THAILAND MISSION | SUPPORT LETTER

Dear Family & Friends, greetings from Kapolei, Hawaii :)                                                                                 August 1, 2014

I’m headed to Thailand! And here’s the quick story…

About 2 years ago through a message at church, God told me that I would be joining a mission team at what was then Hope Chapel West Oahu (now Inspire Church). At the time, with 3 young girls, I immediately thought of the many reasons why it just wouldn’t happen—who would chauffeur the kids around while I’m gone? They need me! :)

At that time it seemed impossible, but we know that when God speaks, He intends to be heard.

A couple of conversations earlier this year put the idea in my mind once again and the time seemed right. While I still haven’t figured out the details of how the kids will be taken care of while I’m gone, it’s more of a second thought now, I know they’ll be fine. If God will provide the opportunity to serve Him and pack up and go, He will certainly take care of the family while I am away.

After much prayer, and another great message that seemed to speak right to me, as well as encouragement from the team, I joyfully changed my maybe to a YES!! This will be my first time off U.S. soil and I am so excited to see how God will use His team to bless and be blessed by the people we come in contact with and beyond.

The team I’ve joined is the 2015 Thailand Medical Mission Team at Inspire Church Waikele. We will be departing January 6 and returning January 19, 2015, heading in to Bangkok, Mae Sot as well as the hill tribes. This will be the 5th year team leaders Sam and Jeannie Ng and the team have partnered with the Foursquare Church in Thailand to provide basic healthcare and health education for the migrant adults and children at the migrant school, safe house, slum communities and hill tribes. We will also coordinate arts and crafts activities with the children. While the rest of the team helps medically, I will take photos. Together we will help provide spiritual support and encouragement to the people including local ministry leaders.

I am grateful for this amazing opportunity and ask you keep our team, the people of Thailand and myself in your prayers. If you are able to pray, I’d like to know and be able to thank you personally, please visit http://www.alisagreig.com/thailand-mission to fill out a short form so I can be in touch. While we are fundraising monthly as a group to help with medical supply costs, etc., we are responsible to raise our own funds, roughly $2200. If you feel led to support me financially, you may do so at http://www.alisagreig.com/thailand-mission. Your contribution will help cover my travel expenses, ground fees and other trip related expenses. If you prefer your donation to be tax-duductible, use the form on the site to contact me and I will gladly send you a form for tax purposes. Besides prayer and a direct donation through the church, another form of support is through my website, http://www.alisagreig.com/shop, where 50% of all sales through the month of August will go directly toward the trips expenses, enter code “Thailand2015” at checkout for 25% off through August 31.

Thank you in advance for your support, whether through prayer, donations or a website purchase, it means a lot to me to know that while we can’t do everything, we can all do something and anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated!

 

Declare His glory among the nations, His marvelous deeds among all peoples.

                                                                            Much love & Aloha in Christ,

THACKER OHANA | OAHU, HAWAII FAMILY FILM PHOTOGRAPHER

I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the Thacker family in 2012 when they were a party of 4 and was excited to be able to hang out with them again this time with an additional little cutie.  We decided on the east side of the island which surprisingly to me was my first time having a family session out that way.

It was lovely.  Probably one of my favorite sessions, very laid back, just my style. :)  THACKER005Untitled-5THACKER014Untitled-7THACKER010Untitled-3THACKER073Untitled-6THACKER038Untitled-1THACKER053THACKER007Untitled-8Untitled-4THACKER045THACKER019THACKER048THACKER074Untitled-2THACKER040

VACATION | THE 2ND HALF | CALIFORNIA

California is so pretty, the weather our entire time there was perfect, already looking forward to going back.

And like every other time I have a camera with me–and go/do something fun and special–I always wish I shot more.

Until next time, California, thanks for a great time! :)

VACATION 2012 | PART 1

A year ago we spent about 12 days on a little road trip, starting and ending in San Jose.  We were able to visit with some family, drive through Yosemite, spend a couple nights in Vegas, see more family, visit the Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon and then Grand Canyon, all in the first half.  Hope to post the second half soon!

[A variety of cameras and films used--all processed at the fine FIND Lab]

A DAY AT DISNEY

Exactly a year ago we surprised the girls with a day at disneyland.

We weren’t sure we’d be able to make the stop on our trip so we hadn’t planned for it,

but once we knew it would work out,

we gave them each a note to open and boy were they surprised :)

ANTICIPATING NO. 2

Here’s a fun session from several months back.

 I had a great time with these 2 young ladies on the lovely beach they pretty much call their front yard :)
