Helping ‘The Least of These’ in the DR

Laura Matheny, R.N. – HOH Medical Outreach Coordinator 

We recently had the privilege of working alongside our long-time ministry partner Love A Child in the Dominican Republic where we provided medical and dental care to over 2,400 displaced Haitian people. Our team of medical and dental volunteers was able to demonstrate the love of Christ – even for ‘the least of these’ in the sugar cane fields of the Dominican Republic where many displaced Haitians not only work, but also live. These precious people are often treated very poorly and considered outcasts. We ministered to them by providing free medical/dental care, meals and prayer.

We saw so many amazing things take place during this outreach. A witchdoctor came to one of our clinics and fell to his knees accepting Christ. A crippled woman who used a cane to walk received prayer and was completely healed and no longer needed her cane. Another woman had a life-threatening infection in her body that was completely healed through treatment and prayer. It was a phenomenal week as we served the Lord together. Thank you partners for being our hands extended, allowing us to bring relief and hope to the hurting.
