Power in this podcast
There is a power in this podcast to take you away from your daily concerns that often seem to weigh us down and, instead, turn our eyes and prayers to people who are truly “in the ditch”. Listen and be changed!
Listen and see…
When I just need to see Jesus, that He still enters into darkness to shine His light, that He still enters hurt and pain with His generous love…when I need to be reminded of the reason I fell absolutely in love with Him and wanted to give nothing less than all of my life to share the gospel…when I need to lift my head, this is one of the places I go. “Taste and see that the LORD is good.” And sometimes listen and see.
God bless you all at Samaritan’s Purse in all you do! Thank you for sharing the updates on what you’re doing around the world!
