Cholera clinic update….

Again, there is no easy way to tell you what is going on here. It’s so not normal, so tragic, so strange that it’s hard to comment on it. So, for now, we’ll continue to share with you little things from our day. Sorry it can’t be more…..

I was promoted today. My usual tasks each day include the following: making people drink water, carting around supplies, organizing the supply closet, doing laundry, assisting the nurses in whatever they need.  Today I was in charge of watching closely a little girl who was doing good, but had taken a turn for the worse. After giving her much need fluid, she looks much better!! Praise the Lord!

I have to admit, last night was kind of funny. There is another couple here, they actually work for the mission we are partnering with. They live in La Bay, and have traveled the two hours to come and stay here to help out. (In fact, they were supposed to go home the 23rd, and decided to stay here another week to help out.) They are Curtis and Danielle, and they are about the same age as us. In the midst of it all, we’ve been able to hang out with them, and try to joke through most of this nonsense! We were short staffed, so, there we were, trying to help in any way we could. And since we all wear scrubs so we don’t get stuff on our own clothes, we can’t help but laugh at ourselves as we kept saying to each other, “dr. dr. dr. dr.” You know, from that one movie, Spies Like Us. It was hilarious, maybe you had to have been there?

Since the last thing I want to do is take pictures of people at such a vulnerable time, I haven’t. But, there is a sweet girl here who was interning for a month, and part of her job was to take a few photos of the clinic. So, here are a few of her photos…

One room of the clinic. Now, we have more cots, but not enough for everyone.
Children taking care of children.. a common thing here in Haiti.
Brother and sister both got it.
Cleaning with bleach. All the time.

  1. Brandon, Jessica, Keep up the good work you all are doing. May God continue to guide and bless you. We love you guys and are praying for you.

    Stephen and I will be in Haiti in April and we plan to help. If we’re able, can we send cases of water to you guys via Jerry’s boat? can you please talk to Jerry and inquire? we have his number…I will put a call into him this week.

    Love you, God bless!

  2. We are praying for the people of Haiti. My heart hurts for the children, first no food now Cholera! Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to those who so desperately need you. God says you just have to be willing and He will do the rest, you surely have been willing!
    Your treasures are in heaven!
    I love you!
    Aunt Kathy

  3. You may never see all the results of your labor of Love on this ol’ earth, but I’m sure that you will see/know of them when we all get to heaven! “What a day that will be!” I’m sure you and those dear people are surrounded by angels…..and things would be much worse without our Lord and His angels watching over you and yours!
    We’re praying for you,
    jerry & Mary Ann
