Welcome to the Blessing Broker podcast, I’m David, and I’m Denise, and we’re so glad that you joined us. We wanted to take a minute and share what Blessing Broker is and why it’s so important for you to be the blessing.
About two years ago, Denise and I started New Branch Ministries International, the name probably doesn’t mean anything to you. Well, it didn’t to one of our friends either but I tried to explain, hey it comes from Romans chapters 9 and 11 about bearing much fruit and being grafted in and blah blah blah… she just wasn’t getting it so she said, tell me what do you do, and I said, well we work as Blessing Brokers. Okay, I can get my mind around that…
So what we do is Initiate, Oversee, and then Report on special projects that bless Israel and the persecuted church around the world. Now, that might sound like a big thing, but it’s really just a God Thing. What we do is identify where God is moving, pray about it, join him in this work, and then we just smile, laugh, and dance with joy as He shows up. We’re so excited about being able to give away half a million dollars in the past two years and we are looking forward to seeing what’s next.
We don’t know what tomorrow holds but we have been encouraged by our board of directors to go live, go public, do newsletters, podcasts, communicate. Basically, the bottom line is that they want us to communicate and, although we’re not really comfortable doing that, we’re going to give it our best shot and we hope that you will enjoy and will be encouraged, but most importantly we hope that you will be a blessing to others. Now we’ve come up with a little acronym called B.L.E.S.S.
- Believe God and His promises.
- Lifting up each other by giving living water and clean water by digging wells and providing life straws.
- Equipping the church to participate in serving in your own community where you are and have the opportunity to participate in.
- Serving around the world.
- Sending others out to be missionaries on short-term trips.
We’re also really excited about this: with COVID and a lot of changes with technology, we now have an opportunity to do virtual mission trips. In about an hour from your own living room or your office on your lunch break, you can participate in a short-term mission.
It takes about a week or two to prepare but once you have prayed up and you have done the groundwork for the week prior, you will be able to work with our partners who have boots on the ground in Israel, Pakistan, India, Yemen, Uganda and a growing number of other places to go on a short-term mission and be the blessing. So stay tuned for that. We hope that you will reach out to us connect with us, we would love to hear from you.
You can connect with us through our website first and foremost which is BlessingBroker.com. At the bottom of the first page which is our homepage, you can sign up for our newsletter. You can also find us through Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and all of those links are on our website. We’re also on Youtube which we will have growing video content coming soon there.
You can also go to BlessingBags.Life for your own Blessing Bag. This is a drawstring Backpack that has a number of contents that you can give to the homeless person on the corner holding up that sign, to a friend in need, somebody in the hospital, or carry it in your car and just have it ready to give as the Lord leads. We pack our bags with a water bottle, hygiene items, tissues, a great first aid kit, some nutrition bars, and an emergency thermal blanket that helps for both warm and cold weather. Then the last thing is a booklet with I double-dog dare you to read this on the cover, which is simply the Book of John in a portable little pocket testament. We look forward to hearing from you, so drop us a line or share a prayer request/praise report.
We’ll see you next time, thank you for listening to the Blessing Broker Podcast, stay tuned for future content and episodes coming soon. This is David and Denise, go out and be the blessing, God bless you all, goodbye!
