I truly love meeting new people and photographing their lives. My life and heart are fully devoted to sharing with others the hope that is found within Jesus. The opportunity to work with families, providing them with a free family portrait, is truly a dream for me. I'll also be bringing 35mm cameras for the kids of the neighborhood to take and explore their surroundings. Afterwards, we'll get the film developed- I'm really excited to see what the kids photograph! My time there will be working with the Oasis Center for two weeks and I need help raising the funds to cover two of the biggest expenses: the flight ($1500) and a place to stay ($400). The Oasis Center
is located in downtown Madrid, Spain in one of the poorest, and most culturally diverse neighborhoods in all of Spain.
This cultural center helps immigrants to integrate into Spanish society by improving their skills to find employment. When I meet my goal, any extra money will go straight to the Oasis Center- right back into the community. I'm praying for lifelong friendships to come out of this trip, where I can do life with these individuals and speak truth into their hearts.
