Shoes for Christmas

0

December 27th was a day like no other. . . shopping day! In Haiti shopping is quite different that in the U.S. Items can be difficult to find and choice is limited. On the morning we set out for Port-au-Prince to purchase 56 pairs of shoes, I knew I was in for an adventure like […]

Macomb Medical Clinic

Medical care is a great need in Macomb. In February our nurses held a three-day medical clinic serving the children and elderly in our feeding program and school and their families; the last day the clinic was open to the community. Many were blessed as they received the medical attention and treatment from our medical […]

A Bathroom for the Golden Girls of Haiti

In a small housing unit in Gressier, Haiti live three beautiful, eldely women. These women are strong in spirit, but physically weak. Like many of the elderly who do not have families to provide for them and meet their basic needs of food, cleanliness, etc., they are often abused and victimized. In Haiti these elderly […]

God is Moving

I am overwhelmed by and in awe of all the ways God is using people to love on the community of Macomb. Just this month over 120 bottles of prenatal/postnatal vitamins were donated. Someone else donated months and months of children’s vitamins for the feeding program. The Plymouth Ambulance Service donated a large quantity of […]
