    Jesus Amongst Gangsters! | Pete Portal

    Jesus Amongst Gangsters! | Pete Portal

    Pete Portal shares stunning stories of addicts and gangsters meeting Jesus and being transformed, and how he went from living with a heroin addict to establishing a church community - and all the heartbreak and failure along the way. The reality and result of his life choices and the messy lives he engages with are a tapestry of mighty works of God, as well as relapse, hopelessness and despair, the miraculous and the mundane, all balanced on a knife-edge.

Live with a Purpose

This podcast by Simon Guillebaud is inspiring-he has very interstellar guests that usually live a non boring Christian life. George Verwer is one of them who mobilized many young people to leave their comfort zones and venture out on a mission to share the gospel of Christ. As for me i was on one of the ships of Operation Mobilization MV Logos2 and can’t say anything else than that is was life-changing adventure. 20 countries in two years, made friends in the faith from all over the world, one of them became my wife and made me leave my homeland of Holland for the USA. Missions has been on my mind and heart ever since.

Listen to Simon for more adventures and stirring stuff.

Inspiration to Look Up

It happens to be a cold and dreary day outside. That, coupled with some discouraging things earlier in the day, had me feeling down in the dumps. I remembered it’s been on my radar to take a listen to this podcast, Inspired with Simon Guillebaud. Following a listen, I’m feeling more grounded and looking up and out toward what the Lord has for me today instead of introspectively down.

I gave a listen to an episode where Simon was interviewing a friend of mine. He’s been a friend for more than a decade, and I thought I knew so much about his story. In spite of that, this dive into his life and ministry gave me so much more insight and information to how the Lord is working in and through his life and the life of his family.

Simon did a great job of asking questions and unpacking his guest’s story. It was an enjoyable and helpful listen, and I look forward to the opportunity to listen to future episodes.
