Videographer, Editor, Graphic Designer, Animator
My Mission Vision
My mission is to utilize every tool, skill, and resource to help in the expansion of the Gospel and God's Kingdom.
"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."
AmazonVida exists to make disciples and develop leaders,
launching them to plant churches and restore communities
in the Amazon and throughout the world.
This is the official mission statement of AmazonVida. My mission, however is a little different from the rest of the ministry. As mentioned in my mission vision above, I utilize the resources and skills I have to help the ministry. My main role is Communications Manager & Videographer, which means that I spend most of my year in the U.S. to help raise awareness and raise funds for the ministry so that they can continue to do the work that started over 60 years ago.
I travel down to the Amazon 3 times throughout the year, and invest 3-4 weeks visiting river missionaries and various villages that our ministry reaches out to, and spend some time with Pastor Elmer (the head director of our ministry) and his church in Parintins. While in these places, I am capturing these experiences with video and still photos, and bringing back the new footage to the U.S. so that I can then use it to share with the rest of the world.
While in the U.S., I create video and print material for our marketing team and social media. It varies throughout the year from highlight videos and testimonials, to business cards and banners. I can tell you, without a doubt, that I definitely have enough to keep me busy for a while! All the material I create is, ultimately, used for reaching out to potential church partners and individual supporters, so that when our team reaches out to someone, we aren't just telling you about the Amazon, we can SHOW you!
