Here, there, and everywhere...

April was a busy month for some of our video people. Jim and Ted spent five days in Edinburgh, Scotland, attending the Visual Story Network summit. Jim was on the planning committee for the summit, and presented "Missional Engagement – Making Story Relevant Today" with Nick Pollard of Damaris. Ted organized the sound and video at the conference, making sure all the videos played when they were supposed to, and that everything and everyone could be heard.

Immediately after that trip, Jim left for Budapest, Hungary, to shoot a GEM church planting training given by Michael Frost (from The Upstream Collective*). This footage will be uploaded and made available to churches, mission organizations, and missionaries around the world.

*The Upstream Collective is a network of missions leaders who equip and partner with churches in various ways. For more information, go here.

ZBCS updates their look

We had a chance to work with the folks at Zaporozhye Bible College and Seminary (Ukraine) again. They decided to ask us to create a new logo for their school and update their brochure and website, as well as provide files for some travel displays and banners. It was a challenge to do all of the brainstorming and editing via skype calls – and they were very specific in what they wanted – but they expressed several times that the end result was just what they were looking for!

The video team will be working on a video for them as well, so stay tuned!

UPDATE: A trip to India

In July 2010, we wrote about a project involving Love and Hope Children's Home in East India.

Praise God! All 35 children have now been sponsored through supporters in Europe and North America. But here are two other ways to bless this ministry. First, many of the 35 children have been separated from their siblings, and there are specific ways you can help reunite them. Second, Love and Hope has recently raised half of the funds (roughly $15,000) they need to build a permanent home for these kids. To find out more about how to reunite siblings or give funds toward the building costs, check out the blog we created for them. Thank you for your prayers and interest!
