The Love Poster
Two years ago, the students of Trinity Lutheran School heard about the terrible earthquake that struck the nation of Haiti. The earthquake killed thousands of people and pretty much destroyed the capital city of Port Au Prince.
Everyone at the church and school prayed for Haiti. Many people gave money and food to help the people and to rebuild. People are still helping the Haitian people in any way they can.
Outside of Port Au Prince there is a Lutheran mission station called The Village of Hope. There is a school there and a place where people can be fed. There is also a clinic that is now finished where everyone from that region can get help. It is a miracle that the Village of Hope was not destroyed by the earthquake.
Trinity Lutheran School students, with the help from Mrs. Zieg and their teachers decided they wanted to help. First, they collected quarters… “Quarters For the Clinic” they called it. They collected 3,986 quarters – $996.50. Then, they heard the students at the Village of Hope needed school supplies…so they started bringing in pencils and notebooks and everything a student needs. Their efforts collected over 400 pounds of school supplies and that the students at the Village of Hope are making good use of them.
Our students wanted to do more. They wanted to send them something that truly represents the love that they feel for their friends in Haiti. They asked Mrs. Lambert and Mrs. Gonzalez if they would help to paint a poster that all could sign. They named it, “The Love Poster.”
Here’s the best part. On Monday January 23, Mrs. Lambert to presented the Love Poster to the children at the Village of Hope…in person! Prior to her journey, the Love Poster was dedicated to the Glory of God at all three services at Trinity Lutheran Church. The students presented the poster to the congregation, told the story and offered a prayer of dedication, asking for safe travels for Mrs. Lambert and blessings for the ministry at Village of Hope.
