One of the things that we needed was a good visual presentation. Bob went out one afternoon and filmed some conversations at various artist homes. When he came home he was discouraged because of the bad sound quality and I had decided it might be easiest to simply do a power point and forget the video aspect.
I felt prompted to write to our pastor's wife, Tish and ask if she knew of anyone who could help us. She recommended that I contact Heartify. She gave a name and I wrote a girl on Facebook asking if they would help us. We met ethe shop after a long ship day.; we were hot and tired but as we began to unfold some of our story I could see their eyes glisten with tears and I knew they were listening not only with their ears but with their hearts. They wanted to tell the story of what the Lord has done through MiR. We were ridiculously overjoyed and relieved!!! I personally felt like a load had been lifted off our shoulders.

Basically, they followed us around the island: at the shop with our artist families and tourists milling around, they captured us on various porches listening and loving and praying, at schools bringing supplies or Tom's shoes, in our home sharing His word with the artists, in Coxen Hole buying a fridge that one of our artist families had saved for. They just filmed life on the island for us!!! Ana came to a RoatanAlive Women's event and she was there filming when I was able to pray with a lady who accepted Christ as her Saviour!!! You can't plan that stuff.... it is all Him!! We look forward to seeing the finished work and we will share it with you later!

We are grateful for the chance to have the opportunity to have them invest so much time into telling our story and not just telling it from the an information vantage point but from the heart.
YOUR HEART HAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE REASON WHY WE GOT INTO THIS. WE WANT TO TELL YOUR STORY AND WE WANT TO MAKE YOU FEEL SOMETHING. ANYTHING THAT GETS YOUR HEART RACING IS IMPERATIVE TO CAPTURE. WE BREATHE FOR THOSE MOMENTS. - Hearify.
