It is Tuesday at NVM in Haiti. The GAiN team is starting their second work day. Here is a quick look at what they have done and are doing.
Yesterday we conducted a vision clinic on the NVM compound for the residents of Chambrun. We tested 41 and 4 of them received Jesus into their lives. This was a source of great joy for the team. Also many of them received new glass helping them with both distance and up close vision.
As we mentioned yesterday, one of the major projects this team is starting is remodeling the outdoor kitchen used to cook food for the 350 students who attend the NVM school. The design has been approved by Pastor Pierre and the work has begun. Here you see the men preparing a temporary place for the ladies to cook during the construction period and the ladies are sanding one of the containers that will soon be painted.
Most of the teams that come to Haiti make the 1/4-mile hike down the road to visit the NVM children’s home in Chambrun. We took the team there yesterday afternoon. The kids always enjoy playing with the team members. We also had the opportunity to visit the home of Yolande who is one of the dedicated workers at NVM. It was a privilege to visit her home.
Including other teams at NVM this week there are nearly 100 team members. So many other projects are underway. Painting the warehouse and building a picket fence to go around the new prayer garden are among the projects. Many hands get a lot done!
Thanks for your interest and prayers. Tomorrow the GAiN team goes to another nearby community to conduct our second vision clinic. Please pray that God prepares the hearts of those who will come. The construction of the new outdoor kitchen will also continue. We will keep you posted.
