We’d like to introduce a young couple who have been interested in missions most of their lives. Beka grew up as a missionary kid in Bolivia and Josh, who grew up at GBC, has been a passionate participant in numerous domestic and international missions trips. Through a series of God- ordained encounters, the Holbrooks have linked up with Equip International, an organization that both sends and prepares missionaries for the challenges of serving overseas. Equip offers training in medical evangelism, agricultural development, water resourcing, and other areas. Their classes are available to a wide variety of churches and organizations. The technical training that Equip offers to field-based missionaries helps them become more effective communicators of the “good news” of Jesus. Beka works the administrative side of the ministry and Josh helps with the training. Both are involved in helping to maintain the operation of the Equip training center in North Carolina. In April they gave birth to Chava, an enthusiastic baby girl. To help cover their financial needs, Josh has been teaching part-time at a local community college. Josh and Beka covet your prayer support. You can follow their ministry at HolbrookVentures.Wordpress.com.
