Haitian Orphans

Patrick is staying in the orphanage where he will be seeing more than 100 people in his "make shift" dental clinic. He said his first night at the orphanage was good, though both he and Tom Eifler did agree that the the same lizards were climbing on the walls where they were sleeping. They were, however, sleeping in totally different places. I guess the lizards are plentiful in Haiti!

The orphanage is a Christian orphanage in Haiti and Patrick said that he feels safe. He told me in a text that he is staying in an area with "really good people". He has a room where he is able to keep supplies locked up and the orphanage is gated and secure. Patrick started the morning at 6:00 a.m. and attended church at around 8:30 a.m. and Patrick and Tom Eifler were meeting with Mark Hogg and Bowin Tichenor from Edge Outreach this afternoon.

Patrick plans to begin seeing patients tomorrow. These are some photos (above) of some of the special needs patients he will be treating.
