A Letter from David Blakeslee

Many years ago, I began receiving stories and testimonies of extraordinary happenings.

Healings, near-death experiences, reversed infertility, deliverance from addiction(s), reconciliations, and a host of other things. I wasn’t looking for them, but one after another, they flowed like a stream, and then as a torrent — they came my way.

What a blessing to hear what I now call God things. What do you do when something you’re not exactly looking for keeps dropping in your lap or prodding you? Whether we realize it or not, “God things” are all around us. What do you do with them? Do you just “go with the flow?” Would you investigate? Would you dismiss it, as I’ve done so many times? What if you were called to act on the prodding from within your unique interest or from what some call “destiny,” “fate,” or “Divine guidance?” Somewhere in our mind or soul, we must acknowledge that there’s a higher power at work inviting us into something else, something better; to be a blessing to someone else.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve dropped the ball so many times on following the lead on a blessing story. But as I did act on some of them, life’s trajectory dramatically changed for good!

The story of Blessing Broker is no exception and one I love to tell…

As a Technical Designer in the field of Mechanical Engineering, I was trained to look at details from many different angles. What works? How does it work? How can it be improved? Does the tooling need to be changed? What are the inherent limitations and opportunities? And so on. Little did I know that my training and occupation would lead me to analyze organizations and “charities.” Through a long string of seemingly unconnected events, I stumbled upon a stack of magazines from a ministry I knew nothing about. I read one magazine and immediately recognized that this organization was blessed by the inspiration, direction, and Word of God. So, I spent several hours researching their public 990 tax reports, articles, reviews, and other reports of this particular ministry. When I found their stewardship to be exceptional, I prayed, “Lord, increase my income so that I may give to this organization.”

Three days after learning of this ministry, the one-and-only Representative just happened to sit next to me in a Starbucks and randomly struck up a conversation. BOOM! By God’s grace, a job that I wasn’t looking for dropped in my lap and changed my life. Many people reading this know exactly what I’m talking about.

For two years now, as we pray and practice faithful stewardship, we continue to experience the economic truth that you cannot outgive God.

When the chapter ended at that ministry, my wife, Denise, and I strongly felt that it was time to start Blessing Broker®. On July 1st, 2019 we began by sending a love offering, together with others, to friends who are doing great work in Israel. They visit some of the 200,000 remaining Holocaust Survivors. As soon as we sent the check, another came in the mail for the same amount. We prayed and sent that one out, too. Another unexpected gift arrived more than the one before it. It hasn’t stopped. For two years now, as we pray and practice faithful stewardship, we continue to experience the economic truth that you cannot outgive God.

Up until now, we’ve not produced a newsletter, created a blog roll, sent consistent email updates, or done any intentional communication efforts. That’s all about to change! In future letters, we will share more about how God is providing and prodding us to “broker” the blessings which continue to flow.

We invite you to join us on the journey of prayer, trusting God, and acting on the call of His Holy Spirit to join Him in His work to proclaim the GREAT news of Yeshua until He calls us home.

We simply want to pass on the blessings God has given us. Please keep us in your prayers.

A soul who blesses shall prosper. -Proverbs 11:25
