LQVE HAITI is a way of expressing love to the country of Haiti as well as honoring the life of Quincy Foster. As a college student at MidAmerica Nazarene University Quincy took a trip to Haiti in 2013. It was during this time she realized a desire to spend her life helping others through nursing. By the time she returned home it was obvious she was captivated by this thought! She attempted to return over the New Year in 2014, but a blizzard prevented her. She and her team were stuck in New York City for 5 days. (Yes, they were going to Haiti from Kansas City via New York!) Unfortunately Q never did make it back to Haiti, for the following year, on an icy New Years Day, 2015, she was killed in a car accident.
Quincy loved to write, draw, paint and sing. She often allowed this love for art to merge with her love for God. Sometimes as she would pray through ancient verses from the Bible she would sketch. The tactile sensation of paper and marker helped focus her heart on these powerful words and concepts. Here you'll find the contents from a journal retrieved from her car the day after the accident. They represent some of the verses she had worked on and prayed over in the last few weeks of her life.
Proceeds from these purchases are funding the Quincy Foster Memorial Scholarship at MidAmerica Nazarene University. This endowment will help fund mission trips for future nursing students at MNU.
