Medical team enters Haiti for a third time since the quake

By September 10, 2010

Haiti (MNN) — Since the January 12 earthquake, HCJB Global has been involved with medical efforts in Haiti. One medical team from Ecuador is just concluding their third medical visit to the country.

The HCJB Global Hands team now in Haiti consists of eight members: three nurses, four doctors, and leader Alex Weir. It has been difficult to provide medical attention to those who need it most, so this time around, the team was able to partner with Samaritan's Purse to work at a clinic from August 28 until tomorrow, September 11.

The clinic is in a notoriously dangerous community in Cite Soleil. The clinic, run by Haiti Outreach Mission, is closely knit with other ministries which include a school and a local church.

"There will definitely be a spiritual side to the ministry we do," said Weir before the team left for Haiti in August. "At patient registration when we check their weight, height, and vital signs, there will be a question on the check-in sheet asking for prayer requests. I'm sure the Lord will help us use this question as a springboard to talk about spiritual matters."

Pray that the people who have shared their prayer requests over the past two weeks would come to a clear understanding of the truth. Pray that the Lord would indeed use the numerous conversations that surely took place as a springboard for beautiful new lives in Him. Pray for the team's last day in Haiti to be effective, as well.
