Latest News From Haiti

This young girl is Fedna, the first time I saw her she had a huge, bloated belly, full of worms, red hair from starvation and was anemic. Many children here in Haiti have this condition. I have seen worms crawling out of their noses, their mouths, and their bottoms, even their knuckles. Worms are easy to treat with worm medicine, as we treated Fedna. She is now a pretty young girl, going to school here in Fond Parisien. We de-worm all the children in our Love A Child Schools, and this is a real blessing.
Malnutrition is more difficult to treat and takes longer. There are two types of malnutrition; Kwashiorkor and Marasmus. The Kwashiorkor children are often bloated, and “fat looking,” but they are retaining lots of fluid due to lack of protein and vegetables in their diet. The thin, skeleton-looking children have Marasmus, they lack enough food to eat.
Both kinds of children and babies are treated in our Jesus Healing Center, as well as children with worms, burns, etc. We treat a lot of children in our “Mobile Medical Clinics” that reach into the regions beyond “where there is no doctor or nurse, not even an aspirin.”
We are thankful to Joyce Meyer Ministries — Hand of Hope who sponsors the operating cost of our Jesus Healing Center Clinic each month, and we are thankful to our friends who sponsor “Mobile Clinics” to the “regions beyond.” And, we are thankful to organizations such as MAP International and International Aid, who donated wonderful medicines that we can use in our Clinics and share with others. It takes all of us, working together, to feed and care for children, who suffer the most, here in Haiti. Thank you, everyone and God bless you. Bobby and Sherry

“Did you know that God is ‘jealous’ of you?” You probably never thought about that, and neither did I, but Exodus 34:14 says, “For thou shalt worship no other God: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.” Wow! He is “jealous” of you! He loves you so very, very much that He wants you to love Him back. “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” — Matthew 22:37 — Do you love the Lord as much as you do your friends? Do you spend “as much time with Him, as you do Facebook?” God is a jealous God. He wants your “quiet time” with Him. He wants to talk with you, and know your heart and bless you, but He cannot do it when other things distract us. Remember today, spend as much time “talking to God” as you do “talking to your friends on Facebook” and see if there are not wonderful changes in your life. We can make “anything” a “God.” But remember, our God is jealous of you because He loves you! So do we! Sherry

This little girl is poor, hungry and very malnourished. She has dry skin, red hair, lifeless eyes, and a dry mouth. These are the children here in Haiti we are trying to feed each day. This is not always easy. Some areas we work in are extremely dangerous and we have to have Security or Haitian Police to guard us. Other areas are dangerous because of the high mountain roads, or other obstacles we face, but God always gives us grace. We want to thank those of you, who help us each month, no matter if your gift is large or small…Thank you! Remember, it is not the size of the gift that determines the sacrifice, it is “how much you have left over after you give” that determines the sacrifice. Thank you so much… little is much when God is in it. Sherry
