Tonight we all leave our homes and will reunite in the place we have all been waiting anxiously to be in: HAITI!
We are so ecstatic that the time is finally here. Thank you to everyone who has supported us in anticipation of this day. Prayers for safety and protection are appreciated; that everything goes smoothly!
We will try to update the blog in country as much as possible, to key you in on our escapades 🙂
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH SO MUCH EXCITEMENT
On Sunday we participated in an event called Sprint Sundae. Every team set up a booth in Martin Square on campus – to tell students about our trip, and give them free ice cream with yummy toppings! It was a blast, and a major shout out to everyone who signed up to follow our blog 🙂
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.
