Paul and Ann Rachel Hamelryck
It has been a dream of Paul’s to be a missionary in Africa like his grandfather was in 1940. In July 2009 his dream was realized as he and Ann Rachel, along with their 10 children — Gabrielle (19), Page (17), Harrison (16), Cole (14), Patrick (13), Nola (11), Shane (10), Martin (8), Izzy (7), and Chipi (5) — moved to Zambia. They initially came with All Kids Can Learn International to work and live at an orphanage. When that assignment was completed, AKCLI has allowed them to partner with GMI in building Grace Village, a training center for the disabled in Kabwe. Most of Paul’s career life has been in owning his own business in construction and architecture. In 1994 he went to seminary to better prepare himself for the mission field. He says it is quite easy to look back over his life at his successes and failures and see how God has prepared their family for this exact place and period in their life. They are so excited to be serving in Kabwe in so many different areas — business, construction, design work, counseling, and preaching. To follow them on facebook, click here.

After completing a year-long internship at ECHO in April 2010, Joy applied to Grace Ministries International to work in Zambia with the orphan schools in the area of agriculture; combining interests in missions, agriculture, and orphan care. She has served the local church and missionaries there by working with teachers to incorporate agriculture education into the curriculum, as well as with students to start school gardens and teach basic vegetable gardening.
