Combat Terror

The days of the general population doubting the existence of COVID-19 in Haiti seem to have ended this week. The same report has been repeated to us over and over again: "Everyone has a fever right now...terrible body aches...itchy throats..." This report is from individuals, but no such report has come from the medical clinic. Those with fevers and suspicious symptoms seem to be staying home. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it does make it difficult to expect any kind of accurate statistics about the spread of the disease in the country. My heart goes out to the millions of people who have suddenly realized that this virus they'd heard so much about is not imaginary. Fear and terror h

770 Masks and Climbing

Lex and I are so grateful to all of you who have been so generously donating to have masks made for our friends in Haiti.

Moms and Nurses

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms! I hope you are enjoying time with family and maybe even finding some sunshine and a chance to go for a walk and enjoy the feeling of Spring.

I am praying that lovely weather will not set so well with the COVID-19 virus and

Masking in May

Happy May to you! Lex and I are praying for you. May this month be full of days of encouragement, joy, peace, and health! Good news...We've received donations to give out 700 masks so far! How awesome are you guys?!!! Please keep them coming! "Men anpil, chaj pa lou!" "Many hands make light work!" I want to tell you about our friend, Jess, from Westminster, MA. She's one of those very crafty people - you know, those amazing folks that can make beautiful things out of most anything? Yep, that's the one. Jess was already sewing face masks for people locally, during a 14-day quarantine period, when she heard of our face mask project at MOHI. Not wanting to profit off the pandemic, she d
