If you haven't had a chance yet, check out Kristy's most recent blog note, posted yesterday.  It tells a bit about what the team encountered last week as they cared for many in Port-au-Prince, touching hurting people with love and hope in the name of Jesus.

Late last night (Feb. 1) a team of about 80 persons departed by bus from La Romana to return to Haiti.  In addition to Kristy, the team includes medical personnel (Dominican and North American), as well as ABC missionaries Ketly and Vital Pierre, and Adalia Schellinger-Gutierrez.

While in Port-au-Prince today, the team learned that they will be going tomorrow (Wednesday) into a new location that is totally devastated.  In this area, the location where they will be setting up and holding the clinic seems to be a good one.  However, the town itself is completely destroyed - buildings are in shambles with numerous bodies still beneath the ruble.  This location is being described to the team as the "worst of the worst," which seems beyond comprehension to most of us.

Your prayers are appreciated for the team:
•    as they prepare to minister in this incredibly difficult setting;
•    that they would use the very best of their medical gifts and skills, with gentleness and compassion;
•    that the team would work well together;
•    that they will rest well and stay healthy; and
•    that the love of Christ would be evident in all they do.
With Appreciation For Your Support,

Rev. Soozi Whitten Ford, Convener
