The Medical Clinic And VBS Begins, While Others Visit Hut-to-hut
What a great day in the Lord! We started the day with devotion and breakfast at 7 a.m. Afterwards we packed and carried trunks of medicine up to the church for the clinic. As usual, people had been waiting there since about 6 a.m. and were blocking the door. It took a while but I finally got everyone to sit down so we could start bringing people in, ten at a time. While this was going on at one end of the church, we had Vacation Bible School for the children at the other end. Both activities went great. The medical team saw 91 adults and 109 children.
Also in the morning, Will took Kenny, JJ, Don and Pastor Chuck hut-to-hut in the surrounding area. They came back sweaty but full of joy because several people had accepted Christ. Will said it was as if some the people were just waiting on the team to arrive so they could give their life to the Christ.
All of this happened before lunch.
After lunch the medical team and VBS started up again, while Will took Kenny, JJ, Joe, Pat and Terry hut-to-hut. Once again more people came to Christ. George Truelove and I drove up to the top of a mountain so I could use my cell phone. I called Port-au-Prince and talked to Edner who said we may be able to get papers for Gabriel (the truck) tomorrow. Hallelujah!!! I also called Wright Baptist Church, and between them, Shalimar Baptist, Green Acres Baptist and other home churches of some of the team members, we now have about $7600.00 that has either been given or pledged. What an awesome God we serve!
I am working with the Pastor here to see how we can help some of the flood victims financially. Some need to buy clothes and many are trying to figure out how they are going to rebuild their homes. Building materials are so expensive here. With tears in his eyes, Pastor Dorleon told me how he would not be able to pay the teachers all of the money that is needed here at the school because most of the children’s families have lost everything. We are looking into seeing how we can help with this situation, as well. There are many needs, and it seems we are finding new ones everyday, but our Lord will provide.
Tomorrow George, Joe and I will be going into Port so I can cash a check and buy more food.
We would like to thank everyone who has prayed or given gifts so we could show the people here that God loves them. God bless you all.
