Our February 2015 mission trip was breathtaking. We spent two days in the village teaching: How to use thermometers to check for fever….. When to give and how much medication to give…. Safety of medications…. and Dispensing medications needed by the people in the village from the age of three weeks old to 80 years old.
The first day we traveled to the mountain houses to bring them hope faith and love. We also visit the local school on the first day and gave them the necessary medications. The second day we setup at the orphanage to serve the people in the village. They were so very happy to receive what we had for them. We also gave the children lollipops, toothbrushes and toothpastes. Like all children, they were more interested in getting the lollipops and pictures taking.
The mission trip was also emotional. It was very difficult to keep our eyes dry while talking to the twin boys’ grandmother whose mother had passed away on Thanksgivings day, right after giving birth. Meeting the boys for the first time was heartbreaking. We will continue to try our best to provide them with baby formula. We also met too many children in the village who are in need of our help, but we had to tell them not at this moment because we know financially we will not be able to help them.
We had some quality time with our children in the orphanage; we were able to teach them the words of God, we celebrated Nathanael’s 5th birthday and CGOLF’s 3rd anniversary. Watching the children growing from being shy, sad, malnourish to outspoken, happy and healthy children is priceless. The children are able to read and write, and are members of the church choir.
The most important thing that makes our mission trip special and unique, we slept, ate, drank, bathed, sweat and sometimes cried with the people who we served. We spent all three nights in the orphanage experiencing the lives and routines of our children.
We would like to say thank you to Haiti Clinic for providing us with so many medications especially the worms’ medications which many children in the village are suffering from. Dr. Chenet Cedric in Melbourne for providing us with many medications, toothpastes and toothbrushes. The staff at Sea Pines Rehab in Melbourne for providing the cough medications, Center Point Church for providing the thermometers and to all friends and family especially Jennifer Tossie from Haiti clinic who continue to work around the clock to provide our needs for the children in Haiti. Mrs. Madhu Longani and the other staff at Palm Bay Academy Elementary school and Space Coast Montessori preschool in Palm Bay for providing the children in the orphanage with undergarments and medications needed. And also thank you for all of you who kept us in your prayers doing our mission trip, with prayers everything is possible. Words cannot express how much we appreciated your support. May God continue to bless all of you.
With Deepest Gratitude, Thank You!
