The Hands and Feet Project in southern Haiti has a mission to care for the orphaned and abandoned children of the world with the love of Christ, and Bryan College now shares in that mission.

The project’s vision is two-fold, according to the organization’s website. Its first ambition is to raise up a generation of orphaned children who will reach their God-given potential. Secondly, they strive to empower first-world citizens to partner with them in service, both at home and abroad. Bryan College has recently become one of those partners.

Mark Stuart, former lead singer of Audio Adrenaline, is a co-founder of the project and a new friend of Bryan College.

“Mark spoke in chapel this spring and struck a chord with us,” said Ben Norquist, director of Faith and Mission.

Audio Adrenaline recently performed at the college, and Stuart came back to spend more time with students in chapel and in vision meetings about Bryan working together with Hands and Feet.

Students have an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus, along with other believers committed to being the “best last resort” for Haiti’s 800,000 orphans.

Business professor Brad Gatlin will lead a Break for Change trip to Haiti in March. Spending a week with the Hands and Feet Project, the team will learn about orphan care and advise Haitians on developing small businesses.

Bryan students can help care for the orphaned and abandoned children of the world with the love of Christ by partnering with the Hands and Feet Project. They can take action by being involved with the Kid’s Mission Project, running in a 5k or a marathon, donating money or volunteering.

Serve Christ by serving others and obeying our mission stated in Matthew 25:40 (ESV). “And the King will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”
