Photos from Poland - Aushwitz & Kracow

At the end of our mission trip, our "de-briefing" time was spent on the road and in Kracow. On the way, we tour the Aushwitz concentration camp museum. Not was a word was said by anyone in the van from the town where the camp is located to the city of Kracow. It was an unforgetable experience. Krakow was wonderful! We toured Wavel Castle and did some shopping.

Do You Have Room for One More?

During our trip to Poland, I participated in a meeting at 5N Baptist Church and a group of people interested in help the children of Dom Dziecka "Droga," by considering being a part of a pilot Foster Parenting program. I also, met with the Principal of King David School about educating these kids as well as potential playground projects involving city governments and officials. Funding opportunities through the EU are available in Poland now and good projects have a chance of being funded. Here is one of the children that is on my heart. She needs a forever home.

POP Poland Team Arrives Safely

Dear Friends,
Our team arrived safely on Friday afternoon, 4 June. We are going to be in Poznan until Monday when we will travel to the Dom Dziecka. The playground equipment will be delivered "sometime Monday morning," so we need to be there early to prepare the site. The email from KOMPAN's representative in Poland is a little confusing. They may be bringing a crew to help with the installation, but I am not sure. Regardless, we have got to have the concrete ready to go on Monday. Our team will be joined by a couple of Fulbright Scholars sent to us by FRUA. Also, our friend Shelley Adler, a missionary with AVANT, will be joining us for the build. I welcome the extra help and translators.

More later.

Mr. Playground
