January 14, 2019, the Jacmel Lutheran Home accepted its’s first residents! A professional team from the Perry Lutheran Home and Lutheran Family Service of Iowa, helped Ministry In Mission evaluate, transport and provide the initial care to the first 5 residents .
Melissa Gannon, LPN, B.S. from Perry Lutheran Home along with Junior Laurent from Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Haitians Emmanual Michel , Rev. Eda and Widline Dubreuze, Director of the Jacmel Lutheran Home, formed the team that interviewed, assessed and moved the new residents to the Jacmel Lutheran Home.
The residents were transported to the Jacmel Lutheran Home on a mattress in the back of a pick-up truck . Upon arriving, Deb Koelln, RN, CDP and Kelly Moore, RN bathed the new residents, assisted them in getting dressed in new clothes donated to Ministry In Mission. The new residents were examined by Dr. Accul Pierre-Louis, staff doctor at the Jacmel Lutheran Home. Blood work was ordered and medication prescribed based on the doctor’s recommendation.
