Filming in Africa

April 10, 2013

Just a quick note to start a thread about a trip I’ll be involved with this June (2013).

My son Zach and I will be part of a 11-member leadership team going to Burundi, Africa.

We will be coming alongside an organization called Harvest for Christ Burundi, a well-respected ministry led by a highly dedicated indigenous team of Christ-followers.

For a decade Burundi suffered a civil war that claimed up to 300,000 lives.  Today the country is recovering from the genocide but has a long way to go.  It is rated as one of the poorest & most food challenged countries in the world.

Our focus will be to serve the Ba-twa of northern Burundi. The Ba-twa are a shunned people group with an average life span of 27 years.

In addition to building living shelters, we will be listening, filming, and documenting this experience for the purpose of bringing back the story for future mission teams from our home church, The Chapel in Sandusky, Ohio.

Please keep us in your prayers.  If you’d like to assist me financially, please contact me privately and we can discuss how you can become involved in this important journey. (Burundi_support)

Below is a link to a short video clip that gives insights into the back story and living conditions of this region.
