We enjoyed joining the Brinkman Adventures when we listened to Season 6: Underground Rising.
Before I tell you all about Season 6, I want to give you some background information on me. You see, I am a real Corrie ten Boom fan. She was a true hero during World War II, hiding Jews and working with the Dutch Resistance.
Knowing this about me, you have to realize that I was absolutely thrilled that the topic was the Dutch Resistance during World War II.
Let me make a few things clear about Brinkman Adventures Season 6: the acting is awesome, the screen writing is excellent, and the story catches you up into the excitement of World War II.
My favorite part was the way the story started with the children visiting their grandmother. She begins to tell the story of her brave husband, her courageous friends, and herself fighting the Nazis during World War II. Every once in awhile she reappears in the story to make a comment or explain something more clearly. This made the story so much more personal.
This radio show is based on a true story. In fact, I was so excited to see on the Real Stories pages of the website supplemental information on each episode. We saw photos of Reng and Lynn VanKesteren and learned more about the main characters in the radio episode. I love the picture and saved the link so I can listen to a podcast with the couple later. How exciting!
The Real Stories page also contained a recipe for oliebollen, or Dutch doughnuts. For each of the other episodes 56-60, there is information and a link to a podcast to listen to.
In fact, I found the podcast page on the Brinkman Adventures website. Lots of great podcasts to listen to. You can listen to them here.
I loved listening to the entire season. First, I listened to part I & II of "The Dutch Underground."
Next, I listened to "Twice Born Fly." This was an interesting story. It kept my attention, but I was curious throughout the whole story of where it was going. I was so excited that the other prisoner turned out to be a prince. Ah, got it! I thought there was a Gospel message somewhere. I loved the story. It was a unique look at the Gospel. Dad explained it at the end. I love to hear the Gospel preached in any way possible. So I felt so excited and happy! My favorite part: when the little boy becomes a Christian.
I felt so built up in my faith by this audio. I love to hear the Gospel and remember that I am saved by grace through faith.
By now, I was really impressed with Brinkman Adventures.
"I Wonder Why" was the next audio I listened to. This was very emotional for me because my daughter and her best friend both lost a baby last summer. I loved that the couple was hurting and so they drew away to seek God. That touched me so deeply. What a beautiful picture of finding our comfort and strength in the Lord. Then the family heads to the mission field to work in an orphanage. It was exciting to listen to a radio show with a family that is so kind to one another and loves Jesus.
The last two episodes of Brinkman Adventures season 6, "Free Burma Rangers" I & II were exciting. The story followed the life of a missionary kid who grew up to serve in the military, rescuing lives. As time went on, God called him to be a missionary, serving in an unique way in Burma. Amazing story!
It was super easy to listen to the digital version. After purchasing the audio drama, we were emailed a link. We followed the link to download the audios.
I stored them in a file folder in my laptop. Luckily, there is plenty of room for more audios i hope to buy in the future.
