How to Remain Deeply Devoted After Short Term Missions

Episode 200 - JennyBeth Gardner

Have you ever wondered why it seems so much easier to have a quality devotional life and hear God's voice while you're on a short missions trip? If so, you'll want to hear what JennyBeth Gardner has so say.

JennyBeth is a vocational missionary with the Transformational Education Network (TEN3). She spends most of her time in the US working on curriculum but she also makes short trips to build relationships, provide training and more.

As we talked, she shared some of what she's learned after years of making short trips, as well as some of the ways YOU can get involved with TEN3.
