Thank you to all of our HATS supporters, and to all my family and friends, for your support during the recent ordeal with my health. Your prayers and loving kindness sustained me through it all.

I am extremely thankful that I returned to Canada for medical help when I did.  I feel like God has given me a new lease on life and I will walk in daily thankfulness to Him.

I spent a total of two weeks in two different hospitals.  Angina was confirmed as my problem at the first hospital for which I received excellent medical help. I was transferred by air ambulance to another hospital.  There it was discovered I had a 90% blockage of a major artery to my heart. This was taken care of immediately and a stent was inserted into the artery to keep it open.


A little tied up.


On the move


Free at last!

I am presently in Springdale, Newfoundland, the wonderful town where I grew up. This is the best possible place for me for a couple weeks of recuperation and restoration. People from my home town stick together and really know how to welcome someone back home.  For example today they allowed their electricity to be off for approx 12 hours to make me feel very much at home.  It did just that.

After two weeks of R and R here I should be able to receive clearance to return to Haiti – to the work with children.  The children are asking daily for mama to ‘tounen’ (return).

While I am receiving needed medical care the work of HATS continues under the very capable leadership of HATS’ other director, Luckner.  He is handling his own work and my work at a crucial and very busy time for the HATS mission.  There is always a lot of extra work involved for both of us at the opening of school.

Speaking of school opening I will take this opportunity to let you know we have students who are in need of a sponsor.  Information is on our web site  Too, contact can be made with Liette Wilson at

Thank you so very much to people in both Haiti and in Canada from the bottom of my heart.

Please remember our work at the HATS-Haiti Mission is for, with, and about the needs of children.
