Haiti Medical Missions Team Day 3

Bon nuit (good evening) from Titanye, Haiti

Today was an incredible day. Our mobile clinic team saw close to 90 patients in a local school, and our downtown inner city team saw 94 patients and had 7 salvations! Praise God. Upon driving to the inner city area we served my breath was taken away.  I thought I had seen the devastation, but if things can get worse, they are here. This area where we set up our clinic is one of the poorest slums in Haiti. Devastation and mountains of rubble with scattered smashed and crushed vehiles litter the roadways. It is as if a war broke out. But at the clinic, away from the devastation and behind high walls, there is peace and calm. We walked into seeing hundreds of patients waiting calmly outside in the heat singing Christian hymns. It took my breath away. I worked in triage today, and saw around 40-50 patients. Most symptoms are fever, aches, pains and headache, but we had a few severe cases, such as the man who had a stroke and was miraculously able to walk all the way to the clinic with aid from his family. All were able to get treatment, and most importatnly prayer.  One woman who gave her life to the Lord today had a remarkable and immediately visible transformation. After prayer the spirit of joy, happinnes and jubilee poured out from her. She had the biggest grin on her face I have ever seen. Her children jumped up and down with joy. All of the children are very well behaved. Most are sick, yet sit in the 95 degree heat for hours with no complaints. Barely any children cry or scream. It is so very different from most clinics and hospitals in America. Tomorrow we are believing God for 20 salvations. Please stand in agreement with us for this!  We appreciate all your prayers and we know they are at work! Please also lift up another team from Colorado who is staying here with us at Samaritan’s Purse. They leave tomorrow for 3 days to camp out in a remote area of Titanye. Please pray for favor with the local  mayor, for vision, divine appointments, safety and protection. We are believing God that the mayor will allow them to continue to build houses for the poor here.  It has been an amazing day, and I can’t wait to see what God is going to do tomorrow. I am about to head out to a group devotional and prayer meeting with our team. Looking forward to it! Until next time…our love and blessings to all our family and friends at home in the states! Au reviour 🙂
