Back on Base |July 27-August 6th|

Let the gospel change society
— Igor Milhomens

10 or more days we have been on base. We have no idea what or which village we will attend next. Our time here we’ve been working on a overload of media we have to edit and sort through. Last weekend was ‘Kings Kids’ a program dedicated for kids. To learn more about God and to share what they’ve learned to there parents. My team and I got to capture the event, and more importantly hang out with the kids #bondingtime. 

This is the school bus we took each day with the kiddos. Filled with laughter and smiles at the end of each day. Oh I miss these moments.

At first it was a struggle trying to be creative with our photos in the dying heat. But in the end of the day. I pushed myself and got some awesome photos. Our times we’ve had as a team has been a treasure. Each day one of us teaches a devotion to one another out on the dock. It’s times like this I’ll remember forever, learning together and endless conversations about the bible, personal struggles, and life in general. Being away from home has hit me.. I miss my family and friends and with being away from my soon to be niece is difficult. I knew in doing this I would miss out on major events back at home. Would I change anything? NO way being in God’s will and supervision is calming and peaceful. 

This is Edinam. A boy who fund raised to attend kings-kids camp. Fun spirited and what a joyful boy he is. God is doing amazing things in Edinam's life. What an artist he is!  

God has been teaching me things. Teaching me to trust Him to be brave with the Word. I know what I’m doing now is going to make an impact for the rest of my l i f e. In how I love people, how to react in difficult situations in life, and what it looks like to fully trust God. I wish I could take you all to Brasil.. the jungle once again is amazing. The sounds, view, and the ultra vibrant colors. wow.. It’s worth the dying heat to experience God’s country. 

This is the view from our dock. Many meetings, hammock sessions, and of course swimming off this dock. The tree's you see here are Acai trees. Or Acai palm trees I like to call!

|195th anniversary of the first church Mokuaikaua Church in Kailua-Kona|

The first weekend arriving to Kona. We as in my fellow classmates in ‘PhotogenX’ had the privilege to photograph a reenactment of the first missionaries to set foot on the Big Island of Hawai'i. This photo shoot wasn’t required if you weren’t interested in tying out for the advanced team. Me being a pusher, decided to give it a try! What a cool event to capture the spirit and beauty of the Hawaiian culture. Enjoy!
