Spiritual Prep

In Northwest Haiti, medical emergencies are as commonplace as dusty roads. There is almost no more urgent or tangible way Northwest Haiti Christian Mission shares Christ’s love than treating the sick.  Their medical ministry has grown from a small collection of medicines in the 1980s, to a far-reaching operation that today includes a general clinic, two operating rooms, a 24-hour birthing center, an ophthalmology clinic, a laboratory and a pharmacy. In addition, NWHCM medical teams regularly travel to offer mobile clinics in communities across the region.  The medical services have always been the most affordable in the area, and they offer care regardless of ability to pay.  Most of NWHCM’s facilities are staffed year-round by trained Haitian doctors and nurses.  Specialized surgeries are scheduled throughout the year with the help of visiting surgical teams.  Since its inception, our clinic has been a landmark in the region and has treated thousands of patients, some of whom walked for days from remote towns to get there.  “This is the work we are “running” to suport.  Thanks for yours!  

Matt 25:43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’  44“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’  45“He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

 Training Prep

Ran 4 miles last night at a 10:15 pace and rode the road bike for 5 miles.  Felt better so the layoff and whirlpool helped.  Don’t know about you but the season seems to have more allergy making stuff in the air than normal.  At times it feels like I have a burr in my nose.  Hear that from a lot of people.  Sure is nice weather.  Hope it holds till May 8th.
