There is still many who need water. The city doesn't provide water everyday. There are times the city doesn't supply water for 4 to 5 days. More and more people come to get water at our mission compound. We still supply thousands of gallons of water daily.

Dr. Todd Taylor and Dr. John Gehman are looking at an object that was retrieved from a little girls nose. The mother said she couldn't breathe because there was an object up her nose. Dr. Taylor began pulling the object out and it was several inches long and looked like an earthworm. It is curled up as he is holding it with tweasers.
This man is a neighbor at our compound in Leogane. He was injured when his house fell on him at the time of the earthquake. He had a head injury and he could not walk. We went to his home to take care of him. There is a picture of Vanessa Thompson dressing his wounds in the January blog. The article was labeled (Vanessa treats a head wound).
The man came to visit us and to thank us for the help that he received. We were so happy to see him doing so well.

A new team came by bus again today. This team will be here to finish up the month of February. They too had a long trip. We are at the bus station waiting on another member of the team. He came on the following bus with the remainder of the luggage.
This crippled crawled up to the door of the mobile clinic. I told her to go on and make her way to one of the doctors. Dr. David received her openly. She crawls everywhere on the ground. She was so happy for the attention. I know the lady and she always comes around when I am in the area.
There is a high demand for mobile clinics. The team left after eating the noon meal for another wild adventure. The road reminded one of a motorcross race track and we went to a neighborhood of less fortunate people. There were no complaints for the team was eager to help these needy people.

This is a tough case for the doctors. The baby was born the day of the earthquake. She was a twin. The other baby died and she is very ill and very tiny. I trust there is something we can do to save this little one.

The team had many suitcases filled with food and medical supplies. I am very thankful for the supplies. It is quite a privilege to have the doctors, nurses, medical assistants, medical personel, and labourers come to assist us in this time of crisis. God supplies the persons for the need.

The team went to the bus station early this morning to get a bus to the Dominican Republic. They will then get a flight home. They are a very gifted group and God used them to help those in need this past week. We miss you Jennifer Moyer, Janice Springman, Dr. Dan McKinley, Brenda Habecker, and Jonathan Springer. I am standing in the picture (2nd from the right).

The team was distracted this morning by an expecting mother. She was in labour. Breakfast was ready but it would have to wait. Church was in session and there were a few medical workers that would be absent from the services. Our little buddy was born this Valentines Day morning. Baby boy and mother are doing fine. This was a special moment for the medical team. All of them took the opportunity to hold this precious little fellow in their arms.
Jonathan is examinating a patient. This was a very organized group. They kept the crowd back so that the doctors could work.

Janice Springman had a busy day. There were more that 150 numbers given to patients today. Mothers used the number to be examined along with one or two children. The total patients that were examined today well exceeds that number.
