Saving Jean Robert’s Village – 1/8/16


>>Sherry Burnette: This baby right here is 2 years old. She’s severely malnourished.>>Sherry: The little boy that you see with malnutrition right here, he’s 7 years old. I told her three times, if she doesn’t go today, she’ll die. [music] [music] >>Sherry: We are in Lastik, this is Lastik. I know that you guys probably have seen it sometime before. But anyway, we had a young boy that was from Lastik, his name is Jean-Robert, and it’s a boy that Barbara knows very well, and he’s from Lastik. And Barbara did the best, you know, to take care of him at the Jesus Healing Center. We gave him a lot of care, really thought that he would live, but he did die. And so, this clinic, today, is in his memory, in the memory of Jean-Robert, and we thought he could make it, but God took him. But, we did the best we could, that’s all we do is to the best we can. So today, when we’re treating those people, you know, as Mother Theresa said, “You treat each patient as if it was Jesus.” And so, we give them the very best of care. And so, today I see they’ve already started coming, so we’re gonna get to work, unpack, get everything set up, get your personal things set in your tent, and then we’ll start sending up the providers, and then we’ll meet again. So, we’re doin’ this today in the memory of Jean-Robert, and we hope and pray that some people get saved, that people get healed, that people get helped, and we can do a lot for these people, poor people here in Lastik, okay, amen. Let’s just say a little word of prayer while we’re here. Father, we just come to you, Lord, in the name of Jesus, and we thank you, God, for a save trip. Lord, we know Bobby is on the way, he’s coming late, God, with one of the team members, but Lord, you gave us a safe trip, God. You even got us here with a flat tire, and we didn’t have far to walk. God, we hold this clinic today, Lord, first of all in your honor, and also Lord, in the honor of little Jean-Robert who is from this village. And Lord, bless our partners who helped us today. Bless these people, Father. Give us wisdom, Lord, and let us treat each patient as if it was you, Jesus. We thank you, Lord, for everything. In Jesus’ name, amen. [music] >>Kaeli Fletcher: You know, doing these clinics, we always find people who are suffering, and unfortunately, we didn’t find Jean-Robert soon enough. We were able to touch him in the ways that we did, but now his story is out there, and it’s opening doors for other people to be helped.>>Jean-Robert: [speaking foreign language]>>Cristela Renelus: [speaking foreign language]>>Jean-Robert: [speaking foreign language] [music] >>male announcer: There are multitudes of malnourished and starving children who live in Haiti, babies and children who, if not helped, will join the hundreds who are dying daily. Lack of food, clean water, sanitary conditions, and medical care mean children under the age of 5 are at the highest risk.

Love A Child clinics provide assistance to these impoverished people who have never seen a doctor or received medical care. We need your help, now. Fifty dollars sponsors fifty children to visit the medical clinic. One hundred dollars sponsors one hundred children. Twenty dollars provides a family a complete package of medicine, and one thousand dollars provides a clinic for an entire village. Will you hear the cry of the poor now, and allow your heart to be touched?

Please call the number on your screen, now, or write today and say, “I want to help the hurting children of Haiti.”>>Bobby Burnette: Oh, hello. Oh, madam Christela. I said, “I know her.” [foreign language] Mrs. Sherry, hey Sherry, Jean-Robert mama’s here.>>Sherry: I know.>>Bobby: And, you know, we dedicate this clinic, this week, to his honor.>>Sherry: You can just see the pain in her face.>>Bobby: Her pain’s in her face, I know it.>>Sherry: [foreign language] >>Christela: [foreign language]>>Sherry: She had six, now she has five.>>Bobby: I know, I remember, Sherry, she sold everything she had to try to buy anything he needed for his health. And she sold the bed, she sold a chair, she sold everything for money.>>Sherry: Everything.>>Bobby: To try to help little Jean-Robert, and they loved him so much.>>Sherry: Now, this little girl, do you see that she’s got malnutrition?>>Bobby: She’s got malnutrition.>>Sherry: Yes.>>Bobby: Oh, so bad. Now, I’m a Christian, and I can see the importance of medical care out here in the middle of nowhere, how important this mobile clinic is. It’s life and death for some people.>>Sherry: Wow. Very great, madam. There’s five kids to take care of in the middle of nowhere, with no husband. I can’t believe it.>>Sherry: [foreign language]. Let me go make sure she’s got some perfect–okay [foreign language] [music] >>Sherry: [foreign language] Yes, you are! Yes! One little smile.>>Bobby: Sherry and I want to give you a special gift, our new-release book, “Love is Something You Do.” This book is full of stories of children here in Haiti, stories of faith, stories of adventure, and even back from our life beginning when Sherry and I was born, up to present day. And, of course, the first chapter is called, “The Rat Shack.” I fasted and prayed 21 days just on water, but, about the 13th day, I looked up at 1 o’clock in the morning, and I seen a vision. What did I see? You must request the book.>>announcer: For your free copy of Bobby and Sherry Burnette’s new book, “Love is Something You Do,” simply give your gift of any amount, and request the book.

[music] >>Debbie Click: My name is Debbie Click, and I’m from the Houston, Texas area. My husband and I have supported Love A Child for some years, and boy, one reason that’s very simple. When we are born into this life, we are born into a family with a mom, and dad, and brothers, and sisters, and cousins, and aunts. But, when we’re born into the family of God, we’re born into our forever family, and we have new brothers, and new sisters, and new aunts, and uncles, and grandma and grandpas. And we support Love A Child because they understand that all of the family of God our are family. Here in the country of Haiti, it can be overwhelming because we think maybe we don’t have enough to help, or enough to make a difference, but the little bit that everybody does makes a difference to one person. And perhaps we can’t take care of a whole village, but we can provide food for one family for the month, or we can help to sponsor a clinic, or we can give some of our time to help those. So, it doesn’t have to be a lot, it just has to be from our heart for love for the people.>>Sherry: [foreign language]. He’s 2 years old? [speaking foreign language] Come here, baby. He’s 2 years old, oh my God. Oh, he’s skin and bones. [speaking foreign language] This baby right here, he’s 2 years old. He’s severely malnourished, severely malnourished. He is from the mountains, too, here where we’re doing the clinic. And he has come today with severe malnutrition. So, we’re gonna make sure that he gets put in our Love A Child malnutrition program, so he can grow. And without this, he would die. You know, Jean-Robert, the little boy that we tried to help, we came too late for Jean-Robert, and he died. But, there is hope for this little boy, because his mom brought him to the clinic here today. We’re gonna give our best shot to save his life, and we believe that we can, because we came here in time.>>Debbie Chen: I’m Dr. Debbie, and I’m from New Jersey, and I’ve come to the Love A Child mobile clinics. This is my fifth one, because I really just support what Love A Child does, everything they do. We can give them some relief and some short-term care here, but Love A Child takes care of everything. But then, too, also, even if we just give them a little bit of care, and a little bit of love, I just, you know, we pray that this–that they will know God’s love from this, and that this is all from Jesus and from God, it’s not from us.>>Bobby: Well, may God bless you. I’d like to give you a word from here in Lastik, Haiti, deep in the interior of Haiti. And you know, we’re in the mobile clinic, and when they all come, they dress in their Sunday clothes. They’ve done this for years in Haiti, they just dress in the very best they have. They come here, but I just wanna give you a word before I explain what we’re doing here. This is the last part of our mobile clinic that comes to where we pray for them, and lead some to Christ, and pray for people, give away little gifts. But, you know, the Bible says, Jesus said, “When ye have done it to the one of the least of these little ones, ye have done it unto me.” So, here we are, you and I together, you’re praying, you’ve been helping finance with our medical mobile clinics, we’re partnering together, and we’re actually–you think we’re doin’ this to the children and the people of Haiti, we are, but we’re actually doin’ it unto Jesus himself. That’s powerful. Matthew 25 is a word for today. Let me explain it to you. This is the last part everybody comes to. I’ve got Joseph over here who prays, and I pray, and this is the family. Sherry just put ’em in our malnutrition program down there in our Love A Child compound. He’s malnourished, so he’ll be part of that program. And also, this family here, this is the bag of medicine they get. This is so heavy, it’s very hard to lift. It must weigh 15-20 pounds. And inside, there’s cold medicine, cough medicine, diarrhea medicine, vitamins, warm medicine, and it also has this bag of rice and a special milk for the babies. And also, we give them a Joyce Meyer, a little book. Joyce Meyer sent these down for us to give away in our clinics. They love these books. They’re inspirational, they’re a blessing. Thank you, Joyce Meyer. We have–nuts that we give away to everyone of our clinics, and then we give away baby dolls, we give away sandals. It’s just a blessing, because love is something that you do. And by the way, for those of you who’ve given offering to help feed the children, and help in the medical clinic, help here in Haiti in any way, we want to give you a gift of our newest book, “Love is Something You Do.” And believe me, people cannot set it down. They love reading that book. But, God bless you from a word from the mission field, here in Haiti today. God bless you.>>male announcer: There are multitudes of malnourished and starving children who live in Haiti, babies and children who, if not helped, will join the hundreds who are dying daily.

I’m the children’s pastor, and I was invited to this place, Love A Child, here in Lastik for the very first time, actually, by a friend. And though I’ve done missions around the world, I am just overwhelmed at how amazing this whole organization operates. Here, in this clinic, you don’t have to be a professional, because I am certainly not a professional, but there are so many things you can volunteer to do. There’s so many people doing things, and just working in the pharmacy, and just helping. Just picking up trash, anything that there is to do to glorify God’s kingdom, that’s what we wanna do, because after all, that’s what it’s all about, right, is glorifying his name, and doing all things with excellence in everything we do.>>Barbara MacMannis: Hi, I’m Barbara MacMannis. I’m the medical administrator at Love A Child Jesus Healing Center. It’s just such an important thing for us to come into the outer areas of Haiti, because the people just have no way to get down, or it’s so difficult for them to get down. We’re not always able to help everyone, but there’s one thing that we know we can do is, we can share the gospel of Jesus Christ with them. They go from our clinic to the pharmacy area, and then from there, they go to an area where we do evangelism and tell them about the gospel of Christ, tell them about Jesus, and how he loves them, and how we love them, and that’s how we show the love of Christ, is through this mobile clinic, and that’s what leads them to Jesus. And that gives them the hope that they need, that’s really all that we have, is we have hope in Christ. [music] >>Sherry: Yeah, he understands. See, I told him three times if she doesn’t go today, she’ll die, and I said if she doesn’t die, she’ll have a stroke. [speaking foreign language] So Pat, explain to us again, what’s the matter with the mom, and why we have to send her to the emergency hospital?>>Pat Webster: So, she’s just had a baby, and now her blood pressure is, it’s 246/145.>>Sherry: 246/145.>>Pat: And her symptoms, she’s dizzy, she has a headache.>>Sherry: She has dizzy headache, everything.>>Pat: And, she’s to the point where she could easily have a stroke, or a heart attack, or a seizure, and not survive this.>>Sherry: So, a stroke, heart attack, seizure, not survive. And how many children, again? One, two, three, four. [speaking foreign language] So, now our clinic is closed today in–because of a holiday. So Barbara, we gotta send her to the 24-hour care, right? –which is right near our clinic. So, you go ahead and take care of her, I’m gonna go get some money to send her to down to the clinic. [speaking foreign language] Alright, this is what happens here in the clinic, and a lot of times, it’s too late. But just think, we came here just in time, we believe, to save this mom. She lives way up in the mountains. She would have either had a stroke, or she would have died, and she’s got five kids. She just had a new baby, she just had a new baby a month ago, and the father’s here. Just imagine if she had not come. I had a pastor who had a church group with me, one time. He made me so angry. He had a wonderful church group, the church group had removed a tumor from a baby’s chest, they pulled teeth, the did so many things, and they helped a whole village, and the pastor went by, and as he saw someone, his own church member, operating, removing a tumor of a baby, he said, “This is just like putting a Band-Aid on a cancer.” I tell you, I was so mad at that pastor. That baby would have died if we would not have been there, and you can’t tell that mom that that was just like putting a Band-Aid on a cancer. If you can save one life in a mobile clinic, it’s worth it all. Because some children are gonna lose their mother, or their father, or a mother or father is gonna lose their child. So today, it was important that this mom be here today so we can send her out to get that care that she needs to save her life. Thank you for helping us.>>male announcer: Will you hear the cry of the poor now, and allow your heart to be touched? Fifty dollars sponsors fifty children to visit the clinic.

Please call the number on your screen, now, or writ today and say, “I want to help the hurting children of Haiti.” [music] >>Barbara: Wow, what a nice place. I mean, this is just gorgeous.>>Kaeli: This is beautiful, and it’s so nice out here. And after seeing his relationship with his mom, I would wanna go home, too, you know. And, you know, remember when he went to church and wanted to sing, and sing? He wanted to come back home so he could sing in the church choir, and–oh, it just brings me joy to know that he’s no longer suffering, and he is now happy, and no more pain. He can walk without that painful limp that he had. It makes me so happy knowing that he’s in a better place.>>Sherry: This is Jean-Wilson. He’s 7 years old. He looks like he’s maybe 3. He’s got marasmus, malnutrition. He’s got the barrel-shaped chest. He’s got little, tiny, skinny arms. This little baby is 7, this little baby is 7 years old, 7 years old, look at him. Look at his little, sad face, his little, tiny arms. There’s no weight on his body. There’s three children under him. His father is a poor farmer and his father says, “What can I do? My gardens don’t grow. I can’t grow anything. I don’t have any crops to feed my family.”>>male: [foreign language] >>Sherry: The little boy that you see with malnutrition right here, he’s 7 years old. Imagine that. But, we’re get him in a malnutrition clinic program. We’re gonna take good care of him. But, we’ve been saving–we’ve saved these back before we came, and this is what we call our emergency family pack. That means, if we’re closing the clinic, or running real low, we don’t have anything at all to give ’em, and we’re closing the clinic, and we still got moms, we can take those mothers inside the church, and every mother will get a family pack, like this, of medicine. It’s got all kinds of medicines. It’s got iron medicine, B-complex, Visine for your eyes, it’s got Band-Aids, and gloves, rubber gloves and medicine for babies. Its got cough and cold medicine for adults and children, pain medicine for adults and children, vitamins, and just much more, scabies medicine. And so, every one of these family packs is something that these mothers would love to take back home, and go to the mountains, and you can sponsor one of these for just $20. Imagine, a mom going way back in the mountains, and having this medicine to take back to her family.>>Bobby: Oh, I know, Sherry. This family pack, they could never, never…>>Sherry: Never afford it, never.>>Bobby: But, for $20, you can be able to sponsor 1 family pack, or 5 family packs, or more. But, it would bless a family so much who has no medical help whatsoever. Then, of course, please pray about this. Fifty dollars will sponsor fifty children, fifty people, fifty children that come to the clinic, a dollar a child for all of this. One hundred dollars would sponsor one hundred children to come to the clinic, a hundred people, to come, and for a dollar a person, they’ll receive all of this. And, of course, those that God has blessed, we’re asking you to help sponsor. This is a third-worldly clinic here, a mobile, this is the last day. Oh my, people come early in the mornings, at daylight. But, for $1,000, we can sponsor an entire mobile medical clinic, for $1,000, and help, literally, save lives. The number is on your screen. Call right now. It’s toll free, it won’t cost you anything. Call and give on your credit card. It’ll make it so much easier, make it easy, just give online, on your computer. The ease of givin’ online. How much do you want to give? Or you may say, “Well, Bobby and Sherry, I want to make a automatic, monthly deductible. We can set that up for you, whatever God puts on your heart. Or, you may write a letter and put a check in the mail. Now, for everyone who writes, and gives to help on one of these amounts for the mobile medical clinic, Sherry and I will send you a gift. A gift of our newly-released book that’s out now, called “Love is Something You Do.” So, give to this, meet one of the needs, let God use you, and we’d like to give you a book that’s gonna bless you back. Please, call today, write today, or give online, and we’ll send you back a thank-you letter, thanking you, with a picture inside. God bless you. Love is something that you do.>>Kaeli: I don’t think my work was left unfinished. I feel like, during the last weeks that we cared for him, and gave him the love that he needed was one step closer for him finding the Jesus that he needed. He needed that extra love, and that extra comfort to go home. That’s–I think that’s why God brought him to Love A Child. It’s definitely touching, you know. When he was alive, we visited his home, and his family, I met his mother, and seeing where he came from, and what his life was all about, it just–it does bring that closure. And his mom is just such a wonderful lady, and did so much for him, and he loved her so much. And just talking with her, and seeing how much she loves Love A Child, and is so grateful for the work that we put in to Jean-Robert, it’s really amazing. It’s so sad that he is gone, but to know that he’s just rejoicing right now, oh, it just makes things so much better. It makes things so much better. [music] CC by Aberdeen Captioning
