EM002: Take a risk for the Kingdom! Ultimately, you have nothing to lose. with Darius Walker of Be a Fully Funded Missionary

I’m really excited to be able to bring you Darius Walker of Be a Fully Funded Missionary this week.

Darius is a missionary and is the author of Be a Fully Funded Missionary and Money for Missionaries. I do need to say that “Darius Walker” is a pen name that he’s chosen to use for security reasons.

I first learned of Darius while looking for some fundraising ideas for a couple friends of mine in Kenya and Australia. When I found Be a Fully Funded Missionary I checked it out and then recommended they check it out. It’s more than a book – it’s a complete guide to raising funds for long-term missions.
