FOCUS Prison Ministries

On Sunday a group of families from our church known as the Third Sunday Ministry group got together to fellowship and paint some rooms at the FOCUS Prison Minsitries home in downtown Knoxville, TN. Half of our group went to Nashville to witness and fellowship with the Kurd population and the rest of us were painting and doing some in-home repairs and maintenance. We met 6 men, who at some point in their lives, made some bad decisions and spent time in prison. Some of them while IN prison, earned a college education and many important life skills. ALL of them made the most IMPORTANT decision of their life by accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior! AMEN! It was interesting talking to one of them, learning about their daily schedule in prison. They have 2 men to a cell and each have their own shelf for their personal belongings…shoes, clothes, toiletries and a book or personal album. No personal pictures may be hung at any time. They all work for $.17 an hour! Yes I said 17 CENTS! No more than $5 a WEEK or $20 a month! WOW. It was awesome meeting these guys and seeing what god has been doing in their lives and continues to do. Check out the pics by clicking anywhere is this passage. 🙂

Here comes the Bride…

I attended the Bridal Expo at the Knoxville Expo Center on Sunday, Feb 27, 2011 with my awesome instructor John Edwin May. We stayed for nearly 4 hours and shot numerous “fashion shows” facing the most challenging lighting and super speedy brides. Haha. Guess they were in a hurry for the honeymoon? Out of nearly 600 images… I may have 50 decent ones? I’m also my worse critque too though. It was great networking above all and I’m looking forward to my future wedding shoots. Stay tuned for photos…

“Beauty in the Waters…”

Yesterday at First Baptist Concord church on Kingston pike, nearly 30 new believers in Christ were baptized. On this amazing “Not Ashamed” Sunday. New lives were born and people were saved! Amen! God is GOOD, ALL the time! There is something very beautiful about witnessing a “Believer’s Baptism” especially when the baptizer is a father having the honors of baptizing their own young son or daughter. Man, how the tears will flow! EVERY Sunday Service at FBC is AMAZING and POWERFULLY moving! If you don’t belong to a church home now, I strongly encourage you to check out First Baptist Concord. Amazing musical talent as well!  I carefully managed to  juggle playing cello and taking pictures at the same time while trying to focus my eyes through all the tears that fell like a waterfall. WOW! Editing some pics now…stay tuned for some visual candy. 🙂

God bless!
