Welcome to the Healing Haiti + Eagle Brook Mission Blog. We invite you to follow mission team members as they experience what God is doing both through them and in them while in the mission field of Haiti.
'For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

God's love: Alive and at work
When we arrived to the wound clinic site, a small crowd was already waiting for the sisters to arrive. Approximately 40 adults of mixed ages were plagued by the shingles... a condition in the US that often affects our senior or immune system repressed population.There was another group of about 30 adults perched on a ledge waiting for wound care. Feet and entire sides of legs were covered in gaping ulcers that were absent of skin. The individuals waited quietly for their soiled and secretion covered dressings to be changed. The majority of adults helped as we washed and re-dressed their appendages. Leaving with a appreciative "Merci" (thank you), they hobbled back to the streets having just been part of God's love that is at work and alive in Haiti.
