NEAR AND FAR
April 16, 2018
Today I feel doubly blessed! First, I have the benefit of your partnership and support, and now I have the pleasure of thanking you! Your extreme generosity has already made a significant impact in 2018, not only across the ocean but here at home too!
You have helped to strengthen and resource men and women who provide pastoral oversight, leadership and vision to a network of churches across Nepal. Your sacrifice and kind-heartedness are helping to build relational and missional bridges in the Czech Republic that will reach a predominantly secular and post-Christian population with the gospel. Thank you so very much!
Your faithful stewardship is also serving to strengthen, influence and impact churches in good ole Milwaukee! In March, I was invited to preach at all three weekend services at Southbrook Church in Franklin, Wisconsin. This past weekend I was preaching at Meadowbrook Church’s two morning services. Listen to these two recent sermons on our website.
In addition, Terry and I on separate occasions, have taught the Southeast Wisconsin Perspectives Class—an opportunity to inform and influence people from all over our city about God’s global mission to the nations. In July, Southbrook Church has invited me to teach five consecutive nights at their “Go Deeper” week.
None of these opportunities would have been possible without YOU!
It’s only April and as you can see, your generosity is already making an impact. Your financial gifts, “are a sweet-smelling sacrifice acceptable to God and pleasing to him. And this same God who takes care of us will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”(Phil. 4:18-19)
Your ongoing gifts mean that BrookLink can continue to strengthen church leaders and say ‘Yes’ to the ever-growing list of invitations.
Finally, we invite you to join us on Sunday, April 29th at 6:00pm for our 9th annual “Windows to the World” gathering at Meadowbrook Church. Our theme this year is, “A Story Meant to Be Told.” You’ll hear stories of how your faithful partnership is equipping, empowering and encouraging church leaders around the world. We hope you will join us.
God’s grace to you,
C. Lee Heyward
