Welcome to the Baldwin Boomerang

We long to see people in every tribe, tongue and nation transformed for God's glory. Our mission is to share the gospel by producing effective, compelling media tools that people can understand in their own culture and language. We are preparing to serve as full-time media missionaries with Create International. Toward that end we completed an extensive missions training program called a Crossroads DTS at YWAM Perth, Australia and a secondary YWAM school called the School of Frontier Media in Thailand. We are currently on furlough in North America and hope to see you face-to-face in 2010!

Support Information: Our support goal is currently near 50%.

You may send gifts and donations for our support to our sending agency Ripe for Harvest and please designate Account #247 in the memo line without including our name on the check. You may then mail the check directly to:

Ripe for Harvest, P.O. Box 487, Monument, CO 80132

PLEASE note new address.

It can take up to a month and a half for us to see your donation show up on our report. Also, Ripe for Harvest is able to issue a tax deductible receipt in the USA, but YWAM in Thailand is not.

If you want to be added to our newsletter list or have additional questions, email us at baldwinboomerang @ gmail dot com

PNG Photo Journey 7: Video in PNG

There were plenty of great opportunities to shoot some video in PNG. I get a kick of this photo of Allyson taking a photo of me shooting some video outside of church one night. A similar photo of me that Allyson took is featured above which served as my Facebook profile photo for a week or two.

Since we got back it's been a real challenge to get the footage onto the computer because there doesn't appear to be a vendor anywhere in Western Australia that can sell me a 4 pin to 9 pin (Firewire 800) cable that is compatible with my laptop. Editing the amazing PNG video footage will have to wait until I can overcome this logistical challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing and sorting through nearly 10 hours of PNG footage!

The local HIV/AIDS committee asked me to shoot some footage for a video that would provide training material for HIV/AIDS workers in the area. I am featured here with my friend Betty who did the interviewing. Good job Betty. Please pray that this video can get done soon and well to be a blessing to the community fighting misinformation about the spread of HIV/AIDS.

Here is the crew at the end of the afternoon after a long day's shoot in the heat. I appear to be airing out my armpits. Good thing I don't work in sense-o-rama vision.

After church one Sunday I was presented with this bag by my new friend George. Notice the amazing amounts of sweat pouring off of my body. Poor George probably had to go home and take a shower after hugging me for this photo.
