Update and a few Photos from Our Summer in Oaxaca!

AILmf cooking2015-119

We have been so busy serving and photographing all over San Diego and Mexico, we have neglected updating our site. We apologize for lack of new content and we will be updating what we have been  doing in last 6 months and share more about our fun crazy summer!   For now, here are a few photos from our recent trip to Oaxaca with Adventures in Life Ministry.  We will explain more about what God did soon…

Guelaguetza Parade 2012 :: July 21st

The streets were jam packed with people who came to see the 80th Anniversary of La Guelaguetza parade, down the middle of downtown Oaxaca.

It was a long day…you can see a few more photos from the parade on our Facebook page.  You can go there by pressing HERE or by clicking link to the right.  More photos soon.

Long, fun day…time for some rest!

 


Terry in Ensendada :: This Is Who We Are

This is Terry.  He is a Marine.  He is wearing makeup.  Probably camouflage to help him blend in more and not be seen, in order to get the shot.  He appears to be printing photos…

Part of what Terry is doing, what MISSION focused is all about, is blessing folks with photos.  To often groups go on mission trips, take tons of photos, and the people they are working with and ministering to never see any of the photos, save the quick look at the screen after capture.

This is Terry in action 2 summers ago in Oaxaca, Mexico.  We were taking portraits of all the kids who came to camp so they could go home with a photo of themselves.

This was a huge blessing for us, realizing that many of these kids had never had their photo taken!  It really is a privilege to be able to do this.

As Terry is still in Ensenada, please keep him in prayer.  He will be taking portraits tomorrow of the kids at the Dios Es Amor camp.

We will be heading down to Oaxaca next week for another kids camp, where we will be taking portraits of the kids once again!

All Glory to God!


Ensenada Bound with Adventures in Life

Terry Schwartz  will be representing MISSION focused in Ensenada next week with Adventures in Life, working with Pastor Jesus Vera and his church, Dios es Amor.  Please keep Terry, Dave Miller and Pastor Jesus in prayer, along with the different groups coming to Ensenada to minister alongside AIL this coming week.

I found this old photo of Terry, in camo, and Mike Saucedo, far right.  It’s hard to find photos of photographers since they are usually behind the camera and not in front.  So the fact that I have 2 photographers in 1 photo is a bonus!

Terry has been faithfully serving God with his skills in photography for as long as I’ve known him, over 10 years.   Please keep him in prayer as uses his gifts for God’s glory this week in Ensenada.

Hopefully he will have time to post photos on our MISSION focused FB site, so keep an eye out.
