photos - various - part a

A week ago we brought a pregnant mother to Medecins Sans Frontieres Maternity Hospital after she wasn't able to deliver her baby at home. When we picked her up she was not doing very well. Her eyes were yellow and she was week. She had a healthy baby boy!

The mother received excellent care at the hospital. They kept her there for one week. Now she is back to doing her motherly duties for the family. She was preparing a meal for her family when I visited. The family is very poor. They have one bed and what you see on the floor. Pray for the poor struggling to live here in Haiti. We give the Lord thanks that mother and child are both well.

"Cousin Johnny" who is Fedner's cousin from Jeremie came to visit bearing gifts! One of these gifts was a rooster for Manu.

Another gift was a rooster and chicken for Benson. The children enjoy looking after their new pets. I can't wait to eat them!

This gift of food is called "labapen" in creole. It is sort of like chestnuts. You peel the covering and then boil it. Everybody enjoyed eating them!
