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.
