It seems like every week we have new exciting things going on with the Beyond Sight movie production!  Derek Rabelo was in Hawaii for December, January and February then he went home to Brazil for one week before coming here to California for six days of filming in March.  We had a very productive week including being on the San Diego and Oahu news (Watch here: and filming a scene at a Sambazon Acai restaurant, a Panera Bread restaurant, surfing sessions, and Derek’s interview.  Derek was also the guest speaker at a disabled technology convention (Thank you where he really encouraged many people including the Denny family whose daughter was in a car accident and almost lost 100% of her sight. Bryan Jennings and Derek were both guest speakers at Shoreline Church in San Clemente, which is a church of about 800 people who were very excited to meet Derek.  The next day they filmed with Shannon Quirk from the Surf Channel ( and they also encourage about 100 young kids at a school where Derek led the blindfolded kids around the classroom.  Another highlight of this trip was introducing Derek to the Graham family who has been very inspired by his story especially because their two year old son Kelptyn has a rare blood disease and has had two bone marrow transplants, many surgeries, and is now blind.  Kelptyn’s dad Matt is a surfer and he is very thankful to know through Derek’s story that Kelptyn’s life will also be full of adventures.  To read more about Kelptyn you can go to his parents’ blog here:  To finish the week we had a special Beyond Sight update night at the Wentz’ home.  Next steps are to film in Brazil as we edit the movie and plan out the world tour!  Thank you for all your prayers and support!
