Wrapping up "Moving On" in Jinja....

We have been busy working on finishing up the LGH shot list. We have a few interviews, and b-roll shots that still need to be captured before we leave Jinja on Tuesday morning to begin an 8 hour drive to a small town in Western, Uganda called Bundibugyo. I am so sad to say that our friend and character in the "Moving On" documentary, Charles, passed away two days ago. We were so blessed to be able to say goodbye to him. Nic talked with him about his love for the Lord and he even sang a song with him. It was so beautiful. Life is so fragile, here in Uganda, and at home in America. We just never know when it will be our time to leave. I am reminded to live each day with vivor and excitement for the single day! The people we share our lives with are the most important! Thank you so much for all of your prayers! We are really getting homesick and missing all of you!
Please continue to pray as we begin an entirely new project. We are going to be telling the powerful story of Bishop Hannington Behumeka. He is Bishop over 38 churches in the Charismatic Episcopal Church (CEC.) When rebels attacked his town of Bundibugyo in 2001, he along with 80,000 others fled to displacement camps where they lived for over 2 years. Hannington inspired his people to be generous during a time when they had nothing. He had a heart for the orphans who had lost their
parents and began to organize programs where blankets and clothes were given to the children. This idea of stewardship and generosity spread throughout the people and became the foundation upon which his whole town was rebuilt!!!!
This video piece will be used as an introduction at the Lausanne Conference ( year in South Africa. The conference, started by Billy Graham, is a gathering of all the international Christian leaders all over the world! It is anticipated that over 4,000 leaders from 200 countries will attend onsite in Cape Town. Thousands of other leaders are expected to participate virtually – online and through other digital technology. It is quite an honor to be working on this!!! We pray that the Lord uses it to speak to people's hearts! We will keep you posted as much as we can!!! Love you and miss you all!
