It didnât 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.
âIt was painful to hear the screams of burn victims who had undergone skin grafts to get their wounds cleaned,â Landis says. âBut I tried to show them Godâs love by treating them and praying for them.â She says she left the country âhumbledâ 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 ministryâs orphans made it out alive as their home crumbled around them.
