After 14 years of medical mission work at the Good Samaritan Hospital, Steve as a doctor and Nancy as a nurse, the Haitian Baptist Convention invited the Jameses to return to Haiti to help with medical assistance to Christian faith based community health centers. Working as medical consultants, Nancy and Steve serve as members of local Christian heath teams providing physical, mental, and spiritual health in Jesus’ name to those suffering in darkness. They feel blessed to be a part of God’s healing work in the world. Nancy and Steve are supported as commissioned missionaries working jointly with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and American Baptist International Ministries and their Mission Partnership Team and Network. The Jameses have six children: Kirstin, Miriam, Carrie, Andrew, Asia and Micah.
They write – Greetings dear friends and family,
We are excited to let you know that on January 25 we returned to full time service in Haiti! It was mid-December when we learned that the financial support required to return to the field was either pledged or in hand. The Board of International Ministries then voted on December 31 to call us for another two years of service in Haiti where we will continue our holistic health ministries and also be ready to respond to requests for medical ministry assistance in fields outside of Haiti.
We are amazed, humbled by and grateful for the outpouring of love and support with which we have been blessed. Thank you to so many of you who have worked with, prayed for, financially supported, and encouraged us over many years.
We are happy to be “home” and settling into the guesthouse on the university campus of UCNH in Haut Limbé. In the short time here we have been busy getting organized and helping to host teams. Steve is consulting in two clinics as well as trying to get our two trucks repaired.
We will keep you updated as the work unfolds.
