Update: Chadasha Foundation #11

second update from Kris Meyer (his wife Mindy is serving with the team in Port au Prince)

Just got off the phone with Mindy again this evening. Many of the cell phone providers are allowing free calls to/from Haiti until the end of the month so comminiction has gotten easier. Today they traveled to remote villages away from the clinic. They saw mostly minor medical issues many related to dehydration. She did mention one man inparticular had a tennisball sized tumor on his head that they removed. She said the hardest thing is that numming medicines are is short supply and many people are having to suffer through thier surgery. Mindy also mentioned that the environment seems to becoming more violent as people are realizing they have lost everything.

She asked that we continue to pray for safety as they travel back to orphanges tomorrow and then head to Santa Domingo to prepare for the trip home.
I can't wait to see my wife again!
