1) A Missionary Christmas

praycentralPrayercentral.net loves Missionaries, and has developed several online tools to help Missionaries get the prayer they need. This month they have published an awesome youtube video to help churches and supporters remember their Missionaries this Christmas. You can view an awesome video on their Missionary Prayer page, as well as several other prayer tools you can use to get the prayer support you need, or mobilize prayer for your Missionaries. By the way, if you work with a local church on the “sender-side,” get a look at that video. It’s very possible that you’ll want to play it in your local church this Sunday!


All of these tools are free, and have been developed by Missionaries in the field. (Thanks for the tip, Wayne! … and thanks for becoming a True Friend of Brigada by pitching in $100 to light Brigada fires!)

6) Connecting with Jesus’ Mission

connection2010One of our core human needs is to be connected. For this reason, FollowOne International is hosting a gathering February 5-7, 2010 in Orlando, FL. Connection2010 will provide an interactive, worshipful, grace-filled environment where Christ followers, worship leaders and church leaders can more intimately connect with Jesus, His body and His mission.


Some of the topics that will be addressed are church mission team strategies, worship and outreach, international student ministry, and ministry in the Muslim world. Some of the speakers are Steve Richardson (Pioneers), Dick McClain (The Mission Society), Buddy Hoffman (Grace Church, Snellville GA), James Loftin (FollowOne International), and Steve Dortch (Bridges International). Generous partners have provided funding to significantly discount the conference cost. For more information contact the organizers at (407)366-8485 or

10) Your Gift Can Make it or Break it

This brings to $9274.38 the amount already sent. However, that leaves $ $7,845.62 to go in the next 3 weekends. Gulp. Since we still need 78 “True Friends,” that means approximately 26 per weekend. Would you be one of the 26 for this coming week? Last year, a single donor gave $5000. Is there someone called by God to give similarly this year to help us make it in the direction of the $7,945 still needed? That’s 79 True Friends… or one major donor of $5000 and 29 True Friends. Would you or your church be one of those true friends? If you’re unable to give $100 at this time, are you in a position to help with a portion of that value? If so, just click on one of the “Donor” links at the top of this page. Both are safe, the one with PayPal and the other with one of the most well-known “real” online merchants on the web. Neither requires you to open an account with anyone … and neither ever spams you. We can even set up a regular once-a-month automatic withdraw from your checking account or major credit card. Set it up once and rest easily, knowing that you’re regularly helping get Brigada on the way to the nations. Or, if you prefer, just send an old-fashioned check payable to Team Expansion to: Team Expansion (Brigada), 13711 Willow Reed Dr., Louisville, KY 40299. (Team Expansion is a 501(c)3 incorporation so for USA citizens, your checks made out to Team Expansion are tax-deductible.) A gift of any size would help, whether monthly or one-time. If you know someone else who might like to help, just hit reply and tell us about him/her/them. Thank you for your help in fueling the fire of Brigada!
