Thank you for the Haitian Hospital Project
by Colleen Charsky
We received a thank you note from the American Baptist Churches of Metropolitan New York for our joining them and the Haitian Baptist Convention in the efforts to operate a hospital in northern Haiti. Below is an excerpt of that letter…
We recently received a check for $12,871.45 from the collective efforts of American Baptist Women’s Ministries throughout the state of New York, including those in our ABC Metro New York Region! Wow!
We are extremely grateful for your persistence in fulfilling this commitment to support the Haitian Hospital -which has been, as you know, a key mission project of ABC Metro New York.
Much work has already happened there and much work will continue there for those who are most vulnerable and often in deep need of medical services. Their wellbeing is more secure now through your efforts. Thank you so much! I hope to visit the Haitian Hospital in the 12 months to come and perhaps representative(s) from the ABWM can join me?
I am deeply grateful, not only for this gift in mission, but am encouraged by the way that women throughout the state have come together to support this need. Your successful ability to work together across what could be perceived as impermeable regional lines examples the best hope of cooperation and grace.
Your contribution helps us together practice justice and mercy and affirm our belief that quality health care is not restricted to the few but is a right for all. “Thank you” again for your faithfulness in stewardship that will make a difference in the lives of our sisters and brothers in Haiti.
Rev. Dr. Cheryl F. Dudley
