Her Love for Haiti

On April 18, 2010 Laurie Plante will join DribbleTheWorld when she dribbles 12.4 miles in the Penn Relays Distance Classic 20k in Philly!

Laurie will be dribbling to support The Fondation Madame Mauviette Toussaint, an orphanage in Haiti that she was able to work with while she was on her Spring Break from BBC  in March.  Here are some of Laurie’s favorite pictures from her time there.

Laurie was used mightily during her time in Haiti. She was a blessing to the children at the Fondation and to all of those she came in contact with. Her desire to seek Christ and use her talents for Him is inspiring to those around her. Here are some more pictures of the basketball courts in Haiti and a group photo of Laurie and a group of kids she was able to play soccer with throughout the week.

Check back next week to see how she did! We’re praying for you Lau and can’t wait to see you dribbling on Sunday! Praise the Lord for what He is doing with you and through you!

    13 miles…with the shape that you are in girl…that’s nothing…a walk in the park…may God be your strength sister!! Live fully in the moment!!

  10. avatar Morgan Says:

    Laurie, our prayers will be with you as you dribble! As you go I pray that God will remind you of the people you met in Haiti, and how with each bounce of the ball you are choosing to love them. Love is a choice that is shown through actions, and is a way to know the Lord. So, each step and each dribble and each drop of sweat will be you choosing to love the people you met the way that the Lord loves them!
