Cholera update

For the last two weeks the cholera count has been going down.  We had three volunteers here from North America that were working in the cholera house.  They all did a great job helping us and giving Lori a break.  We had a few days that we only had three patients.  But they all left at the beginning of the week.  Today we had 22 patients.  Many were very ill and unable to walk to their beds.  We are going through many, many supplies but…God is providing for each and every need that we have.  To God be all the Glory!

These two were patients at the cholera house.  They are better and ready to return home.  Everyone receives a kit and education on cholera before they leave.

This man really appreciated the care given to him from a volunteer that was here. 

Here is the same man a few days later going home.  He wanted to thank Paul for helping him but he had already left for the USA.  So we took a picture to send Paul.

patient care

I have a special place in my heart for the older people of Haiti.  I just love them so much.

Lori with Ginette at the cholera house.  Ginette has been a huge help to so many people.

Psalm 119:147-149 (NIV)

147 I rise before dawn and cry for help;
   I have put my hope in your word.
148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,
   that I may meditate on your promises.
149 Hear my voice in accordance with your love;
   preserve my life, LORD, according to your laws
