I’m excited to bring you a special guest this week – my wife, Katherine Entzminger. Ordinarily, she wouldn’t be interested in something like this but she’s really felt God moving her to share some of the stories from her time as a missionary.


Right now Katherine is a full-time homemaker but she spent about 4 ½ years as a missionary with Youth with a Mission (YWAM). While in YWAM, she traveled to Mexico and Central America, Africa, India, and Central Europe. She also spent time as part of the support staff on a YWAM base.

After her time with YWAM, she went back to school and re-entered the marketplace. And that was all before she and I ever met.

In this week’s interview, you’ll discover:

  • One often-misattributed quote that has shaped how Katherine approaches both friendship and ministry
  • How Katherine ended up lost on a street, faced with armed military and how God brought her and another missionary back to where they were safe
  • One thing that God showed her that has released forgiveness in her life
  • What’s exciting Katherine right now and what she’s looking forward to
  • One thing you can do to encourage a missionary today
  • Some advice Katherine was given that sets her up to receive help
  • One thing that someone did to support her while she was a missionary and even while she was transitioning back into the marketplace
  • Internet Resource: Facebook
  • Book Recommendation: No Compromise
  • What Katherine would focus on for the first seven days in a new country and what she would do to ensure she wouldn’t be distracted from it.
  • Best contact: email (listen to the episode)

As a listener of Engaging Missions, Audible.com will give you a free audio book when you sign up for a 30-day free trial to check out their service. While the book Katherine recommended – No Compromise – isn’t available from Audible, there are over 150,000 titles to choose from.

Personally, I recommend the Bible. Just about any translation. You can't go wrong to have God's word available when you're driving to work, out for a walk, or working out. It's what I did when I joined Audible over 7 years ago.
