Be The Bridge Campaign
Bless Home Base
The MIVO Foundation Clinic Campaign
As fall closes out and winter sets in, we look back on the events of 2019 in gratitude to God and countless supporters of The MIVO Foundation. Two, very blessed mission trips were made to the orthopedic clinic in L'Estere, Haiti this year, in spite of the crises our beloved Haiti and its people face as a country in turmoil. The foundation commits to continued perseverance as the clinic remains in operation five days per week, even in our American medical teams' abscence.
As we navigate recent challenges in regards to safe travel for our medical teams, MIVO continues to strengthen our support to the ongoing work being done on site at the MIVO Orthopedique Centre. Our Haitian staff, numbering ____ total, including 5 nurses with a total of ____ years experience at the clinic.
We begin "Bless Home Base" in hopes of raising funds, awareness, and prayer support. Below are a few examples of our initiatives in this campaign:
B - Believe In. Through frequent correspondence between Dr. Etienne and others, MIVO continues to stand behind the services being provided to orthopedic patients in need at the clinic. Gracia serves as a daily resource to the staff. We believe in what God has done and continues to do within the walls of our clinic and through our Haitian staff. In America, we continue to broaden the numbers of those who believe along with us.
L - Love. This is shown in innumerable ways. We strive to love in thought, word and deed. We love as Christ first loved us through ongoing care provision first to those who are on staff so that they can then pass the love and care of Jesus Christ onto the patients and families. Creole bibles are on hand to pass out and prayers are encouraged as part of each work day. Clinic days begin with song and prayer just as when medical teams are at the clinic.
E - Edify. How can we uplift those who work so hard, day in day out in between the American medical missions? May the Haitian staff feel valued despite difficulties. Through this campaign, we are raising awareness of the importance of their roles in fulfilling the mission of MIVO. Their profiles will be placed on MIVO's website as we showcase them as a critical component of our servant team. New ways are being explored to educate our American friends and family about our Haitian MIVO family.
S - Supply. MIVO is researching new ways to have needed supplies and medications on hand for use at our clinic. Recently, we shipped a small container of essential medications, casting materials, and a few other "goodies" to Haiti. We are also in the process of researching available meds & materials to barter for or to purchase in-country.
S - Sustain. The main component behind this campaign is sustainability. Despite adversities in our world, MIVO believes God will help us to maintain the care we provide at the clinic. In spite of hardship, we will encounter heavenly blessings. Each of us can participate in small and large ways. Our gifts and our specific instructions vary with individuals. We, at MIVO, partner with each of you, in prayer. Be it through financial donation on a web site or personal check, in intercessory prayer for the clinic and the people of Haiti, or in ways yet to be discovered, we thank you.
