    Radical Generosity with Mercy Ships Partner Donors, Ed & Sherri Torres

    Radical Generosity with Mercy Ships Partner Donors, Ed & Sherri Torres

    What does it mean to live a life of radical generosity? To give away more than you keep? On today’s episode, Raeanne Newquist spoke with Ed and Sherri Torres, Mercy Ships partner donors, and was challenged by their life’s purpose that is all about blessing others.
    When Ed and Sherri, a couple from Indiana, found out that their financial situation was about to significantly change, they started to discuss what they might do with the extra money. This took them on a 17-month journey of long conversations, researching organizations, learning from others who have intentionally given their resources and ultimately, they drafted a Family Giving Vision that helped them decide where best to invest their blessing.
    This inspiring couple will challenge you to be intentional with your finances as they share their vision and principles for investing in God’s kingdom.
