It didnâ€™t take long for her to join in with other volunteer doctors and nurses treating wounded people at the Harvard Humanitarian Relief Initiative/Love a Child field hospital in Parisien, Haiti.
â€śIt was painful to hear the screams of burn victims who had undergone skin grafts to get their wounds cleaned,â€ť Landis says. â€śBut I tried to show them Godâ€™s love by treating them and praying for them.â€ť She says she left the country â€śhumbledâ€ť by the resolve of the Haitian people.
Landis, wife of pastor Randy Landis of Lifechurch in Allentown, Penn., is no stranger to Haiti. Lifechurch operates Rescue Children Orphanage in Port-au-Prince, where the majority of the estimated 230,000 earthquake-related deaths occurred. Fortunately, all 11 of the ministryâ€™s orphans made it out alive as their home crumbled around them.
