At the celebration of BJ's life, 97 students responded to the call of Christ to take His name around the world!

I think it is time to update you on what that looks like (as much as I can).

First, I want to remind you that BJ's cousin Joshua, who bears BJ's Sword, was the first to stand that day, to proclaim that he was called. Three years later, he would stand on a street corner in Peru and preach the Word of God...at the age of 9!

Many went before BJ. Many went with BJ. Many have gone since he went. With the help of Mercyme and many of you, a fund entitled BJ's Hope was established. It is a missions scholarship that my family oversees, with the privilege of helping to send students around the world to serve!

This week, I am helping to prepare a team headed to Uganda and then later, our other summer missions teams, I think it relevant to tell you the places we have been able to help fund the work of our King.

So far, BJ's Hope Scholarship has help send students to the following nations:

Chile, Ecuador, Egypt, France, India, Kenya, Maldives, Peru, Philippines, Uganda and the USA!

We praise God for His provision! We know there are those who responded that day that may have gone elsewhere that we have lost track of. We praise Him for this journey!

A school in Piura, Peru, which carries BJ's name continues to function, in the raising up of children through educating them in the ways of our Lord.

We are receiving an increasing number of requests from more and more students who are called from all over our country to go and serve all over the world. We are so thankful to be a part of this. We also know that the resources are finite.

BJ would be thrilled to know that he has been a part of sending students to so many places! We trust you are as well.

What a privilege and a joy it is to be able to assist those who respond to God's call to GO! We always wish we could do more. It never seems like we are giving enough.

I will be gone the rest of this week to prepare a team of 15 (three are leaders and two are young children of the leadership) to head to Uganda for eight weeks. This group will live with the Tepez tribe of the Karamojong people (to learn more about them you can read my blogs from early February).

This team will join the Chile, Peru and South Asia teams on July 22 in Dallas, to celebrate all the Lord does this summer, to reach the unreached.

They urgently need your prayer support...even now as they train to go.

Have a great week!

Thank you for giving! Thank you for mobilizing! Thank you for GOing!

Brent Praise Him. Thank you for your service.
And that you can praise Him in all things.

Isaiah 11:3 ... and he shall not judge
after the sight of his eyes,
neither reprove
after the hearing of his ears.

Saw your blog on blogger under missionaries.
Seems you're having a blessed time in Paradise.

If mud is dirt plus water, what is clay?

Job 10:9 Remember, I beseech thee,
that thou hast made me as the clay;
and wilt thou bring me into dust again?

Isa 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father;
we are the clay, and thou our potter;
and we all are the work of thy hand.

Sounds like Jesus to me.
Missionaries and clay.
Can you have one without the other.

Thought this complimentary e-book and website
might be a benefit to you and those you serve.

God's Words of Comfort & Healing 
The Book  ✧  The Posters  ✧  The Words

An Absolutely Free E-Book and Website.
A Totally Free Download At:
 web.me.com/love101

Lots of 8x10 wall posters
proclaiming The Word of God.
Great for decorating kids rooms
and hospital rooms
and prison cells
and...

Two Books and stuff about Jesus and His Word
collected over the years.

If you read "Love is Rising" in the book,
let me know what you think.

It's for folks dealing with a broken heart
and feeling unworthy. Yes even believers.
They're not able to love and accept themselves
as Christ loves and accepts them.

They think they have to be the clay
and the potter. Thanks

Be blessed and be a blessing.

While Brent is busy training missionaries, a blog tour for the Higgins' book, I Would Die for You, has begun. Check it out at

www.writesthoughts.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-would-die-for-you-by-brent-and-deanna.html and


www.3stairs.com/2009/05/26/i-would-die-for-you-by-brent-and-deanna-higgins/

Of course the true prize is the same kind of encouragement in your walk with Christ you receive here. But you can leave a comment at the blog sites and be entered to win a missions gift basket, too!

praying in pink
with tender love,

Marti
