7 year old boy needs help - Post 2

Monday April 21, 2014

Dear Friends,

As you know we published a situation about a little boy who needed surgery.  His parents are graduates of Johnny Daniels' school in Puerto Rico.  They left the school and became missionaries in the Guyanan jungle among the Amerindians.

The boy had a botched circumcision which led to two other surgeries, both of which failed.  We appealed to you and ideas flowed into us.  Thank you for caring for this family.

One idea sent to us has brought possible success.  One of the doctors working with ORH and a great friend, Elizabeth Drum, contacted that she would be the anesthesiologist on a team of American surgeons going to Haiti, May 1, 2014.  Through her work we have received the following email.

"Hi Jan,
Yes, you may have the family travel to Hopital Espoir for evaluation. A pre-evaluation at the hospital to be sure Ethan is healthy for surgery would be best and this can be done at the hospital the week prior to our arrival. A physician will evaluate the child and lab work will be completed on Ethan. Dr. Clanton Harrison can then evaluate Ethan upon our arrival on May 1 and put Ethan on the surgery schedule. We will let the hospital know to expect the Johanitans.
Thank you!
Debbie Wisdom, BA, RN, LNCC
Executive Director, LEAP"

If all goes well Ethan's surgery will be done by an American team in Haiti.  OUR GOD IS SO GOOD.

Here are the needs
1)  We must raise at least $4000.00 for costs for the families travel costs, food, and lodging while the surgery is done and the follow-up afterwards.  This amount could go up just a little.  By faith, ORH will send this money so they can travel.
2.)  We must pray they can get the flights in time to reach Haiti for evaluation to be done.
3.)  Pray for the family.
4.)  Pray for the doctors and staff who will do the surgery.

If you can help.  We need it.  ORH must buy air tickets for the Albania team.  This will be a strong draw on our funds, plus releasing the $4000.00.
