    Small Shrimp + Big Faith in Honduras, with Jeremy Wainwright

    Small Shrimp + Big Faith in Honduras, with Jeremy Wainwright

    Isn't it just like God to use something seemingly small, like shrimp, to make a MASSIVE impact in the Kingdom?
    It might seem like Jeremy Wainwright just suddenly decided to make a change, but really, God was working in his heart long before his friend said, "Would you like to go to Honduras?"
    It didn't take him long to decide that this was the opportunity God was giving him and that trip changed EVERYTHING. Now Jeremy has started Shrimp Matters and is actively working with partners in the United States as well as Honduras to bring sustainable shrimp farming to communities.
    His work, despite the challenges of COVID-19, is making a difference, and he believes that God has more!
    It was exciting to talk with Jeremy and I believe you'll be as encouraged as I was.
    Listen to DiscoverWhen God started working on Jeremy's heartHow key relationships have helped Jeremy along the wayThe power of waiting patiently, trusting that God is movingHow Jeremy has grown as a Believer and as a leaderWhat impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on their shrimp farmJeremy's heart for ministry led by the local ChurchWhat a small payment, a $100 bill, and shrimp have to do with the KingdomAnd much, much more

Thank you

Incredibly relevant podcast, doing mission work! Great interviews and thank you for doing this. As a Christian on a mission it can be hard when you feel isolated. We are not alone! Thank you for reminding me of this.

A Missionary Must Hear

I found this podcast by accident while I was searching for another. After listening to just one episode, I was hooked. Each episode is encouraging and challenging in all different kinds of ways. As a missionary, I have been really encouraged by the different stories of people giving their lives for the sake of Christ. I think absolutely that every missionary should listen to this, but also any believer should as well.
