Day 4

We went to Tapyo in the mountains today. Had about 25 people waiting. I was able to share how much God loves them with Innocent translating. One lady accepted Jesus for the first time. We had some rechecks for Diabetes, and Nan caught one new case with a CBG of 512. Had a recheck of a shotgun wound which appears to be healing as the buckshot works its way out. Several little ones with infections. Dr. Hamaker had a malaria case. Finished up at Cabaret and back to house where we will count pills tonight.

Day 3

While Team Mercy #12 had to remain at the compound on Monday due to protests over high gas prices, they were able to help at the fixed clinic in Cabaret on Tuesday and at the orphanage in Titanyen where Anna Shook made a new friend.

3:40 PM update from Haiti

Day 1 is anticlimactic here in Bon Repos. Due to the planned strike over gas prices, Vlad was not able to get to us. Protestors blocked roads and threatened violence. This caused patients to stay home. He had only 2 at the fixed clinic and some staff couldn’t get to work. We spent a quiet day sorting and counting metformin and clothes. From the roof we heard distant gunfire in the morning. Only a couple shots. Possibly some Smoke from burning tires off toward port au prince. Kids didn’t go to school. Hopefully tomorrow will be more active.

We are staying upstairs, good breeze this am but muggy and overcast now. I will see if I can send some pics later, though we haven’t been anywhere yet! Blessings, Chris

Team #12 arrived safely

2/8/15 Physician Assistant Chris Newcomb reported: “Everything went well travel-wise, and all the meds made it through! We paid a new $10 “tourism fee” at customs which was new. There are lights on the mountain where the Tent City is. They have some power now. Thanks for the prayers; they worked!” Chris
