Mellisa Fern, SLO Town Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement I'm a photographer *mostly fiddle around*, writer, actress, model, mom, wife, world missionary, producer, director, teacher, chicken farmer, and more.
I ride a big-twin Harley-Davidson motorcycle and enjoy the culture of the biker community. My husband and I are often asked to be event photographers so I get to experience both the business and pleasure sides of the industry.
I want to always live life full throttle and love touching other people with genuine care and humor. Missionary work is a passion I can only exercise as funds allow, which is why I have created this site. Sales here go toward my travel account. Most of my trips cost between $1,500 and $3,000 which I raise myself.
The African children you see in these pictures live near Goma, DRC, and right now I'm praying for their safety. My hope is to return to the area (Gisenyi borders Goma) in the spring or summer of 09.
If you have a heart for missions, a love for people in need around the world, and an appreciation for any of my work, know that your purchase is going to help people in far away lands and possibly right next door.
God bless you.
