In this special episode, Bryan’s dad, Gordon Entzminger, joins in to talk about his involvement with US MAPS. This organization, run through Assemblies of God, partners with churches across the US to complete construction and evangelism projects. Gordon and his wife participate in this ministry while also working part time.
