God is our strong refuge; he is truly our helper in times of trouble. For this reason we do not fear when the earth shakes, and the mountains tumble into the depths of the sea, Psalm 46:1-2

Pou chèf sanba yo. Se yon chante pitit Kore yo pou yo chante tou dousman. Se Bondye ki tout pwoteksyon nou, se li menm ki tout fòs nou. Li toujou pare pou ban nou sekou lè nou anba tray. Psalm 46:1-2

Day... Wed?

We lost a tuff one last night. There have been fatalities, and everyone accepts that, but we had an ICU patient that had been fighting for 8 days. Around the clock care for a 20 year old with his family by his side and his passing is a mixed blessing, but its tuff on the staff. We are all talking and crying together but this one is still hard. "Buddy" won't be the last one this week, but the team was fully invested in him. His medical visa never came, and it probably wouldn't have mattered anyhow. We have to accept Gods will for "Buddy," it will just take time. Yesterday was such a great day... lets hope for another one of those tomorrow. We covet your prayers! It'll be easy to bury ourselves in work... its gonna be hard to come home.


  1. Marc - our thoughts and prayers are with you. Thinking of you each day.

  2. Glad to hear that you are doing well, staying busy, making an impact and having great days! I am praying for you all and anxious to hear more when you return. Keep the updates coming as you are able, although I'm sure it is tough as you are probably quite busy.

  3. Marc and team,
    We "hurt"with you. Thanks for being the hands, feet and heart of Jesus to those that you are ministering to in His name. We are standing in support and on our knees in prayer for all.

  4. All of us here at Elena's House are praying for you. We miss you, Mary! May God give you all strength in body and soul. - Jim
