The Brinkman Adventures Review

I am in the car quite a bit taking Funny Bunny back and forth to activities in the afternoons.  We usually pass the time by listening to the radio or music CDs.  Sometimes the CDs are played a little too frequently, if you know what I mean.  I'm always looking for something new and fresh to listen to.  So when I heard about The Brinkman Adventures, I was very interested!  We received The Brinkman Adventures Season 2: Episodes 13-24 to review and I was more than happy to add it to our car play list!

The Brinkman Adventures are stories from the lives of real missionaries, come to life through their many crazy adventures.

The Brinkman Adventures is an action-packed, family friendly audio CD pack. The stories are real, the adventures are exciting, and the intensity will keep you on the edge of your seat. Unless you're in the car. Then you'd just better hold on to your seat belt, because it's gonna be a wild, funny, and Biblical ride through the Brinkman family adventures! There's 12 exciting adventures and 5 hours of fun in this CD pack. Here are a few of the stories.

The Mystery Ring: One of the Brinkman boys finds a gold class ring while diving and doesn't know whose it is. He and his brother decide to sell it to earn money to buy expensive curriculum to donate. As the auction runs, they discover that the ring's owner is John Benti, former missionary in Hong Kong. Can they call off the auction and get the ring to Mr. Benti before the auction closes?

Blue Hat & T-Shirt Bible: The Brinkmans are staying with the Bentis before they go to Mexico. While they're there, Mr. Benti tells them a story about his mission work in Hong Kong. He and his partner are trying to find at least one Christian in Hong Kong, and it isn't easy. Their only chance is to go to Guilin, but their flight is cancelled by the storms. Desperate, they attempt to find a place on a booked train, when a mysterious Chinese woman with a blue hat and an English accent helps them. Once there, they offer a young girl some perfume in return for a Christian. She leads them to a Christian woman, whom is strong in faith and wants more then anything a Bible. But the police burn every Bible they find. How can they manage a Bible for the woman with little time left?

How Big is Your God: Mr. Benti tells the Brinkmans another story from his mission work. While he was an assistant helper, and had to do what the head missionaries said, John Benti and his missionary team needed a building to plant a church in. Everywhere they look, nobody wants missionaries to use their buildings for a church. All seems hopeless, until Mr. Benti hears about a kindergarten building in need of a school program and teacher. Mr. Benti says that he thinks that would be perfect, especially as the current owner is a Christian, but they don't have the money and the head missionaries are not willing to take that risk. Mr. Benti is still convinced that God will provide the money if they just sign the paper. A little later when Mr. Benti is head missionary, he heads straight back to the kindergarten to buy the building, though they still don't have the money. Will a miracle happen to let them buy the kindergarten? Will Mr. Benti be able to realize how big his God really is?

And there are many more exciting adventures in The Brinkman Adventures Season 2!

Funny Bunny's Favorite Story: Blue Hat & T-Shirt Bible

My Thoughts:  I think The Brinkman Adventures are wonderfully exciting stories for families of all ages. The episodes span the globe and give the listener a glimpse of the real life adventures of a missionary family. These episodes have sparked conversations between Funny Bunny and I about missionaries, life in other countries, and ways we can spread the Gospel ourselves.

Find Out More:  You can find out more online at The Brinkman Adventures. The Brinkman Adventures Season 2: Episodes 13-24 includes 4 CDs, 12 episodes, and over five hours of audio.  These are stories for all ages.

The suggested donation for the physical CD set is $25 and $17 for the MP3 Album.  Shipping is free.  If you can't afford the suggested price or want to donate more, there is a separate ordering button.  They do not want money to stand in the way of families being able to download this set.
