      Doors are being opened! And we are especially excited about Character Works International which will work with the Dandelion School in Beijing, China. This summer we plan to introduce and set up a year long Character Training program with the school. I am happy to tell more about this and the other ministries if you are interested. Thanks again. -Chuck

  4. Dear Rhonda and Chuck,
    I don’t know if you realize it, but our son Benjamin was the recipient of the “Jimmy Brazell Servant-Leadership Award” presented after the Texas TeenPact State Class earlier this month. Having known Jimmy personally and admired him greatly, Benjamin was very humbled to receive this unexpected honor. He waited until he got home to tell us about it, and Doug and I both cried when he showed us the award. Since that time, I have observed in Ben a deep desire to walk in a manner worthy of this accolade. But, then, Jimmy’s life and testimony has that effect on most of the folks who knew and loved him, doesn’t it? His devotion to God and his enthusiasm for serving others was a beautiful thing to behold and a life-challenge to the rest of us.

      Thank you so much Jennifer. I cried as well when I heard of how Ben had served and received this special award. I know Jimmy would be so humbled and honored to know that he is remembered through the service of his friend. Keep shining, Ben!

    I miss you, Jimmy, and am so blessed to have known you. You have impacted my life in so many ways, I couldn’t name them all. I wear these shoes that I call Jimmys and have written things about him on them. There have been people who have asked me, “What’s on your shoes?” I’ve been able to share Jimmy’s life and some of what he believed with other people who have never met him. People that I meet who have heard of Jimmy’s life through other people have been so taken aback and inspired like myself. Thank you so much for this website. It really is amazing.
    I really enjoyed celebrating Jimmy’s birthday yesterday and sending off the balloons.
