Passing on the Calling

Reading Time: < 1 minutedramatic portrait of a little homeless boyMy name is Bran.  I went to Belarus and Russia with Operation Carelift (and later GAiN) many times over.  The Lord used those trips in so many ways in my life.  He planted a love for the Russian people—especially her orphans—in my heart, as well as a love for missions. And used that time in my life to call me into full time ministry.  I have been a pastor since 2005 and see how the Lord used what he originally called Mr. McDowell to in 1991, to call me.


Josh facilitated some truly amazing ministry that I saw not only change the hearts of many Russians for eternity, but the hearts of many Americans as well.
