Invisible Children showed how powerful media can be in casting a vision for the world’s need. Their film and ministry inspired me. And so, for about five years I’ve been dreaming about how to use the media to help a new generation get excited about what God is doing in the world.
 
Mostly to this point, I’ve failed (I described what we hoped to do in some initial blog posts). While our first effort at a pilot in the aftermath of a Peruvian earthquake showed promise, ultimately, we were unsuccessful. But, along the way, we’ve learned important lessons.
 
A year ago, I spotted Daniel Durick on the World Race. Daniel used his experience with ABC to tell the story of his race. Last year while on the race, we bandied ideas back and forth and ultimately came up with another trial balloon, this time beginning on the wildest island in the world – Papua New Guinea. The video above shows the story that we want to tell (a friend of mine who grew up there).
 
We’re going to take a small group of guys initially and build from there. And if we’re successful, we’ll tell a series of other stories like it (and perhaps start a media ministry especially for women).
 
Here’s a description of the ministry (called Brothers Abroad) we hope to build to launch it:
Brothers Abroad partners with Christian missionaries in some of the most remote locations around the globe. With each unique mission trip, a video crew travels along with the team of young men chronicling and documenting the mission.
 
A three- to five-minute webisode is released on a weekly basis that updates supporters about the team’s journey to the ministry site, life with the locals and their progress on the mission field. The weekly format allows family, friends, partners, supporters and fans in America to stay connected with the team and encourages interaction with the men as they serve the Lord abroad.

The first BA mission trip takes place in a mountain village in West Papua where the team partners with American missionary, John Cutts, and the Moni Tribe. The team takes construction equipment with them in order to assist in the completion of an airstrip/runway in the middle of the jungle. 
So, what do you think? Give us your thoughts – we’re eager for feedback. We’re taking applications for four spots on  the team. If you’re interested, please email Daniel directly: info@brothersabroad.tv
