Zambia Team: Pastor Suzi Orlopp

Pastor Suzi Orlopp

Pastor Suzi enjoys crocheting, cross-stitching, CrossFit, walking her dog, spending time with family (especially her nieces), and she loves being outside. Pastor Suzi is excited to be a part of a mission trip with a goal to see a project completed. It would have been easy for us to simply send a check for the library, however, she is happy to be a part of a ministry that wants to continue to build the relationships as well as support the project.

One of my favorite childhood memories is going to the library and picking out new books to “write papers.”  I would go pick out a few books about the topic of the day (ladybugs, pineapple, horses, and Germany all are topics that come to my memory), then go home and lose myself in that topic for a few days and in the end write a “paper” about it.  Mind you “paper” most of the time was a sheet of construction paper with words written in crayon.  I can’t imagine my childhood (or years of schooling) without the library.  And now I have the opportunity to create these memories for hundreds of children in Zambia.

In August 2017, a group of 15 adults from Zion will be traveling to Zambia for two weeks to help build a library for the School of Hope at All Kids Can Learn International.  This is a continuation of the Planting our Seeds Legacy campaign, which raised the money to fund this building project.  We will be working on building the physical library, but also working with the teachers and students of the school in various different ways.  We are excited to not simply send a check to build the library but rather send our hands, feet and hearts to help as well.

We want to thank everyone who has supported the Legacy campaign to raise the fund for the library.  We now humbly ask you for your continued support by praying for the group as we prepare for the trip, pray for the local workers as they build the bricks for the library, pray for the students, teachers and staff of the school as they continue their school year with the anticipation of a new library and pray that the spirit will lead and guide us all the way.  Also if you are so inclined to help support the group by offsetting travel expenses that is welcomed as well.
