Meet Alex, HTF Summer Intern 2013

Hello my name is Alex Henning.  In mid-May I’ll be going to Haiti on a two month long internship with the Haitian Timoun Foundation (HTF).  I’ve been down there twice before, once with a dental clinic from Sheridan (Lutheran Church in Lincoln, NE).  The second time I went down with the UNL Lutheran Student Center to clear rubble after the earthquake.  I’m currently a sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  On my internship I’ll be working with an after school and summer program at Tetkole in Jacmel, Haiti.  Tetkole is a place where street children of Jacmel are provided shelter, food and education after school.  While helping at Tetkole I’ll also be creating and cleaning up biographies of the children at Tetkole for HTF.  Close to the end of my time I’ll be helping set up for a VBS camp, called Fet Bondye, where a group from Sheridan will be coming to volunteer.  I’m truly grateful for the opportunity that I have been given and ask for your prayers for my journey.
