On location: filming in a brothel in Bangladesh

On location: filming in a brothel in Bangladesh It was a long drive from the capital city of Dhaka, but then again every drive in and around Dhaka is long no matter if its two or twenty miles. Once out of the city, lush green jungle reflected off the rice paddies. The speed of our... Read More»

Who are the Rohingya?

I just got back from Bangladesh. This time, I went to meet Rohingya refugees. It’s a really horrific situation to comprehend—particularly after sitting in the tents with these families and listening to their stories. The Rohingya are a people group from Myanmar and are currently experiencing a genocide.  The stories of terror, mass ... Read More»
