a view from our porch where we shot a ton of timelapse footage!
well, our 11 days in the Moi Tribe is coming to an end. It’s hard to believe i’ve been here, literally in the middle of nowhere, and it’s over!
the experiences I’ve had here are…truly indescribable. It’s truly too much to blog about. i wouldn’t even know where to start.
thank goodness we had tons of cameras! when i get back next week, i’ll be posting a few videos online that will give you a glimpse of the journey we’ve been on. and in a few months, we’ll have a really cool short film to show the world…telling the story of God’s saving grace in the Moi Tribe & the incredible work that New Tribes Mission does here and all over the world!
it’s incredible that the missionaries got their satellite internet working JUST BEFORE we arrived. So this is the first time anyone has been able to get online consistently. That’s allowed Macon Hare (NTM Exec Producer) and me to Twitter, and for all of us to check and update Facebook. We’ve also been able to update our NTMfilms blog, which has a lot of pictures and stories from the past few days.
one thing that’s been really exciting is sharing some of my experiences with a few friends. Via the power of iChat & Skype, I’ve allowed a few friends to talk to my new Moi friends LIVE! the Moi people really get a kick out of it, and enjoy singing for my friends. One friend, Biscuet, was inspired to blog about his experience. Then Vicky Beeching was so moved by his story, that she wrote on her blog about it!
i can’t wait to post the “behind the scenes” videos. but until then, here are some pictures!

Ben Smallbone: cinematographer extraordinaire. We don’t go anywhere without him!
