One of the “projects” I was asked to do for this trip was to setup a photo exhibit at the hospital. Last year I scanned dozens of old photos of the hospital and its staff. I had those images and some of my own printed and matted and brought them out.
This morning I set them up at the out patient department and was amazed at how fast a crowd of people gathered around them. Each person was closely analyzing each photograph and discussing them with each other in Mampruli. If only I could understand what they were saying (probably things like “eh, lacks impact”).
As Christian and an artist, I believe that part of being made in God’s image and likeness means I have the ability to create, the desire to create, and the immense satisfaction of bringing joy to others with your creation. There is nothing more fulfilling than to see others not just see my work but interact with it and be positively affected by it.
You can see many of the old photos in the Media section of BMC website (on second slideshow screen under “From the BMC Scrapbook”).
