Brinkman Adventures - TOS Review

The Brinkman Adventures combines two things that we enjoy -- missionary stories and audio dramas. We were recently given an opportunity to review Brinkman Adventures Season 3.

Brinkman Adventures Season 3 Review
The Brinkman Adventures is a radio drama series combining the "wacky adventures of a big family and mix them with exciting, true stories of modern-day Christian heroes".  These are based on real events in missionaries lives. Each season has 12 episodes that are about 25 minutes long each so there are hours of stories to listen to.

Listening to missionary stories is beneficial in so many ways. As we listen to the stories, our faith can be challenged and deepened to trust God more. We hear ways that God is working around the world, we are reminded of God's power.  We are also reminded of our calling to "Go into all the world." As we listen to missionary stories, we can know more how to pray for missionaries.

For this review we received the downloadable MP3 of Season 3 which included episodes 25 to 36. It was easy to download and then put in the iPod so we were ready to listen to the stories. These are also available on CD.

Brinkman Adventures Season 3 Review

The stories in Season 3 include the following:
  • God's Mule
  • Mountain Mover
  • The Silent Ambassador
  • Translating Trouble
  • Man-Up
  • Acorns & Oaks
  • A Saint's Story 2 parts
  • Untouched
  • Busy Bees and a Bullhorn
  • Missionary Tourist 2 parts
This is the first time that we have listened to Brinkmann Adventures. While it is Season 3, you can easy begin here and enjoy the stories without having to start at Season 1 or just get Season 1, 2, and 3 and have lots of stories to listen to.

This was perfect for evenings while we were working on projects in the school area, we listened to the stories. I worked on cutting fabric for sewing, Miss K was threading buttons and J was busy with a project. We all listened together. I enjoyed The SilentAmbassador and will admit I was a bit teary-eyed as I listened the story and realising how God worked and gave confidence to one young girl to be able to obey his leading in her life. J liked Translating Trouble, listening to the challenges that the missionaries faced and how in that they turned to God and how God worked. Miss K enjoyed the story and asked all kinds of questions as she was trying to understand. I think we were all challenged. 

One of the features of these stories that I really enjoyed is found on the website and that is the story behind the story. There they have bits of the real story, they tell parts of the story that the drama was based on. I enjoyed reading about Thomas who was willing to sacrifice so much to obey God. He took risks to do what God wanted him to do. He went when no one else would go. 

Season 3 as well as the other seasons can be purchased from Brinkman Adventures
