And Mary said, “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior”
-Luke 1:46-47

Dear Friends,

During the modern-day Christmas season, layered with busyness and material distractions, one can easily disconnect from the reason for celebration: the precious gift of the birth of Jesus.  When we take the time to connect and give thanks for our salvation in Christ, we reunite with the meaning of Christmas and find gratitude in our hearts.  At BrookLink we are grateful for your friendship and partnership in our mission to strengthen churches and gospel movements by equipping, empowering and releasing leaders.

Would you help us head into 2020 strong by making a financial gift prior to December 31, 2019

Recently we’ve been sharing stories of reaching the nations, why we do it and where we go.  The how we do it is because of you.  The only way to reach the nations is together, side by side with our supporters.  You are the reason we can travel two by two, one invitation and one place at a time.  Thank you so much for this privilege you entrust to us year after year for the past ten years!

Terry and I welcomed our 6th grandchild, Benjamin Warren Heyward, on December 18! Our son Drew and his wife Taylor are overjoyed with their first child’s arrival. December babies do well to remind us of Mary’s baby Jesus whose birth we will celebrate in just a few more days. Snuggly, squishy bundles of sweetness, we can hardly wait to meet little Ben in person.

But we aren’t the only ones to enjoy a new little one.

Louise Warren, Chair of BrookLink’s Board of Directors, welcomed her first grandchild, Margaret James Warren on December 13. And incoming President, Ian Lawson, is thrilled to become a grandfather for the 15th time when Jack William Watson arrived on December 2.

We have over a dozen invitations to travel in 2020, including Ethiopia, Armenia, India, China, the Czech Republic and Pakistan.  We forge ahead as God leads and trust in His provision.   With just four days left until the end of the year, would you help us reach our goal of raising nearly $175,000 to Reach the Nations in 2020?

Grateful for you as we work side by side for the Gospel,

C. Lee Heyward
Founder & CEO
