Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

I took this in Melekeok Palau at low tide during sunrise. It’s an idyllic setting in a poor part of the nation. Taken with a Nikon D5100 and an 18-55 lens.

I have had a camera in my hand since the late sixties! Recently someone looked at a photo display I had in a coffee shop and got goose bumps. All I try to do is to capture various aspects of God’s amazing creation and let you also enjoy what I am seeing! If you get goose bumps, that’s great. But remember I only capture what he created. He creates, I capture, we enjoy.

    a beautiful story image, Randy!!!

  • Thanks Phil, we have been having a great time both with Palau and with ministry. I taught 4 times in the last 4 days and God was gracious each time. May His Spirit grip the hearts of the Palauan people and reveal Jesus is is saving power!

  • Thanks Jane, I wish I was back there too and hopefully we will get back to Palau. We have an open invite and my wife has a job if she wants it. does not pay much and it’s long hours at a private school, but it’s a job.
