A lovely out-in-the-world style show

I really appreciate that the producers leave the studio from time to time and get into the world to do their interviews. I would never have known there was a group helping people do low budget weddings as a ministry. Good work, team!

Short Stories of Hope

I find each episode too short but only because the stories of hope and people working so hard to provide for a better are uplifting. Keep up the great work!

Not just talking, doing!

I enjoy that this podcast is promoting actual action. I need not say anything else. It’s more than just conversation, it’s God in motion.
