What Haiti Meant to Me – Special Guest Bloggers

September 12, 2010 — Leave a comment

On our recent trip to Haiti, we had 3 students on the trip. Nick, Savannah and Amanda. I asked Amanda and Savannah to be guest bloggers this week and write about what Haiti meant to. Here are their responses:

The trip to Haiti was memorable and life changing. See all the children’s faces light up when we arrived was amazing. Like when we went up to the parachute village, their faces just lit up because they knew we were coming to help and bring the things they needed. I learned the difference between wanting something and needing something – Savannah 9/5/2010

The trip to Haiti was life changing. Since then I have learned the difference between wants and needs. It was heartbreaking and amazing at the same time. The people have nothing, yet they have so much faith. In all, the Haiti trip was amazing. I am eager to go back and I am inspired to help Haiti in any way I can – Amanda 9/5/2010

What are you doing to develop the next generation of leaders?
