Nurses With Hope
She is not just a nurse, she is a role model of hope. Marie Chantal Phillipe came from a home that practiced Voodoo, and through her New Missions church and school in Lassale, she learned about Jesus. Today she leads the entire medical team of 34 nurses at New Missions in Haiti.
After graduating from high school, New Missions provided funding for Marie Chantal to attend medical school. She served as a nurse at our medical clinic, and then was promoted to medical clinic director.
When cholera reached the Leogane Plain and our school children were at risk, Marie Chantal led the efforts to secure an urgent response for each school. We did have students treated and released—thankfully without any deaths. God has used Marie Chantal and her team of nurses to spread hope through the healing power of Jesus.
At New Missions in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, medical care is part of our strategy for serving children and their families. The health center in the Dominican Republic has a medical staff of five—including two doctors and a physical therapist that serve the Sosua community with free medical care.
Please pray for our medical staff as they continue to bear witness of God’s hope to heal lives. We are believing in God’s healing power to remove the pain and suffering of the sick.
