Sneak peek at prayer card photo

Our church was sweet enough to offer to make prayer cards for us to hand out. Britt Dillard who is an incredible man of God and servant took some great pictures of us. Here is our favorite. Much thanks to a loving church family!

P.S. They should be ready by the Global MPACT Celebration if not sooner.

New Banner for the Blog!

So, I finally got some pictures of us on here. Needless to say it is quite a feat getting eight smiling faces in a picture. I found a couple of neat pieces of software to do "green screen." They are both free. One is the program PAINT.net (not to be confused with the normal Windows Paint program) found here and the other is a Chroma-key plug-in for Paint.net found here. Basic instructions for using it are on this website. I made everyone get in front of a green sleeping bag one at a time, and took their pictures. Then I used the software to remove the green backgrounds. Last step was to combine all the individual pictures with a new background. I think it looks pretty good. And WE ARE ALL SMILING and NO ONE IS BLINKING!

I also used them to make this 4x6 picture to hand out at the Global MPACT Celebration next month:

Hope you enjoy the pictures and the software if you try it. We have been busy in the evenings with our online training course, but I will try to get some more updates on here soon.

Missionaries from all over the world will be coming to First Baptist Spartanburg next month to share in what God is doing. The celebration is from Oct 8th - 12th. Here is the video we shared about Bible Translation in the worship service this past Sunday...

How will you respond?
