The Brinkman Adventures are radio dramas. Each episode tells an exciting missionary tale through the adventures of the Brinkman family. These stories are a true picture of missionary life in modern times. Season six includes six episodes. Total run time is right around two hours, a perfect length for a short road trip or listen to an episode while driving across town to your appointments. We as a family have spent many hours listening to audio dramas and audio books, and the Brinkman Adventures are always a favorite!
My son's favorite episodes in this season were the first two episodes about the Dutch Underground because they were the most exciting for him. He couldn't wait to find out what happened next. It was all about the Brinkman's great grandparents. They had to choose to save themselves from the Nazi's or risk their own lives to save others. Secret codes and smuggling people to save their lives keeps the listener riveted. In one part of the episode, a couple of people had to hide in a bundle of hay for several long days in the freezing cold. One person who escaped from Auschwitz, died in a hospital a day later because of the extreme conditions. I think this was a very riveting and eye opening story for him to listen to. He listened through the entire season twice. Every morning he would be excited to tell me the latest that had happened. And at one point even woke up in the middle of the night to finish listening to the season!
