It was a whirlwind summer for volunteer Bethany Johnson, who took her camera to South Africa and Ecuador during a hectic 10-week trip. A student at King’s College in NY, Bethany had previously served with ER through our partner Living Hope in South Africa.
Bethany focused on bringing you the sights, sounds and stories of the vulnerable people we serve. Her video assignments included everything from the Dream Centers in South Africa and Quito to a new functional fitness program to a Leadership Development program the Quito Women’s Program.
Because of COVID restrictions, Bethany had to overcome some rescheduling. She navigated the changes like a champ and we all benefited because she was able to shoot and produce eight full videos, plus numerous short clips and photos.
The trip turned out to be a great learning experience. Bethany said working cross-culturally strengthened her video skills and self-confidence, while God provided for her needs, safety and health.
Here are two of her videos from Quito, Ecuador, and Fish Hoek, South Africa.
