And what is Luo? Well, we have had the privilege of spending some time in Lira, Uganda working with Children of the Nations. Our church has partnered with this organization for a number of years because of the incredible work they do empowering widows and orphans in their communities. While we were there, we picked up a sprinkling of Luo, the local language.

We’ve also recently had the privilege of working with The Chisomo Idea in Lilongwe, Malawi. We took a group of about 15 college kids and gave them a 2 week crash course on videography, editing, and running a small business. We then left over there a set of donated equipment, so that they could start better documenting the great work and beautiful stories that The Chisomo Idea is a part of.

By the way, where does ‘Amari’ come from?

Short Answer: It means “I love you” in Luo.
