At the close of our 6th year I find myself reflecting on all that God has accomplished through Poetice since our humble beginnings. My story with Poetice began in a very sophisticated working environment. My bedroom, an Ikea desk, and a laptop. And then God blessed me with… a chair! We’ve come a long way and I’m humbled to share some of what has been accomplished since our inception in 2009.
There have been massive swings of ups and downs, and many times I just feel flat out sideways. Days filled with uncertainty about the future. Days when the dream is almost palpable. But one thing is for sure. I have never been alone.
The people we seek to serve are just as much a part of our own personal transformation as we are a part of theirs and it’s humbling and inspiring to see what happens when stories of the poor and non-poor converge. And our partners daily remind me that the work of Poetice is ultimately in the hands a God who so loves the whole world.
Transformation is happening all around and hopefully you will see here that it’s been another year where God’s Kingdom has been made more visible in Southern Africa as it is in heaven.
Grace & Peace,
