Happy New Year to you all as we look to a bright future in Haiti. 2019 is brimming with the possibility of greater impact in this cherished country. In 2018 Haiti has experienced more political turmoil than it has in many years. This could be an opportunity to worry and fear about the future or (and I would lean more toward this “OR”) it is an indication that Haiti is ready for greater break through to becoming the prosperous and elegant island that God has always intended it to be.
From Vine Ministry to you, your family and friends a Very Merry Christmas and an exciting New Year, full of promise, blessing and rich abundance. Whether you are young or old, experienced or just starting out may the Peace that passes understanding cover you and live in you this Christmas season and New Year.
Thanksgiving is a time of thoughtful reflection and giving thanks for everything God has done this last year. Looking back over 2018 there are many things for which we are grateful, especially two.
The first being the purchase and installation of an amazing Sonogram machine. Along with this medical equipment was the critical training of the doctors at the Clinic to use this machine in their practice.
Within the last year, a very talented Haitian dentist, Dr. Noel, has established her office at the LeRoy Dick Clinic. Tools and materials are not easy to purchase in Haiti and often Dr. Noel must travel outside the country to keep her dental office supplied. A local retired dentist, Dr. Russell Gilliom, has taken a deep interest in her work. Dr. Gilliom asked her what she needed. He and friends of Blue River Church of the Brethren purchased most of what she asked for. I was able to take these with me to Haiti on my last trip in August.
