“For you created my inmost being: you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
I am in awe of God’s creation. I used to be a biology teacher, and the more I learned about and studied life, the more I grew in the awareness of God’s awesome design of every living creature. He knit us together, down to the intricate details of the proteins that make our bodies work, and the DNA that codes for those proteins. He made each of our lives with His loving hands, and for that, I am in constant thankfulness!
It’s been one and half years since I started this little photography blog. I started out just wanting to be able to share pictures of the life I was privileged to capture in photographs of the sweet little friends and family God put in my life. It has grown, though, to be much more than just a place to share newborn and baby photos. I believe God has asked me to use my photography business to help support the work He is doing for the least of these in our world. So that’s what this blog and photography business is now “about”…getting to sponsor a child in the most forsaken place on Earth through the organization Make Way Partners (www.makewaypartners.org)
Make Way Partners is an organization that works in the places where women and children are most at risk for human trafficking, and where there is little to no other help available because it is considered either “too” dangerous, “too” expensive, or “too” remote for most people to go. Most of Make Way Partners efforts are focused in Sudan and South Sudan, where they support three orphanages that are in the middle of the war-ravaged countries.
The child that this photography business supports is from the orphanage “Our Father’s Cleft” in the Nuba Mountains in Sudan. It is a complete care sponsorship, providing for food and water, shelter and security, education, Christ-centered discipleship, medical care, and trauma and healing support.
I am so excited to get to be a part of what God is doing by using this little newborn and baby photography business to help sponsor our child in the Nuba Mountains. Thank you for stopping by to check things out. I hope that you also can be a part of what God is doing for the least of these in Sudan.
