Thanks to Bonne Fin for planning and hosting our first medical team to Haiti! The team was a trial run for the HarvestCall Medical Committee and a joint effort with Child Sponsorship and Hospital Lumiere. The goal was to interweave loving service with sharing the gospel to the glory of God.

We went out with the team for four days to four sponsored schools in the Bonne Fin area. The schools that were chosen were Polycar, Dubois, Dagout and Marc Eric. It was a blessing to see the spirit of cooperation within the team, and the love extended so warmly to the Haitians. The team gave exams to 110-125 people per day, predominately school students. One day we had to bring a very sick child back to the hospital with us.

Several mornings the entire school was waiting (they didn't stay seated for long)!

Special Visitors!

It's always nice to see someone from "back home!"

Vic and Brenda Bauman, the elder from our sending church in Smithville, Ohio, were here for a few days. They were invited to teach several days at a pastors seminar over in Dumay and afterwards they blessed us with a visit! We met them up at Hospital Lumiere, had a tour of the hospital together and then brought them to our home.

We enjoyed showing them a little of our lives on a daily basis, as well as Grace’s school, SEED campus, downtown Les Cayes, some Haitian homes, and of course, a drive to the beach over in Port Salut. They were even able to attend the Wednesday night missionary Bible Study with us.

Welcome back anytime!

Vic got to share something with "Lazarus" who sits outside our gate.
