Dear Friends,

I love this season of seeing bicyclists, golfers, and RVs hitting Wisconsin roads.  Many of you are celebrating milestone graduations this season, too.  Because of you, I was recently able to participate in several graduations in North India.  These graduates are spreading their wings, ready to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to cities and villages where God is calling them.  Thanks to you, they are equipped and empowered to share the Good News!  

Because of your investment, BrookLink strengthens the church in the Majority World  outfitting Christian leaders with Biblical and practical resources, and helping them to build healthy, gospel-centered ministries in their local context.

The greatest threat to places where the church is growing most rapidly is poor theology and the lack of training for a Biblical worldview. BrookLink helps leaders blend both theology and practice in ministry. BrookLink equips leaders to lead in healthy and Christlike ways. Whenever leaders grow, the ministries and organizations they lead become healthier too. When leaders get better—their churches get better—their families flourish, their businesses thrive, their communities rise, and eventually a nation is transformed.

It takes our entire BrookLink support community to help church leaders become change-makers.  Every gift you give, no matter the amount, becomes part of something bigger and more powerful.

We are looking for 25 new monthly donors.  We would love to partner with you to make this dream a reality!  Consider taking your support to the next level with automatic monthly giving.  Your monthly giving ushers you into our special team, The Link.  By being part of The Link, you can make smaller, more frequent gifts.  This means that you can spread out your contribution over the course of a full year – like a subscription for doing good!  You can have a great impact on your Majority World church community while feeling less of an impact on your budget.  Reliable monthly gifts enable long-term planning, which means more balanced support, so our courageous leaders are outfitted for effective service year-round.

If you currently give monthly, would you consider increasing your gift by $10, $25 or $50?   Our office administrator, Lindsey Hulstrom, is happy to walk you through monthly giving arrangements.  Feel free to reach out to her at lindsey@brooklink.org or text her at (608) 436-0335.

Lee shares his gratitude and how your investment outfits Majority World church leaders.

You are the link for church leaders to receive effective teaching.  Thank you for praying for our global partners.  Your kindness and generosity makes a world of change for them and for their communities!

Prayer needs: This month, Dan and Lynne Green return to the Czech Republic to serve theological students, Ukrainian refugees, and church leaders.  Keith Doyle, TJ Addington, Ian Lawson, and I gather for the first-ever Canada Summit to pray and map long-term navigating for BrookLink.

Thank you so much for your prayers!  Terry has taken excellent care of me since my right hip replacement surgery on May 25th.  Not one to stand long enough for the moss to grow under my feet, I managed to power wash our deck and walk around the block less than a week after surgery.  No issues to report, for which I am exceedingly grateful.  While continuing to recover, I write materials on discipleship in preparation for outfitting denominational and business leaders in two East African countries in late August.  I am also looking forward to training in Romania in November while beginning plans for training in 2024.

We are truly grateful for all that you provide, including your financial giving.

You make a difference around the world, year-round.

Every blessing,

C. Lee Heyward, Founder & CEO
