    Episode 63- Facilitating Resiliency in Local Believers with John Weaver

    Episode 63- Facilitating Resiliency in Local Believers with John Weaver

    Sometimes as expatriate believers, we underestimate how much our words impact local believers. John Weaver talks to us today about how to facilitate a culture of hearing from God in local believers--which, he says, results in resilience. He says that sometimes we get in the way of our local disciples hearing what God is saying to them because we interject our own thoughts, feelings or opinions. Instead, he encourages us to help our local believers develop a lifestyle of learning to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to them instead of being too quick to interject our own input.

    Episode 62- The Rainbow of God's Grace with Ron and Janine Parrish

    Episode 62- The Rainbow of God's Grace with Ron and Janine Parrish

    “Retirement off-shore” is NOT why Ron and Janine Parrish are living in the tropical paradise of the Indonesian archipelago! Instead, as 60+ year-old grandparents they are making disciples and mentoring the next generation to plant churches among the 129 UPGs of this nation they love and for which they thank God daily. “We may not be addressing the thousands in front of us, but we can address those who will be addressing the thousands.”

    When’s the last time you spent a good portion of your devotional time in the morning simply recounting, “How has God loved me in the past 24 hours?” and giving Him thanks and praise for all the ways?! This interview with the Parrishes was delightful journey of discovering their resilience is in their intentional cultivation of a lifestyle of gratitude. And you will not want to miss Ron’s challenging invitation at the end!

    Episode 59- Life with Kids on the Streets in Romania with David Chronic

    Episode 59- Life with Kids on the Streets in Romania with David Chronic

    “The best thing we’ve done is…stay and provide a long-term presence.” And stay he has, as David has lived among, served, and loved the most vulnerable of the poor since 1998 in the Eastern European nation or Romania.

    Silas and Steve treasured every moment sitting and talking to this long-time friend of Silas’s as he shared keys to his longevity and resilience in an extremely difficult - and rewarding - ministry. As you’ll hear, paramount among those keys is commitment to relationships and messy, challenging, but beautiful life together in community. David says this is, “The core to being able to do this for such a long time.”

    Dive into the moving stories with us as David shares how those on the margins teach us how to survive in the context of poverty. “They teach us resiliency.” He tells short-termers and those who’ve joined him longer term, “Drink from the wells that the people that we’re serving among drink from.”

    We loved how David helped us look at resiliency “as more of a collective and communal project, rather than just an individual one.” We hope you also love and glean some more keys to resiliency as David shares his story.

Best podcast I’ve listened to for overseas workers

I have been overseas for a year & a half now. Every time I listen to this podcast I leave encouraged, wanting to know Jesus more and have some practical things to think about or do. This podcast has definitely played a role in me staying on the field while going through all that 2020 has thrown at us. Thanks for making this and your impact is far reaching!

this podcast is amazing! I love their honesty about real topics that affect the day to day lives of followers of Jesus. they recognize the reality of how difficult experiences that demand resilience can be, but always offer the hope of Jesus & the fruit that walking in resilience provides. they are grounded in scripture, testimonies, and practical tools for how to not just hear encouraging stories but to use those tools in your life so you can walk in freedom and wholeness. worth the listen!!!
