Heartline Update

It has been a busy day and although it is difficult to believe, so many of the injuries that we saw today were worse than what we saw yesterday.  I am amazed at the extent of peoples injuries even after one week after the earth quake shook Haiti.  We are seeing people with severe infections, open wound, and broken and fractured bones.  Today we saw a injury unrelated to the earthquake as a young man was brought to the clinic after having his hand cut off in a machete  fight.  The doctors had to amputate several inches above where the hand used to be.

The Lord continues to bring in supplies and medical people.  We had a good amount of supplies come in today along with some medical people and we have more supplies and medical people coming in tomorrow and on Friday.

Tomorrow we will begin to take people in from the infamous slum Cite Soleil and we expect to continue to see people with severe neglected injuries.
We have a great group of medical people who have joined with Heartline and we are so thrilled to have them.  They are such a blessing to us.  And for most of them they have never seen such injuries yet they continue to work in less than ideal situations and they just go with the flow.

I have encouraged our team to be like teflon  and not like velcro; to be diligent to go with the flow in a difficult situation.

We have lots of pictures to post and some videos as well.  We simply have not yet had the time.

Please pray and thank you for all that you are doing.

    It is late (midnight) in Seattle, Washington but my heart is breaking for you (my brothers and sisters in Jesus) in Haiti and for all the Haitian people. Right now I pray a special prayer over Heartline and for those you are treating/serving. May Jehova Rophe (the God who HEALS) do a miraculous work at your clinic tonight. I pray he would touch the victims and their wounds, I pray he would touch their hearts, and I pray for strength, peace, and joy, yes even joy, knowing that God has gifted and equipped you in the most incredible way to be his hands and feet when so many of us wish we could but cannot. May your fuel supply be multiplied 10 fold and your finances be filled to the brim by the One who is able to do and be more than we could ever possibly conceive of or imagine. May the hearts of the unsaved come to know the glorious, undeniable, love of Jesus. And in tragedy, may you find the most perfect will of our Savior. Even now, in the dead of night…you are not forgotten.
