A typical Brown-family Christmas video…

… what happens every time you try to get your kids to sit still for a picture? Merry Christmas! We hope that you all are having a blessed time of celebrating Christ’s birth this week. We’ve been hearing of the cold and snow back in the States and suppose we shouldn’t mention the sunny 90 degree weather we’ve been having!? As we are winding up 2010, we look back and are so amazed at what God has done in our lives. The biggest piece of news we wanted to tell you is that we had an incredible response to our last update about our financial support needs. Thanks to many of you, we are able to stay on the field through the end of this term (May 2011) when we will be returning for our second “home assignment.” We look forward to hopefully seeing each of you in June or July when we visit our churches and families. As you can see in the video, we just got back from a short trip to Olepishet this week. We’ll tell you more about the cool things happening there in our next update! For now, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Love in Christ, Andy, Lesa, Robbie, Avery, and...

Set Apart: shepherd boys of Lesotho

Almost a year ago, I led the OFM team to Lesotho, the high mountain kingdom in Southern Africa, to shoot and produce 2 films there. This film is about the shepherd boys, a marginalized people group who AIM is trying to reach in a very unique way. Special thanks to Rod Dixon of Daylight Media, who traveled to Lesotho with us, was the cameraman for the production, and helped tremendously with the...

Browns in Africa update – October 2010

Reading emails from us is boring, we know, so we kicked it up a notch and made a video update for you. Please take a (few) minutes to watch this, and please pass on to other missions/Africa minded friends and churches. In summary, we do have some significant and immediate prayer requests: We have been $450/month short on support for long enough that we have exhausted our work funds and are in danger of not having enough to live on next month. Click here for specifics and to get involved. Tomorrow Andy is heading to Tanzania, to the islands in Lake Victoria. Pray for safe travel and for Lesa and the kids at home. A lot is happening with Lesa and our kids and school: broken arms, field trips, drama production at the end of this month. Click here for specifics. We are actively pursuing a medical project vehicle for Olepishet. Click here to read more about Olepishet and how to get involved. Andy is potentially going to be installed as an elder at our church, International Christian Fellowship. Lastly, if you haven’t checked out Andy’s latest video, AIM Identity, watch it...

Water is life

About a year ago I traveled to Korr and Kurungu, Northern Kenya, to produce a film about the nomadic peoples of northern Kenya. When Ted returned from the US in May, he picked up this project which had been sitting on my desk waiting to be edited. I am so glad to see this project completed, finally, and am excited to see what God will do through this video to raise up prayer and mission support for the unique challenges of ministering to nomadic tribes. Korr remains one of my favorite places in Africa, and we are privileged to partner with the church and missionaries there...
