Latin America ChildCare is a ministry that partners with local professional educators to bring schools to poverty areas in Central and South America and in the Caribbean.  They facilitate matching Americans with local children who need sponsorship to be able to attend school.  Each sponsor is assigned a child who corresponds and shares their joy about being able to attend school. LACC is a christian organization so the children are also learning to love God and find that He cares about them.  Sponsors get to encourage them and see them mature and become upstanding citizens.

I've been a professional photographer for 30+ years. My degree is in microbiology and I did research work in that field for 3 years which sounds glamourous and exciting but in reality I found it to be repetitive and uninspiring. It does explain my interest in the tiny world and my desire to understand how things work. I've always said I could be a professional student as I love to learn new things and photography certainly does provide that opportunity. Even after all these years I continue to learn new things every day. I find photography to be the perfect blend of science and art. Most recently, some of my favorite work has been in the area of macro photography, especially the beautiful world of flowers. I'm looking for not only the documentary recording of what a flower looks like, but also taking a closer look and finding ways of expressing a more artistic and abstract view using color, curves, lines, lighting and softness to create interesting compositions. I love finding beauty in simplicity: just the edge of a rose petal, the sensuous curve hidden inside a flower, the way the morning dew clings and shimmers in the sunrise, a synthesis of color, light and softness, blending the magnificent with the minute; these are the things that make my soul sing a soaring melody of thanks to the Creator.
