Next Saturday will be a full-circle moment for me as I teach a workshop at Vision Conference: a mission’s conference for middle-school and high-school students in Lancaster, PA. I'll be speaking about photography + missions, explaining how to capture & convey meaningful snapshots/stories.
I attended this conference as a student, and I never dreamed I would one day be TEACHING at Vision. I can specifically remember listening to the main speaker 10 years ago, as he shared stories from the nation of Haiti. At that moment, in my heart of hearts, I knew without a doubt that I would travel to Haiti one day. Sure enough, years later I captured the beautiful people of Haiti for a small organization in PA.
Vision Conference really sparked my interest in missions (which lead me to Africa!), and I can only hope that my workshop encourages teens to use their talents and be part of the global picture.
If you live in Lancaster, please encourage the teens in your life to attend this awesome day. Check out the other speakers here. I highly recommend hearing Peter Greer, President of Hope International, speak about self-sustainability overseas.
