Grami Gives!!

We have the most amazing family! So many have been so supportive of our trip! We are so blessed to know that so many will be praying for us. My mom came over the other day to give us a book she had made with all sorts of pictures from Rwanda, telling the kids how proud she was of them for going on this trip and how she would be praying for us throughout this journey! Then she gave the kids a check to put towards our fund for Rwanda! WOW! We were blown away! She has always been SO generous and once again she made a huge sacrifice for our family. The money is wonderful and will help us reach our goal that much faster, but her heart is what is the most amazing part of this story. Our kids will probably not remember how much she gave but they will remember what a servant she is. She is constantly giving her time to us and they know that at a moments notice Grami is there for them! We love you Grami and we are SO thankful for you!

Here We Go!

Well the Polk family finally has a blog! And it's for a great reason- We are going to AFRICA! We are so excited! We are going on a 2 week mission trip to Kilgali, Rwanda on December 26, 2010. We've had a heart for Africa for some time now and kept trying to figure out exactly what we were supposed to do, and right now we feel called to go and serve! We are going to be teaching the local children about Jesus and helping to put on a sports camp for them as well. We also plan to visit an orphanage and do some prayer walks in several towns of Rwanda. We wanted to keep everyone updated on our trip and journal all of the adventures we have while there! We would love it if we could get your prayers for this trip. We hope to be a blessing to the missionaries in Rwanda as well as the children we will be in contact with everyday. We know this will be a life-changing trip for us and our 3 kids and we just can't wait!
