“My Life in Haiti”- by Megan Stoltzfus

      When I first came here to Haiti, I had no clue about what to expect! I knew nothing about life in a third world country, nothing about the work in a clinic, and nothing about the Haitian people and their culture. All I knew was that I was coming to lend whatever help … Read more

Flying Hat

    The sun was shining beautifully this morning as I finished my big mug of coffee and headed to clinic to start on my usual row of bandage patients.

This story started a long time ago already, but with all that’s been happening at the clinic the last while, I guess we missed blogging about it.  I thought we had, but I can’t find a post on it.  So if we did and I’m repeating, sorry! Toward the end of March this small undernourished … Read more

Greetings in Jesus’ name to each one! It’s been a while since I contributed to the blog here, since leaving last October!

Cholera/Clinic Updates.

   A quick update on our neighbor, Moise went out to Ti-Goave to have his 3rd toe amputated on Sunday afternoon with Pastor Levy, this morning we heard that the hospital in town won’t amputate it under $2500.00 Haitian Dollars, ($312 USD) They can’t afford that, so we are looking for a hospital that will do it … Read more


It has been a very interesting weekend and Monday morning to say the least. Friday a 70 year old man came to the clinic, with congestive heart failure, Brian told me that the heart beat sounds like water just swishing around, someone else described it as an old washing machine swishing around, nevertheless, this gentleman … Read more
