The Simple Glory of Following Jesus One Step at a Time

Episode 202 - Nellie Ramirez

Wondering what you should do with your life or whether God would have you involved in short-term missions? Unclear about how to move forward?

As Nellie Ramirez shares, sometimes God doesn't give us the entire plan. Sometimes, He gives us only a single word and then walks with us as we discover what He's doing.

Listen as she shares how she and her team are able to use this simple principle. She shares how her team is able to minister to people both at home and abroad, how God used a nearly empty tank of Gas to start a church, and much more.
