Kihomi and Nzunga
Kihomi and Nzunga serve as a vital link between International Ministries and the Haitian Baptist Convention. Nzunga teaches theology at the Christian University of Northern Haiti, trains assistant professors in teaching and writing books, administers a scholarship program, and visits and preaches in churches. He also administers the "Kids for Kids" goat project that provides needed school and personal supplies for children and university students. Kihomi works with families in the areas of counseling, family planning, and women's health issues. She also coordinates and advises the women's association of the Haitian Baptist Convention, representing women of all the Baptist denominations of Haiti at international conferences.
Nzunga writes: Olibrice Acelene, 19 years old, is from the village of Borgne. At 19 years old, she is in 4th grade elementary school instead of high school senior. Her school performance is 5/10 or she only passes half of what she should. She came to our eye clinic because she could not see well and her vision was failing. After a throughout checkup, our eye doctor determined that Acelene was suffering from a bilateral congenital cataract more strongly pronounced in right eye. At the examination, she could only see the hand motion with her right eye and could count fingers at 6 feet with her left eye.
The doctor proposed an immediate operation and Acelene accepted the idea. We praise God that this ministry of saving sights happens thanks to the support of funds for restoring sights to the children. We hope that Acelene will regain her vision and be able to better her grades and continue her studies. God is not through with her yet.
Thank you for your support and your prayers for the eye clinic.
