Eddie & Barbie Broussard (Global) -
Praise - In November, Eddie was one of the main speakers for over 800 collegiate Navigators. He worked with a painter, David Stickel, to preach & paint the theme, "Know, Trust, Love: Basics of Devotion to Christ." David painted this artist's perspective how God, as the sovereign and fatherly "Potter," works in the clay of our lives.

Praise - Six men graduated in May. One is headed to the mountains to pastor a church of a mix of Indigenous Indians, Mestizos and Mexicans. One is pastoring a church he started while in our program, one is leading a ministry, one is teaching Bible, one is ministering at the federal prison south of town to three groups of the cartel, and one is ministering in his new job. He has led the boss's son to the Lord and convinced him to use the leftover vegetables they sell to feed the poor.
