A Note from Dr. Guy Theodore, founder and director of the mission:
Dear supporters of the Hospital in Pignon and to our Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
The Lord has spared us from death during the earthquake in Haiti so He can continue to use us to relieve the suffering and bring health, compassion and the love of Christ to those affected, amputated and suffering of dislocation and relocation as a consequence of the earthquake. We are grateful of your continued support allowing us to be of service to the victims of the earthquake and now, victims of cholera, knowing that whatever we do for the least of them, it is done to Christ the Lord. I continue and will always stick to the promise made when I was 11 years old: our organization, Christian Mission of Pignon/ Promise for Haiti, is an open window for God to work through our health, education, water, sanitation, agriculture, and animal husbandry efforts. Help us pray that this mission, CMP/ PFH, continues to be only guided by the Lord our Savior, for the salvation of mankind and humanity .
