“And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.” ~ Joel 2:28
Just like the little book of Joel, BrookLink has some big dreams. Through the 14 years that God has breathed life into BrookLink, our mission remains, “to strengthen disciple-making movements through equipping, empowering, and releasing leaders in their contexts.” We believe our unique mission provides critical and consistent training and resources for disciple-making movement leaders like “Amir” (due to his national security, we can’t release his real name or country). Let me tell you about Amir’s dream and how the Lord answered.
For those of you newer to BrookLink, the picture below is during a visit to Southeast Asia in 2018. BrookLink was invited to teach a course in preaching to 10 post-graduate students. Amir was one of those students, and he dreamed that one day BrookLink would return to his country. He prayed, “Lord, would you please bring BrookLink back?” My friends, YOU are the answer to Amir’s prayers! Since 2018 Amir has been leading and meeting regularly with church leaders across his country. Recently, he contacted me and asked if BrookLink would come for a week of training. We have accepted Amir’s invitation to equip 125 disciple-making leaders in March 2024. This is an incredible national movement with leaders coming from all over their country. Amir asks for your prayers, “Pray for God’s guidance as we organize and for everything to go well. Pray for leaders in remote areas, and for our families.” He adds, “We are so happy for Dr. Lee to return to equip pastors!”
Please pray for Lee and our facilitator, Ian Lawson, as they prepare to serve “Amir” and 125 disciple-making leaders in March 2024 for a week of training in SE Asia.
I am dreaming big dreams for 2024, praying and asking God to provide the necessary resources to equip people like Amir and many more. Would you please consider making a financial gift by year-end to enable BrookLink to pour into leaders like Amir? As 2024 unfolds, we’ve already said ‘Yes!’ to invitations in Liberia, Southeast Asia, Uganda, Rwanda, Singapore, and Vietnam.
Every $225 helps one Christian leader receive access to BrookLink’s intentional leadership training and development. Make a gift today!
Your support and prayers for such a time as this are deeply appreciated. Will you prayerfully consider making a gift today? Our year-end goal is to raise $300,000 by December 31, 2023.
You made all this possible! Thank you for an amazing 2023.
Would you please pray for Terry and me as we wrap up serving pastors and their wives in Romania. We look forward to sharing their stories later this month. Praise God for the seeds planted by facilitator, Keith Doyle, as he and his wife taught hermeneutics to leaders in Turkey last month. I don’t think Keith dreamed nine years ago that he and Kerry would be training pastors in the same spot where he and I trained pastors in 2014.
Your giving literally makes dreams come true for pastors like Amir! Let’s dream big together and watch how the Lord answers your prayers.
