Our global partners express gratitude for your support. Be encouraged! This is our time to trust God and be creative. Thank you for supporting and praying for BrookLink.
In the midst of this season, God remains faithful. Even in uncertain times, you continue to walk with our ministry partners and help them. Learn how you can make a difference in a virtual VBS opportunity. You are needed. Your help is needed, and we are asking you to give generously at this time.
While we have had to curtail our travel plans, the ministry is not standing still. We are committed to our 18 international partnerships, and are using this time to connect with our overseas partners. Our facilitators serve as consultants to those partners. Our vision remains unchanged, because the needs in the global church remain the same.
Much has changed in the world, and in our lives, in a very short time. But some important things have not changed, and we celebrated that this past weekend. Certainly, it was a very unusual Good Friday and Easter Sunday as many observed “safer at home” orders and were unable to gather with their church families. I was thinking about how that first Easter must have been similar to our experience this year.
“They preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned…, strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith.” Acts 14: 21-22a NIV
As we’ve shared with you recently, BrookLink’s facilitator team had a summer of extensive travel. You helped send six members of our training team and affiliates from Europe to Africa to South Asia. The stories they shared upon their return were inspirational, and we want to share them with you!
"...for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation." Revelation 5:9
In June, BrookLink was invited to return again to Ethiopia to minister in the Kale Heywet churches. Pastor Timothy Ryder of Waukesha, Wisconsin and Pastor Ian Lawson of Alberta, Canada traveled to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to lead church leaders through three days of training.
Happy New Year! As 2019 begins I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude to God for what YOU have made possible. I want to convey my heartfelt thanks to you for your generous gifts to BrookLink. Due to your extreme generosity, BrookLink strengthened nearly 4,000 church leaders in 5 countries and finished 2018 well positioned financially for the work ahead. Truly we are “strengthening churches together”!
I am humbled and blown away by your response to #GivingTuesday. Your dollars have allowed BrookLink to serve and minster to thousands of church leaders and pastors around the world and here at home for the past 10 years. Without your support, this work would not be possible. I am writing today to update you on what has been going on for the past couple of weeks.
