It hasn’t really been intentional. We’ve just found ourselves lost in the sea of work, holidays, dogs, family, more work, travel for work and volunteer activities. BUT! We are still here and we are still doing stuff for Kaleidoscope.
So, yesterday, Scott and I were actually able to finish up filming all of the various ministry aspects of Remember the Poor. Kinda crazy, I know. I mean, it was only our third day in the country! But, because we are working with some stellar contacts and even better local transportation people, we surely did manage to get everything covered in three days!
We’ve been in Cambodia for two days now. And, let me tell you, it has been a full two days!
Yesterday, after getting all of our stuff dropped off at the Guesthouse we’re staying at and taking a short rest, we started our project by getting footage of a man named Eel (pronounced Ee-ooh). He lives in Phnom Penh and spends his days pulling a big cart behind him that he uses to carry the recyclable or resellable (is that a word?) thrown out items from the garbage along the streets of the city.
Project 7 Billion is a nonprofit ministry run by prophetic artist, Latimer Bowen in Abilene, Texas. Latimer is using her art, specifically the piece, “The Lion of Judah,” to share the gospel with the entire world. All 7 Billion of us. God told Latimer she was to take that piece to the whole world and tell them that He loves them. And that is exactly what she’s doing through Project 7 Billion.
At the end of October, we’ll be heading to Phnom Penh, Cambodia to partner with Greg and Jane Drebes. Greg and Jane Drebes have been living in Cambodia for over 8 years doing a variety of ministries, most of which focus on spreading the Gospel to and helping the poor of Phnom Penh. We’ll be blogging the journey every step of the way while we’re in Cambodia as long as we can find solid-enough internet to upload the blogs!
The seed for Kaleidoscope Media Ministries was planted in 2011 while Brandi Jo was on a mission trip.
This particular mission trip took its participants to 11 different countries in 11 months. Over the course of this trip, Brandi Jo came into contact with lots of different people doing lots of different things for the Kingdom of the Lord. These missionaries, nonprofits and organizations had visions to do more – good and necessary things – in their respective countries and communities, but many of them did not have the resources (physical, financial, technical, etc) needed to pursue those visions. This lack of resources was often for one simple reason: the people with those resources simply did not know about them.
Ok, so this post is actually a few months overdue, but better late than never, right?!
We exist! We exist! We exist!
Kaleidoscope Media Ministries, Inc. was incorporated in Texas in November 2014! Aaaaannnndd, earlier this month, we received our Determination Letter from the IRS stating that we are officially a 501(c)(3) organization!
