Good News at HAH

The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will …

HAH is Not on Autopilot

The challenges of working in a foreign country where resources are limited and political strife continues to threaten may never allow us to be on autopilot or operating by remote control. Hôpital Adventiste d’Haiti is a complex machine and we are not on a short or easy journey.  Strong headwinds slow us down and at …

Pandemic Update

On the afternoon of March 19 president Jovenal Moise of Haiti in a press conference announced the results of the first positive COVID test in Haiti.  At that moment he declared the Port au Prince airport closed and not another commercial passenger airplane has landed since that time.  I happened to be on a short …

January 12th

12 January, 2010 I finish a day of work at the Cure Hospital in Santo Domingo, jump on my motorcycle and head out for the evening commute.  This involves winding in between gridlocked vehicles jumping the curb a few times and finding any small path to make the 2 mile commute a little more efficient.  …

There is a lot of exciting stuff going on at HAH.  The Lord is blessing our feeble efforts in many ways.  Jonathan and his men worked like a Formula 1 pit crew this month in order to move some major projects forward.  Jonathan used my arrival from a 2 week trip to Loma Linda to …

THE WEEK IN PHOTOS:
Hôpital Adventiste

Although our hospital continues to improve, the situation beyond our walls continues to deteriorate.  The streets are a mess, protests and gangster control have locked down the country.  Schools are closed until January, banks and businesses are only open intermittently and getting supplies is very difficult. Trips across town and airport transfers are made with …

Hôpital Adventiste: Standing Strong Amidst Political Crisis

Monday I arrive at Port au Prince Aéroport Toussaint Louverture. Michel our hospital driver is running one hour late. Normally he is always on time but today he had to take a more circuitous route than normal to avoid the fiery barricades and mobs of people that have taken to the streets. People are riled …

Boot Camp Blast!

I wake up on Sabbath morning to enjoy a few peaceful moments under the mango tree, reflect on the events of the week and read a chapter in my French Bible. Sabbath is the only morning that we don’t have to hear the recently donated gas leaf blower start up at 620am. I also slept …
