
Mezanmi! Se pa ti Fritznel? Ou kwè se li? Se pa vre,m'pa kwè. Bon kisa'k ta di ti Fritznel ta tounen nan peyi isit ankò?
Fritznel
Ou konnen vye frè'm peyi a se pa nou fòk nou tounen kanmenm. Kote Tonton Tiyen? Kòman li fin gran moun?
Ti kòk
Monchè, janm wè miche a la, li tèlman gran moun. Lòt senmenn nan gen lè yap voye rele nou pou'n mete sèkèy miche nan kouti wi i, paske m'wèl kòmanse pa ka mache byen.
Fritznel
Ou pa janm pap fè komik ou menm, depi lontan m'konnen'w, ou poko chanje toujou ou menm?
TI KÒK
Fè yon ti chita m'pral di Tonton Tiyen ou nan lakou a.
Ti Kòk deplase pou rele Tonton Tiyen pandan Fritznel ap jwe ak Ti moun ki nan lakou a.
TI KÒK
Tonton Tiyen kote'w ye la? Etranje sou ou wi, Fritznel sot la vil vin wè nou. Kisa nap prepare pou li?
Tonton tiyen
Kouman? Ou sou blag! Kite'm soti pou mal wè gasonm nan, m'pa tande lontan an.
Epi Tonton Tiyen soti andan kay la, li salye Fritznel epi pale avè'l.
Tonton Tiyen
O! Gasonm nan, kijanw ye la? Saw vin chache isit? Mwen te andan an, Ti Kòk al relem li dim ou deyò a, epi m'di fòm vin wè si se vre, ou konnen bouch ti moun pale anpil.
fritznel
Tonton, ou konnen depi nou la, fòk nou toujou pase nan lakou a paske se la nou te leve.
TI KÒK
Fritznel, nou pral nan Jaden pita nèg pam. Ou konnen kòman nou te konn kraze mayi boukannen ak lèt bèf.
fritznel
Ou sonje bagay sa yo toujou nèg? OK, ou mèt menenm nan jaden an pita, map manje anpil.

Ti Kòk
Dim kisa'w fè kòm pwogrè la vil la?  Eske'w poko resevwa Jezi kòm Sovè ak mèt ou toujou? Monchè wap jwe ak bagay serye.
Fritnel vin tris lè Ti Kòk pozel kesyon an, li sonje tout bagay mal li te konn fè.
fritznel
Ti Kòk, ou pozem yon bèl kesyon, men, kite'm reponn ou. Frèm, mwen gen tan resevwa Jezi, men sa pat fasil pou mwen.
TonTon Tiyen
Mwen te priye anpil pou'w te fè sa.
Ti Kòk leve.
TI KÒK
Fritznel, lè a rive an al nan jaden an kounye a.
FRITZNEL
Tonton Tiyen map vini m'pral nan jaden avèk Ti Kòk. Mwen gen lontan mwen pa manje yon ti mayi boukannen ak lèt bèf. Epi mwen grangou apre tout wout mwen sot fè la.
TONTON TIYEN
Ale non pitit mwen, ou konnen sak vid pa kanpe.
Ti Kòk avèk Fritznel kite lakou a pou yo ale nan jaden mayi a ak kote bèf yo ye a epi yo te kòmanse pale pandan yo nan wout la.
FRITZNEL
Lèm te rive lavil mwen pat gen anyen poum te fè, mwen te jwenn yon gwoup nèg, kite konn manyen afè moun epi'm te vin zanmi avèk yo.
Ti Kòk
Saw di la a? Mesye gade jan lavi zanmim nan tap fini mal!
Fritznel
Kounya menm chak swa nèg yo pran'm na'l fè operasyon epi'm te vin gaye nan fè sa ki mal. Men, m'te gen yon moun ki t'ap panse avèm.
TI KÒK
Se ki yès kite panse avèw, ou pat gen fanmi Pòtoprens.
FRITZNEL
Se Jezi ki te voye yon moun pote padon li pou mwen.
Ti Kòk
O mèsi Jezi, ou pèmèt Fritznel antre nan plan ou te gen pou li a. Kijan ou te resevwa Jezi?
Pandan Fritnel ap mache ak Ti Kòk li vin pi tris toujou, li wè fado peche'l te fè yo, vle vin sou li.
fritznel
Monchè, se aprè nou te fin kase yon lòt vi. kay. Aprè kèk jou mwen te al fè yon ti flannen, epi pandan m' te kanpe, yon mesye ki rele Jose te vin parèt,li te prezante'm levanjil, aprè anpil tèt rèd mwen te bay Jezi rès vim.
Ti Kòk
Mwen kontan ou pat fè tèt di, ou te prese bay Jezi viw, kounye a ou dwe mande Bondye padon pou tout sa ou te fè ki mal, paske li se padon. Epi priye'l pou'l kontinye travay kè'w.
fritznel
Frèm, priye pou mwen, pou'm bliye tout sa mwen te konn fè ki mal, sitou pou'm ka mennen yon lòt vi.
Ti Kòk
Ou byen di, se sa Bib la di nan 2 Kor. 5 V 17: "Si yon moun ap viv nan Kris la, li vin yon lòt moun. Bagay lontan yo disparèt, se lòt bagay nèf ki pran plas yo kounyeya."
Fritznel vire do'l pou pale avek Bondye.    
fritznel
Bondye, èske'w padonem vre? Mwen pa kwè map jwenn padon, chak fwa'm sonje tout bagay mal mwen te fè, m'santi map fini.
Ti Kòk
Fritznel, ou pa bezwen pè, paske ou menm Jezi sove jodi a, se pa kounyeya li te gen plan sa pou ou. Men se depi avan fondasyon mond lan li te genyen'l pou ou. Nan Efezyen 1 V 4 ak 7: Li di, "Bondye te deside depi davans pou'l te adopte nou pou pitit li nan Jezi Kri, gremesi Kris ki mouri pou nou an, nou delivre, nou resevwa padon pou peche nou yo." Sa vle di, ou te nan pwogram Bondye pou'l te sove'w, ou mèt fèl konfyans.

fritznel
Ti Kòk, mwen kwè avèk tout bon pawòl ou dim la yo, Bondye ka padone'm.
Ti Kòk
Zanmim nan, men yon konsèy mwen vle ba ou jodi ya, ou konnen yon moun paka swiv yon moun li pakonnen, ou bezwen priye Bondye poul fèw konn Jezi, san sa ou pap ka fè levanjil Bondye mande a.
Ti Kòk avek Fritznel kite Jaden an yo tounen la kay.  Pandan yo antre nan la kou a, kote Tonton Tiyen chita...
FRITZNEL
Mwen vle Jezi travay nan la vi'm, men chak fwa mwen sonje bagay mwen vòlè lè mwen nan gang la, mwen vle jwenn padon nan men moun ke'm te vòlè tout afè'l yo.
TI KÒK
Men, pou fè sa fòk ou remèt tout bagay ou vòlè yo.
TONTON TIYEN
Ou dwe konnen sa se zafè gang, si ou bezwen gen fòs ak kouraj pou kanpe devan lòm ak devan Bondye. Fòk ou remèt tout bagay. Paske pwovèb la di: Ti chen gen fòs sèlman devan kay mèt li. Mwen konnen lòt zanmi'w yo ki te nan gang lan avè'w yo pap dakò, men ou menm fòk ou fè sa.
FRITZNEL
Sa ki fèm mal, nou abitye vann tout bagay nou konn vòlè.
TI KÒK
Si ou konnen gen kèk bagay ki rete nan men zanmi'w yo, al chache yo pou remèt yo kote ou pran yo a, si yo pa vle ba ou yo retire kòw nan bagay konsa.
FRITZNEL
Se sèl machin nan ki poko vann, paske nou poko ka regle fo papye pou li.
TONTON TIYEN
Sa se chans Bondye ba ou, li kite yon gwo bagay ou ka remèt. Le'w rive Pòtopwens ou dwe al dèyè pou remèt li.
FRITZNEL
Sa pa fasil.
TONTON TIYEN
Se vre, men si Bondye mete ou an fas la Rivyè Jouden, konnen li ka fè ou pase ladann san pye'w pa mouye. Menm si ou ta mouri wap antre nan peyi Jezi pwomèt nou an.  Paske Jezi di kon sa nan Matye 10:39, "Moun káp chache asire lavi l va pèdi li.  Men, moun ki va pèdi lavi l poutèt mwen va jwenn li ankò."
TI KÒK
Ou pa bezwen pè, tout sak pa fasil pou ou yo fasil pou Bondye.
TONTON TIYEN
Banm di'w yon ti istwa de yon bagay kite rive lè Jezi te sou tè a: Te gen yon nonm yo te rele Laza. Li te malad prèt pou mouri, sèl yo te voye rele Jezi. Lè Jezi tande nouvèl la, li di: Maladi Laza pap touye li. Tout sa rive pou fè moun wè pouvwa Bondye. Se ak maladi sa a Bondye pral fè wè pouvwa pitit li a. Kèk jou apre Laza te vin mouri.  Pandan li te gen kat jou mouri, Jezi te al wè fanmiy li yo, epi li te ale kote yo te antere mò a.  Li di Laza, "leve soti", menm lè a li te leve soti nan tonbo a tou vivan. Si pa chans zanmi ou yo ta touye ou Bondye ta jwenn glwa kanmenm.
FRITZNEL
Se vwe, kounye a mwen gen Jezi m'pa bezwen pè mouri.
tonton tiyen
Fritznel, tout sa ou wè nou di ou se yo pou ou fè, Bondye va fè de ou, moun li vle pou ou ye. Sèlman ou bezwen obeyisan devan Bondye.
rankont fritznel avèk baz la
Fritznel ap pataje Levanjil avèk Baz la epi li mande yo pou repanti epi aksepte Jezi. Sa pa entèrese yo. Fritznel explike yo ke li tris pou aksyon li te fè epi li mande yo machin nan poul' remèt avèk Jose. Vòlè yo ri epi bal presyon.
fritznel
Mesye kòman nou ye? se pa'm pa wè nou menm? A a a a mesye nou pa ta fèm sa.
VÒLÈ 3
Nou papi mal, nou te sonje ou anpil.
VÒLÈ 1
Pouki sa nou we'w jodi a?
FRITZNEL
Mwen kontan poum prezante
plan Bondye gen pou nou. Li vle
chanje nou menm jan li chanje'm.

VÒLÈ 3
Fritznel, kisaw gen nan kòw ak vye koze Jezi sa? Ou wè, siw gen yon bagay ou vle di nou, di'l vit paske nou paka pale anpil nou pa gen tan poun pèdi.
VÒLÈ 1
Gade figi misye, monchè chache kote'k grate'w pou grate avèk koze Bondye sa tande. Bon, Bondye chanje'w epi figi'w blaze tankou mango ki gen kat jou toufe san rèk la.
fritznel
Bon, Mesye mwen gen yon gwo pwoblèm, chak fwa'm rete, mwen tris anpil pou machin nan ki nan men nou. Mwen ta renmen nou remèt mwen li poum bay mèt machin nan li.

VÒLÈ 1
An an! se sa a a, gade figi nèg la non, tade'm byen papa, siw konn manje kay nèg ou a, se ou ki konnen, epi siw kontinye ouvri bouch ou nan bagay sa li pap bon pou ou tande papa.
Volè yo deplase san yo pa di'l anyen. Epi Fritznel rete kanpe tou tris pandan lap souke tèt li san di anyen.
jose fache kont fritznel
Jose fache avèk Fritznel. Li pou kont li epi li mache. Li priye pou li mande ki jan li kapab padone Fritznel apre tout sa li te fèl.
jose francois
Mwen poko janm ka konprann sa Fritznel te dim nan, lè li te la kay mwen an.Yon nèg konsa poum byen avèl,yon moun ki fin vòlè tout sa'm genyen, sa mande fòk mwen reflechi avan. Bondye, kisa poum fè? Sevre li te vòlè tout afè'm, men fòk mwen padone'l,si Jezi te fè sa pou mwen, mwen dwe padonel paske Jezi pat vini sèlman pou mwen kite yonn ki pat vle tande pale de li, men li te vini pou vòlè yo tou. Men mwen pa kapab padone'l, li fè'm twop mal!

manno ankouraje Jose
Manno al vizite Jose Pòtopwens poul ka ankouraje Jose aprè li te pèdi tout bagay la kay li.
Manno
Bonjou Mesye Jose, kòmanw ye? Kòman Madanm ou ak Josette ye? Tout bagay byen?
Jose francois
Mwen trè byen, Madanm mwen ak Josette byen gras Bondye. Banm nouvèl Tonton Tipay non, kòman li toujou ap fè levanji? Tout lòt moun an deyò yo byen?
manno
Tonton Tipay trè byen, malgre li fin granmoun, li toujou vle kenbe pye Bondye. Epi tout lòt moun yo byen.
jose francois
Kòman ou te fè yon ti pase wè nou? Ki mirak?
manno
Frèm, mwen te tande kijan tout bagay te pase'w, mwen oblije antre isit poum wè kòman'w ye. Epi mwen tande ou te resevwa Jezi, mwen vin poum ankouraje'w.
jose francois
Monchè Manno, mwen pa ka imagine gran mirak sa Bondye fè nan lavi'm. Yon moun ki pa chwazi Jezi pa janm konnen ki jan lavil ap fini. Epi moun sa sanble ak yon bato ki san gouvènay. Mwen pat janm panse si Bondye t'ap fè yon bagay konsa pou mwen, men li pa gade sou vye moun mwen te ye pou li te padone'm.
Manno
Mwen kontan pou bèl bagay sa li fè nan la viw.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Men, mwen fenk jwenn nouvèl ke se te Fritznel kite nan gang ki te kase kay mwen epi pran tout afèm. Se Fritznel mwen te mennen bay Kris la, kounye a se frè mwen li ye.
MANNO
Fòk ou sonje li pat konn Kris lè li te pran afè'w yo.  Mwen konnen mwen regrèt anpil bagay mwen te fè avant mwen te konvèti. Kounye a yo gen tan fèt, m'paka chanje yo.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Mwen tèlman fache avèk li pou sal te fèm!
manno
Ravèt pa janm gen rezon devan poul. Kounye a, ou bezwen chache konnen ki jan pawòl la mande pou ou viv. Men sa Bondye di nan Efezyen 4V 31, 32: "Piga yo jwenn nan mitan nou moun ki kenbe lòt nan kè yo, moun ki gen San wo, moun ki renmen fè kòlè. Piga yo tande woywoy ak joure nan mitan nou."
Jose Francois
Eh?
Manno
Nou pa fèt pou gen okenn lòt kalite mechanste k'ap fèt nan mitan nou. Okontrè, se pou nou aji byen yonn ak lòt, se pou nou gen bon kè yonn pou lòt, pou nou yonn padonnen lòt, menm jan Bondye te padonnen nou nan Kris la. Sa vle di, Frè Jose ou dwe renmen tout moun, menm moun ki fèw mal.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Tèt mwen cho!
MANNO
Ou pa bezwen fè tèt cho, sèlman, mande Bondye fòs ak kouraj.  Si ou se yon Kretyen fòk ou aji tankou Kris.
Jose Francois
Mwen te priye pou'm resevwa Jezi, deja. Men, nan moman sa mwen pa santi'm yon Kretyen.
MANNO
An nou priye pou Bondye kap chanje kè'w. Se sèlman Jezi ki ka chanje kè yon moun. Paske Bondye di li pap ekri sou tablèt wòch ankò, men lap ekri nan kè. Kite Bondye ekri nan kè ou.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Wi, ou mèt priye pou'l fèt.
MANNO
Senyè Jezi, se ou menm ki ka fè kè moun yo rèd ou byen fè kè yo mou. Tanpri ekri pawòl ou nan Kè Jose. Fèl sonje jan ou te renmen'l, ou te menm ale sou la kwa pou li te ka jwenn padon. Fèl renmen frè Fritznel, pou'l ka padonnen'l jan ou mandel la.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Mèsi.
MANNO
Konnen, lap pran tan pou Bondye travay nan kè ou, men fòk ou dakò pou travay sa fèt.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Ok.
MANNO
Ou ka priye pou Fritznel tou pou Bondye ka chanje kè li tou.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Bon, mwen konnen ou fatige, li tap bon pou ta fè yon ti kouche avan ou retounen. Ou mèt al repoze.
manno
Mèsi anpil frè'm.
baz la fache kont fritznel
Vòlè 1 ak 3 pale kont Fritznel, epi yo diskite ki sa yo ka fè pou pwoteje tèt yo kont li. LI fèt deyò anba yon pye bwa.
vòlè 1
Kisa poun fè ak miche menn? Si nou pa fè yon bagay avèk li, lap trayi nou. Nan wout m'wèl pran la, bagay la pap bon pou nou.
vòlè 3
Monchè, miche aji yon jan dwòl vre! Wi, bon, kisa'n dwe fè pou li? An nou fè yon fason pou'n pran tèt li pou'n wè kòman li ka rete avèk nou nèt ale.
VÒLÈ 1
Li pap retounen vin jwenn nou paske levanjil li a gentan gate lespril.
VÒLÈ 3
Nan ka sa, ki sa nou ka fè?
VÒLÈ 1
Si nou pa mete'l an silans, lap di sa nou te fè. Sil fè sa petèt jijman polisye ka menm tonbe sou nou.
VÒLÈ 3
Nou pa ka kite sa rive. Petèt nou dwe pale avek li.
VÒLÈ 1
Li twò ta pousa monchè! Ou pat wè li vin bon zanmi Jose; li toujou la kay li?
VÒLÈ 3
Se sa! Li menm mande machin nan pou li bay Jose. Imagine apwè tout bagay nou te fè pou nou te gen machin sa, kounye a li vle pran'l pou remèt ak Jose. Ha!
VÒLÈ 1
Kijan pou nou ka fè'l bèbè?
VÒLÈ 3
Fòk nou di'l piga li pale de nou.
VÒLÈ 1
An nou gaye kaka miche non.
Vòlè 3 leve soti, li pa alèz.
VÒLÈ 3
Ou konn kouri ou pa konn kache.

atak kont fritznel nan wout la
Vòlè 1 ak 3 kondwi machin nan epi yo rankontre avèk Fritznel nan wout la. Fritznel mande yo ankò si yo pap bay Jose Machin nan. Vòlè 1 fache li rale zam sou Fritznel. Li tire'l epi Fritznel tonbe atè. Li blese. Vòlè 3 desann nan machin nan pou ede Fritznel. Vòlè 1 kouri ale avèk machin nan. Vòlè 3 rele pou pou'l jwen èd. Josette tande rèl la li kouri rele papa'l. Jose rele anbilans nan selilè.
vòlè 3
Men Fritznel!
Vòlè 3 lonje dwet li pou montre kote Fritznel ap soti.
vòlè 1
Kote miche? Sa nap fè? 
Vòlè 1 kanpe machin nan.
FRITZNEL
Mwen t'ap chache nou tout kote, mwen pat wè nou. Kòman nou ye mesye? Mwen te vle pale avèk nou konsènan machin nan.
VÒLÈ 1
Kisa ou te bezwen di nou?
FRITZNEL
Eske ou poko jwenn fo papye?
VÒLÈ 3
Nou eseye tout bagay, raketè yo mande twòp kòb nou poko ka fè anyen.
FRITZNEL
Ou mèt ban mwen'l, mwen gen yon bagay m'ka fè avè'l.
VÒLÒ 3
Kisa wap fè avè'l?
VÒLÈ 1
Eske nou ka jwenn yon bon ti kòb pou li? Fòk nou gen kòb la nèg, si non mwen pito kontinye kouri'l epi al fè operasyon avè'l la nwit.
FRITZNEL
Ou mèt banm machin nan mwen pa vle nou mache vòlè bagay moun la nwit ankò.
VÒLÈ 3
Men ou poko di ki sa wap fè avèk machin nan nèg!
FRITZNEL
Ou konnen, mwen vle nou retire kò nou nan vòlè, paske mwen pa fè patit mond ankò. Nan plas tout mal mwen te konn fè, mwen vle fè yo byen kounye a. Mwen ta vle fè yon bagay kap bon pou mwen epi pou nou tou.
VÒLÈ 1
Pa di'm, wap remèt machin nan?
Vòlè 1 soti nan machin nan tranble pandan li mete menl bòkote'l poul pran zam li.
VÒLÈ 3
Poze sanw, chita.
Vòlè 1 pwente zam li sou Fritznel epi souke'l pandan lap pale.
VÒLÈ 1
Si ou remèt machin nan, lap rele polis vin arete nou tout. Ou sonje mwen te di'w miche tap trayi nou.
VÒLÈ 1
Map touye'l menm.
VÒLÈ 3
Ou pa bezwen fè'l sa.
Pa pa paw, li tire Fritznel epi li monte machin nan li ale kite Vòlè 3 kanpe bò kote Fritznel la.
FRITZNEL
Tanpri Jezi è è è.
(Lap di'l san fos, tankou li pap kapab respire.)

Fritznel tonbe atè a.
VÒLÈ 3
Anmwe rele anbilans. Anmwe vin potem sekou....
JOSETTE
Papi mwen tande yon tire deyò a epi mwen tande yon rèl, pou kisa ou pa al wè sak pase?
JOSE FRANCOIS
Ok, chri map vini.
Jose Francois kouri poul al jwenn moun kap kriye a, lè li rive li wè se Fritznel yo tire epi li rele anbilans nan telefòn li.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Alo Kwa Wouj, nou gen yon zanmi ki pran bal. Tanpri, voye anbilans vin ede nou, paske li poko mouri li gen chans poul viv. Mwen nan ri Omega.
VÒLÈ 3
Ki sa m'dwe fè zanmi'm nan pran bal, woy, woy.
JOSETTE
Papi kiksa mwen ka fè?
JOSE FRANCOIS
Al andan kay la di manmi sa kap pase, chache kèk sèvyèt pote ban mwen kounye a.
JOSETTE
Ok papi, map vini.

JOSE FRANCOIS
Alo. Mwen ap chache yon jij paske nou gen yon moun ki pran bal. Tanpri, voye yon jij vin ede nou. Mwen nan ri Omega, deyo sou wout la.
FRITZNEL
Mwen santi'm ap mouri, men mwen dakò mouri paske Bondye te gen tan mete'm nan vwè chemen an.
(Lap di'l san fos, tankou li pap kapab respire.)


JOSE FRANCOIS
Fritznel ou pa twò grav ou ka viv.

VÒLÈ 3
Non, pa mouri zanmi'm!
Josette retounen avèk sèvyè yo, epi yo mete yonn anba tèt Fritznel epi sou kote li pran bal la.
anbilans
Anbilans lan paret. Yo mete Fritznel andan Machin nan. Yo bal' oksijèn ak sewòm epi yo bal' premye swen.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Wi ou rive, vin bò isi avèk anbilans la.
PARAMETIC
Di mwen ki sa ki te pase'l la?
VÒLÒ 3
Mwen te ansanm avèk zanmi'm, zanmi an te tire'l, men se la li te blese.
PARAMETIC
Pran kad la.
Parametic pwente.
Jose Francois ak Josette al pran kad la.
VÒLÈ 3
Eske miche ap viv?
PARAMETIC
Mwen pa konnen men mwen wè'l pèdi anpil san. Ede'm leve miche mete sou kad la.
Yo tout monte nan machin nan.
PARAMETIC
Chofè ou mèt ale.
Filme machin pandan lap kouri pou ale lopital.
Parametic mete Fritznel nan sewòm epi pran tansyon'l pandan yo pral lopital avèk li.
doktè pa wè chans pou Fritznel viv
Doktè te egzamine Fritznel epi li di lap mouri, nen pòt sa ki fèt, si yo operel' ou byen non. Li montre yo radyografi kote bal la chita. Jose te vrèman dezole epi li kòmanse priye pou Fritznel. Josette kanpel' pou li padone'l nèt avan. Jose padone Fritznel epi kòmanse priye ankò.
DR REGINALD
Mwen rele Dr Reginald. Mesye a prèske pa gen san ki rete nan kòl ankò non. Nou gen tan ba li yon lit san deja.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Kisa sa vle di?
DR REGINALD
Li pran twòp tan atè a, li fin pèdi tout san li te genyen.
VÒLÈ 3
Men eske lap viv?
Doktè mete radyografi sou limyè pou yo ka wè'l.
DR REGINALD
Men radyografi ki te fèt. Ou wè la, sa se bal la, kote li chita danje anpil.
JOSETTE
Men pou ki sa li danjere?
DR REGINALD
Ki yès ki kite ti moun nan vin la? Li gen danje paske bal la chita bò kè'l. Si ou gade'l la,se sa ki kè li.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Ki sa nou ka fè?
DR REGINALD
Nou te ka eseye fè operasyon'l, Men, nou pagen doktè ki spesyalize nan kè. Mwen se chirijyen, mwen ka retire bal la san pwoblèm. Men, se yon mirak sèlman ki ta pou fèt pou kè a pa ta pran yon domaj.
VÒLÈ 3
Sa vle di, li pral mouri, pa gen anyen ki ka fèt?
Volè 3 kòmanse kriye. Epi doktè a deplase, li kite Jose Francois tou tris.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Si se sèlman mirak ki ka sovel, fòk mwen priye pou li.
JOSETTE
Papi avan ou priye, mwen ta renmen ou padone Fritznel. Bondye paka tande piye ou si ou pa padone'l.

VÒLÈ 3
Monchè fòk mwen di la verite, miche se zanmim, se nou toua ki alèz konsa, se lòt zanmi an ki fèl sa pou tèt yon machin Fritznel mandel.  Ou dwe padonel, paske li merite padon.
FRITZNEL
Se machin ou an mwen te eseye mande'l pou'm ka remèt ou.
(Lap di'l san fos, tankou li pap kapab respire.)

VÒLÈ 3
Wa w, ou telman kwe nan Jezi!  Li tap bon pou tout moun kap rele tet yo Kretyen pou viv kon sa!
JOSE FRANCOIS
Se sa menm, sal te vle fè a, se li ki tap bon, paske tout moun ki vle mennen yon vwè vi ak Jezi dwe fè sal mande pou fè. Mèsi Fritznel, dèske ou te aksepte fè sa Jezi te mande ou fè. Mwen wè ou vle fè yon bon kretyen. Se pou Bondye ba ou la vi ankò. Mwen dakò padone'w, menm si ou paka remèt mwen anyen. Mwen padone'w.
Jose Francois mete men'l sou Fritznel pandan lap priye pou li.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Papa Bondye, mwen vin nan prezans ou nan moman sa, poum mande ou gras pou Fritznel. Men li kouche sou kabann lopital, kote doktè paka fè anyen pou li. Mwen mande ou touche li kounye a, ak pwisans ou, ak dife Sen-Tespri w la. Bal yon temwanyaj vivan, menm jan ou te fè pou Laza. Pèmèt glwa ou manifeste pou moun ki pa konnen w yo, vin konnen'w. Se nan non Jezi nou fè priyè sa. Amen.

operasyon bondye
Jezi parèt epi li pran Bal la san lòt moun pa wèl. Petèt Bondye soufle nyaj li sou kote bal la te antre a.
We can film a close-up in the operating room with a real patient.  We can have a black hand bring a bullet out of an open wound.  That footage can be edited in as the close-up angle for the scene.
Vòlè 3 asepte kris
Fritznel touse (pandan vi'l ap retounen) epi li geri nèt. Li gade kote'l te blese.  Vòlè 3 wè jan Fritznel geri epi li bay la vil' ak Jezi.
FRITZNEL
Wow, ki sa ki pasem la? M'pa malad ankò!
Li manyen kotel te blese a, li pa we anyen. Li pa menm gen san sou li anko.
FRITZNEL
Jose mèsi pou padon ou te fèm, mèsi pou tout priyè ou yo. Jezi te tandew, epi li geri mwen. Kounye a mwen an fòm nèt.
Fritznel leve danse avèk men'l yo anlè.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Gade yon mirak Bondye fè. Doktè a te di se sèlman yon mirak ki te ka fèt pou ou viv. Bondye gran li fè sal vle.
JOSETTE
Alelouya! Mesi Jezi!
VÒLÈ 3
M'pa konprann sa'm wè la. Bondye'w fè ou fè bagay fou.
JOSE FRANCOIS
Pa fwa lè le mond wè yon kretyen fè sa Bondye mandel fè, li samble bagay fou. Men Bondye nan gran pouvwa li, tout sa'l fè toujou etone lòm, pou non li ka glorifye.
VÒLÈ 3
E byen! kounye a mwen pa gen lòt chwa, ke bay la vim ak Jezi.
FRITZNEL
Sèlman kwè ou se yon pechè, kwè Jezi te mouri pou'l sove'w, vire do ou bay tout mal ou te fè, epi fè menm jan ave'm. La vi kretyen pa janm fasil,men finalman si ou rete kole ak Jezi tout bagay ap fini byen.

VÒLÈ 3
Bondye, mwen di'w mèsi, jodi a ou fèm wè grandè ou, mwen wè pa gen lòt tankou'w. Kounye Jezi vin jwenn mwen epi mwen va mache ave'w. Padone pechem yo, mwen rekonèt m'fè anpil peche devan'w, kitem obeyi'w pou tout la vi'm epi fè'm jan ou vle pou mwen ye. Tanpri ede'm fè tout sa mwen gen pou'm fè, epi pwoteje'm menm jan ou te pwoteje la vi Fritznel. Se nan non Jezi mwen priye'w. Amen.
Yo tout anbwase yonn lòt epi selebre ansanm.
fritznel chante avek vòlè 3
Yo chante yon chan an Kreyòl nan Legliz la. Si nou paka panse ak yon chante, n'ap chante chan sa ki di"pa gen lòt tan kou'w." Ekriti yo kòmanse ap monte.
