This past summer I had the privilege of working alongside 12 amazing individuals with an organization called Operation Mobilization. We traveled near and far in the world's largest country, crossing many times zones to reach the lost with the love of Christ. We spend time putting together children camps, playing sports, and camping out with a bunch of teenagers in remote parts of this country. I was able to use my skills as a photographer to bless individuals and families with professional photos at no cost to them. Over the 9 weeks, I took 6,547 photos. As I continue to edit the photos even now, I am reminded of the memories and friendships I formed this summer and what a smile it brings to my face. 6 countries represented: Russia, America, Brazil, Scotland, Switzerland, and Kyrgyzstan.
I am thankful to God for allowing me to worker at a place that gave me 9 weeks off for the summer. I am thankful that God kept all of us safe and healthy throughout the duration of the trip. But most importantly, I am thankful we have a God who specializes in healing hearts, restoring the the brokenness within, and renewing hope. My friends, thank you for partnering with me this summer.
