A Multitude of Volunteers

In April we had a visit from potential missionary candidates Ed and Pat Gilsbach.  Ed is familiar with most aspects of construction and very handy.  He will take on the task of maintaining and building our complex.  Pat has been an administrative assistant most of her adult life and will be a huge help in that area of the clinic.  They had spent a year in Haiti, both before and after the earthquake, so were familiar with the challenges of working and living in Haiti.  We are blessed to receive them back fulltime in September!

Dr. Keith and Donna Proctor visited in May to also consider long term mission work with HHM.  Keith is an occupational medicine doctor with the military.  Alysa and Elizabeth came to work as well.  Alysa was a medical student and Elizabeth a graduate nurse.  Dr. Jonathan Berg and his wife Laurie worked with us for a week in May.  Jonathan is a family practioner.  Emily’s family came to visit at the end of May, blessing her with their fellowship.  Andy is a JAG lawyer but made himself useful fixing things in the guesthouse and doing some IT work on internet systems.  Anna and Elizabeth worked with Emily in the clinic .  In June, Jessica Friessen left us after 3 months of faithful service in the nursing department.   What a big help she had been to Emily.  Dr. Rachel Stevens, the Wilkins daughter and her family, came to work in the clinic in June as well.    Their daughter Claire enjoyed helping both mom and dad in various ways.   When they left, they flew with Dr. Wilkins to LA where HHM had a booth at a medical missions conference for the weekend.  Katy Milnes, a friend of Marie’s, came with a couple friends in June as well.  They were a big help in the clinic.

Construction News

In May Garrett Bosse arrived to help put the roof on the pharmacy building.  He is Emily Hughes’s fiance and an engineer.  He built the trusses for the pharmacy with the help of the construction crew and then put them up and covered them.  Soon after Garrett left Philip Stevens, Rachel’s husband arrived to wire the pharmacy.  Bos Tingue and his crew finished the pharmacy in June.

OneEgg Haiti

June 22 Sally Todd got word that OneEgg Haiti would be working to help us supply an egg a day to children needing protein to improve their nutrition.  This will be added to the other products Sally uses to treat children from moderate to severe malnutrition.




Moving Into the New Pharmacy

At the end of June we moved the pharmacy over into the new building.  It was so nice and new and clean.  Little by little, the final details were finished and they now have a bathroom, locked narcotics cabinet, and storage area.   Most of the work for this building was supervised by Bos Tingue and his crew of construction workers.  The big move took place over the weekend and we didn’t really even have to close it down to do so.  A couple volunteer pharmacy students, Amber and Panli,  helped us tremendously that next week in getting everything organized.
