“My camera is my tool for evangelism” |Photography is a bridge| Should it make a difference if the person behind a camera is a Christian? My camera is a weapon and i’m part of a battle. -Justice, Equality, Freedom, Beauty, instead of ashes, restoration, and peace.
Psalm 144 “God train my hands for war, my fingers for battle”.
Each week I’ve asked the Lord to give me a word for that week.
Week one: Receive. In the prayer room He whispered ‘receive’, over and over again. I asked receive what, receive what. Later in the week we had a prayer session for Philip Lin my DTS school leader. Long story short he came into class with crutches (the past 10 years he’s had multiple surgery on his right knee). We all joined together as a class, and prayed for a healing. Joy a women of God in my class, prayed out she also struggled with having bad knees. I felt the Holy Spirit (physically tugging from the inside) telling me to confess I have bad knees as well. I felt released once I did..The Lord did a miracle on my Knees, I know he transformed my knees. HE HEALED ME! I know for a fact that HE strengthen my knees. After standing up and praying again for Philip I felt a numbness and shooting jolt go up my left leg. GO GOD! I know He wants me strong, and healthy for all the adventures and journeys He has for me. Lord you are the ultimate healer. To God be all the GLORY!
1 Peter 2:24: He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.
Week two: Communicate. The prayer room is what I look forward to each week. It’s were I can feel Jesus and meet with Him face to face. He gave me the word communicate. He showed me my destiny, my ancestry. A flash of Morse code came to mind (the electricity running in my skull side to side, and front to back) making a Cross. He showed me the legacy that must live on! Did I mention how many goosebumps I had?! This week I’ve been needing to update to you all on how my time here in Kona has been amazing! So like above he told me to sit down and communicate with you guys.. aka my blog! Now that it is the weekend.. I have time to sit down and dedicate my time to you all!
| “This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it SHINE!” | Who knew this song I sang as a child, would now imply to my life. Ask yourself.. What kind of light are you. A flash light, a light bulb, a strobe light, or a better yet a light house. How powerful is your light?
-The Lord wants to use your light, no matter how strong or how dim. My timing here in Kona, couldn’t be better. The Lord has placed me here for a purpose, and a much greater plan. He is good.. ALWAYS.

Today is my last full day in my little town of Medford, Oregon. Will I miss it? Of course, all my family and friends are here. On the sunny side I’ll be where my heart has longed to be. To be apart of being the hands and feet of Jesus, and I’m SO excited to see how He uses me. But..
Today marks a bittersweet day. I know I’m going to miss out on some key life milestones. The birth of my Niece, and one of my best friends wedding. Will I be back? Of Course! In order for me to Grow and to Love unconditionally. I know this is the path God has placed for me. I think goodbyes are sad and I’d much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure! I love you all. I’ll keep
this blog up to date!
Isaiah 64:7 “You are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter: we are all the work of your hand ”.
And I sit here in my warm bed, I’m pondering and thinking about what’s ahead in the future. Now the Lord tells us to not worry, but my heart is worried for a loved one. The world tell us we are to define ourself, or worse yet we some how believe others can label us. Trick us into thinking something we aren’t. Why is it easy to label others? Does it makes us feel better about ourself. Maybe for a short amount of time. In this day and age we are living in the generation to ‘express’ yourself. Another 70’s movement.. Maybe.
What I’m trying to say is.. Don’t let the world get to you. Satan is alive and well In this world. But do you know our God is Greater our God is BIGGER than any problem. He knows the emptiness and degrading sin is, but yet He took His life for my sin. Wow.. Powerful.. How can I ever thank you?! By letting You use me. Today marks 10 now 9 days before I leave on my great and grand adventure. I know the Lord is using me to be a prayer warrior, and to show Gods grace by loving one another. Today has taught me: to love means to keep NO record of wrong. (1 Corinthian’s 13)
Let the Lord shape our life, most of the time I get molded out of place. But when I give my trust, hope, and faith in Him. He’ll hand craft my beautiful journey called life.
