BUSY

Posted: September 20, 2010 in Uncategorized
Are these ever busy days at Heartline as we, today, reopen the field hospital to new and returning patients, and as we work on the newly purchased property.  Please don’t misunderstand me; I love being busy, in the fray, active, involved.  There is much to do and we are doing our best to glorify God’s name by our actions.

  • We on a regular day still have a handful patients that we have treated and cared for since the January 12th earthquake. 
  • The maternity program sees several dozen ladies a week for education, medical check ups, a meal, weekly vitamins, some with their newly born children. In the past several days two ladies have given birth at the center. The one today was a 16 year old that had 
  • Move over one street and you will find the Sewing Center where ladies attend sewing school, craft making classes and literacy classes.  It also serves as our Haitian Creations center where ladies make the purses that we sell online and here in Haiti.
  • Move about a 10 minute walk from the Sewing Center and you will come to the Heartline Guest House.  A beautiful place for visitors to be refreshed after a long day of working in Haiti.  It is here that our medical volunteers stay as well as guests from other organizations.  This Saturday our church Port au Prince Fellowship will be having a pancake breakfast there for couples and their children.
  • Move about three miles from there and you will come upon three acres of property that is being cleaned and prepared for what will be, what can be, as we lose sight to gain vision.
  • Moving back to the Sewing Center, if you walk along the side of the house to the back, you will find our office which is often crowd with people and busy with much activity.

AND NOW WE ARE RE OPENING THE HOSPITAL FIELD HOSPITAL

We in the next few weeks will:

  • See returning patients that are in need of surgery and follow up and new patients that require surgeries and we will transport them to the hospital for surgeries and they will recover at the Heartline Field Hospital.  We are looking at housing about 50 patients.
  • We, over the next few weeks, have nurses, doctors, PT’s and helpers coming in to help the hospital to run efficiently.
  • We above all will use this time to develop a loving, caring community and we will be careful to endeavor to be the hands of Jesus to those in our care.
PLEASE PRAY AND YOUR FINANCIAL GIVING REALLY WILL HELP
