Jeff Leathersich - Update

We arrived in Port-au-Prince at the US Embassy at 9:00 AM Saturday after a 10-hour bus ride from Santo Domingo. We went right to work setting up a field hospital at a school, I say hospital because we are prepared run 24/7 with inpatient beds. We have 8 emergency beds, can do about 10 inpatient, and there are two surgeons coming next week.

The house we are staying at experienced minor damage, you can see cracks in the walls; other houses around us were destroyed. The house we are staying at and the ministry we are working with is called Nehemiah's Vision an arm of Campus Crusade for Chris. Traveling through the city today was long, hot and dry with many soldiers from the UN and US everywhere. We have more work to do on set up tomorrow, and Monday we will open the hospital. We will also be splitting up and rotating though 4 refugee camps in our area.

I will keep you apprised as time and technology allow. We are only getting rare cell phone reception and Internet access. Please keep us all in prayer.
