Jim Hulstedt returned to Haiti with Bill and spent three weeks helping at the base. We are so grateful for his friendship and hard work with JUST MERCY.
The base is almost complete!
We were glad to get the outhouse and shower functioning. (Yes, you have to haul water to the shower. :) )
People come on almost a daily basis seeking first aid and medical help.
The deck is a great place to show the Jesus Film!
Lumber on Ile a Vache is hand hewn out of logs, a very time consuming and material wasting endeavor. We are trying to raise money in November for a small portable sawmill that is being given us at a fraction of it's real cost and being shipped to Haiti in January. If you can help with funds for this endeavor, please do.
The village bakery had not operated for months. Bill found out they just needed a generator to start their ovens and loaned them ours.
Fresh bread again for the island.
We did another gift distribution in the mountains, this time in Ballisage.
Boxes for distributions on the island travel by boat.
We did OCC distributions on two small islands plus one in our village of Kakok on Ile a Vache.
The children are always thrilled with the OCC gifts.
This is the daughter of one of the Haitians who works with us on Kakok.
This is a view of the base from the boat.
Back in Fonds-Parisien, Bill got to meet our new "grand-daughter", Lohan.
