Hope For Tomorrow
My name is Brandon Smith and I am 36 years of age. I am a United States Marine, college graduate (B.S. in Business Management), and former semi-pro football player. I am originally from a small town in Alabama and have lived in Nashville over 12 ½ years. My parents are Richard and Jannie and I have one younger brother, Brett, that is like a best friend. I have been attending Brentwood Baptist since 2008 and was part of the Ave South launch team.
Before taking my current traveling position, I taught preschoolers and co-taught a life group at Ave South. Previously, I have taught children and preschoolers, small groups, led during several VBS and backyard Bible clubs, and taught at Special Friends Camp. I have been part of 4 domestic mission journeys to Montana and 3 foreign mission journeys (Haiti, Cape Town, and Guatemala). For two years, I served breakfast at the Nashville Rescue Mission and during the second year, served as part of Kairos leadership team leading groups to serve there. While attending Kairos, I served in multiple capacities and partnered with Copper River Basin Crisis Center on two different occasions. For nearly a decade, I served as part of several Praise and Worship bands.
I am currently working as a medical equipment installer nationwide. Previously, I have been a warehouse manager, inventory control supervisor, IT equipment installer in the US and Canada, a security officer/supervisor, and held several positions in the medical field.
Pray for Brandon to transition well as he moves and gets settled into the local culture.
Pray that God will prepare and open the hearts of the people in Guatemala for hearing the word of God.
Pray for language acquisition as Brandon studies and learns Spanish.
Pray for all the children and workers involved with Hope for Tomorrow Children's Home.
