My name is Siera! I am a freshman here at Seattle Pacific and I intend on majoring in Business Admin. A few things about me, I have a passion for God’s people and for exploring His creation. I love having conversations over coffee, hiking, and going on adventures. Going to Haiti is one adventure I cannot wait to experience! It has been a joy getting to know the other girls as we prepare for our journey. I know that God is going to do amazing things. Thanks for joining in on our adventure!
My name is Hannah Peterson and I am so excited to be preparing to go to Haiti with SPRINT and with my fellow teammates, who are wonderful. I am a junior English/Creative-writing major and an Illustration minor, and I love to write stories as well as paint and draw: hopefully I can publish something someday Right now, I want to give my life over to God to do what he needs with it, and one of the first steps is going on a mission trip where I can meet others from another country who are doing the same thing.
I am from Whidbey Island of the deep forests and beautiful beaches, and I miss its quietness sometimes. But I still love Seattle with all its excitement and opportunities! I have been very blessed, and want to share in the joy of the Lord with everyone we meet in Haiti, as well as learn how huge God is. He reaches every culture, every country, and every people…
So excited!! Thank you for prayer and support,
My name is Claire Pearson, a freshman here at the wonderful Seattle Pacific University. I am from colorful Colorado but have found a temporary home here in the city, and I am loving every bit of it so far. Some pieces of me: I adore all things art; people and their stories fascinate me; coffee is my addiction; I find solace in words by writing them, reading them, or speaking them; my family (all 6 of them, and my hedgehog named Theo) are my core; music is my muse; and I don’t know who or where I would be without my Maker whom I love. Haiti is so much more than a pinpoint on a map for me, as I have been hoping to go for years now. I have so much excitement for this trip and faith in how God will use us for his grander plan. Gah! Cannot wait.
Thank you for your support, it means the world.

Hello, I’m Sophia! I am a junior at SPU currently studying sociology. I am originally from beautiful, sunny California but still love my beautiful (rainy) Seattle. I love all things having to do with, dancing, baking, or speaking in baby voices to any and all animals I come across. (You can find me chasing and snuggling all the neighborhood kitties).
I am incredibly excited for my trip to Haiti and am already loving my team (I’m a little obsessed with them).
I am greatly looking forward to serving the people of Haiti and working along side the community, seeing how God’s love shines through regardless of circumstances.
Here’s a team photo from this weekend’s SPRINT training retreat.

SPRINT engages Seattle Pacific University students in short-term summer international missions and service trips in partnership with local community leaders around the globe. SPRINT’s pre-trip training and post-trip debriefing processes emphasize the importance of understanding culture, partnering alongside development instead of perpetuating colonialism, and the value of a life-long integration of faith, learning and service.
This summer SPRINT will send teams to 8 countries around the world. Learn more at www.spu.edu/sprint.
Students will serve hand in hand in materially-poor communities and the local church. Program includes construction work on a vocational school and Vacation Bible School. Learn more our partners in Haiti, the Foundation for Peace, at www.foundationforpeace.org.
