My husband, Derrick, along with our son, River, and I are fulfilling a deeply anticipated dream of ours to spend time with Christians in different cultures around the globe, filming the stories of humans along the way. We are departing at the end of this month for Nairobi, Kenya, followed by Haiti, Mexico and India, all for two months each. You can find more details about our trip, including a video from us and blogs describing each place we are visiting, on our travel blog: WildBridgeTravels.com
We have been holding this dream in our hearts for years now, so the fact that the time has finally come couldn't thrill us more! We have been raising funds through our network of communities as well as saving income, in addition to trading our video services for housing with the different organizations we are visiting to cover the costs of this incredible opportunity. It's been amazing to see God provide and even more exciting to have been able to enjoy so many wonderful conversations and receive affirmation from many people we have talked with. As the time is drawing near, we currently have raised about 50% of the support we need.
Although we are prepared to step forward in faith, believing that because we have what we need for now we may not see the rest until we need it once we are already overseas filming, we are also exploring everything that is in our hands to make this trip possible. One of those things in my hands is my artwork. The large majority of my career as a painter has been comprised of commissioned pieces, but this past year I began creating paintings, mostly scenery, of my own interest. I have a few for sale currently on my Etsy shop and I would love to be able to use 100% of any sales towards funding our dream documentary trip this year. If you or someone you know is interested in scenery paintings, we'd love for you to take a look at my shop on Etsy.
I still plan to paint overseas and am looking forward to what that might look like. I am so grateful for the love and encouragement I have received from dear friends concerning my art. I invite you to join in our journey by following our updates at WildBridgeTravels.com. From the depths of my heart, thank you for your love & support!
