Tonight we were honored by the YMCA in Medicine Hat for our contribution to the projects in Haiti. I received this on behalf of all of you that have helped to make a difference in the lives of the precious children of Haiti. Thank you for making a difference... one child at a time....
I leave for Haiti on Sunday the 29th and return on the 16th of Dec.
We need help in feeding the orphans in our orphanage in Jacmel. For only $600. per month we can feed all 27 children and the staff. Will you consider helping?
We would like to again this year put on a Christmas dinner for all our schools. Because the shortage in funds we are not able to do this.. Will you consider making a donation towards this?
We will need $2150.00 to feed all 4300 children and teachers as special turkey dinner.. You can make your cheque out to Lifeline Haiti and mail it to - 1008 College Dr SE, Medicine Hat, Ab. T1A 7J1 .... Drop me a message on my e-mail if you are able to help so we know in advance if we will be able to do this for the children... firstname.lastname@example.org

We had a great couple of hours of firearms training this morning with the some of the police from Jacmel. They are looking forward to our next session. It has been many years since I have done some teaching in firearms training. It felt great to get my feet wet again. You can double click on the picture to make the picture larger....

Gifts were received with much excitement and joy. For some of the children their shoes were too small but wore them anyway even though it hurt so they could go to school. Now they have shoes that fit... Thank you everyone that helped.... thank you for making a difference....... Bob & Linda

We had meetings with the Chief of Police of all the south of Haiti and the Mayor of Jacmel. In our discussion we talked about their desperate need of repairs to broken down equipment and the costs to repair. To fix the two ambulances with new motors in each would be about $14,000. for both vehicles and to get a fire truck operating would be about $1200.
I talked to the Police Chief of my background in firearms training and offered my assistance to his police force. He immediate response was when could I start, so we are going to have our first training session on Monday morning with 30 of his men. Interesting point is they have no ammunition to practice with. I will teach them how they can practice without ammunition. Perhaps we can find a few cases of .38 special, 9mm and shotgun shells for them to send from Canada....

Visit to the local fire department in Jacmel found they are in desperate need of training and equipment.. The two ambulances do not work. Engines in both of them are ceased. There are 16 firemen that work combination Police and Firemen. You can see their gym for weightlifting, their bunks for the overnight shifts and one of the fire trucks is a 1957 vintage. The breaks do not work in this truck so they are down to one truck. You can see one of the firemen carrying a side arm as they can get called out on police matters at any time...... I see this as another way we an help to make it safer for the Firemen and the people of Jacmel to help in this area of need.....
