Hello friends,

        We hope you have had a wonderful time of celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It was a wonderful time for Mary and I. Our Daughter Lori (husband Scott) and Son Justin were home with us for a few days and it was a great time of family and celebrating who Jesus is and the reason for His being. As I meditate on the new year and the opportunities which lie before me, I am evermore thinking about the command which Jesus left His followers  in Mathew 28; 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. As we are intentional about following Christ, we can not ignore this command. Some people have interpreted this to mean we have to get people saved, but as I look closer at this I believe Jesus was telling His followers to be learners of the Kingdom ways and who He is, and then He was telling them to use the classroom of life as an opportunity for coaching others in the ways of the Kingdom. The more I learn about discipleship, the more I realize I am the student and am always looking for what God is trying to teach me through others whether it is a child or someone living in an impoverished situation. I am trying to renew my mind, so that each person I meet, I can look at them through the lens of God's eyes, not through my own eyes, which would probably judge or ignore. I also realize that I cannot disciple or have a Kingdom impact on anyone who I am not in relationship with. Therefore as an intentional follower of Christ, I must be intentional about relationships and be careful that I do not defriend people just because they do not fit into my profile of what I think they should be.
        Lord today renew my mind to love people and see people through Your eyes and with your heart. Lord break my heart for the things which breaks your heart. Allow the mind of Christ to be in me as I re-present you to a lost and dying world. May I not withhold from anyone the love, grace, mercy and forgiveness which you have imparted to me that I may share with others. May I always be ready to learn and be ready to teach. I ask this in the precious name of Jesus amen.
       The mobile medical clinic has been used a few times and it is making a difference in Haiti. Attached are some pictures. we are very thankful for those who have put so much into this project. Please continue to pray for wisdom and insight for this. Also attached is a few words from Beaver about this maiden voyage of the clinic. The roof is on the clinic in Jubilee and the walls are being painted. We are excited about the opportunities this is offering the community of Jubilee.
       We are in need of starting the construction on the next wing of the school. Please continue to pray for the resources needed for this.
       God has set another opportunity before me and this evening I will be leaving for Nairobi Kenya for two weeks. I will be traveling with Tommy Burch from Jesus Ga. Tommy is connected with an organization called bringing miracles. Our mission will be to start construction on the first phase of a school for orphans. This is an inner city and slum area. You can view their website at bringingmiricles.org  I am looking forward to meeting new people and being an intentional disciple ready to learn and ready to teach as we operate in the classroom of life. Please be in prayer for us as we travel, meet new people and expand the Kingdom of God.

Maiden Voyage of the Mobile Klinik…

Last Friday and Saturday the communities of Grand Saline and Dauphin had cause to celebrate.  Friday morning and Saturday morning respectively, Amos pulled the reconfigured 40’ container to these communities. The container now boast a reception area, two exam rooms with sinks and exam tables,  a pharmacy and a shower, toilet bathroom.

The Klinik Mobile arrived to lines of waiting residences in need of medical consultation and treatment.  Haitian doctors and nurses attended those peacefully waiting in line till late in the afternoon.

Amos and Papouse helped with crowd control and were treated with honor as word passed through the crowd that they had brought the clinic to the village.  At night, a police security detail roled in to protect the clinic as Amos and Papouse slept inside.

Dr. Roberd Honore, Director of Health for the Artibonite department / district, visited each village to encourage his medical staff and appreciate the impact of the rolling clinic.   One young man that grew up in Dauphin was brought to tears as he spoke of the value that he felt as his birth place was served by the mobile clinic.

I am encouraged that the impact of this tool is being realized so quickly.  Thanks to everyone who made this possible.  Each dollar contributed, latch fastened to a door, new tires on the ‘head’ (Haitian term for the truck), the medical equipment and wound care supplies, went to good use last week-end.  The details of how we will work together to optimize this resource are becoming clearer as we explore the emerging possibilities that this gift brings.

Glory to God, as His sons and daughters listen and obey his voice!
