First Overseas Assignment

Filming in Romania and Ukraine January 2020

I am very excited to be filming my first overseas assignment this January! I will be capturing footage for Missio Link International in Romania and Solid Rock Mission in Ukraine.


One of many reasons I wanted to become a missionary is to be part of projects that promote holistic approaches to helping those in need all over the world. My purpose is to help people see how we all can be part of solutions to help those in need.

Our hope at New International is to produce video content that inspires people to be active in helping the youth of Romania and Ukraine by praying, financially supporting, and perhaps assisting the ministries with short-term ministry projects.

These videos produced will be used by Ends Cycling as part of their 2020 ride tour promotional material, video prayer themes, and overall awareness for the ministries in Romania and Ukraine.

In March 2020 I will be filming the 9th Annual Key West Bike from Fort Myers, FL to Key West, FL. This ride will raise support for Missio Link International in Romania in order for them to provide partnerships between Christians, churches, and organizations, aimed at Christian witnessing, edification and helping the exploited, abused, and trafficked children in Romania.

If you are interested in more information about this bike ride or would like to sign up as a rider or support staff please go to:

This coming September, the videos produced for the Ukrainian youth ministry, Solid Rock Mission, will be used to promote another bike ride beginning in Seattle, Washington. I will also be one of the videographers for that bike ride. The dates for this bike ride are September 12-16 and the ride will go from Seattle to a ferry ride to Whidbey Island to crossing the Deception Pass Bridge that connect to the US Bike Route 10 through the majestic Cascades Mountains. After climbing Washington Pass, they’ll meet the Columbia River and end in Bavarian-themed Leavenworth.

So why bike rides? We are part of a movement to connect people who want to change the world with opportunities to use cycling to bring the hope of the Gospel to global youth through multi-day Christ-centered bicycling tours. As a videographer, I am able to capture both the ride and ministries they’re riding for, in order to help tell a complete story. Our goal is to go back to Ukraine and Romania after the funds have been raised to see the complete impact of those funds.


The complete cost for traveling and staying in Ukraine and Romania from January 1 – 11 is $2,300. The Seattle support team and Key West Bike team will cost around $1,000. While we have raised a majority of our living expenses we are asking for support for specific ministry expenses. Our complete 2020 ministry calendar goal will be coming soon. For now, would you consider financially joining us for this particular journey as a special project gift?

If you feel led to join our team with monthly financial support we would love to expand our team to do more ministry. Thank you.
