BY LINDSEY BLACK, CHANDLER, ARIZONA, USA - Last night's meeting was great. We are all getting closer like a family and are learning to work together like a good film crew. We were getting serial numbers, passports, and paperwork all ready and organized. Jeniece is in charge of hair and make-up and is bringing me along with her. We were looking online for books, but it was far and few between. Not only do we have to learn to do make-up for film but also hair and make-up for Africans.
We also chit chatted about certain customs and what not. My eyebrows lifted quite high on a few topics. Ironically, that same morning, I went to a bible study and the topic was on Endurance. This is something we are all going to need during this time of being out of our element. We may want to give up at least once or wonder why we got involved…but as a team we need to endure through the conditions and stay strong for Cyndi, Jabbes, and most importantly, for the people of Zambia. I think the endurance part will be needed the most when we return to the states. Some might be tired and want to rest from the project, but in reality, we have to endure until it is completely finished all the way through to the credits. We have got to get these films edited down and not slow down until we are done. So let's all encourage each other and endure until the end.
