Featured Missionary: Russell and Janet Brinkley

February 01, 2015 at 8:44 PM

Each week, FBCK features a different missionary family to learn about and pray for. This week's missionary family is Russell and Janet Brinkley of Perth, Scotland.

Russell and Janet Brinkley serve as missionaries in Perth, Scotland. Perth is a bustling city of about 50,000 people in central Scotland. The Brinkleys have been on the field for almost seven years. Their mission, Bible Baptist Church of Perth, currently meets in a rented room at a local community center. The group is small but faithful, and is becoming well-established in the community.

This is “Super Bowl Sunday,” and the Brinkleys have a football connection. In the spring, Russell will be coaching an American-style football team in Perth. This will be the first American Football program of any type in the city, and he was asked by the city counsel to head it up. He starts recruiting teen boys for the program this month, with practices beginning in March. The program will provide a great opportunity for the Brinkleys to meet many youth and their parents, and to have a Christian influence on those that would otherwise have no interest in the things of God.
