January 2013, a book is coming out by my friend Brad Guice. Brad is a renowned photographer in our country, who is soon to be ordained, and will be pastoring in New Jersey. His book is entitled,
"The Call to Missions, Living the Book of Acts."

He has contributions from many missionaries around the world.

I was first introduced to Brad through a friend named Pat Davila. She was a blogger on this site, whose heart was moved by BJ's plight.

Brad called me early on, after BJ's death. He was working on this project and wanted to use our story. We wanted him to as well, but the timing was wrong. We were working on "I Would Die for You," and our agent was concerned about overlap.

We were disappointed.

However, God had a plan.

Brad's book was held up in production for various reasons. Years passed.

Two years ago, we talked once again, and had the green light to contribute. We are so blessed and very thankful for Brad's journey's and testimony. His story is powerful, of being delivered from drugs. He served under the late Pastor David Wilkerson.

Brad has traveled and photographed the world. You will see his pictures on emotional display in this book. He truly has the ability to cause a stirring in one's heart, with his giftedness.

Brad may be transitioning out of professional photography (which is how he has earned his living) and into full time ministry.

I've had the privilege of an advance electronic copy of his book. It is quite amazing!

I was privileged to author one of the pages, beside one of his photographs. Humbling!

One of the things that moves me most, are the two pages in the back with quotes from missionaries and martyrs.

BJ has a quote that is nestled between William Booth (founder of Salvation Army) and William Carey! In fact, there are quotes from CS Lewis, CT Studd, Mother Teresa, David Livingstone, John Wesley, Hudson Taylor, Charles Spurgeon and others.

Because of a "kernel of wheat," the Lord is being glorified!

Deanna and I count ourselves blessed and thankful for how God continues to use surrendered lives, even when the cost is very great.

Please purchase this book, "The Call to Missions, Living the Book of Acts." You won't be disappointed! As a matter of fact, click on this link and go reserve your copy now!

Hi Brent,

I heard BJ's story after listening to the MercyMe song, and that led me to your blog.

Thanks for posting so candidly and for being so real about the compromise that is so common in my generation of believers. (I think I'm about the same age as your daughters.) I struggle too, but foremost in my mind is the perfect sacrificial love of my Saviour and how I want to live a life that he enjoys.

Guess this is just my way of saying thank you to your family for demonstrating a faith that's lived. I know it's painful to see the way my generation is going, but please know you're not alone in praying for it and that some of us are so very thankful for your prayers.

Hello. I go to Lexington Christian Academy in Lexington, Kentucky and we, as the 8th grade, are reading "I Would Die For You" and honestly all I can say is "wow." You and BJ's story is so incredible. You as a family have influenced me in so many ways. My relationship with Christ is so much stronger now that I've read your book. I want you to know that you raised BJ so very well. I know you are so proud of him and you should be. I am praying for your family because I know it still hurts. But, as you already have, still need to lean on God because He will always be there for you. And I know that BJ is smiling down from Heaven at you and saying, "Look how incredible my family is. Look how they have used my life and death to further Your kingdom God. My family is amazing." Thank you-so much. You have no idea how this book has changed my life forever. ~Rachel Vineyard

I read "i would die for you" recently, and it changed my life! since i read it, i have started sharing the gospil to people all over the world. i haven't been doing this by going all over the world, i have been doing this over the internet. i even lead someone to Christ. if BJ was still here, i'd be thanking him for being a great insperation!

My name is Joshua and I am the youth & family pastor at First Christian Church in Washington, Iowa.

I read your book, "I Would Die For You" when it first came out and was greatly inspired. I am now taking our teen Sunday School class through the book and hoping to inspire them to be as committed to Christ as BJ was.

Then...I started thinking how great it would be if we could have you guys come and speak to the church after the teens finish with the book. I tried to search through this blog for some kind of contact to reach you guys through but couldn't find one.

I don't know if you still do speaking engagements or how much the cost would be...but if you are willing or interested please let me know. I can be reached by email at or in the church office at (319)653-3881.

God bless and thank you so much for sharing your family's testimony with the rest of the body of Christ.

When Brad told me he was writing the book on missions, I knew a true missionary,"BJ" had to be in it. I had printed out ur blogs for Brad, at least 30 pages as he was about to get on a plane for a missions trip. I knew once he read his story, Bj would be apart of his book.Bj's voice will always be heard

Dear Higgins Family,

I just finished "I would Die for you." It still challenged me, even though it's been about 10 years since his death. My parents and I actually live in Asia, as Missionaries. I thought the book looked boring when it was sitting on our shelf, but, boy, was I wrong! I am so glad I finally picked it up to read!

I felt called to missions about the same age that BJ did. This has really encouraged me to go through with it, and lit the fire under me to dive into His word and share his truth. I hope to be a travelling nurse one day.

I can't wait to meet BJ in heaven! Thank you for the book and this blog. It is amazing!

sorry. I cannot post my full name for security reasons. :-)
