In this week’s episode of the Engaging Missions Show, Bill (pen name) shares about his life and ministry over the last few years. He has spent 12 years serving in Borneo, south east Asia, and now plants churches. He has two sons, five grandchildren, and his wife, who coordinates events in the States.

Throughout his time in ministry, Bill has seen God work in the most broken places. Bill discusses the simplicity of making disciples and sharing the Gospel. We must tell others the Good News so that those who scream out to the world will know there is the Answer.

    As a listener of Engaging Missions, will give you a free audio book when you sign up for a 30-day free trial to check out their service. With over 150,000 titles to choose from, you’re sure to find one you like.

    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.
