Our First Photography Camp
This week, our Emerge Team has been extremely busy conducting a photography camp for Thai people from the Chiang Rai area. This has been such an interesting camp because of the demographic of people in attendance. The students’ ages range from 14 to 40-something, and they come from all sorts of backgrounds. At first we weren’t sure about the dynamic of the learning environment, considering some of the students attend high school while others actually have children in high school.But it has been so refreshing to see everyone band together, creating such a great environment.
The majority of our students are non-Christian, which was a main reason conducting this training camp. We wanted to expose Thai’s to a loving Christ-filled atmosphere who otherwise wouldn’t come into regular contact with Christians. Throughout the week, students have been taught photography principles, but more importantly, they have been exposed to the message of Christ and His followers who try to be living examples of that message.
