Guest Post by Dr. Wesley, Our Doctor in Haiti

I am in a country where it’s not easy for people with good health to get a good life, in a country where it is very difficult for people who have both eyes that work very well to get daily tasks completed.

It is unbelievable to imagine how difficult things are for those brothers and sisters with eye trouble who don’t have access to eye care.

In the North Region of Haiti where I have been living, there are more than 2 million people. There is only one opthamologist working in the government Hospital. People who need to see that Doctor for eye trouble have to wait for an appointment between 1 to 6 years. Some other private clinics near are very expensive so poor people can’t get treatment. Generally, they listen to radio to know when eye missionary doctors are coming to offer check ups, medicines, or glasses.

So you can imagine, how happy the people were in the north region, when Humbly I Serve/HIS Vision came with a project to start a sustain eye clinic in the Region of Cap Haitian. And also had the plans to train general Doctors in eye care.

Since HIS Vision started many mobile clinics, change has been realized in churches, orphanages, schools, and other general clinics. A lot of people have testified how great God is for that project. Many people have testified how their lives have been changed since they received some eye medicine or some glasses.

Actually in the general clinic where I work everyday, I receive more people asking when HIS Vision eye clinic will be definitely open.

Like that you can understand when people decide to help Humbly I Serve in the project, it’s something that you do for all the country with nice people. It is something that you do for the glory of the Lord, so that God will then bless you back.

New From Haiti

New From Haiti

The New York Times wrote an article on the desolate situations Haiti is currently facing. At five of Haiti’s 24 garment factories, it was found that “the majority of Haitian garment workers are being denied nearly a third of the wages they are legally due as a result of the factories’ theft of their income” (Group Says Haitian Garment Workers Are Shortchanged on Pay, 2013).

Who is Josiah Johnson?

Who is Josiah Johnson?

He is a speech communications major at Liberty University and Communications Intern at Humbly I Serve!

Through his time at Humbly I Serve thus far, Josiah has learned an astronomic amount about himself, his career field, and nonprofit organizations.

 

Himself:

Josiah strives to one day be the voice of a cartoon character. He has doubt telling himself he can’t, but hey someone has to do it!

He aspires to be Mel Blanc who is the voice of the characters we love from Looney Toons, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, and Roger Rabbit.

Working at Humbly I Serve has allowed him to realize that dream is attainable and no longer something far fetched.

This is Mel Blanc. See the similarities?

 

Career Field:

Josiah has learned how to work in groups and to put together campaigns, which is essential in any workforce!

Along with that, his writing skills have improved significantly through his use of professional emails.

He has received opportunities to give presentations about Humbly I Serve and to get the community on board.

 

Nonprofit Organizations:

Josiah mentions his nonprofit experience and says, “I learned how grassroots fundraising works on a day-to-day basis and the inner workings of a nonprofit. It is an eye opening experience working with an organization that relies on the Lord to provide for them. I had the opportunity to see the Lord provide in small ways in my projects. Each day we have two designated prayer times. I loved seeing how the Lord answered requests from day to day. Interning with Humbly I Serve taught me how to build good relationships with donors, staff and trip participants. I am so happy I had the chance to work so hard and gain valuable experience with a nonprofit.”

Interested in interning with us? We have positions available in an array of fields for Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters!

Beyond the Beauty

Beyond the Beauty

If you were to ask anyone who has traveled to St. Thomas about their experience, they would describe it as paradise.

Most families travel to the Virgin Islands to capture memories through photos and experiences. Many travel here for vacationing including activities such as scuba diving, sailing, parasailing, anybody’s idea of “getting away”.

But for locals, it is much, much, different.

Many of the people who live on the island are limited in what they are able to do. Many children result in hazardous activities such as gang violence and drug abuse.

The Virgin Islands have an exceptionally high rate of juvenile violent crime arrests.

This is where you come in. We need your help.

HIS Kids provides the children of VI with a positive environment away from daily distractions and pressures to creatively evaluate their relationships with Christ through various camp activities integrated with Biblical principles.
