First we started with a medical and evangelistic outreach trip to Haiti. We were a contingency of over 17, including doctors, dentists, preachers and support staff. This trip was sponsored by Saint Paul’s Baptist Church of West Chester Pennsylvania.
We were blessed to be able to minister to over 460 people, including 60 orphans in Port Au Prince and 400 people in Port Au Paix both times under less than ideal clinical settings. We treated everything to severe Tinea Capitis, Obstructed Duodenal Ulcer, obstructed bladder with suprapubic catheter insertion disease with malnutrition and Dental Abscesses with Facial Cellulitis. All of these would require intense medical and even surgical therapy. We had 7 days only. We traveled, slept and relieved ourselves in less than ideal conditions, but a lot of people smiled!
