God loves to work in and through our weaknesses. He is very good at taking what little we have and multiplying it for thousands. Jordan Raybon visits Engaging Missions to share about how God has been doing that in his ministry. Jordan is a pastor from Tennessee who is living in Brussels, Belgium with his wife and son. He describes his church in Belgium as one that is thriving and growing.

Jordan shares about working in a multiethnic setting in Belgium. He also talks about the importance of making the Gospel understandable to a different culture while not watering it down in any way. Jordan reminds us to lean on God and to follow Him wherever He leads.
