Blessings….

A few weeks ago someone called from the US Consult.  They asked what we needed for the RC and clinic.  They wanted a needs list.  We gave them one over the phone that day.  They said they would contact us by email.  We never got an email.  After a few days, we were convinced that they had called the wrong number.  They must have been looking for one someone else.  We did not really think about it again, until last Sunday.  We were having a big cleaning day in the RC we had removed everything from the kitchen and were bleaching everything down and had the hoses out hosing down the floors.   We looked up and saw several people coming in the gate.  They were a security group coming to check us out  for the visitors from the US consult.  They wanted to make sure that the area was secure for the US ambassadors wife and a generals wife that was coming to RHFH.  We were just a little stressed out!  So the next day there was a group of Haitian police that came.  They were checking out the area for security as well.  Someone called the day before to again confirm the visit.  They would have 30 to 35 minutes with us and would be bringing a few items for the kids.  So about 10 that morning a truck pulls up with all these supplies.  We unloaded everything to wait on the group that was coming.  They arrived about 30 minutes later.  They ended up staying about 1 hour.  It was a great time.  Each of them were very down to earth and asked a lot of questions about the kids and clinic.  It was a great visit.  The ambassador’s wife had her own security that walked around with her.

They brought lots of food for the kids in the RC.  Rice, milk, infant formula, oatmeal, oil, sugar, diapers, baby food were among the items donated.

    It’s so good to see our consulate do something for an orphanage in Haiti! Most of the storys we hear about them are negative. Praise God for a positive story!! Thank you so much for sharing.

    Thank you, Lord for providing your people with these blessings. Thank you not only for the physcial blessings of food, milk, toys but also for the gift of encouragement that this is. Thank you for the reminder that you care and you are providing, in ways we could never anticipate.
