This baby weighs 2.5 pounds.  It is two months old.  The mother came to clinic this week.  She refused any type of help unless it was money.  We offered to take the child in the RC, send it to another hospital, find help at a good facility but she refused.  She has fed the child infant formula, regular food, and other things.  She went to the local voudou place in her town as she thought it was a sickness brought on by satan.  The man told her that she needed to take the child to the Cazale clinic, it did not have a sickness from Satan. A referal from the oungan priest to our clinic, that is a first.

    A huge part of me wishes I would never have to see those pictures.

    A bigger part of me knows that I need to keep looking and never turn away.

    God bless your work.

    Prayers going up for everyone… for that sweet baby especially, but also for everyone in the RC, everyone in the community, and prayers that everything in the semi can help everyone in the community.

    Hi Lica and Lori, I keep up on your blog always and just felt I had to reply to this post. It took me a while to even figure out what to say. I thank you for showing all of what Haiti is. I want to know but it is hard to see. I feel God is leading me at some point in my life to do what you are doing full time and not just part time like I am now with NVM. I pray for you and the children and am so thankful that God placed you where he did to help them but also for the impact it has on my life and thoughts here. You are role models for me to see your faith, trust and watch God moving in everything. Thank you for posting everything and being real.
    Praying,
    Stephanie Mueller

    We are praying, praying, praying for His will to be done and for His people to rise up (including ourselves). I am so thankful for you openness and your service to the King of Kings. He said, “Let the children come unto me”, and He blessed them. He also said that what you do to the least of these you’ve done unto Me. May He richly bless you and encourage you in His calling! Your boys are a delight. 🙂
