Zach called me yesterday from Haiti and told me that he was exhausted but things were going well. He will only be down there one more week before heading back to Arizona and then off to the Phillipines. He has been getting more flying than he expected as the word spread and needs were made known. Today Zach flew out and picked up a 2 year old girl that needs heart surgery. He has been doing quite a few medevacs which come with their own challenges because the stakes are high on both ends. He is in good health and the helicopter continues to operate perfectly which is a real blessing.
Zach said the locals are fearing the rainy season, and the disease that will spread in the months to come as there are still many bodies still un-recovered and people are living in tents. In many ways the struggles are just beginning for Haiti as the worlds focus moves on to other things. The helicopter belonging to Samaritan Air, that Zach has been flying, will stay in Haiti indefinitely as the needs are still very great. Thank God for the people who are able to be there for the long-haul.
