[music] [music]>>Sherry Burnette: [speaking foreign language] [music]>>Bobby: Love is something that you do.>>female announcer: Nestledin the heartof the Caribbean, less thana 2-hour plane ride from Miami,Florida, lies our neighbor,the beautiful butimpoverished nation of Haiti.Pummeled by hurricanes,earthquakes, and decadesof economic failure, the peopleof this fair land strugglein conditions that make Haitithe poorest country inthe entire western hemisphere.Half the populationearns less than $1 a day.Many parents in Haiti havesuffered the excruciatingsorrow of burying one or moreof their precious children.Children needlessly die daily,only because they lack a simplemedicine like penicillin.In the midst of their pain,their grief, their hunger,and their sorrow, theirhearts yearn to find hope.Just the smallest glimmer ofhope that life could be better.And that’s where Bobbyand Sherry Burnette come in.>>Bobby Burnette: Bonjour.>>all: Bonjour.>>Bobby: Bonjour.>>all: Bonjour.>>Bobby: Bonjour.>>all: Bonjour. [speaking foreign language]>>Bobby: We’re here right now in a place called Peyi Pouri. It’s way up in the mountain. Actually, our Love a Child village headquarters is down below–way, way, way below. We’re on top of the mountain. A lot of the time, we’re higher than the clouds up here.>>Carlos Silvestre: We’re about 5,000 feet high. The roads are washed away. There’s areas we go is part of that 5 feet and a half wide, and it’s so dangerous we can’t get no large vehicle here.>>Bobby: We’re up here away from civilization as you know it. We’re up here where there’s no electricity, no cars, no store. Very, very, very little food. We feed these people when they come ’cause they’re hungry. Some walk many hours. One man walked with his baby 8 hours.>>Gabby Valladares: We’ve been here in the mountains in Peyi Pouri, setting up a clinic and giving people medicine and things that they need to stay healthy. And I’ve never done anything like this before, so I’m so happy to participate in something like this.>>Pastor Souffrans: [speaking in foreign language]>>Bobby: At daylight this morning, we seen ’em coming down the donkey trails, holding their babies, one after another. Even the Haitians here who were already here waiting before daylight, they looked up there and they told us, “Look! Look! It looks like the mountains are giving birth,” because so many people are coming down. Looked like the mountains was giving birth to the people. They were coming out of the mountain.>>Kaeli Fletcher: People running down from the mountains, seeing that we’re having a clinic, just goes to show how much help they need.>>Bobby: Some of these people got here 3 days ago and some still will not see the doctor or our volunteer team today. Some still have to wait ’til tomorrow. They come from such a long ways. Because we pray for them, many we won to the Lord early this morning in our Bible study. We won many people to Christ this morning. But you know, we come here, you and I together, you help make this possible, we’re the hands and feet of Christ, the compassion of Christ. May God bless you. You’ll see our volunteer team today. You’ll see Sherry and all the others. Because love is something you do, and you are part of this too. You’re part of this. Without you and your prayers, we can’t do–we can’t share the love of Christ. Thank you and God bless you. Because love is something that you do.>>Sherry: Dr. Lena, she came through the clinic. She looks like she’s got scabies, but she looks like she’s got a skin infection and her neck is all nasty. So, what would you–I know we don’t see a lot of this in the States, but what would you think it would be?>>Lena Gamble: It looks more like a superinfection. There’s scabies starting off, perhaps, and then maybe a little impetigo on top of it, perhaps.>>Sherry: Let me show you something here. See how dirty her fingernails are? If she starts scratching it, what happens is that dirt goes right down underneath, and then infections spread.>>Lena: Exactly. Hopefully she should be better soon.>>Sherry: She will be. Thank you. Thank you. Stick her in the tub. All right. [speaking in foreign language] She is so excited that she’s gonna get a bath. Okay, here we go, buddy. All right, all right. I’m sorry, sweetie. Just a second, okay? It’ll just be a few minutes. So, we’ve got some Betadine in the water. She’s got some major sores. I may have to get somebody to hold her in just a second, but I think I can do it. All right, honey. This’ll just take a few minutes. All right, I know. I know it. I know it. I know it.>>[baby crying]>>Sherry: Okay. All right. You’re almost reaching your mom. Just a second. Yes. Yes. Yes. [speaking in foreign language] All right, that was tough wasn’t it? All right, let’s get you all dried off. Yes, it’s gonna be okay. Yes. All right, let’s put this on. Yeah, all right. Yeah. She’s got one right there popping up. Yeah. Well, right now we just got through washing the baby, and she’s got a lot of sores that’s gonna get infected. And been giving her mom some antibiotics and medicine for her, gave her a bath, and now we’re fixing to give her mom some medicine for the fungus infection that her little boy has. But she’s really happy, she’s thankful she came to the clinic, she’s got medicines for her whole family. And she’s going home rejoicing because, if not for this clinic, where would she go? God bless you and thank you so much–okay.>>announcer: For over 20 yearsBobby and Sherry Burnettehave dedicated their livesas full-time missionariesto the people of Haiti.They bring the good newsof Jesus Christ.They also bring healing.They bring care.They bring love andthey bring hope, especially tothe children, the children whowill be the Haiti of tomorrow.Today, you’re watchinga Love A ChildMobile Medical Clinic.The children and their parentsare so desperate.The need is so urgent.And that’s where you come in.Your gift today of just $20provides an emergencyfamily pack of medicineto a desperate Haitian family.This family pack contains basicmedications that you would findin every American home.You can give the gift of lifeand health and hope toa Haitian family for just $20.Please call or go toour website right now.Your sacrificial gift of $50helps us treat 50 childrenat one of these clinics.Fifty childrenwith curable diseasescan be healed and made well.Please call and give $50right now.Will you help a sick child,a complete stranger,to get nursed back to health?A gift of $100helps treat 100 childrenat one of these clinics.One hundred lives changedand impacted for the kingdomfor just $100.Whatever yourfinancial resources,please give something.Operators are on duty to answeryour call right now or go toour website, LOVEACHILD.COM.You can see with your eyesthat the need is urgent.$20 will provide an emergencyfamily pack of medicines;$50 will help treat50 children at a Love A ChildMobile Medical Clinic; $100will help treat 100 children.Pray right now and ask God whathe would have you to do becauselove is something you do.Do something in love right now.Call, go to our website,or write to the addresson the screen.What will you do to help today?>>Sherry: [speaking foreign language] This is Eastman. She’s about 10 years old and she’s from a village very, very, very far away from here. We were getting ready to close the clinic and her mom came and brought her in. I didn’t know that and I said, “Well, we’re closing the clinic for today,” and the pastor came and said, “She won’t be able to come back.” The back of her hair looks okay, but as you can see, she’s got a really bad infection on the top of her head. And I have to cut all her hair off in order to scrub this really, really nasty, nasty mess and try to get her all cleaned up. There’s a Creole proverb that says, “The child that cries outside the door and the child that cries inside the door, they’re the same.” It means whether it’s your child or somebody else’s child, and they’re crying, and they’re hurting, and they have a need, it’s all the same. There’s no difference. So right now, we’re treating this little child just like we would try to treat your child and do everything we could for your child. And so while you’re watching this program, I just pray that your heart will be touched and that you can see with your eyes, you can see your neighbor in this little girl, you can see your grandchild, you can see your daughter, or your niece when you look at this little girl, and that you’ll help us help little children just like Eastman. Thank you. Okay baby, that’s the bad stuff. Okay? Let me just rinse that off.>>Sherry: We have two people who were too sick and couldn’t make it to the clinic, so we had to send a doctor down to them. And it was a Haitian doctor. One person, he said, was so, so, so–the most anemic person he’d ever seen in his life. So, they’ve got a lot of medication. And then another person is–they can’t walk and they’re crippled, so they’ll have to go to a local hospital. But they’re both really bad, so we’re gonna go down, give ’em their medication, and explain everything to ’em. [speaking in foreign language] All the way over there? Wow. Oh, that’s a ways, a long ways. It is so far. I’ve got people backed up in wound care. I can’t walk over the mountain range to go see these people right now. I’m gonna have to try to do it a little bit later. I think I will send the doctor in a little while so he can go back and explain the medicine to ’em. I think I will do that.>>male: [speaking foreign language]>>male: That is a medication that we’ll bring for us. Just take this medicines we bring for you, and then when those medicines done, and then we don’t know which way you can use to go to Love A Child, but those medicines can be good for you. Those medicines that you will take can make you feel better. [speaking in foreign language] We give a lot of medicine that can help you like that.>>female: [speaking in foreign language]>>male: I would like to standing right now and walk by myself, but I can’t do it right now, but I know God is a provider. God can do that for me.>>male: He said, “When I look at her eyes, I see that very, very white.”>>male: [speaking in foreign language]>>male: She has bad anemia on her. She can’t have stand. She doesn’t have any power to standing. A lot of medication for you to help you with your sickness, to help you become better.>>male: [speaking in foreign language]>>announcer: For over 20 yearsBobby and Sherry Burnettehave dedicated their livesas full-time missionariesto the people of Haiti.They bring the good newsof Jesus Christ.They also bring healing.They bring care.They bring love andthey bring hope, especially tothe children, the children whowill be the Haiti of tomorrow.Today, you’re watchinga Love A ChildMobile Medical Clinic.The children and their parentsare so desperate.The need is so urgent.And that’s where you come in.Your gift today of just $20provides an emergencyfamily pack of medicineto a desperate Haitian family.This family pack contains basicmedications that you would findin every American home.You can give the gift of lifeand health and hope toa Haitian family for just $20.Please call or go toour website right now.Your sacrificial gift of $50helps us treat 50 childrenat one of these clinics.Fifty childrenwith curable diseasescan be healed and made well.Please call and give $50right now.Will you help a sick child,a complete stranger,to get nursed back to health?A gift of $100helps treat 100 childrenat one of these clinics.One hundred lives changedand impacted for the kingdomfor just $100.Whatever yourfinancial resources,please give something.Operators are on duty to answeryour call right now or go toour website, LOVEACHILD.COM.You can see with your eyesthat the need is urgent.$20 will provide an emergencyfamily pack of medicines;$50 will help treat50 children at a Love A ChildMobile Medical Clinic; $100will help treat 100 children.Pray right now and ask God whathe would have you to do becauselove is something you do.Do something in love right now.Call, go to our website,or write to the addresson the screen.What will you do to help today?>>Bobby: May God bless you. I want to give you a word from the mission field today. You know, Matthew, the 25th chapter, verse 40, Jesus said, “Nevertheless, when you have done it to one of the least of these little ones, ye have done it unto me.” That powerful Scripture, Jesus said, “But nevertheless, when you have done it unto one of the lease of these, my brother, ye have done it unto me.” I wanna explain something to you. All these people, hundreds of people, they have been here for hours. Some have been here since yesterday. Some has been here since the day before. Some has came 8, 9, 10 hours a day walking, little babies in their arms, walking with children. So today, all these we’re helping and you’re helping with us, we’re partnering together. We’re doing this unto Jesus himself. What’s happened, let me explain to you. All these people scoot to the right inch by inch, 1 inch at a time, all day long. Look, see. Lookit here. Look how this. Some, I’m serious, has been here since–this is the 3rd day, moving up inch by inch to get to see the doctors, and the nurses, and the tables out there. But Jesus said, “When you have done it to one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” It’s beyond my human conception how these Haitians sit here with such patience. And we feed ’em during the day, too. We feed ’em a hot meal. How they do it? But they need medical care, and they need Jesus, and they need our love, and they need God’s love. God bless you for caring. We love you.>>male: [speaking in foreign language]>>Sherry: [speaking in foreign language] Yeah, he’s gonna have to open up her bottom lip and let all the infection drain out. This is Mikelange. She’s 12 years old, so her mother came to the clinic today. Her lip is so infected, it looks like it’s got cancer or some kind of large infection. But when the Haitian doctor looked at it, he discovered that she had been having seizures, and when she had seizures, she had bitten her lip so much that she just gnawed it and just gnawed her lips. So as a result, her lips had gotten infected. And then yesterday, when she tried to wash it, there’s been more infection inside. It’s all right here. The doctor is gonna give her some Lidocaine, but they’ve got to make an incision, and go into that lip, and they’ve got to take all that infection out or, you know, it’ll become very, very serious. So, we are in such a rustic environment. We’re not in a hospital. This should be done in a hospital. We’re not in a hospital. We’re not in a clinic in the United States. We’re in the mountains of Haiti in the middle of nowhere, and we do the best that we can.>>male: [speaking in foreign language]>>Sherry: They’re getting ready to–they put some anesthetic on her lip and cleaning it with Betadine. They’re getting ready to give her some Lidocaine, you know, to help her with the pain and everything. So, I know it’s really tender. This poor girl. She’s probably about 12. Her mom doesn’t really even know how old she is.>>male: [speaking in foreign language]>>Sherry: She’s afraid of shots. He’s saying, “One little shot.”>>male: Okay, okay, okay.>>Mikelange: [crying]>>Sherry: Okay baby. Okay baby. Okay baby. Okay baby. Okay baby. Okay baby.>>male: [speaking in foreign language]>>Sherry: Taking the top layer of the skin off that’s infected so that the lip can heal. Doing a very good job out here in the middle of nowhere.>>male: [speaking in foreign language]>>Sherry: [speaking in foreign language] Just about finished with her right now. So, they’ve taken off a layer of skin, top layer of skin, which is really infected.>>Mikelange: [crying]>>male: [speaking in foreign language]>>Sherry: They’re giving her some more Lidocaine, so I’m not sure if they have to lance it or anything right now. But they were really cleaning the whole lip. That was very, very painful. Okay baby. Okay baby. Okay, okay, okay. The doctor’s saying that it’d’ve been very, very bad if this hadn’t been cleaned. Very bad. And what they did they had to do. And every time we do a mobile clinic in Haiti, we always employ Haitian doctors because they know a lot of the skin diseases and sicknesses, and what to do when there is no help at all. They know what to do and they’re not afraid to do it. Okay. [speaking in foreign language] Wow. Doctors are gonna go by and give her the prescription for her antibiotics and things that her mom’s gonna take home. So, we have a lot more kids waiting for wound care, but from time to time, we get a rough case like that, you know? So, we’re just really glad to have the American doctors with us and the Haitian doctors. They all work together and give all the glory to God. Wow. This was a tough one.>>Sherry: You know, I am not a nurse. People think I’m a nurse because I work in mobile clinics, but it’s just something that God has put in my heart, and I love to be there, and I love to help and do whatever I can. You know, we’re all about children. Love A Child is mainly about children. You know, today in our mobile clinic, we just had such a pathetic little girl. Her lip is all swollen. It was just–it looked awful. I thought it was cancer, and the father came to us and the doctor said, “No, she’s got so much infection in her lip– in her lips that it has to be completely stripped off the top layer, cleaned with Betadine,” and it was a big thing. I had to stand there and hold her head–and hold her head while she screamed and cried in my arms. You know, that was a tough thing that I had to do. And we’re here, we’re doing hands on, and all we’re asking you to do is to help us be here to be those people to put those hands on those little children and help them. First of all, any amount whatsoever will help us to help these poor people in the mountains with medical care. Any amount. If you have $20, this is such a wonderful medical family emergency pack. We’re gonna be giving these out on the very, very last day when we have to leave to all the people who could not come to the mobile clinic. They have basic medicines in, they have cough medicine for children and adults, they have fever medicine, they have medicine for worms, they have bandages. These Haitian people right here, they could never, ever afford not even one bottle of medicine. All the Haitians tell us that, so this is such a blessing, and they won’t go home empty handed. You can sponsor 50 little children to come to this medical clinic with a gift of $50. Isn’t that wonderful? Fifty children get to come for fifty dollars. And 100 children can be sponsored to come to a mobile clinic for a gift of $100. But please, pray about being the good Samaritan with a gift of whatever God lays upon your heart.>>Bobby: You can sponsor a clinic just like this for $1,000, a mobile clinic out in the interior somewhere. All these people, for $1,000, you can sponsor a clinic. Or for $10,000 you can sponsor the whole entire container of medicines that’s been donated that we can get it to us. That container would be worth at least $1 million. So, that’s how we can do it. But $10,000 will get the medicine shipped to us. Please call the toll-free number on the screen or give by computer online. Every–any amount, the widow’s mite, it does not matter. Save lives or write the mailing address. God bless you. Let God use you.>>Sherry: Love is something that you do; it’s something that we do together. [music]>>Sherry: [speaking in foreign language] [music]>>Bobby: Love is something that you do.
