Some attribute the quote to Confucius. Others cite Mark Twain. Either way, you’ve probably heard it before, “If you love your job, you’ll never have to work a day in your life.” That’s kind of the story with Brigada. We don’t really consider it work. Sure, it helps if we can keep up with the bills of paying for a dedicated server, firewall, enterprise internet connectivity, backup service, and the cost of a part-time assistant. But maybe you’ve noticed – we have thus far refused even the idea of splashing flashy ads all over the landing page at We refuse ads partly because we don’t want to have to worry about what some advertiser might be hawking. But we also just like it that it looks clean and simple. If you believe in the Great Commission and the cause of Brigada (since 1995), this last edition of 2023 is a great time to pitch in toward costs. We only need $6800. Want to help connect the dots? Just browse to and click “Donate.” The moment we hit the total budget needs ($17,000), we’ll instantly stop talking about finances and move on with more mission mobilization, trends, resources, and opportunities. God bless you for considering!!!
