Flowers of grace in the midst of the mess

SÃO JOSÉ DOS CAMPOS, Brazil (BNC) — Over the past two months, the team of Forthright / GoSpeak has been transferring most of its websites to a new hosting service. The process has not been without bumps.

On the BNC site, none of the photos or images survived the transfer. Some of the latest stories also disappeared into cyberspace.

Online Christian journalism is a blessing in many ways, but adds extra burdens in other ways, especially when the work is divided among a few.

In the midst of these transfers our BNC family has had deaths of close family members, serious accidents, extended travel, congregational challenges, and other large occupiers of time and energy.

As this move nears conclusion, we wanted to reaffirm our commitment to bringing you exclusive stories of saints and congregations that will strengthen your faith and encourage you in your spiritual journey.

We pray that the mess we create and even the old pieces left behind will still serve as fertile ground for the grace of God to flower.

Randal and his wife Vicki have lived and worked in Brazil since Nov. 1984. They have three children, two daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren. He likes to read novels in his back-porch hammock. http://randal.us

  1. I can appreciate the hard work. I recently merged two sites and managed to save almost everything. Is this a WordPress blog?

    I am very thankful that those who have given the expertise are willing to sacrifice their personal time to make this possible. The majority of the stories on this site I find encoura ging and uplifting and they all cause me to reflect on the word and the living word that walked among men for so short a time. Over two thousand years ago and his impact is just as powerful as it was when he walked with us. My thanks and gratiude to all who sacrifice to makethis possible. In Christ Bill Cartwright

    • Bill, thanks for your comment. It causes us to feel like we’re having some success in our objectives. You’re very kind.

  3. Not always an easy trouble free task but worthwhile. You always bless me here in the UK and your good work for the Lord is much appreciated. Our prayers are with you. To God be the glory.
