    The Story of George Grenfell, Part 2 (156)

    In Episode 156, we continue the remarkable tale of George Grenfell. If you haven't listened to the previous episode, you must start there before you jump into this one. George's journey takes us back to mid-1800s Africa when missionaries brought the gospel to an unknown continent. David Livingston created the only map available, and George set out to explore uncharted territories.We knew how he prayed for a boat, and the Lord provided a steamship, which they assembled in London and tested on the Thames River. We continue with the incredible journey of how they dismantled the steamship, boxed it up meticulously, and shipped it back to Africa in over a thousand boxes. But that's just the beginning of this awe-inspiring story. Get ready to be humbled, inspired, and fired up.Tune in now, and let’s go bigger, better, and deeper! If you enjoy this episode, please subscribe to the God Stuff Podcast, so you're always the first to know when a new episode is released.Episode Timestamps:  00:00 - Intro05:10 - Episode 155 Recap07:35 - The Second Phase of Grenfell's Missionary Service09:08 - Grenfell's Letter: Not Fitting with Other Missionary11:32 - Myth of Happy and Peaceful Primitive Tribes12:37 - Grenfell's Resiliency and Trip to England13:47 - Grenfell's Spiritual Success15:35 - Grenfell's Coming Home16:20 - Grenfell's Peaceful PassingAbout Our Host: Bill Giovannetti is the Senior Pastor at Pathway Church, Redding, California — an experienced senior pastor with a demonstrated history of working in the religious institutions’ industry.

Such a good pod

Love this podcast

I'm A Trekker ,

Fantastic Podcast

Bill G. really explains things so the Bible is understandable. I also love the way the podcast is based totally in the Bible. I like the extra things that we can download like the Barrier chart.
The podcast is also very enjoyable to listen to. I’ve only got to episode 13, but have learned a lot already. I love the podcast about introverted children, by the way. I am an introvert.
I really am enjoying his co host’s, too. I especially enjoy Bradly Thomas because I grew up in a church similar to the Baptist church. I can relate to Bill’s legalistic up bringing, too because the church my parents too me to was legalistic, too. (Love the accent)

No better theology

After growing up in an evangelical church and in Christian culture I was never secure in my salvation until I started hearing Pastor Bill teach. I’ve not heard such clear and concise doctrine in my life.
