Appreciated podcast!

Kristy- thank you for the podcast! I love hearing from those directly on the front lines with the many ministry areas of Samaritans purse. This greatly empowers me to pray more intelligently and specifically- and also- with more compassion and passion for God to strengthen all those who minister and volunteer.
