More than just a job
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holly Spirit, teaching them to observe all I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age. Mat. 28:19-20.
Dear Loved Ones,
Greetings. Let me introduce you to Mr. Almeant Dieudonne. Dieudonne is the guy I hired in 2005 to clean the eye clinic. He was then a village boy who came to the city in hope of a good life. He has done a tremendous work. He knows how to clean the eye clinic and keeps all our toilettes clean on every hour and every day basis. Those who have seen and used our toilettes congratulate the staff every day. Slowly Dieudonne has conquered the admiration of all our staff. They send him buy everything the clinic needs. Dieudonne has become the person in charge of all the bank transactions.
Seeing his dedication, I recommended Dieudonne to the Cap-Haitian driving school. Today, he is not only the person who keeps the eye clinic clean but has become the eye clinic driver and the general watchman. He has learned to take care of our generator by turning it on and off depending on the needs.
This year, Dieudonne has been nominated the worker of the year by all of our staff.
He is the father of two small girls.
People like Mr. Dieudonne are many in Haiti. Those who are lucky to join a loving place to work and earn some income are very few. It is thanks to you, to your love and to your support that Dieudonne can feed his family, can learn new skills, and can build his esteem while looking to a bright tomorrow.
Nzunga & Kihomi.
This is a good example how of missionaries help one family at a time. Haiti has many problems that only the government can fix. That was also true of the world that Jesus arrived in. The Romans were brutal occupiers, but you will note that Jesus said very little about them. He concentrated on the spiritual and physical (healings) of individuals. Not only does Mr. Dieudonne have a good job (70% unemployed) but also is shown the love of God as his fellow colleagues honor him. You will also note how Nzunga emphasizes clean toilettes. This is a big deal in Haiti. The state of public restrooms is something you would have to see for yourselves, even in the churches. Normally beyond disgusting.
Thank you for your support that allows this clinic’s caring for others to continue to operate and set an excellent example in areas besides eye care.
