There were several important highlights for me here at Bethesda Evangelical Mission (BEM) here in Les Cayes, Haiti.
Our first day in the field was when I first met Adam Henry. He is only four months old, and was nearing death around Christmas when he first arrived at Ducis (see the article “Christmas Miracle” above). He is now an alert, healthy child, flourishing at this RFA facility in Ducis.
Throughout this week the willingness of these children to interact with the BEM team members continues to be a delight. Another delight, just today, was the “RFA Symphony Orchestra” lead by Casey on trumpet with the remainder of the orchestra playing kazoos, harmonicas, tin whistles and many other “exotic” instruments.
Certainly, a special highlight for me today, was to be able to bring lights to the home at Ducis. There is no electric grid power available to them, and they must care for Adam Henry and 14 other RFA residents. Our simple 45 Watt Solar-Electric system was very much appreciated by Popi and Mommy, the parents at this home.
The residents at the Chantal home have known us for two years, and always welcome our presence.
