Excellent thought provoking content. Expands my world, challenges my assumptions, and inspires me to live for God. As a former field worker myself, I LOVE this podcast. What will the next cultural blunder be?!?
I just listened to the podcast and I really liked it. You do a good job of being yourself. No pretenses, no nervousness, Very natural and appropriate. I liked the historical minute, and the pause to say thank you caught my attention and will be remembered. Thanks for sharing the podcast with us.
