Dear Loved Ones,

Greeting. We are coming to thank you all of you the supporters of mission around the world. Your support does not go in vain. It has saved life and will continue to save lives.

The bad storm we had lately in our country destroyed the roof of the Haitian Baptist Convention eye clinic. This clinic has been the backbone for many poor patients to receive quality care in a country with no insurance for the poor. It was urgent that we repair the roof before the next rain destroyed the eye equipment.

Thanks to your support of International Ministries of American Baptist Churches around the world, thanks to the understanding of all those working day and night in our office, our cry was given priority and today the eye clinic is covered with  a brand new roof. Its ministry is continuing without no interruption. And its equipment saved.

On behalf of all our past and present patients, we say MESI AMPIL (thanks a lot).

Serving Him in Haiti,

Nzunga & Kihomi

Dear Friends,

I’m sure we can all relate to this story.  They have been working for some time to restore the other half the eye clinic we came into possession of recently.  Then a storm comes along and leaks show up in the old roof.  How many times have we saved up our money to do one thing and then right after it is done we discover another problem.  Life!

I have been in Haiti when it gets tropical storms.  It does not rain like that in Indiana.  Once the group I was with was inspecting water pumps and had walked several miles to a village because we could not drive across a river.  When we got there the skies opened up like I have never seen.  We had to get back across the river before it flooded so our phones, camera’s, etc. were sealed in plastic bags and off we went.  I have never been so soaked and our shoes were done for.  And this was a long way from the hurricanes they get! 

Roofs that are well attached are very important and even more so when the building contains expensive sensitive eye equipment.  Thankfully funds were found to fix it in time.  Thank you for your partnership in this vital ministry.

In His name,

Dennis Shewell
