Please pray

There has been a lot going on here at RHFH this week and we could definitely use your prayers.

- Click here and read about the child who was abandoned outside the gate.

- There is a nasty bug going around causing severe vomiting and diarrhea amongst the children in the Rescue Center. Several kids have fevers over 104. Normally it would be bad, but for a weak, malnourised, already sick child, it can be deadly.

- I caught the nasty bug. Or the bug caught me. Either way, I have been out of commission the past two days and have felt worthless. I am definitely on the uphill side but would ask you for quick healing and return of strength and energy.

- Today Licia had 3 severely dehydrated kids and only 2 bottles of IV fluids left. Mr. Zach was able to get 5 more bottles this afternoon but that is all there is now for everyone in the clinic and RC. Pray that God would provide more bottles of fluid!

- Thanks for praying for Loner! He was accepted to a place that takes care of premature babies. Please pray for the care he will get and pray that he survives.

- Pray for rest and renewed strength for Lori and Licia. They work so hard and there is always more to do.

Here are some more pictures from this beautiful place

This is a kitchen

This lady is making the food for all the kids in the RC. yummy!

This is Denny. He has lived at the RC for a long time. He has hydrocephaly and had a shunt placed a while back. He does very well and has no mental deficits! He needs a family...

These are several of the babies in the RC. Pray for them tonight!

Some of the kids laid down in the tall grass while we were walking

This picture does no justice to how stinken cute this kid is. His name is David, he was run over by a motorcycle last Thursday and broke his arm and was cut up on his face. He came back this week to be checked on!

Jesus said
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle, and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light"
Matthew 11: 28-30

gosh. can i ask you a question. being a nurse i know you see a lot of really terrible things. is there a point where you become numb or close to it to deal with all the cuts, malnutrition, and especailly death. do you try and look at it from a medical perspective? or does it hit hard every time? is haiti different than the u.s in that aspect? it hits harder in haiti than in the u.s. because there are so many more resources?
i pray God protects those who have the bug.
