Photography School

Felipe has been chosen to participate in a Photography School at a YWAM base located in Kona, Hawaii.   

 This Photography School combines two of Felipe's passions - missions and photography!   Felipe has never had any formal photography training and this school sounds perfect for him. Felipe hopes to grow in the area of photography and use what he learns to impact children living in the slums of Brazil.

We, the Matias Family, will spend a short season of three months in Hawaii (January until March of 2013) and then we will quickly visit our supporting churches and loved ones in the continental USA.  We will return to Brazil in May of 2013 to continue serving strong as missionaries with YWAM in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.   God has called us to reach out and minister to children living in at risk situations in Brazil. This is our life calling! 

God has miraculously provided the funds to buy our airfare (read about it here).  Now we are in the process of raising money to cover the Photography School tuition, the room and board fees, health insurance and other various costs for our family of four.

If you would like to help support us financially in this amazing opportunity, please check out the Photography School page. There are various ways you can contribute and every little bit helps and is a huge blessing to us. 

 Thank you for your encouragement, support and prayers as we follow Jesus on this exciting journey of faith in missions.
