Video training in Belarus

In early May, GemStone Media was invited to Belarus to train nine Christians from a local church in the art of "digital story telling."

Video producers, Jim and Ted, led the weekend seminar in Brest, Belarus.

After a day of practical instruction, the group was asked to create a short video with the theme "hope." The challenge was given to shoot the video and edit it completely in less than 30 hours... which they did! A short video, "Hope: I am not alone" is the finished product. Over time, the Belarusian fellowship plans to create more short videos that will draw people to consider Jesus and the hope that He gives.

It was a privilege to share our video knowledge and skills with these new friends!

Meet Cassia!

Cassia graduated from high school in June 2009, and has been interning with GemStone Media's video department since October. She has helped us with several video projects and has recently been spearheading a promotional video for a local art ministry. Cassia hopes to finish it before leaving Germany for college in Canada this summer. We will miss her invaluable assistance, servant heart, and cheerful attitude!

May God bless your future, Cassia!
