96% Shot… Returning for another 4%

In March of 2012, Kyle, Brianna, JD, and Jeremy travelled to Xela, Guatemala (Bri coming from Honduras).

We shot our second film, “PAN DE VIDA: Loving the Unknown” in December of 2011. Jonathan, Delilah, and myself spent our Christmas with the feeding ministry we love in Ecuador.

Changing the Game

It’s interesting that we are born in a time and place. Changing either of these variables creates a completely different timeline for a life; Yet so many live “without purpose”.

It’s a Wonderful Ife…

Picket fence, apple cobbler, a brick fireplace; these were images of fulfillment in the minds of our team at some point in life. Watching “Andy Griffith” and “Leave it to Beaver”, I was taught what a perfect home looks like. Now, years later, I can’t help but feel that so many church-goers subconsciously look to these shows as an end-game. I know people aren’t hoping to travel back to 1954, but I do see so many living their lives with their personal comfort trumping God’s ultimate plan for them.
