Kenya and Documentaries

So I go to Bethany College of Missions, and part of the schooling to get a BA is to go on a 16 month internship. We had four choices and I went through all of them thinking and wanting to go to them and Kenya was last on my list but it was first on God's. Why I want to go to Kenya and why I feel called is, to work with orphans and orphanages, I myself was adopted and had some bad things happen in my foster homes, and I just feel that I can connect better to orphans and they can relate better to me, and then I can share God's love with them. So that's the plan so far, and the other night I watched Invisable Children (kids in Uganda, that are kidnapped and forced to fight for the LRA) crazy documentary but very good, I encourage you to watch it. But after that I just really got a passion to make documentaries and like it says in Job 29:15-16 "I was eyes to the blind and feet to the lame. I was a father to the needy, and I searched out the cause of him whom I did not know." I feel that the blind is the world, they are blind to what is going in the world, the hurt and evil. And the lame are the orphans and the people getting hurt, I want to be the feet to the lame and carry out their story and let people know so they aren't invisible, and open the eyes of the world so they know and they can help. I want to search out the cause of him whom I did not know, and come to know him and help him, I want to love on the un-loved and show the orphans that they have a father, a Holy and Perfect one, who will never leave them and who will always be there. He will always love us, even if we aren't loving Him at the moment. So that's what God is doing right now, I would love prayer for Kenya and just getting the money to go and all that comes with it like protection and health, and also we want to try and do our first documentary in Kenya on internship but we need a camcorder and also a Mac for video editing and stuff, my friend Noel who will be helping me was blessed with a super nice Canon camera, so he will be the picture taker and stuff and hopefully we can get a website up and post pics and our videos so they can impact and educate people. But I know that if Kenya and making documentaries are from God for me to do then He will provide all that is needed to do these things. But we still need prayers and if you can help in any way that would be awesome too, like info on camcorders and mac's, support, experience and advice, whatever you feel could help and whatever God leads you to offer.

  1. I don't know you, and this is kind of weird, in what I am going to say, because this is soooo out of my character to do this. But this is how I found your website. I was on facebook, and typed in Haiti. And your name was one of those that popped up. So, I clicked and found your website on here. I am from Orange County as well, and missions is where God has called me. I am on a 2 year plan right now to be a full time missionary in Haiti.

    Anyway, as I am reading this blog entry I was excited to hear all that you wrote about Kenya. I went to Kenya, into the slums a year and a half ago for a short term missions trip. It was amazing, and showed me that the urban poor was where God was leading me, but not sure where in the world yet. My best friend is a missionary in Haiti with an organization, and I just got back from there, and it was the place, so that is where I am headed. I just thought that maybe it might be something you can look into. The organization is North West Haiti Christian Mission. you can see more information on their website at

    Anyway, I know this is very random, but I felt the urge to share it with you. I hope God leads you to where you want to go, and blesses you richly. Have a GREAT week!
