Haiti Partners Youth Choir and Dance Troupe
May 15, 2009
Here’s a powerful music video with our Haiti Children’s Choir, a group of 20 children in Mariaman, Haiti. This initiative is coordinated by Merline Engle, who works as a volunteer. The choir is thriving and has more invitations to sing in churches in the greater Port au Prince area than they’re able to respond to. And this choir is about so much more than singing and dancing. The kids have gained self-confidence and are learning to work through conflict and problems in constructive ways. Director, Alex Myril, uses Lectio Divina, a prayerful and participative method of Bible study in their sessions. Alex is part of a 3-year Haiti Partners leadership development program.
