Area Missionaries Home on Furlough From Haiti

Dr. Jim and Sandy Wilkins.

A former Girard medical doctor and his wife shared some of their experiences as medical missionaries to Haiti on Dec. 18 at Girard’s Public Library.

Dr. Jim and Sandy Wilkins have served in Haiti since 1999 and currently have approximately 35,000 patients in the area they serve west of the capital city, Port Au Prince. They are home visiting family for two weeks.

Haiti Health Ministries is located in Gressier.

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and conditions have deteriorated even further since the assassination of the country’s president this year, Sandy said.

The current need is a maintenance person and other Christian mission-minded volunteers, Jim said.
