While I was in Texas, I met a wonderful dancer, artist, and person, Whitney Dufrene. She has a wonderful heart and a strong passion to serve others. Please take a moment to read about her story and the vision she would like to share with others!
AD DEUM DANCE TRIP TO HAITI
My name is Whitney Dufrene and I am a dancer with Ad Deum Dance company in Houston, TX. Ad Deum, founded and directed by Randall Flinn, is a professional contemporary modern dance company dedicated to the glory of God and the service of His creation. We are a passionate group of 27 members, all committed to Jesus Christ and the furthering of His glorious kingdom. We believe that dance has power to encourage, heal, transform, inspire, and bring hope to all. It is our deepest desire to share the love of Christ wherever we are sent.
I personally have had the privilege of going to Haiti with Global Orphan Project on two different vision trips within the last three years. These trips, time spent with the beautiful children and their amazing caretakers, changed my life forever. It is absolutely impossible to articulate accurately in words. God taught me so much–opening my eyes to the movement of His Spirit, and His Abba heart for His children.
Since my last vision trip, God has blessed me with an opportunity to dance with Ad Deum Dance Company. It is an extremely deep hope of mine for Ad Deum to travel to Haiti on a vision trip, bringing dances of hope, joy and encouragement to the beautiful people there. It is my desire to celebrate the Haitian people and culture, and spend precious, priceless time with them–building relationships, living in intentional community, and sharing the creativity, beauty, light, joy, and hope of God through the art of dance. Art is powerful! It can yield change. It can be used to worship our Lord Jesus Christ!
We have a big dream, but we have a bigger God. I humbly ask that you would pray about helping our team get there. Thank you so much!
God bless you!
