Suburban Lake Worth missionary helping the handicapped and orphaned in Haiti

This article about a suburban Lake Worth woman appeared in the print edition of The Palm Beach Post today (8/23), B section page 3. For many years Miriam Frederick has had a mission in Haiti helping the disadvantaged there. Reporter Kevin Thompson interviewed her and here is part of the Q&A with the missionary:
Q [reporter]: With all the time you spend in Haiti, does it take an emotional toll?
A: Since hurricane Sandy, I spend the majority of my time in Haiti. It is emotional but when you see children’s lives being saved, it’s worth the time and effort.
Q: How did you initially get involved in helping Haiti?
A: An opportunity was given to me over thirty years ago for a mission trip and that is when my heart turned to Haiti. I returned to the United States and became a nurse to equip myself to help the people of Haiti.
