       for you alone, O LORD,
       make me dwell in safety.

    Since it’s not possible to formally adopt these children at this time, can I sponsor them. “Adopt” them so to speak, but they would stay there? Make sense?

      You could sponsor a child in the Rescue Center, it is about $80-100 to care for each child a month… did you have a child in mind? Many sponsors choose an amount to send in per month to go towards their child’s care.

    Praise God for you as you move forward in caring for these beautiful little ones….as you always have. Praying for all of you!

  6. What a heart-wrencher this post is. Surrounding you all with our prayers. Sending money, as much as we can. Bending God’s ear toward the helpless little ones. The Great Shepherd is with you. Amen.

    Once I read this post I googled kwashiorkor – I had never heard of this and Gedeon’s face haunted me. They describe it as “the disease of the displaced child.” My heart broke, then – even more than when I saw these pictures. Praying for God’s peace and love and magnificent strength to pour through you as you minister to these precious children.

    Praying for you and your ministry! Praying for a miracle in each of these precious one’s lives! Is there any chance of medical parole for them? If you ever have a need for that we’d be glad to provide care! Thank you for sharing this journey with us!

    Your hands and feet are blessed by the Lord. I pray that your spirit be renewed hourly by His spirit and that you are able to continue to administer His healing in the Name of the Lord Jesus. I am a registered nurse and was sent your information through a mutual friend. I have a very strong desire to come in and serve in Haiti. Please contact me if you are looking for someone short term.

  13. […] just something I find myself thinking about often.  Especially when I read about Dorchelle and Raymond and Gedeon and Darlens.  Do you know what Kwashiorkor is?  Have you ever heard of Marasmus? I didn’t know what […]
