Medical Team # 2 and Kurt's Team Update

We are one big happy family!  We are at 20+ foreigners plus Haitians in a single residence.  It wasn't two story until we arrived. We've got many inhabitants on the roof.  They say it's cooler up there.  I would have to agree, and say dangerously cold in the early morning hours, with a great risk of pneumonia.  Of course, they call me Haitian.

We had a merging and blending of teams yesterday.  Kurt lent the medical team a nurse, a translator, and some other helpers.  They went to a new tent village.  It was a former American golf course, now about 22 acres of tents.  They said there were about 30,000 in that tent village.  They saw about 120 patients, some burns and general medical problems.  The team worked together well.  We also had a couple MCC nurses working with us yesterday.

Some of Kurt's team also took Joe's Trooper back to the house and worked on it during the day. 

Last night we showed films in Croix-de-Bouquets.  We had several hundred present.  There were five young people that accepted Christ as their personal savior.

This morning we're off to Quisqueya Chapel.  I'm not sure how we're all going to get there.  Will my Land Cruiser carry the brunt of these 20+ folks?  We hope?  We're hoping to have lunch at McEpi after church.  More films are scheduled for tonight, again in Croix-de-Bouquets.

Thanks for your prayers, they are valuable!

  1. For the record, four of us from team #1 slept on the roof as well, but not so much out of necessity as personal choice. I can't imagine that house holding twice the amount of people! (but then you also now have runinng water and Internet...I'm not at all bitter, can you tell?)
    glad to hear the films are working out and that clinics are still running smoothly!
