Here we are at the end of the week. It is hard to believe that the team will be heading home tomorrow morning. And we have nothing but great things to report on the work of this team here at Nehemiah Vision Ministries.
With the outdoor school kitchen completed, a number of the men set their sights on completing the picket fence around the prayer garden. Believe me, digging holes in the hard Haitian ground is difficult work. But the results are beautiful and the prayer garden will be a blessing to so many in the months and years to come.
We conducted our second vision clinic today. It was held on the NVM compound for folks from the nearby community of Chambrun and surrounding area. We had a smaller group today but there were many who desperately needed glasses. 24 came through the clinic and 7 of them prayed to receive Jesus into their lives. What a rewarding work it is to help people with both their physical and spiritual sight!
In the afternoon the ladies helped Cheryl prepare for her next basket class in Onaville. Cloth strips must be cut so the ladies can wrap their ropes that eventually become beautiful baskets. And the men did some painting on the warehouse.
This has been a fantastic team and they have worked so hard all week. We want to thank them and all of you who have supported them financially and through your prayers. We pray for each of them as they return home that God will continue to use them in a mighty way in the lives of those around them. 63 people came into God’s Kingdom through their work here in Haiti. And the school has a beautiful kitchen that will be used to feed the 350 students every day. God is good. It was a privilege to serve him with these wonderful folks.
Thank you all for your prayers this week. We could not do this without your support.
Jim, Cheryl and the Girls
