Guest Post: CHRISTUS Team Prepares for Haiti

As Dr. Royer is in Haiti with the CHRISTUS team, updates on the team’s work there will be posted by the CHRISTUS Communications team in Dallas.

On Friday, the 20-member team comprised of 18 clinicians and 2 chaplains gathered in the CHRISTUS Health headquarters in Dallas for orientation and commissioning. Members of CHRISTUS’ Task Force on Haitian Relief gave presentations to the team about the situation on the ground in Haiti; our relationship with our partner, the University of Miami; risk management; supplies and logistics and the demobilization process.

After orientation, the Associates in the Dallas office held a brief commissioning ceremony for the team headed to Haiti, raising their hands in blessing for the team’s work and their safety while they travel abroad to fulfill our mission of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ by serving our brothers and sisters affected by the earthquake there.
