The Forgotten People – 3/3/17


>>Debbie Click: This is what never gets old to me. This is what tugs at my heart. These people are what keeps me awake at night.>>Sherry Burnette: We go far into the mountains, many areas of Haiti, and we take the mobile clinics to the people who are in the very worst places.>>Debbie: And if someone such as Love A Child does not come and serve them, these are the people who are forgotten. These are the people, to me, who the Bible declares sit in great darkness.>>Sherry: We cross rivers, we climb mountains, we ride mules, we walk on foot. We do anything we can to take mobile clinics and the healing power that we have that God has given us to the poorest of the poor. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Debbie: Loving, kind, precious people. Let’s do everything we can to bring the light of Jesus Christ to people as this village. [music]>>Sherry: God bless you, and welcome to the program today. I’m Sherry Burnette. This is my daughter Julie, and we are here in Haiti in the village of old Le Tant, where we’ve been working for many, many years. And Bobby is not here today. He could not be with us today, but we have a wonderful team that has come to be with us today. This is a quickly set-up mobile clinic.>>Julie Burnette Halecki: We’ll call this a rapid mobile clinic.>>Sherry: This is a rapid mobile clinic. These people need help because they never want to leave their village. You know, Julie, I’ve been here. I’ve seen kids with burns in their arms, broken arms, a broken leg, and they just don’t think to leave the village to come to our clinic for help.>>Julie: Mom, every single time we come here, somebody walks up to us and shows us something wrong with them. There’s a baby with a fever that’s almost dying. There’s somebody that’s got a huge sore on their arm that’s severely infected.>>Sherry: So today with your help, we’re gonna provide a nice mobile clinic for these people. And, ezkize, whoops! They’re settin’ up a tent right beside us!>>Julie: Gotta move quick around here!>>Sherry: But with your help, we’re gonna bring wonderful help to these people who really– a lot of them are voodoo people. A lot of ’em are Christians. But whether or not they’re Christians or voodoo people, they still need God’s love. And, you know, Jesus said that “You should love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your soul, and love your neighbor as yourself.” These people are our neighbors.>>Julie: Yes, they are!>>Sherry: And they’re your neighbors too. And today, because of you, we’re here in this mud-hut village, gonna do the best we can and give them the best care. Thank you for sending us here. God bless you. We’re Sherry and Julie Burnette.>>Sherry: So, Julie, what we’re gonna do is set up wound care right here, under this hut.>>Julie: I’d like to set up glasses here.>>Sherry: Okay. Providers there.>>Julie: We’re missing a provider, but that’s okay. We’re gonna do the best we can. Pharmacy will be over here.>>Sherry: All right. [music]>>Brandon Hoyme: Hi, guys. My name is Brandon, and this is our third day in our clinic here in Haiti. Today we’re in a village called Le Tant. Sherry, she’s such an incredible individual. She does so much for Haiti, and she does so much for Love A Child. I can’t imagine all the work and hard effort she puts in just for the teams, waiting for them to come while she’s planning. And they have everything so well taken care of when a team comes in. We get to stay at the Love A Child village. And I know that she truly loves the people here. When she asks on TV for donations or any kind of love gift or anything like that, a lot of people wonder what their money is actually going to, but everything here, as you can see, it’s all legit, and I know she puts 100% of her heart into loving the Haitian people. And, as you can see, and as our team has seen, many have been blessed because of her.>>Sherry: We’re here in the mobile clinic here in Le Tant, and this little girl, she’s probably about 2 or 3 years old. Her mom brought her today. [speaking in a foreign language]>>female: Berline.>>Sherry: Berline? Berline has something down in her ear. Like, it could be a rock, or it’s a foreign object that the doctor has got to get out. But we just don’t know what’s gonna happen today, but all kind of things happens in clinics like this.>>Sherry: Oh, yeah. I do see it. I do see it! It’s white.>>Julie: It’s white! So it’s right up there. It’s infected. You very rarely see ’em that bad. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Dr. Edmond: Love A Child?>>female: Uh-huh.>>Sherry: Oh, Love A Child?>>Dr. Edmond: Everybody know Love A Child. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Dr. Edmond: I’ll be okay. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Sherry: Okay. Well, this baby has got–we thought it was a bean, but it’s a bug that’s in her ear. It’s died. Part of it’s out, but the other part is in her, and you can see the infection, the white infection that it’s caused in this baby’s ear. So he’s gonna get it out right now, and he’s really good at what he does, and so we’re really thankful that this little baby came to the clinic today.>>female: Father, in the name of Jesus, we pray that what Dr. Edmond’s doing will cause that thing to come out, in Jesus’ name.>>male announcer: There aremultitudes of malnourishedbabies and starving childrenwho live in Haiti.Babies and childrenwho, if not helped, will jointhe hundreds who are dyingdaily.Lack of food, clean water,sanitary conditions,and medical care,mean children under the age of 5are at the highest risk.Love A Child medical teams arereaching out to these childrenwho have nothing, and are givingthem hope: hope to survive,hope to live, and hope to havegood health.Love A Child clinics provideassistance to these impoverishedchildren who have never seena doctor or receivedmedical care.We need your help now:$50 sponsors 50 childrento visit the medical clinic,$100 sponsors 100 children,and $1,000 provides a clinicfor an entire village.You may also providea family with a complete packageof medication for only $20.Will you hear the cryof the poor now and allowyour heart to be touched?Remember, $50 sponsors50 children to visit the clinic,$100 sponsors 100 children,and $1,000 provides a clinicfor an entire village.You may also supplya complete family packof medicationfor these poor familiesto take homefor only $20 apiece.Please call the numberon your screen nowor write today and say,“I want to helpthe hurting children of Haiti.”>>Sherry: We’re here in a mobile clinic in Old Le Tant, Haiti. It’s a village of mud huts. We’re just surrounded by many more poor children. Here’s a little boy by the name of Reggie, who’s 12 years old, never been to school, is a very poor child. He’s got a very complicated inner ear infection with yellow liquid running out of it, and he’s had this infection for a long time. The doctor is afraid that maybe he may be deaf, and he’s trying to clean it out today and give him antibiotics and see if that’ll help him, but just imagine this child. And, in fact, Julie, our daughter, just went to a mud hut to visit this boy’s father, and he was very sick today. And so we’re just trying to do the best that we can. You know, we not only go to villages like this, but we go far into the mountains, many areas of Haiti, and we take the mobile clinics to the people who are in the very worst places. We cross rivers, we climb mountains, we ride mules, we do anything that we can. We walk on foot. We do anything we can to take mobile clinics and the healing power that we have that God has given us to the poorest of the poor. Help us to continue to do this. Thank you. God bless you. [music]>>Sherry: So this is Ernesto. Ernesto. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Sherry: Dr. James, he’s bad. Look at how malnourished he is. Look how dry his hands are. Wow, and his ribs are sticking out. You could feel every rib. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Sherry: Now we’ve got two doctors on this one. Two Haitian doctors, which is good because they know more about the things that happen in Haiti than we would in the states. We never see these things in the states.>>Sherry: Look, he’s gonna test him. Now he’s got–his sweet feet are swollen like that.>>Dr. James: Malnutrition. Malnutrition.>>Sherry: Malnutrition, definitely. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Sherry: Yeah.>>Dr. Edmond: Yeah.>>Sherry: Well, he’s got a lot of problems.>>Sherry: Ernesto is like 12 years old. His skin is dry. His arms are like little bones. I can feel every rib in his body. But his mom said he’s only been like this for 2 months. No. This started a long time ago. [music] [Ernesto crying]>>Sherry: God, please help him, Jesus. Yes, baby. Okay, baby. Okay, baby. [Ernesto crying] [speaking in a foreign language]>>Sherry: God, help him. Father, in the name of Jesus. No, baby. No, baby. [speaking in a foreign language] [Ernesto crying] [music]>>Sherry: All right.

This is the last part of our mobile clinic they come 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 one of the least of these little ones, ye have done it unto me.” So here we are, you and I together. You’re prayin’. You’ve been helpin’ financially 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 got Joseph over here, who prays, and I pray. 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, worm medicine. It also has this bag, rice, and a special milk for the babies. And it’s a blessin’ because love is something that you do. God bless ya from a word from the mission field here in Haiti today. God bless you. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Debbie: I don’t know how many of these trips I’ve been on, back to back. Every time I come, I think, “My job is done. This will be the last one that I will do.” And then I think about the people, and it doesn’t matter what village you go to in Haiti. Look at these precious people. They have no medical care. Outside of Love A Child, they have no one to help them. These are mamas who love their little babies, whose hearts break when their kids are sick. These are people who have great hopes and great dreams, and if someone such as Love A Child does not come and serve them, these are the people who are forgotten. These are the people, to me, who the Bible declares, sit in great darkness. I could not ever begin to adequately describe the enormous work that Love A Child does. I have a privilege that I get to be here! You may not have the opportunity or the resources to come, but you can send Love A Child. You can supply them with what they need. You can pray for them. You can sign up for trips. Perhaps you can help sponsor a clinic. If I remember correctly, it takes $1,000–that’s it– to bring medical care to these precious people. This is what never gets old to me. This is what tugs at my heart. These people are what keeps me awake at night. Are they precious? You look at their smiles. You look at the beautiful children. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Debbie: Loving, kind, precious people. So let’s bring–let’s do everything we can to bring the light of Jesus Christ to people such as this village. [music] [music]>>Sherry: This is Edna Shalon de Jean Louie. [speaking in a foreign language]>>Sherry: Three and a half years old. After we’ve closed the clinic down, the father has just walked up the mountain with this baby, and she’s had a bad fever for 15 days, but she’s also got an ear infection. She’s also severely–>>female: Chest infection.>>Sherry: Chest infection. And I see pus coming out of her ear too. Glenda, so what do you see so far?>>Glenda O’Brien: I see this little baby has got a nasty perforated ear drum. She’s got swelling over her sinus on her face. She’s got–the insides of her nose is all–it’s bloody, but it’s also excoriated and swollen and inflamed. She’s got blistered all over her mouth, and her mouth is so dry, it’s hard for her to open it. She’s got no tonsil problems, which is good, but she’s got a significant heart murmur, and the beat has become irregular. Her liver is enlarged, just from a very gentle feel. She’s very wet. She’s passing urine as well, and she’s older than that, and so my worry would be she’s also got a urine infection as well.>>Sherry: And thank God we were here today. I mean, the man that we just saw a few moments ago, we could do nothing for but pray for him, but there’s still hope for this little girl. But if we had not been here today, she would die, and she’s still very close to it right now but–so that means that we have to get her help immediately.>>Glenda: If we weren’t here, she wouldn’t have the options that she has today.>>Sherry: No, no. So we just ask you right now, if you can help us in any way with our clinics with medical needs, with medicine, if you want to give an offering, help with any way, emergency care, whatever, please do so. But more than that, we need prayer. We need miracles every day.

What made you do that?” Because it really wasn’t in our plan when we moved to Haiti. But, you know, I remember it so well, the day that we went to visit a mother who was dying. Her husband had died, and there were four malnourished children standing right there beside the hut. And she made me promise, “Madam Sherry, when I die, please take my four children and raise them.” And I promised her we would, and I went right back and told you, Bobby. I remember how excited you were!>>Bobby: Yeah, she did! She came back and told me, and really, I got mad! I said, “Sherry, I waited all these years. Our two children are grown and gone. Now we have to start all over, raisin’ four more children, and I don’t know if I can show them the love the way I showed our two children. It’s a big responsibility.”>>Sherry: Yes.>>Bobby: Well, we took in the four children, then it became 30 children, 40 children, 50 children, 60 children, 70 children, 80 children, and still growin’ today. But love is somethin’ you do! Ask for the book, and you’ll understand how, when you give out love, you will get back so much more love. How love can grow!>>announcer: For your free copyof Bobby and Sherry Burnette’snew book,“Love Is Something You Do,”simply give your giftof any amount and requestthe book.Call the number on your screen,write to the address,or go to the websiteand give your gift now.Remember, to receiveyour free copyof Bobby and Sherry’s new book,“Love Is Something You Do,”simply give your giftof any amountand request the book.>>Julie: I know you hear me say this every single clinic, “We need more medicine.” We can never have enough. We’ve got just a tiny bit of vitamins left, and vitamins are probably the most important thing that we hand out in a mobile clinic. We are out of adult vitamins. We’re out of children’s vitamins. We’re out of folic acid. I think we’re almost out of iron. So those are the most important things that we hand out in the mobile clinic.>>Sherry: Okay.>>Julie: And vitamins, adult vitamins, we only just have a few packs left.>>Sherry: Let’s see, let’s see. In the last clinic, we saw over 1,000 people.>>Julie: In Nippes, we saw–>>Sherry: Over 1,000 people.>>Julie: Yeah, over 1,000 people–1,100 people we saw in Nippes.>>Sherry: So all those people got all those medicines. There were 3,000 of ’em.>>Julie: Every single person got medication. Every single person got vitamins. So I just want to point this out to you. It’s not gonna be a perfect clinic today because all these–>>Sherry: All those empty buckets.>>Julie: Anyway, I think that we have some over there and probably some over here that are just half full.>>Sherry: Okay. We’ll do our best.>>Julie: We have to do our best ’cause that’s all we have.>>Sherry: Okay. Thank you. If you want to sponsor a mobile clinic, you know, the need is so great. We give people a lot of medicines in our mobile clinic. We give them great care. So please pray about sponsoring a mobile clinic today with a gift of $1,000, or there’ll be other things you could sponsor during the program. God bless you. Gotta get to work. Thank you.>>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 barreled-shaped chest. He’s got little, tiny, skinny arms. This little baby is 7. This little baby is 7 years old. Seven 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. 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.” [speaking in a foreign language] [music] [speaking in a foreign language]>>Sherry: Yeah, egzakteman.>>Julie: What is it, Mom? Is something else in the–>>Sherry: Well, you know the part of the ear that’s the inner ear?>>Julie: Uh-huh.>>Sherry: See, the liquid is yellow liquid, pouring out of it for years. And he’s gonna clean it out.>>Dr. Edmond: I need a trash bag.>>Sherry: Trash bag! Right here, Doctor.>>Dr. Edmond: Okay.>>Sherry: Okay?>>Julie: It’s been pouring out for years?>>Sherry: Yeah, and he doesn’t know if he’s gonna be able to hear or not, but he should’ve been seen a long time ago. He’s never been to the doctor or anything. Yeah. So here we have Dr. Edmond. We’re here in a mobile clinic in the village Le Tant, and we come across a little boy by the name of Reggie, and he has an inner ear infection with liquid that’s been pouring out of it, the doctor said, “for years.” They’ve never taken him to a doctor, a clinic, a hospital, anything. So there is a chance that the doctor can help him, but he said if he doesn’t get help, he won’t never be able to hear in that ear. He’s 12 years old. He’s very poor. He’s got worms. He’s lethargic. He’s anemic. He’s never been to school. He’s just goin’ from bad to worse, and now to think that a child in this poor village could be deaf. It’s just unheard of. You know, Love A Child not only does mobile clinics here within reach of our clinic, but we travel to the mountains like Savaan Pit. We cross rivers. We go up high mountains. We go to voodoo villages like Despizio, where a lot of people are worshipping the spirits in a tree. And we conduct mobile clinics so we can win people to the Lord. We go to the high mountains of Peyi Pouri, and you could just see where the people–we’ve been giving ’em out food, and it looks like a train of ants climbing up the mountains with food on their backs. And then we provide medical care, the best medical care those people could ever have. And then, of course, we went to South Haiti. We went to Dumont, Haiti, where there was a disaster. A hurricane had hit. We went there and did a mobile clinic. We went to Nippes, just recently, where the disaster had also hit. We provided a mobile clinic for the poor. And we’ve been to so many other areas of Haiti, always providing mobile clinics and taking a lot of medicines, places like La Roche, Haiti, way up in the riverbed, and even further up to Lastik, where we treated so many people. And we can only do this with your help. If some people say, “Let me sponsor 50 children to come to the mobile clinic,” a gift of $50 will provide 50 children to go to the mobile clinic; $100 will let 100 children be treated in a mobile clinic with consultation and with all the medicines they need. And if they need to go to the hospital, we’ll send them to the hospital. And, of course, a gift of $1,000 provides a mobile clinic. I mean, you just never know where your money is going to take this mobile clinic. Maybe somebody in a far place has been praying that we would come. So your gift of $1,000 can provide a mobile clinic. We never know where that mobile clinic is gonna be, but there’s people right now prayin’ that we’ll come, and you can be the answer to their prayer. I always say, “We’re not the Good Samaritans. You are the Good Samaritans,” because you really become the hands and feet of Jesus by letting us go. Please pray about what God would have you do today. Your gift, large or small, $20 will provide a bag, a medical bag of medicine for a family to take back to the mountains. On the last day when we go to close a clinic, maybe we can’t treat everybody, but we can give those moms hope. And so many hundreds of bags of medicines have been handed out on the last days of the clinic. But, please, just do something. You know, these are your neighbors. You may not realize it, but you are the Good Samaritan, right there, from your living room. Will you stop a minute? Don’t be like the people who went by on the other side, but will you just stop for just a moment and hear the voice of God and send help? Please. Thank you, from Haiti.
