As you are aware, a devastating earthquake took place in Haiti January 12. Twelve students and two faulty members from Lynn University (Boca Raton, Florida) were participating in the university’s service-learning trip, “Journey of Hope-Haiti”*, last week when the earthquake hit.
Eight of the students have returned to Lynn University, but there are still four students and two faculty members missing. Please keep in your prayers the four remaining students, Stephanie Crispinelli, Courtney Hayes, Christine Gianacaci, and Britney Gengal; and the two missing faculty members, Patrick Hartwick, PH.D., dean of Ross College of Education, and Richard Bruno, MD, assistant professor, College of Liberal Education.
Regular updates on the search for the students and faculty are provided on Lynn’s website, http://www.lynn.edu/alert.
Lynn University students are keeping up a prayer vigil by lighting candles in front of campus every evening until all members of the campus community have returned home from Haiti.
