Written by Susan W. Cook, RN, a member of the March 2009 medical team:
It’s now been more than a week since my return from Terre Blanche and the reflections of this week are still fresh on my mind. It was an extraordinary week with a lot of miracles from God. Surely the presence of God was in this place.
I felt the mighty power and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. I could feel God’s presence and the touch of angels’ wings on morning runs, friendship, devotional times on the rooftop, in the Clinic of Hope as medical care brought hope to many, and smiles from the children in school just from a touch and hug. This brought unexplainable peace and joy amongst our Haitian brothers and sisters.
Simply stating, I prayed to God often for what would be revealed during this week. Within the Clinic of Hope you could hear crying babies and children, loud voices of men and moaning from women as they were getting ready to give birth of a new life.
We were a remarkable team from both the east and west of the United States. Every team member had the same vision to bring comfort, peace, healing and joy to these people. Many physical, emotional and spiritual needs were mended that week. I feel so blessed to have been a part of this amazing team. I was humbled by God’s grace as I saw His glory in others.
I pray … Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 64:8)
