Authentic and down to earth

These are great conversations about the reality of life on the field and what it means to be called into cross cultural ministry! If you are at all considering becoming a missionary, listen to this podcast!

Keep Learning

R&B are awesome. Podcasts like this are what keep people learning and growing closer to the heart of Jesus. We have to tell our stories and testify, and this podcast is a golden avenue for that.
