Bui’s Story

Created for Pioneers International as a tool to catalyze prayer for Northern Thailand.

Concept, shooting, editing, my own. Bui’s Story was shot about 45 minutes North of Chiang Mai, Thailand, where I was living at the time. I sat with her in a non-airconditioned living room with no fans on for nearly an hour as she recounted her story with me. It was a privilege to hear the depth of life change she experienced through the kindness and persistence of strangers. Interviewing Terry and Robyn was a rare treat, especially because they were incredibly busy taking care of all their foster kids. In fact, Robyn was only there for half the interview as a child in need required her to leave. They are amazing people with enormous hearts.
