My name is Brooke and I am from Southern Maine, USA. Blessed to be raised in my large, loving Christian family, I learned how to listen to the voice and call of God. In my teenage years, the Lord revealed to me that I had a call to full-time ministry ahead of me. I attended Faith Bible College International in Charleston, Maine to be readied and equipped for the work He would have me do for His Kingdom. During this process, a love for the Middle East was stirred in my heart and would not let me go. I attended a vision trip in 2019 and lived overseas in 2022 gaining cross-cultural experience. Now, in 2023, I am embracing opportunities to gain experience, build connections, and serve those God wants to touch. I am excited for all that God is going to do and is doing in and through me during these years in the Middle East.

“Clear a road through the desert for Adonai! Level a highway in the desert for our God!
Let every valley be filled in, every mountain and hill lowered,
the bumpy places made level and the crags become a plain.
Then the glory of Adonai will be revealed; all humankind together will see it,
for the mouth of Adonai has spoken.”
Isaiah 40:3-5

To the Jew First…

I seek to build bridges between Christians and Jews. Paul says in Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the Good News, since it is God’s powerful means of bringing salvation to everyone who keeps on trusting, to the Jew especially, but equally to the Gentile.” The Lord has given me a heart full of love for His Chosen People, the Jews. This leads me to spending additional time in Israel serving Jewish immigrants and worshiping God alongside them. My love for them is unconditional and continual. Even those who are determined to reject the message of the Gospel and Messiah deserve to experience His love regardless of their choices, because that is how He loves us.

…but equally to the Gentile.

90% of foreign missionaries work among already reached people groups. 10% work among unreached people groups. 86% of all unreached people groups lie within the region called the 10/40 window, which is between 10 and 40 degrees north and from the west coast of Africa to the east coast of Asia.* I am of the 10% of missionaries that has chosen to take up the call to preach the Gospel to those in the unreached portions of the world. The good news of the Gospel must be preached to all unreached peoples in order for Christ to return and establish His Kingdom. Therefore, I am taking opportunities for outreach within the Middle East and Mediterranean Basin serving refugees and sharing the Gospel.


What does “Nahal” mean in Nahal Ministries?

Nahal is the Hebrew word for a brook. Loosely based off of my own English name, there are many meanings for a person named “brook.” Usually the meaning is simple, like a small stream of water. But brooks are known to be peaceful, refreshing, and sometimes there’s a bit of babbling going on. Sometimes when you look up the meaning of the name “Brooke” it can mean peacemaker. I strive to build bridges and be an ambassador of peace like my namesake. Therefore, I gave the work I do the name of which focuses on my goal. Peace. Shalom. Jesus said…

“But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:14

Why Israel?
Is Israel an Unreached country?

According to The Joshua Project,

Israel has a total of 49 people groups, 38 of these groups are Unreached People groups which makes up 77.6%. The total population of Israel is an estimated 8,944,000. 97% of the population (8,675,000) make up the 38 unreached groups in Israel.

Israel may have the highest percentage of Christian tourism in the world, but that does not mean this country is open to field workers or easy to share the Gospel in. 192 pioneer missionary workers are needed to reach Jews, Arabs, and Armenians in Israel. It is not possible to acquire a work-visa in Israel to stay, live, and serve making it necessary to rely on funding to do so. Acquiring a visa to Israel is also difficult. Israel is a closed country to “missionaries” which comes to a surprise to most Christians. I seek to come alongside those regardless of their beliefs to support them with the love of Jesus. This is not based on whether they accept Jesus or not, as it is important to build relationships rather than proselytize. As a Torah-following believer, I wish to come to their level and serve God with them.

“The Jews have a wonderful understanding of their connection with the Abrahamic covenant. However, they also have a history of rejection of Jesus Christ as Messiah, the one who has fulfilled that covenant.”

“Throughout their history, the Jews have been discriminated against and persecuted. They need to experience emotional healing and forgiveness. Pray that as the Gospel is shared with them, it will not be viewed as anti-Semitic, but rather as the fulfillment of what God promised humanity through Abraham centuries ago. Also pray for a spiritual hunger among the Jews who view their “Jewishness” as an ethnic identity and have no religious affiliation.”
-The Joshua Project

Please consider watching Frontier Alliance International‘s Covenant and Controversy documentary series to understand Israel’s relevance to today and the End Times. I am grateful for the training experience I’ve had with FAI for their frontier training program in 2022.

Fall 2023 Update

This fall, 2023, I am relocating my home base from Southern Maine to Southern Alabama. The Lord has led me into a season of preparation. Although I am going to miss the Middle East and Mediterranean, I know that He is going to bring me back soon. For now, I will continue to study the language of my targeted area, focus on my health, raise support, build connections, and become licensed in ministry for tax and visa purposes. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter to receive updates on my progress and when I will be serving overseas again! Even though I will be on the homefront for awhile, I am still planning short-term trips as the Lord knows my heart in wanting to be overseas far more than home. In fact, overseas is my home! If you have not received my summer newsletter, please contact me so you are up-to-date with all the work the Lord did in and through me during my summer trip on the Field.
