Student videographer captures refugee stories

In early 2010, Lutheran West high school student Mack Doherty and his dad, Mike, approached Building Hope in the City with an idea for a refugee ministry project. Mack proposed involving several members of his Boy Scout troop with local refugee youth in a series of soccer lessons and games. As his Eagle Scout project, Mack would coordinate all these activities, including shooting, writing, and editing an accompanying video. The timing was great, as it coincided with the World Cup, including a “mini” World Cup tournament and viewing party at Building Hope in the City last July! We are especially pleased to report that Mack just earned his Eagle Scout badge! Thanks, Mack, for giving so generously of your time and talents, and providing insight into this work from a student point of view.
