A mission team from Calvary Chapel Yorba Linda recently ventured out to the Cap-Haitien church as part of their week long visit with Cross to Light. Their goal was to provide a free medical clinic for several days to the people at the church and surrounding area. The Cap-Haitien church plant is pastored by Leo Azilien, a Cross to Light graduate and Cap-Haitien, Haiti native. Pastor Leo was thrilled to host this medical outreach event. Part of the church plant building plan is to build an extension to the church for a medical facility for medical outreaches. Pastor Leo explains that there is a huge need for medical services for the people of Cap-Haitien. There are currently only two hospitals for the more then 300,000 people. Many of the people cannot afford the medical services provided by these hospitals and there is no national medical coverage or assistance at this time. Pastors Leo’s dream is to offer the people a $1 per visit medical service which will help pay for a small portion of the cost of running the medical clinic along with donations.
The team from Calvary Chapel Yorba Linda was thrilled to be able to provide medical help to the people in the area. It was open to all. The team had an unending line of people in desperate need of medical attention. Help was limited without the medical facility but basic triage assistance was given. Besides assisting the team’s Doctor, the team was able to share the gospel and pray with people that were waiting.
