Bradshaw Family Ministry
Bill, Adam, Mia, Allison
“ The harvest is great but the workers are few.”
The Bradshaw Family has been called into full-time faith-based ministry to:
They are skilled in plumbing, electrical, carpentry, finished carpentry, auto mechanic, and project management.
Bill has been involved in all phases of remodelling and boat building over the years.
The Bradshaw Family asks for a place to park and plug their rig in with access to water and sewage.
They ask for some sort of compensation to help pay their expenses, but this detail can be worked out for each specific project. Use the contact info below.
After five years of prayer, our family has answered God’s call to a “Works” ministry.
We have taken our family: Bill, Allison, Adam age 11, and Mia 6 on the road, doing service work. Our goal is to be of help to others as we travel, sharing the love of Jesus in practical ways.
For five years we have sensed the Lord leading us. In the summer of 2008, we took a step of faith and placed our home on the market. We reasoned that if the Lord wanted it sold, it would sell despite the collapse of the real estate market. Our home was under contract within six weeks! The Lord led us to a wonderful fifth wheel in new condition, having been used a total of two weeks! The layout, storage, and options, could not have been more designed for our needs. The house sold, and we moved into the RV parked at a very special friends home.
Fall came, the weather was getting cold, and we still had not found a truck to pull our travel trailer that was in our price range. After the suggestion of a friend, we began calling RV dealers. A dealer in southern Maine, had a 1996 Freightliner hauler with just 45,000 miles. The truck was in great condition, and had a rear lounge area that would be perfect for the kids. Still, the price was way out of our range. At this point, fear was setting in, but fear is not of God! After a time of prayer, we made an offer that we could afford, and it was excepted! When we went to pick up the truck, we met with the owner. Bill shared our testimony with him, not knowing where he was spiritually. He told Bill that he had prayed about our offer, and the Lord had told him to sell us the truck, for the amount that was offered! PRAISE GOD! Bill left his job of thirteen years in November 2008.
We sense that we are “on call” making ourselves available to others, trusting God to lead us, and provide for our needs. 2009 has been a time of getting used to the change in lifestyle, and learning to trust God like we never have before. He has proven Himself faithful, providing us with places to park the RV, opportunities to minister, and reconnect with family that we have not seen in years.
You can help us by making us aware of your need, and keeping us in prayer.

LORD Bless You!
March 9, 2010 To Whom it May Concern: I heartily recommend to you Bill and Allison Bradshaw. We were blessed with seeing them come to Christ through a family in our church, and then grow in the Lord. If I could pick one word to describe them it would be "faithful". Our church went through some difficult times, but they hung in there! These are people of integrity. Allison served by heading up our nursery and did a great job. Bill helped with ushering and was very faithful on workdays. Bill has discernment and wisdom. He may not say a lot, but he knows what is what and is a man you can trust with anything. We deeply appreciate this family. Bill has management experience, and stood up for the little guys when the corporate freight train was running them over. The only regret we have is that they went south for the winters. If I can be of further assistance to you regarding Bill and Allison, please call me at 207-667-8998. Pastor Burton Lowry Ellsworth Assembly of God Ellsworth, Maine
We have known the Bradshaw Family since the Fall of 1998. We have grown to love them and their beautiful children. Over the years we have been in Bible Studies with them, been part of the same homeschool group, gone to the same church, we have worked side by side, we have shared many meals together, and we have grown in the LORD together They strive to always seek the LORD's will and HIS ways in all they do. They have a humble spirit of servanthood. They have helped us out over the years by love gifts, fixing our buses, donating various materials for the bus conversions, etc. We know that GOD has called them out like us to live a unique lifestyle of faith. We are excited for them and know the Bradshaw Family will be a tremendous blessing to you, your church, and your family.

Recommendation for Bill & Allison Bradshaw:
Bill and Allison came to our campground in February of 2009 and were an amazing help to us. Bill was energetic and joyful and always willing to do any job that was needed. He was always there to help, even if we didn't ask him and we were so blessed by his gentle and giving spirit.
Allison helped in our campstore, cleaning, pricing and stocking inventory. She too was very joyful and a hard worker, willing to help in any way.
We were so impressed with their work but were also blessed to get to know this family who's passion for the Lord and desire to serve Him are evident in everything they do.
We highly recommend them and hope they can come back to see us in Virginia!
