Dr. Morquette greeting the patients and explaining the operation of the clinic
Dr. Grace and I took turns seeing patients and offering each other support, especially on conditions we do not often encounter in our clinical practices. While we had expected to offer our medical skills to help treat patients, with a limited formulary and no access to laboratory equipment, what we often found was the most powerful medicine was our ability to listen to patients talk about their physical and emotional suffering and to offer to pray with patients about it.

Thank you to everyone who prayed for our safety travelling to and from our mobile health clinic site. We look forward to going out again on Thursday to the north of Port-Au-Prince and continue to appreciate your prayers for the Haiti team!
