I have attended many churches in my lifetime, but have never witnessed the power that Brooks has. I attended the church regularly prior to the split, witnessed the hardships the church went through, and have seen what a difference GOD can make through one man. I, myself, have since been baptised and voted in as a member of the church and praise GOD that he was able to help our church rise again. Brooks has made such a difference in so many lives, including mine. It is hard to belive that someone so young can have so much wisdom, guidance, and power!

It's really disappointing how little credit religion gives to mankind. Why can't we do good things without it being some divine intervention that caused us to do good. Maybe it's simply hard work, thought, and definitive skill? Just a thought for you to think on.

I have been going to church my whole life and my husband and I just starting going to Umatilla and BROOKS ROCKS... He is filled with the love of God, you can just see it. And when he starts to speak, you know he is a awesome man.
