Today we started our day at San Fil the home for the dying and destitude adults. It's so peaceful there. With Junior and Brunet singing and we got to pray over people and rub lotion on them.
When you look at these women whose bodies are nothing but skin and bones and see the scars on them, you wonder what their lives have been like to end up where they are. They are so beautiful. A few of them had tears in their eyes as Jeff prayed over them. We were able to touch every woman there, some young, some old, and each of them touched us back in our hearts.

Next we visited Elder at his school. It was fun to see some of the same kids you see on the water truck. I'm happy to see that they are in school. The kids are all so well behaved and Elder does a wonderful job educating them.

Then we went to visit Dr. Sem at his clinic. He was so happy that we would come to see him. He proudly showed us what he does there.

It was a busy day. Next we went to the home for the sick & dying babies. When we got there the sister's said that they needed help at the wound clinic. That's not my favorite place. Two of our team members have never experienced the babies so Jeff and I said we would go to the wound clinic. My favorite part is the drive there.

Random things

We have a new addition to the Healing Haiti Family.
Princess had 3 babies last night.

This place is a magnet, once you've been here it always pulls you back.

We are so blessed to have such a wonderful staff down here taking care of us.
Each one of them are so loving, caring, and giving. I have to wear a neck brace and can't lift anything this time so I've been seeing things differenly this time. It's good to take a step back sometimes and just observe the things going on instead of being a part of them. The tenderness of the staff on the water truck is amazing.

God is at work in a big way with this team. We are a small team 4 people. Myself, Jeff, Ann & Joyce.
Ann & Joyce are Father Reiser's nieces. They have taken positions on the Reiser Relief board since their uncle and my dear friend Father Reiser passed away. Just watching them as they see the things that touched their uncle's heart years ago enough to set up a relief effort for Haiti breaks my heart.
Please keep us in your prayers as they continue on this journey here and make decisions on how to carry on the Reiser legacy.

We are off to San Fil, visit Elder, and the Home for the sick & dying babies today
God Bless Haiti
