In ministry, it can be easy to look for quick results and noticeable numbers instead of what is helping the community. Jean Johnson joins in to talk about the value of learning from other cultures and serving them well.
After nearly 30 years of ministry involvement, she has a lot to share and discuss. She has spent many years working in Cambodia as a church planter, and now she helps people learn from her experiences. More than anything, she wants people to know Jesus more in their own culture and find Him there.
