James Poland

Yesterday, 23rd January 2011, James Poland, a chaplain working with University students n Launceston, Tasmania, died while hiking in New Zealand.

James was a man of God who worked hard to spread the gospel and train Christians to understand the bible and live it. He was a major force in establishing a conference called TLC, Tasmanian Leadership Conference, which was very well attended. It ran from around 2005 to 2009.

I praise God for James and his wife Elizabeth and their hard work for the gospel - the gospel that is life everlasting and help for the helpless. I believe that James is with God is paradise now.

I pray that God blesses Elizabeth and their 4 children with great reliance on our Lord and Father. God has chosen this hardship at this time for reasons we cannot know this side of eternity, but it must be for the good of those who love Him.

See you in heaven James.
