Noel Lloyd with another Dominican Republic update.
Today was a good day in Santo Domingo.
We spent most of our time at the CURE Dominican Republic hospital.
Bryce Flurie filmed a surgery this morning. We also had an opportunity to interview with Executive Director Steve Bostian and orthopedic surgeon Scott Nelson. Dr. Nelson was in town for a few days and is headed back to Haiti tomorrow. So, I’m glad we caught him while he was in Santo Domingo.
The day also ended perfectly. I had a chance to see Oslin again.
Oslin was an earthquake victim from Haiti whom I met during my last visit to the CURE D.R. hospital in late January. You can read my post about him here.
Pastor Samuel Reyes graciously agreed to drive us there. And I’m so glad we took the time to go see him.
The sad kid I met that day in late January was completely different. He had a smile on his face.
We talked with him for a little bit and asked him how people could pray for him. He requested for others to pray for his continued healing.
I know he has many struggles ahead of him. It will not be easy to grow up as an amputee. But I have hope he can grow up and make as much as a difference in the lives of others as he has made in mine.
I ended my visit with him with a smile on my face and a prayer in my heart.
