Filming in Niger

July 20, 2012

Over the years, Salt + Light has travelled as far away as Europe and Australia to bring you faith-filled stories in the Universal Church. As of Sunday, Salt + Light will be adding one more continent to our list of places traveled: Africa!
Our very own David LeRoss, Kris Dmytrenko and I will be travelling to Niger in Africa this coming Sunday to work on a documentary about the on-going food crisis in west Africa. We know that this will be a life-altering experience for us.
Please pray for our team and for the people of Niger, most especially. Through our words and actions, we hope to be "salt for the earth" and "light for the world" in the many people that we will meet.
When time and opportunity allows us, Kris and I will post videos and featured articles on our blog, and provide you with photos and updates via Facebook and Twitter.
Stay tuned!
