Windows to the World: Chicago

Thankful for the Year Ahead

Thankful for the Year Ahead

Dear Friends,

It is a blessing to enter into these initial months of 2015 with a palpable sense of excitement and enthusiasm for what the year ahead will bring for BrookLink. But lest I allow my enthusiasm to get ahead of me, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the role you played in the success and support of BrookLink in 2014.
 
Because of your faithful generosity, BrookLink finished 2014 in the black, achieving 94% of our annual budget. Your kind gifts in the closing months position us well for the year ahead. When we look at the stories of the amazing transformation that God effected in the lives of the church leaders we equipped last year, we can only conclude it has been an exceptional year, because of you!
 
2015 is off and running! On February 25, 2015 I will depart for Cape Town, South Africa for 10 days. Once again, in partnership with my friends John and Barbara Doyle of Cape Missions International (CMI), BrookLink will provide training for church leaders across this beautiful city.

Make a Final Gift in 2014

Make a Final Gift in 2014

Dear Friends,

“Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.” 1 Cor. 15:58

As January soon arrives, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the ways that you have been faithfully standing with BrookLink throughout 2014. We are constantly aware of the steadfast ways that you, our partners and God’s servants have said ‘yes’ to helping equip, empower, and release church leaders and pastors around the world. 

We are so encouraged by the response to our year-end effort to train committed servants of Christ—leaders who will multiply their influence through others. Thank you for all those who have responded!

If you have not had a chance to give to BrookLink, would you please prayerfully consider making a gift to BrookLink by December 31, 2014—just two days awayClick here to learn more about the different ways you can give.

Dear Friends,

In just a few days we will roll over our calendars into 2015. And before we do I wanted to write you a quick note for two reasons.

First, it’s probably no surprise to you that many non-profit ministries receive more than a third of their annual income each year in the month of December. BrookLink is no exception.

Presently we need to raise $80,000 to help us meet our 2014 budget and to set us up for the good work we have been invited to do in 2015. Many of you have already responded to our need and I want you to know how grateful we are for your generosity and support.

Perhaps you haven’t had a chance to give during the rush of the season; may I ask that you give a generous gift to BrookLink as the Lord leads you by December 31. Make a Gift today.

On Giving Tuesday...

Hot Off the Press

Hot Off the Press

Dear Friends,

From time to time, Terry and I are invited to speak at area churches about the ministry of BrookLink. These occasions never detract from our work internationally with church leaders. In fact, engaging regularly with US churches always affords us opportunity to keep a pulse on the local church, to bring a much-needed global perspective, and to mobilize area churches for cooperative mission.

This month Terry and I met with a delightful group of believers who invited us to come talk about BrookLink. Second Place Church is a six year-old church located in the southwestern suburbs of Chicago (Monee, IL). This mostly under-30 crowd has re-purposed a local warehouse, transforming it into a place of worship. We met men and women joyfully engaging in God’s mission locally and globally.

My talk at Second Place Church was on “Life in High Defi-Mission”, followed by a lively question and answer time. If you have 30 minutes you can watch the video of the sermon on the Sermons & Videos page.

Release | R-E-L-A-X

Release | R-E-L-A-X

Dear Friends,

I’m an avid Green Bay Packer fan! However, no sooner had the new NFL season gotten underway when panic settled over Packer Nation! Throughout Wisconsin, cheeseheads were in virtual meltdown due to the Packers’ disappointing start to the season. At 1-2, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suddenly took to the airwaves and calmly and confidently announced to Packer Nation, “R-E-L-A-X.” His teammates apparently were listening too! Now, after three successive and impressive victories, the Packers are tied for the lead in their division!

According to Webster’s dictionary R-E-L-A-X is derived from a similar word R-E-L-E-A-S-E. More specifically, to release someone implies setting him or her free from cares and concerns, letting them loose, giving them up.

Lee has been invited by John and Barbara Doyle of Cape Missions International to Cape Town, South Africa February 25-March 7, 2015. Pastor Keith Doyle and a team from Winnetka Bible Church in Winnetka, IL will join him. They will conduct training workshops for Pastors and Church leaders on “Preaching For Transformation: Proclaiming Truth With Clarity and Relevance.”

Learn more about the training workshops. 

This is BrookLink's third trip to South Africa. As Lee prepares to serve abroad, please pray that the ministry would be effective and encourage the pastors and church leaders serving in hard places.



Ministering Together in Uganda

Ministering Together in Uganda

Partnerships, relationships, friendships are at the core of BrookLink’s ethos. We go, we encourage, meet new believers and renew friendships with people across the world as they invite us to cycle in and out of their lives and ministries.

Reverend Justus Miwanda has been to our home multiple times in the past five years. During one of these visits he invited us to come and serve International Needs Uganda.  It was a welcome invitation and highly anticipated after we heard that Terry and I would be able to travel together.
