Robert & Marcia Vermaire

Since 2014, Bob and Marcia have been at the Wesleyan Hospital on the Haitian island of La Gonave. It is the only hospital on this island of 100,000 people.

As the only non-Haitian doctor on staff, Bob’s goal is to improve the clinical skills of the young doctors who work there. He also wants to help them grow hearts of compassion while at the same time helping them to see Jesus in the patients that they treat. Marcia works in central supply. She also gives guidance to visitors and teams, introducing them to the mission’s work and to the broader community. Through their work they hope to strengthen the connection between North American followers of Jesus and their brothers and sisters in Haiti.

“. . . that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith” (Romans 1:12 NIV).
