Treating Termites in Haiti 😫

On July 13, we started to get our suitcases ready for our return to the States. We noticed something brown growing on one of them. As we looked closer, we saw tiny worm-like bugs. 

We washed the suitcase immediately and did some research on the internet. We noticed in the closet where we keep the suitcases that there were lines that looked like dirt in different places.

Then we learned that we have termites. So we decided to clean everything and asked for help from Fritz (our Mother Angela Clinic driver). We began looking for the nest, and, when we saw it, we realized that we needed to get rid of the closet.

But then we saw another nest of them in the other closet and realized the whole thing had to be taken down. The termites were everywhere–in the doors, in the side panels. They were literally everywhere.

After everything was taken down and out of the room, the toilet pipe burst; and we had water everywhere. Thanks be to God, we had help! We called our plumber, and he came immediately.
Well, hours later, after everything was cleaned, we put things back in the room, only to find out that now we didn’t have any water.

Eric returns to Jacmel to share his expertise!

The week of June 27-30, our dear friend, Eric Moyner from Florida, was with us a few days to work with the Mother Angela Clinic and to share another surprise. 

Eric had created a program and placed all our medical records for our patients in a database using iPads. He worked with our doctors, nurse and pharmacist in updating the program and covering other questions and problems they may have had. Eric’s parish in Florida twins with St. Yves, a parish in Jacmel; and they have built a clinic for the people of St. Yves. Their nurse, Annette, also participated in the meeting in order to learn the program. We thank Eric for being a part of the Felician Haiti Mission, working with Haitians and empowering them to help themselves.

Eric also shared with us a wonderful learning program for our kids called, Kahn Academy Program. It offers online classes, in French, for different levels of learning for children through high school. We already did a workshop shop with our teens who will be working with our smaller kids. This is another marvelous blessing from the Lord! Thank you, Eric, for walking with us here in Jacmel.
