With InterVarsity campus ministers in Haiti
July 12, 2011
I (Jonathan) am in Haiti this week with a team of campus ministers from InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, an interdenominational group serving students and faculty across the nation. IVCF’s vision is to see students and faculty transformed, campuses renewed, and world changers developed.
At William & Mary, I had the privilege of being a part of this movement, and now, I’m getting to partner with IVCF again here in Haiti! This team is exploring setting up a Global Urban Trek that gives students a 6 week opportunity to explore international development, social justice, and working with the poor out of a devotion to Christian faith. Treks have spread out across the globe to Cairo, Kalkota, Manila, Mexico City, and Bangkok, and hundreds of students have gone on to devote their lives to working with the poor.
This week, the team is staying with families in our network out in Darbonne and Cabois. They’re teaching English, crafts, and music to students and teachers in our schools. The energy has been incredible, everybody’s having a lot of fun and learning a lot. Stay tuned for more to come!
