I am excited to announce that so far, with your help, we have raised $48,000 towards the future birthing center! Even though we still have much more money to raise, we have no doubt the finances will be provided. We are very pleased with the amount of money we have raised in a year, and look forward to watching God provide the finances through you and other supporters!
Our midwives are continuing to keep busy providing midwifery care to families. See below for the May midwifery care stats. We have officially hired another midwife and look forward to her beginning her position July 1, 2018! We will be officially introducing her to everyone via email and social media in the near future–so follow along!
My family, along with 6 team members, are currently in Miami awaiting to board a flight to Port au Prince. Throughout the week we will be holding 3 days of VBS for the primary school, graduation for the level 1 adult education program and kindergarten graduation. I will also be teaching lessons (early/active labor, when to call the midwife, etc.) to the expectant women in the midwifery care program.
We are looking forward to an amazing week serving the community. Please keep the team, leaders and community in prayer!
