Art meets mission.
Derek’s why behind the trip
Through Dove International my sister Tahnya Lapp connected with Ugandan missionaries Raphael and Cathy who are doing incredible things meeting the spiritual, social, economic, and health needs of villages in Northern Uganda.
Tahnya and I both connected with Raphael because he is so mission minded and a true visionary, but also because of his artistry. Both Tahnya and I are artists and love how art parallels to life in so many ways. We are all met with a blank canvas every day and we have to see something that’s not there before it’s there. Raphael and Cathy choose to see the God-given potential of the villages they work in and we want to spread the word so people from around the world can support their mission.
