Report from Ryan Stinson
Today we were working at Jerusalem IV. It was very hot and muggy, but the joy of the children spurred me on to work as hard as I could. The lesson we taught the children today was on the parable of the Pearl of Great Price. We taught the children that Jesus is worth all that you have. He is worth all of your heart, all of your soul, all of your mind and all of your strength. The children really had no clue what a pearl is, but we explained that it is a very valuable piece of jewelry. It is valuable like gold, but the Kingdom of Heaven is worth more than any amount of gold. Haiti has blessed me so much. I thank God for sending me here. Keep us in your prayers.

“Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.” Psalms 103:1-2
The Lord has blessed me to come on my first mission trip after completing nursing school at the University of South Alabama. While on this trip, we were able to provide care to the Haitian people, including wound care, medications, vitamins, clothes, and shoes. We were able to bring over seven suitcases of clothes and hygiene products, as well as six boxes of shoes. Praise the Lord! We prayed over the sick and provided funds for those needing assistance getting to the clinic or hospital for additional medical attention. Today, we travelled to Jerusalem IV, where we provided medical and wound care to over 200 patients! I praise the Lord above for allowing us to safely travel to Haiti and make medical care available for the people in this remote area. (The nearest hospital is approximately 2 hours away.) May God bless all the supporters for this beloved missionary trip.
