Gret Glyer talks about his creative project for missionaries, an app called “DonorSee.” He discusses how the app works as well as the many ways it can encourage believers around the world.
Gret also shares how God called him into missions after working at a car company for some time. Once he taught in math to students in Malawi, he felt led to continue in ministry. Throughout the episode, Gret ties in the theme of “true religion” (James [1:27]) and how we can truly walk in obedience to the Lord.
