After an amazing time with the brothers of the Missionaries of Poor and the inmates of four homes for seniors, orphaned children, HIV positive kids, physically and mentally challenged - all abandoned and many sick, the 13 member team from our parish will start our return trip today at 3.18pm by AA flight from Cap Haitien, Haiti.
We thank our compassionate God for this opportunity to serve God's poor on behalf of our church, keeping us safe and healthy and also for the life changing experience. There were also two young ladies from Canada serving along with us. They are in the picture with us.
Please say a prayer for all the brothers and volunteers of this house so that they will stay firm in their religious vocation and the inmates they daily take care of in the homes for the poor that they run.
We remembered you all in our prayers and Masses. As we followed the time table of the brothers, we could pray five times a day besides 7 hours of services. We have wifi in a common area and that has been a big blessing.
We should plan to send more batches to this place as they are in need of more medical volunteers. Some of the inmates have not seen a medical person in 10 years! Many of the teachable children, brothers and volunteers need to learn English. The needs are never ending!
So big is the harvest and laborers are few. Please pray to the Lord of the harvest to send more missionaries to places like this.
Please pray for our safe return also.
With loving regards,
Fr Thadeus Achan,
Florance Thomas and team.
