We’re the Bridges family, Scott, Alicia, Alaina and Anessa.
We’re serving at Sonlight Academy, teaching students about Jesus and presenting Christianity as a way of life; offering the hope of Christ in a culture of Voodoo and poverty.Part of the Sonlight Academy teaching staff for nine years in Port-de-Paix, Haiti, Alicia teaches fifth grade and Scott teaches high school sciences and computers. Anessa will be a Junior at Sonlight and Alaina just graduated valedictorian. She will be attending Harding University this Fall to study Software Development.
Sonlight Academy is the children’s educational program of Sonlight Ministries. As an English-immersion school, students receive instruction solely in English. English is the business language of Haiti, and fluency guarantees students a wider choice of careers upon graduation. Sonlight Academy is the sole English-immersion school in Haiti.
Sonlight’s goal since the beginning has been to teach about Jesus Christ, to present Christianity as a way of life. We preach about the one and only God who is stronger than the Voodoo spirits most Haitians believe in.
We hope to raise up future Christian leaders for Haiti – Haitians to evangelize Haiti.
