chasing light with some pretty inspiring folks

this family. they radiate joy, delight, kindness.

i’m still touched by their presence.  they are literally saving the world & bringing hope to so many.  extensive re-forestation efforts in Madagascar – they have planted 60 million trees. and they touch so many lives through a birthing and medical center they run in Madagascar. missionaries – bringing hope, sharing God’s love, & serving in tangible incredible ways. the stamp they are leaving in madagascar is going to influence and affect generations to come.  i hope you will take some time to read a little of their work & support them ::

this family of 5, is here in california for a few months gathering medical supplies, speaking at colleges & churches and raising awareness & support before heading back to madagascar in january.  alissa emailed me asking me to take their pictures, and how could i say no?!

i naively thought they would seem tired, or worn down – i mean, they live in madagascar doing a lot of hard service.  but they joyfully bounded out of the car and their joy, kindness & presence was in itself inspiring.  we may not all pick up our families and plant forests & bring medical care to birthing mothers in madagascar… but there are so many little ways we can incorporate their heart for service & God into our own. i loved seeing them. i loved re-connecting with them. we knew them when the were not a couple – just about 20 years old. and the sparkle in their eyes back then is still there.  and that too is inspiring.

Magnificent! I swear I love the little blurbs you write preceding a photo journal as much as the images themselves. I swear you’re an angel walking among us…
