Sometimes we have to say goodbye to friends, and it's very bittersweet. For the past eighteen months, we have had an amazing couple be part of the IMM family. But this month, we had to say goodbye.

Junior and Mikaela became part of the IMM team during the summer of 2017. Junior is a fantastic cinematographer, photographer, and editor. Junior’s wife, Mikaela, is a great producer. Together they are a film-making powerhouse. They have done more than help to create The Heritage Project at IMM. They have also created several powerful short films that address social issues.

Junior and Mikaela are moving from Spain to the United States. Their goal is to be a good influence and Christian witness in the film-making world on the west coast. They don’t know what God has in store for them yet, but what they do know is that God wants them there.

Saying goodbye to these wonderful people is very difficult. In their time at IMM, we shared some incredibly long days — waking up before the sun to get started and not stopping until late at night. During this time, they became more than colleagues, they became friends. It’s bittersweet for our IMM family to see them go. Bitter in the fact that we are losing some great people, but sweet because we know that God will use them in a mighty way.

Junior and Mikaela, know that the IMM family loves you and will miss you. We are praying Numbers 6:24-26 over you.

“May the Lord bring good to you and keep you. May the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be kind to you. May the Lord show favor toward you, and give you peace.”’
