  1. WOULD YOU, YOUR CHURCH OR YOUR BUSINESS CONSIDER A SPONSORSHIP? — If you or your church would consider even a small sponsorship of $30 or more, we’d be *so* much farther along toward our goal of paying our Brigada-sponsored secretary. If you can help, just click “sponsor” in the top menu (to use PayPal or a credit card), or just send a check payable to Team Expansion to: Team Expansion (Brigada secretary), 13711 Willow Reed Dr., Louisville, KY 40299. Thanks! As always, be sure to let us know if you’d like us to promote any particular service or ministry, or if you’d prefer your gift by anonymous.
