Haitians Can Teach All of Us The True Meaning of Patience for Medical Care

Well, our Life Clinic now has electricity, runnning water and living quarters upstairs but we are still working on the medical examining rooms, medical supplies,reception area, air conditioning for the pharmacy and a few other things before we plan to open in May. As Pastor Randy said, while the medical services at the clinic have not yet begun, the food and distribution of clothing and cooking supplies and other items has started. The community in Santo 19 and surrounding areas are excited and anxious to be treated. It will surely be a LIGHTHOUSE in that community.

To give you an idea how needed our LifeClinic really is, just yesterday one of the locals in Santo 19 was sharing how he went to a nearby medical clinic which was about a 10 minute walk away. When asked how often it is open, his reply was once. Confused, he was asked, do you mean once a week? No, he says, one day, period. How did he know about it then to even go for a medical checkup? Oh well, he replies,I happened to be at my church and they were setup beside it. It was a team from the US from a hospital in the midwest that was only there for 1 day. Then, as soon as they arrived, they were gone again. So if you didn't happen to hear about it, your chances for care would have to wait for maybe another month or year again....

Many connections with NGO’s, and faith based organizations continue to be made and we are following up with them some lead to a desired outcome and some don’t but we follow it and see what happens.
