First, check out my blog post on the Compassion Blog!
In the final weeks of the year I will close out my stories about Haiti by posting some random photos of the trip, along with a few final thoughts — one for each day that I post. The first thought is here:
1. Although I had known about the Wesleyan mission complex on La Gonave for years, I had never imagined it to be so beautiful. What a wonderful place to visit or live, while reaching out to serve the people of Haiti.
It is especially amazing to consider how the hospital complex began. A photo on the wall of the dining hall tells it all.
The first clinic was a simple, small hut. The present hospital followed a few years later, and has served the island for many years.
Today, a new hospital is in progress, and what a wonderful improvement it will be. I’m thankful to Compassion UK for the oversight of this excellent facility.
I’m so glad that people care enough to help in these ways. Conditions in Haiti are improving little by little!
