Update on Pneumonia Patient

Good day to you all once again. Thank you for all your prayers for the elderly man who came in yesterday. A few hours after he was admitted, his heart began to fail, and his breathing got even shorter. Michael went out to check on him again, at 2pm, and realized that the man wasn’t … Read more

Happening now…

Greetings to all in Jesus’ name. I was over at the clinic just a few minutes ago (about 11am, Haiti time) when they had an older man come in. His breathing was very labored, with short breaths.

Still hungry for more????

Here the little guy is all stitched up! Better be careful now! It was a back breaking job–getting the dirt out and, numbing him without exciting him too much and then stitching. Seeing it was that deep and to the bone I wanted to be extra careful to have it clean. There were little bits … Read more

Zaboka, Anyone???

“Zaboka” is the Creole word for avocado, and this young man was way up in a tree picking this delicious fruit when he lost his footing and took the shortest path down! He ended up with this rather nasty memento of the event on his face; it was such a deep split, one could easily … Read more
