“I want my students to see and experience a career- influencing example of how to use their burgeoning engineering skills as a service to people and God. I want their understanding of vocation and service to grow and crystalize as a result of the technical experience and the interpersonal interactions with Haitian locals. I want them to feel what it is like to meet and befriend Christian brothers and sisters from a different culture. I want them to glimpse the depth and breadth of global poverty and formulate a personal and professional response to it.”-Brian Thomas, Team Leader
