The final preparations were underway for the new Wesleyan Hospital of La Gonave. Beds and bedside tables were in each room. Most of the plumbing had been installed. I hung new shower curtains and set new visitor chairs by each bed. And then, out of the blue I heard a V.I.P. delegation was coming to visit. There was no time to do anything special. Whoever it was would have to see us as we were—hard at work.
By midmorning we heard the roar of a helicopter. Shortly thereafter, a large brigade of heavily armed police appeared, followed by TV and newspaper reporters loaded with cameras. Then, we saw the visitors—Haiti’s first lady, Mrs. Sophia Martelly, and the minister of health, Florence Guillau. The purpose of their visit was to present the hospital with a beautiful Toyota Land Cruiser ambulance, complete with first-aid equipment and sirens!
Pictured from left to right are the first lady, the hospital CEO, Mr. Daniel Bertrnd, myself, the medical director, Dr. Jean E. Ferdinand, and the minister of health. We thank the Haitian government and the Lord for such a wonderful provision!
