Girl's House of Refuge
The House of Refuge, a non-profit ministry of Water of Life, is dedicated to reaching the young women of Cambodia with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. By providing a safe environment, education, and the Word of God, we help women grow and develop into who God has truly called them to be. With loving support, counseling, discipleship, and basic life skills training, each girl’s plan is specifically tailored to meet her needs. It is the goal of the House of Refuge to see chains broken, to see lives renewed in Christ, and to see restored those years that the locusts have eaten. “He raises the poor from the dust, and lifts the needy from the ash heap; He seats them with princes, with the princes of their people.” -Psalm 113:7

Bright Colors and Long Shadows
It was a beautiful November Saturday so I went downtown to shoot a few scenes. "Autumn" is about spending time with family and friends while enjoying some comforts. It's about the first cold days of the year when people break out their gloves and scarves. It's about long shadows, crisp air and golden leaves. Filmed in Greenwich, CT.
