A Light In the Darkness

A Light In the Darkness Episode 8 - Williamson Sintyl

August 5, 2020

As a survivor from the earthquake in Haiti in 2010, Williamson takes advantage of every moment, experience, and opportunity he is given in life. Those 27 hours under the rubble caused him to search for God, and he joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 6 months later. He served a mission in his own country, and then moved to the U.S. to study in 2015. While studying here he also met the love of his life. He has shared his near death experience in many schools and functions all over Utah and Haiti. His passion is to empower youth all over the world to believe in themselves.  Through a lot of hard work - he now owns his own small business, and is the founder of a non-profit organization ARISE Project for Humanity. Arise empowers youth in Haïti to believe in themselves and change their own community. He continues to take trips back to his home country with his organization. They are now building the first Mentoring Center in the Southern Haiti.  Williamson is also a husband and father of 3 and lives with his family in Bountiful, Utah. In all of life's challenges, Williamson searches for a way to remain positive and hopeful.
