I am terribly sorry for the absence as of late. We had a group of 2 nurses from Wednesday the 19th to Tuesday the 25th. Since then we have not had working wifi at the house. I have used data on my phone for social media etc but I wanted to wait for good wifi to upload another blog post. Still don’t have working wifi so I’m using the wifi from the hotel across the street on my phone. Shhh don’t tell.
So last week was a great week with Meagan and Krystal the two nurses who came and served with us. We worked at a hospital the first day, assisting the other nurses and doctors there with checkups and such. We then did a total of 3 clinics in different villages/areas. We visited a small shanty town named Fond-barye close to the DR boarder and saw around 35 individuals/families. The second clinic was at the Men nan Men school in Ganthier and we gave out medications to the students in need. The final clinic we did was in Kwa Kok at the church that Pastor V started. It was a joy for me personally to see people that I have been around alot and know get the medical attention that they desperately need. I played pharmacist all week and picked out meds and explained them (with the help of translators) and gave them out as needed! It was fun to work that roll. We had a Haitian doctor with us each day working and assisting if patients needed private assessment or had problems that our nurses couldn’t address.
SO since I’m on my tiny phone screen I’ll leave it there. A simple overview of my week. Since then we’ve (FFP staff, workmen and I) worked on the construction of the railings on the roof of the school. It was nice to do some manual labor yesterday, I’m sure we’ll do more tomorrow.
We have a construction relief team coming November 5th! When they decided to come after Matthew passed, there were 3 members but it has since risen to 10! We plan to repair a school in the area of Ganthier that was damaged by the floods.
Please continue to pray for Haiti as the country rebuilds… again.. and pray for FFP as our role constantly changes with the situations. God is good and we are raising relief support quickly!

Also, if you feel lead, please consider blessing my work here as I am still in need of fundraising support. I’m looking for more monthly donators who can partner with me each month for one or two years. It can be any amount! You can also choose to donate to my fund under the donate tab on the FFP website above ⬆
Thank you one and all for your continued support of the call on my life to live and serve our brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers, orphans and widows here in Haiti. I am blessed to be used in this way.
For those who don’t know, lust is a strong temptation for me. I had a lengthy conversation about it today with a friend and I decided I’d open my heart and share my struggles with those who are supporting and encouraging me. Please pray for strength against the inevitable temptation and grace to keep my eyes on what is true, honorable, just, pure, lovely and excellent. (Philippians 4:8)
