Our International Family

Haensel Family

Keith & Melanie Haensel – Niamey, Niger

In 2018, after much prayer, Keith and Melanie both heard God’s call for them to begin overseas work. The preparation process with The Christian and Missionary Alliance was encouraging, and through that process they began to sense that Niger may be where God was leading them. At first, they prayed that God would either provide somewhere else or change their hearts about the possibility of going to Niger. God slowly, but miraculously, built not only a willingness, but a great excitement to go to Niger.

Darren and Minako Polischuk

Darren & Minako Polischuk – Siem Reap, Cambodia

When Darren & Minako founded Work of Your Hand they had a vision of a just world where the poor have dignified work and whose communities are transformed by the love of Jesus. They moved from Calgary to Siem Reap to start working towards that vision. They started Clothed In Dignity and Made For This Fabrication. Both are vocational training schools where marketable skills are taught, giving the people of the area the opportunity to provide for themselves and their families in a dignified way.
