The start of the week M O N D A Y. Happens to be media day! For our first adventure for the (advanced team) we ended up going to Greenwell Farms Inc the original and one of the first coffee farms on the Big Island. Our task was to capture ‘the life of a coffee bean’. It ended up raining on us, but the memories we made were prime. Rain or shine we had fun, and captured some fun moments.
After the coffee farm we headed over to the ‘Painted Church’ The creative juices flowed. So much color and detail in such a small church.
If you have been tracking with me. Each week God has given we a word. For week 3 He gave me to bear fruit. To bear new and clean fruit for His glory. Also a word of Unravel. Later to find out week 3 was ‘pure heart’ the authors of the book Tom & Donna Cole. Came in and spoke on the father/mother and any wombs in my past. After the week ended I felt ‘new’. The sins that haunted me I buried at the cross. For bearing new fruit the Lord told me I’m pure, new, and His forever. From this I’m a new Heather Morse. Completely and 100% in love with Jesus.
As soon as I walked into the classroom, I knew I was home. The white board quoted “Paint with LIGHT’ which elaborated into being the LIGHT of the WORLD. (My favorite verse!!!) For the first week of DTS we had Susi Childers the founder of PhotogenX ministry back in 2005. What an amazing Women she is, We couldn’t have had a better speaker for the first week. SO Inspiring, courageous, adventurous, thrilling, and beyond imaginable. It’s every photographers DREAM! Here’s a short overview of the week. (I will upload podcasts from her testimony, You’ll want to hear it!) She talked about how our cameras are an easy ministry tool. Evangelism is all about relationships, how does my DSLR help? Its an easy conversation starter, which leads into sharing the good news! Each day has been testing me, and shaping me into a Women after God’s heart. The more I put in and press on, the more God will bless me. HE is forever faithful and oh so good.
Isaiah 45: 3 “I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places”.
Being a ‘voice for the voiceless’ a vision and dream Susi had from God. To be a voice for the men and women around the world who are trapped. “When people are suffering and dying the world does not care, we need to stand up and be the light!” -Susi Childers

Who or what would I like to photograph? I had to pray and seek the Lord for help. I had a vision of a group of children, and me at knee level hugging child after child. The fullness I felt in that moment was Jesus’s love. Powerful.. Another vision I had was me standing on top of a hill. My surroundings were very green and tropical…(*hint* my outreach location pin points my vision!) How faithful My Lord is, I don’t deserve His love and grace… I encourage YOU to DREAM BIG, Nothing is to big for our Lord. Ask and you will receive.

Couldn’t be happier// this is how I’m ending my weekend. Watching vine videos with my pal Jo and eating a giant bowl of Apple Jacks cereal. #yummy
| “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.
