Sometimes, when you’re in love, all you can do is tell others about this person who fills your heart with joy. For our guest, Robert Harris (a pen name), this is how he views ministry. After coming to know Christ and falling in love with Him, he had to share about what He did in his life. He is currently working with a ministry in Austin, Texas along with his wife.
Soon, the two of them will be moving to South Asia to train local church leaders in how to effectively share the Gospel. During our time together, Robert talked about the lessons he has learned through ministry and everyday life. As he prepares to enter this new culture, he and his wife are learning to trust the Lord and know that He is going with them.
