    76: Global Evangelism with Nicole Moses

    Have you ever wondered how to pray for missionaries in today's world? In this episode, we speak to a missionary, Nicole Moses, who shares her experiences and insights on global evangelism. We delve into why we sometimes neglect to pray for global missions, and how we can pray more effectively for missionaries by relating to them personally. Join us as we explore the world of missions and gain a deeper understanding of how we can be involved in God's work around the globe.
    Nicole Moses and her family live and work in Sierra Leone, West Africa. They left their small-town Texas life for long-term service with unreached people in rural areas. She homeschools her 4 children and works as a pediatric occupational therapist alongside her husband Geoffrey, a family medicine physician. They’ve both learned the power of prayer in difficult and discouraging situations and strive to be a persistently prayerful person, drawn from the parable in Luke 18:1-8.

Inspiring my prayer life

I’m in a new unknown season of motherhood and my prayer life looks sooo different. This podcast is inspiring me to speak with God like a friend. There is no right or wrong way to pray. It’s okay that prayer looks different depending on your season.
