Pray for Kristy Engel providing for health needs in Jesus' name in the Dominican Republic.

October 5, 2011

Kristy works with the Good Samaritan Hospital in La Romana, ministering to Haitians who are among the poorest in the country. She travels daily to batey (work camp) villages and barrios providing medical attention where so many have been unwilling or unable to offer these services.

She writes: As is always the case in La Romana, there are about 100 things going on at once!  This year has been no different.  Here are a few updates to the projects and the people I have written about in the few months...

In February, we had the honor of receiving a visiting pediatric cardiologist from Hasbro Children's Hospital in Rhode Island.  Dr. Ziegler was able to consult and recommend treatment for several pediatric patients with severe heart defects.  I am proud to say that we have now arranged for several of those children to be treated by Dr. Quinn at Maine Medical Center in Portland, ME!  Thank you for all of your prayers and concern over these young ones.

Unfortunately, one of the children I wrote to you about, Miguel, was unable to find treatment either in the Dominican Republic or in the United States.  He has enough heart and lung damage to make his surgical risk too high to consider for treatment.  Please Miguel and his family in your prayers.  We will help as much as is possible to keep him comfortable and continue to accept donations for patients such as Miguel.

The hospital continues to expand its building and seek out new ways of providing advanced care.  …  We need many prayers for all of these projects as well as your help through work teams, funding and collaboration. 

  • Pray for Kristy and for those who serve Christ with her at La Romana, for physical, emotional and spiritual strength.
