Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Perhaps you are already aware of the situation with this young man, Jean Renaud Dufrene, at The Good Samaritan Project here in Haiti. He is 33 years old but looks like a 13 year old boy. He has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. We urgently ask you to be in prayer with us for him. We did all we had to do at our level in Haiti and have obtained a referral from competent Doctors in Haiti who told us that Haiti is not equipped for such an operation as is needed for Jean. With our small financial capacity, we paid for Jean to obtain a Passport and a Dominican Visa.
On Wednesday, June 21st, I accompanied him to Santo Domingo, which is a nine hour bus drive. I stayed with him for four days but could not get him in to see any Doctor. But thank God after six days we finally got to the information desk of a public general hospital, but were only able to get an appointment to see the Doctor on September 5th.
The bottom line is, we have two options: one is for Jean to wait for that appointment, which will be to redo the same process he undertook in Haiti and wait for a decision. It will apparently be the same -- that he has to have surgery; and he will have to suffer a much longer wait. In this case he may need less than $10.000 US dollars for everything.
The other option is to speed up the process by going to a private Clinic to get a referral from a Dominican Doctor to a semi-private hospital. In this case, he will suffer less as the process will be much faster but the cost will be higher. Likely from ten to fifteen thousand dollars for treatment first and with surgery included.
So please continue to pray for us, especially for Jeanjan. And whatever way the Lord shall lead you to help us crossing this very difficult valley, please do as the Lord provides. We thank you in advance in the name of our Lord.
