Podcasts for Missions
Things change quickly and if we are unaware of it, we may miss the opportunity to praise and thank God for his work on our behalf. Are you aware of what God is currently doing in many nations around the world? Or of what we can do to mobilize this generation to help bring the gospel to the ends of the earth?
Podcasts are an excellent way to keep up with the latest trends and developments in missions, and to be equipped to reach others with the gospel. The convenience of listening while doing mundane tasks or travel can be an encouragement to our faith while we hear stories of believers from around the world participating in the expansion of his church.
