That’s what we’re hearing from Ron, who keeps careful track of his normal, everyday downloads, as well as what happens when he lists an item in Brigada. Here’s his unsolicited note, received April 29th:
“I told you I would let you know about how many books are downloaded at the end of three weeks, but I believe you will be interested in what happened yesterday–the first day after you sent Brigada Today late Tuesday evening.
“During the first 25 days of April people downloaded an average of 90 books each day (range was 45-154). Yesterday people downloaded 912 books!! (238 of them were Psychology for Missionaries, [the book Brigada featured]) … It really has a huge impact!”
Ron, thanks for taking time to write back and let us know your quantitative results — and may God keep on empowering you to offer up good stuff to the Brigada family on your site at…
Who knew that Brigada would bring him 10 times the normal “customers” at his site. But the truth is, Brigada readers know a great deal when they see it. The site sells itself. And it’s really rare to find such great stuff on missionary care — period — and the fact that it’s being offered for free is unbelievable. Great content on missionary marriage, third-culture kids, raising resilient MKs, reentry, reentry for MKs, reentry for short-termers — I’m tellin’ ya, the guy has something for everyone. Highly recommended.
