His Heart for Haiti

Giving Hope Through Child Sponsorship

Tales of Trinity

Leave a comment

Trinity has loved Haiti since the day we arrived. We weren’t surprised by that, but she didn’t get to visit even once before we moved here (same for Grant and Grace)! We are very encouraged by her attitude and the ways she has adapted to the culture and language while having to leave school, family and friends, and switch to home schooling and being at home a good part of each day! The girl has learned a lot about self-motivation in a short time [understatement!].

A neighborhood girl came asking for a sponsor and ended up getting both a sponsor and a regular Bible study with Trinity!

Trinity loves the Haitian people, the young group, Bible study, sharing the gospel, the ocean, and making new friends. She points out the beauties around us…trees, sunsets, butterflies, etc. She has remained athletic, playing basketball and volleyball every week with the missionaries, and hiking is another highlight she enjoys. She also enjoys tutoring other children and helping teach English.

Getting to see and hold Haitian babies is really awesome!

Nearly every Saturday, Trinity enjoys interacting with the Haitians in a small group setting at the nearby American University of the Caribbean’s conversation club. For two hours each one that comes is encouraged to speak to improve their English, and usually we try to steer the conversations to spiritual topics and the Bible. There have been many opportunities to share the gospel. Often we are put on the hot seat when they start asking questions. This has really encouraged Trinity in her walk with the Lord to lean on the Holy Spirit for words to speak.

In addition to the girl in the first photo, Trinity met another friend at the conversation club that also comes to our house once a week for English/Bible study.

The English conversation club is one of Trinity's favorite parts of the week.

Trinity loves drawing, painting and card making. She suggested (and will help produce) the Christmas craft for Grace’s 3rd grade class. She really enjoys the beauty of the many things in Haiti that are so different from what she was familiar with in Ohio.
