Daniel and Susan Brock
On April 2, 2014 we moved to Kigoma, Tanzania from our previous term in Niger, West Africa with Wycliffe. We are registered as BrockMinistries here and are beginning a boat ministry around the beautiful Lake Tanganyika. Our purpose is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost, and those in need of hope and salvation, as well as to support those already there with the same calling. We covet your prayers and support. Our website will have monthly postings with pictures to keep you updated on all that God is doing with us and through us. Please visit us often at www.brockministries.com
Mission: To serve Jesus and to share the Good News to those in need in East Africa and Lake Tanganyika's many surrounding villages of Burundi, Tanzania, Zambia, and the Congo.
SIL Base Tree Cutting Day
It has been a dear while since we have posted, but there is no denying that our time in Africa, first in Niger and then in Burundi and Tanzania were life transforming. So many sweet memories with the beloved Africans and the tireless missionaries that we served with. Here are a couple of fun videos in memory of our time there...I sincerely hope that some day we are privileged to return again...just look at the glow in Daniel's face as he lives at "home" from a place that has always been home to him. Africa.
SIL Base Tree Cutting Day
11 For I know the plans that I [h]have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
I think the key might lie in praying to and seeking Him with all our hearts.
[11/17/15] Praying for our leaders, praying for America, the home of the free. Praying for our fellow Christians, followers of Christ.
This time home from Africa has been a wonderful, divine wilderness time for Daniel and I. We are in the wilderness with joy, waiting on Him, growing in Him, growing together as we incline our ears to what He is teaching us. It's a season of peace, joy, and rest. He is preparing us for more as we grow in our intimacy with Jesus. He has another wonderful season ahead for us, and we are preparing as we wait on and listen to His Voice. He is using a multitude of people and messages to encourage us in this season to drive us closer to the Lord in our love relationship with him. We are so excited to see where He will use us next! Listen, wait, let Him teach you, let Him love you and comfort you.
[08/12/15] Though we are no longer serving in Africa, we are keeping this page open to share some of the wonderful experiences we had in Niger, Burundi, and Tanzania...for now, it seems, God has us here back in California, and we are blessed to be close to family and parents. Many, many people prayed for us and financially supported our two year mission, and we are eternally grateful. We learned so much, and gave it all we had, and hope to continue on here doing the same! Pray for Africa.
[12/28/14] We now embark on a journey of another sort, as this next year comes into play. The true test is to see and understand that we are truly Kingdom children. Are we able to understand that concept and want to live for a King who has given us His salvation and life…sonship? Are we willing to heal hearts through His love, to reach out to others, and not hold back His encouraging words to them? Do we desire to comfort others and bring them closer and closer to the Kingdom of God? Let us realize that this is the greatest act of love. As this New Year comes, take this challenge, and love others into the Kingdom of God. Happy New Year!
Pray for us for God's provision for the "Big Boat!"
Thank you for your prayers!
"We are living in a culture that resists the notion of absolute truth…of absolute anything for that matter. The tragic results are seen all around us. This is no time for a deliberate softening of truth, to make Christianity more palatable to unbelievers. What strange thinking? That thought would never have crossed (Apostle) Paul's mind. Nor should it cross ours." Charles Swindoll on the Life of Paul
May our testimony to His love, grace, and forgiveness be bold, unashamed, for it IS the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes! Romans 1:16
[09/12/14] "And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True…He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God." Rev 19:11,13

[11/10/13] Daniel and I just had the nicest church time/fellowship and dinner with Heather, Derek, and Graham! These are amazingly smart and humble theologians from Ireland and Scotland helping our translators with a "check" as they say for translation accuracy. They are the sweetest, funniest folks, such a pleasure to meet!
[08/26/13] Daniel and I are heading back to the states in three days for the month of September to visit family, and be with Stephanie and Shawn for the birth of their baby boy, the first "new life" in our entire family!
