Monday Dec 15th

So far there has been $653.87 donated towards the special need for the medical visas!  We also have $250 pledged.  We are still in need of $96.13 to be able to complete the paper work and visas for two children that need life saving surgeries for Spina Bifida.  Let me know if you have any questions —

Our team of four guys from Indiana left today.  They were able to complete lots of work and built several much needed items for RHFH.  Thanks guys!  We will miss you!


They put up new doors on the semi container that is here in Cazale.  The old one was falling apart and letting lots of critters in.



In the last few weeks we have had lots of blessings come our way.  We thank God and those that have donated items to us. Be blessed! 

 Lori and I received a card last week.  It was signed by several friends and several people that we have never met.  They together donated funds for Lori and I to take a day off and go do something somewhere for ourselves.  THANK YOU to everyone that thought of us and made a sacrifice to brighten our day!

New scripture/devotion book.


a new CD player so we can jam out and worship God when we are working in the office. (thanks Jeanne)


Lots of meds donated from a short term medical team


The stockings (the boys call them big red socks) are hung on the porch (Carmelo, Henley, Trey, Rosena, Amos, Story and Enoch)


You never know what outfit Trey will put on for the day.   He said the black socks were to keep his legs clean and to play soccer in.



Henley loving school


This group below traveled to Hinche for cleft lip/palate  surgery from Operation Smiles.  Check out Lori’s blog for details and pictures. 


The  literacy classes for our workers are going well.  Almost all of them can sign their  names when they get paid now.  They enjoy the class and are improving in their skills.  This is Chantel.  She was doing home work during her break at lunch.



We are still  giving out items that have been donated for the RC and for the flood victims.



kitchen items for two families




We are going to have a busy week here.  The clinic will be closed for two weeks for general consults.  This week is the last week we are opened and have double the appointments.  Will you pray for us this week?

1 Samuel 2:7-9 (The Message)

 6-10 God brings death and God brings life,
      brings down to the grave and raises up.
   God brings poverty and God brings wealth;
      he lowers, he also lifts up.
   He puts poor people on their feet again;
      he rekindles burned-out lives with fresh hope,
   Restoring dignity and respect to their lives—
      a place in the sun!
   For the very structures of earth are God‘s;
      he has laid out his operations on a firm foundation.
   He protectively cares for his faithful friends, step by step,
      but leaves the wicked to stumble in the dark.
      No one makes it in this life by sheer muscle!
   God‘s enemies will be blasted out of the sky,
      crashed in a heap and burned.
   God will set things right all over the earth,
      he’ll give strength to his king,
      he’ll set his anointed on top of the world!

    Wow, we take so much for granted. The maturnity article was just plain sad and to see these adults who didn’t get their clefts fixed young is too. I adopted a cleft infant and she had her surgeries at 3 mo, 10 mo and 23 mos.
