Counting Down!!!

Poelman Family HANDS Team:

Wow! Cannot believe how quick this is coming up! In eleven more days we will be embarking on a lifechanging trip...

We are so excited to be doing this..knowing that we are taking part in doing what God has created us for..LOVE! We are excited to meet the people, to see the country and to commune and worship together with our brothers and sisters in Zambia.

To be able to be a part of helping to build a school for the community so that the children are enabled to have a future is an honor. That we are doing this in the memory of Kyndra makes it even more special for us...she had such a passion for children and knowing that a difference is being made in their lives would please her so much!

We are thankful to God that this opportunity came up, and know that He had His hand in making this all work, no such thing as coincidences!!

We had a great fundraiser at our church with a traditional stamppot supper and a silent auction, along with an offering one Sunday, and proceeds from an annual fair that is held every year, and are so humbled by the generosity of our church family and community!

Last minute getting ready and we will be off!! Next blog will hopefully be then....

SOOOOO EXCITING!! I know we don't know each other (well) Michelle but I'm just thrilled that you would "invite me" along to experience your trip via this blog! I look forward to getting updates and hearing about how the Lord is using you to love on and bless the least of these! God bless you and the team as you travel and minister.
