tomorrow morning we will be boarding a plane and flying 12.45 hours to a continent that we dearly love. yet never have been to.
If you would have told me even 2 years ago that my life would be consumed with God’s heart for the orphan, the widow, the poor & the oppressed and that we’d be spending two weeks loving on orphans in Africa I would have called you crazy. This new reality of my life excites me and scares me. I never know what’s around the corner or what God has in store. I just want to be obedient to what He’s calling me to. I have found that there is so much JOY in being obedient.
I can’t wait to tell you stories through photographs of the children we meet and love on. I hope they move you to pray for them, to give to them, or to go to them. I don’t just want to show them to you so you think I’m an awesome photographer. I want them to move you to ACTION. I want to be a woman of action and I think God has put me in this place to give people opportunities to give, go, or pray. And I want to use my gifts for GOOD!
I am really excited to tell you about a (going to be!) non profit that Stephen & I going to be instrumental in starting up called The Lightwriters
. Check it out – site not up yet, but you can put in your email to get info when it starts: http://www.thelightwriters.org/
It’s all about people using their gifts for good. A collective of photographers, film makers and writers who want to use their talents for good.
A movement intended to encourage God’s people to use their gifts to glorify Yahweh.
I think it’s going to be wicked cool and we are pumped to be a part of it with our good friend, Dustin Bryson
Check out this video that they did of us:
We will be photographing/videoing while we are there for The Lightwriters! Excited to see what could come from this awesome opportunity. Get involved!
you thought you were through with me, but you really aren’t yet. writing really is therapy for me and today I obviously can’t get enough. I will be co-blogging with my good friend, Chloe. We’ll be writing/posting together while I am excited about! Her blog is http://www.belovedadventurer.blogspot.com/
Ok still wanted to post our itinerary & stories from today so maybe I’ll do that tonight….
LOVE to you all!
