This morning I’m writing from a hotel room in Minneapolis, where I am doing training with 28 other people who will soon be headed out to their respective missionary jobs. I think there are 7 or 8 countries as destinations for people, including a few who will remain in ministry here in the States. It’s so encouraging to meet other people who are in the same stage of their journey as I am!
Just last week I finished a short video speaking into the “why” of the work I am stepping into. Why is good media needed for ministries? What is this passion all about? It was both delightful and awkward to make a video about myself! That thing about hearing your own voice? Yes, I had to hear mine for hours as I edited, and then every time I show this to someone or at a church, I get to hear it again. However, it was so affirming to hear people testify of the effectiveness of visual storytelling. I would be honored if you took a moment to watch this morning.
