From the Field | Greece

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Greetings from Athens, Greece! Terry and I, along with Paul and Lisa Sinclair, are here this week to teach and train Iranian Christians and to work with the refugee population. We arrived late Saturday night and after a day of rest, we began our weeklong meetings with 25 or so Iranians, along with Afghan refugees who have had to flee their homeland due to extremist violence.

Paul and I have been teaching and training the Iranian Christians in one location, while Terry and Lisa are meeting in a separate location with the Afghanis who arrive each morning from nearby refugee camps. In the evening the four of us gather to review the days’ events, adjust our teachings and share the amazing stories we are hearing from these people.

Our theme this week has been the “Fatherhood of God.” We are spending the whole week exploring the story Jesus told of the lost sons in Luke 15:11-32. Today the whole morning was devoted to just observing the details of the story.  Talk about a fascinating experience!! Imagine the electricity in the room as men and women brought forth one cultural distinctive after another from the text, enlightening all of us because of their unique Middle Eastern background. I saw a Middle Eastern story through Middle Eastern eyes today. I’ll never forget the incredible experience!

Together

Dear friends,

Terry and I have a good friend who is a well-known author, speaker and world traveler. When asked how she manages her hectic schedule, she replies, “I just do the next thing in front of my face.” 

Terry and I have added this phrase to our lives, especially when we look at our calendar for 2014. The year has already been full of adventures. Terry spent 20 days in West Africa shepherding a medical team as they set up and dismantled mobile clinics in remote communities. After saying goodbye to the dedicated doctors, pharmacists, nurses and volunteers, a team of contract landscapers arrived to provide clean water access that a Volta community lacked.

Trusting During Tremors

Trusting During Tremors

Dear friends,

Located in southwest Wisconsin, Richland Center is a small town which prides itself as the birthplace of world-renowned architect, writer, educator and interior designer, Frank Lloyd Wright.

Years ago Wright was given the impossible task of building the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. No comparable construction job ever before had been undertaken. In the land of earthquakes and terrible tremors Wright proposed his plans for this building with uncanny patience and an eye for detail. During the process of the design Wright discovered that eight feet below the ground lay a sixty-foot bed of soft mud. Wright suggested a design to “float” the massive structure in some way to make it absorb the shock of an earthquake.

Thankful for Your Partnership

Thankful for Your Partnership

Dear friends,

I am so thankful to God for your faithful partnership in 2013. Your support during this past year has equipped pastors and church leaders in parts of Europe, Africa, Asia, as well as here in the US.  It’s been a privilege to teach and share God’s Word and witness the growing hunger among the men and women called to lead Christ’s church. 

As we approach these final days of 2013, now is an outstanding time to make a contribution to BrookLink. If you have already made a year-end contribution, please accept my deepest gratitude! And if you are planning to contribute before year’s end, there is still time to do so. You can send your check postmarked by December 31, 2013 to:
