1) Don’t Forget Emmaus Encounter

We mentioned last week that Emmaus Encounter is a debriefing ministry located in Montana (near Glacier National Park) for those in Christian ministry including missionaries, pastors and lay-people. It is a 5-day program offering listening space, time, and exercises that help you see Jesus in your journey, in the midst of pain, loss, injustice, confusion, disappointments, transition and weariness. This is a private, personal and sacred time together with only you (couple/single) and the debriefers. Don’t forget to contact them soon regarding upcoming debriefings that you might be able to attend.

2) You Can Help Others Overcome their Addictions to ****ography

Point them to this free 8-day online RESTORED Boot Camp hosted by former Hockey Canada player Matt Cline. His mission is to equip those caught in **xual addiction to live powerfully in the freedom that God has for them. Matt’s Boot Camp normally costs over $100. It is currently free for ministry workers. Register at:

(Note: Due to our mailing service’s stringent guidelines, we can’t actually say certain words in Brigada. If we do, the mailing service ends up blocking our newsletter. We hope you can get the meaning above though.)

3) GRC Announces Group Sessions at Reduced Rates

Led by licensed counselors, these intimate groups meet on a variety of topics for 6 – 7 weeks over video. They are designed as group process, not therapy groups. There will be an educational component and include opportunity for group discussion and reflection.

On the homepage, check out the free interactive storybook with scenes from the film – great lesson for all ages! How does Christian escape from Giant Despair? The more people in theaters April 18 & 20, the faster other languages will be produced.

6) Field Preparation For Work Among Unreached People Groups

The 25th cohort of Beautiful Feet Boot Camp is forming now, to take place July-August in Oklahoma City. The vision is to equip kingdom-minded, contemplative people who have a full tool belt and a passion for the multiplication of disciples among unreached people groups. Major topics include the kingdom of God, Christian community, compassionate ministry, incarnational living, gospel contextualization, disciple-making movements, and so much more.

7) Volunteering with Medical Santo (Vanuatu)

Medical Santo needs Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics and Dentist volunteers to ensure the ongoing provision of health services to the people of Northern Vanuatu. They especially require a long term doctor and can provide some financial assistance for this position. If you are in a position to consider volunteering, they’d love to hear from you right away. Do you know some medical professionals who may be interested in volunteering? They’d greatly appreciate you passing this information along to them! Learn more at…

12) You Will be Moved by "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind"

Have you seen “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” (available on Netflix)? It’s about a young boy in Malawi trying to make it through life in spite of his family’s poverty and the political forces around him. He loves science and wants to learn — but there are so many enemies that seem to want to keep him away. The movie seems fit for ages 12 and above for sure. There’s a scene or two of fighting, but nothing that a young lad wouldn’t see on any other prime-time drama. Frankly, the life lessons about trying to make it in the midst of a corrupt democracy is pretty chilling. You’ll ponder this one for a long time after viewing it. Learn more about the movie on the BBC’s synopsis page at…
