For A Mission Photography is named as such because all the profit from my sessions goes towards different global and local missional efforts, and also because I love taking photos of families! I don’t have set prices, and trust that those who hire me will give what they can so we can give more to The Mission!
What is The Mission? The Mission is given by Jesus in Matthew 28, that we would “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:18).” The Mission is all about Jesus and his rescue plan for the world! Therefore, not only do the funds support The Mission, but my hope is that even the photography itself would be a vehicle for loving people the way Jesus has loved me.
A few of the missions that receive funds from FAM Photography:
- The Andre Family. These wonderful friends of ours live in Nairobi, Kenya working with African Inland Mission (AIM). Their On Field Media team document what AIM is doing to reach unreached people groups with the Gospel all over Africa.
- The Jons Family. Another lovely family we are close with, whose work is amazing, but unfortunately we can’t share online about their ventures. But trust me, it’s awesome.
- General Giving. A portion of the money that comes in through FAM is used for spontaneous acts of giving. There are so many situations that come up throughout the week that God calls us to give towards. This may be being a single mom’s coffee, treating a homeless man to a hot meal, covering the cost of new tires for a family in need, etc…
