    We put our trust in the Name of the Lord and His Word says that every knee must bow to the Name Of Jesus because His name is above EVERY name. That includes Kwasiorkor, malnutrition, vomiting, diarrhea, cough, fever, infections, cold symptoms, loss of appetite, and anything else that may be hidden. So we command sickness and disease to bow its knee now in the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS and leave the bodies of these His precious babes and all others in RHFH mission, They will live and not die and declare the works of the Lord in Jesus Name- AMEN! All Glory To The Father Who always causes us to triumph in Christ Jesus the Anointed One and His Anointing. Now we continue to Praise and Thank Him for the miracles.
    JOY, PEACE and STRENGTH.

    Lori, have you read anything about the benefits of un-processed, virgin coconut oil?? That is something you could rub into the skin of the babies and it would help their bodies start healing . . . it has amazing properties for health. If you’d like more info, I’d be happy to scan in some info and email it to you if you can handle attachments . . . and we’d be happy to help get some coconut oil down there if there was a connection for the babies. Maybe you can get it in Haiti or the DR ?? It needs to smell sweet and coco-nutty for it to be effective. It can be rubbed into the skin, melted and added in small quantities to food etc. We are praying for you all . . .

    […] showed the presentation.  Wouldn’t people feel compelled to contribute if they heard about 5 lb one year old babies and 12 lb 2 year olds?  And new moms that saved their babies but had both arms amputated?  And […]

    Every time I throw out my kids’ half eaten dinners now, these images flash through my mind. Praying for you Licia, and praying for these babies.
