Josette is a 15 year old who has multiple fractures of her pelvis. She laid by a dusty road since the earthquake. We have stopped by frequently treating a wound on her back and getting her the nourishment she has desperately needed. Now she lies in a Red Cross Hospital which recently set up almost right across the road from us. She is not a candidate for surgery, but she will have a long painful recovery.

Tending to a mother who just gave birth to a bouncing baby boy! We could not understand a change in plans for today, until this mother-in-labor came to our clinic. Bro. Mobley is at the Airport to receive the next medical team coming in. The pastor who was to take us to a mobile clinic today never showed up. But God knew all about it.

This dear little three month old boy was brought to our mobile clinic critically ill. Pneumonia led to respiratory distress, which led to cardiac arrest. Lots of other problems presented themselves. We knew we needed to get him down to our main clinic, but had no time before he died. If we had just known one day sooner, no doubt we could have saved his life. The poor mother went hysterical and many tears were shed! Thanks for your prayerful support.
