The beginning of a journey

The following 2 photographs are images I took during my time at Milligan College- Johnson City, TN. These are 2 of my favorite images, that to me represent a feeling of raw humanity. One shows the life, and experience of a man who has seen many places. Alan Shepard is a man I met at the bus station in Johnson City. The other displays feelings someone desperately wanted to get out, but remained hidden in a back alley, for only a select few to find. My inspiration is to give a voice to those that may not have it, or to at least shed light on the beauty of ordinary things we pass daily.
I'm sharing this with you while on a personal, spiritual, ministerial journey of raising support for my ministry with New Mission Systems Intl. (NMSI) God has been teaching me daily to have patience, wait for His timing and most of all, to just let go and trust in Him. God has been revealing to me how He is my provider, defender, rock, shelter in the storm and loving Father. I have had the opportunity to build relationships, meet new people, restore old relationships and share with a high school class; God's passion for using the gifts He has given us for missions. I ask you to join me as I continue on this journey and embark on many more that God has for me.
