God is Faithful: How to Trust Jesus for Great Things

Episode 197 - Kyle Philippi

Serving in the Kingdom of God can come in many shapes and sizes. Our guest today, Kyle Philippi, works to create documentaries for missionaries across the world. He and his team at Far Flung Tin Can strive to share these missionaries’ stories with others. Through his films, he has been able to see people take action and pour into the missionaries.

As Kyle shares about his experiences, he discusses some of the lessons he has learned over the last seven years. From packing to researching, a lot goes into preparing for a trip, and he gives great pointers on the process. More than anything else, Kyle reminds us that God is faithful, and if He is calling you, He will work it out.
