Today on the Engaging Missions Show, our guest, Mateo, comes from the University of Florida. He focuses on equipping students to follow the Great Commission and see the world come to know Jesus.

Mateo was born in Columbia but came to the U.S. with his family at age 10 due to potential conflict in the country. His family faced financial struggle. But because of that struggle, the family came to Christ.

During his college years, Mateo faced a significant loss. God helped him through that season and fueled his desire to see the Gospel spread. Now, he follows the Lord's call to make disciples and send out believers all over the world.

As a listener of Engaging Missions, will give you a free audio book when you sign up for a 30-day free trial to check out their service. With over 150,000 titles to choose from, you’re sure to find one you like.

Personally, I recommend the Bible. Just about any translation. You can't go wrong to have God's word available when you're driving to work, out for a walk, or working out. It's what I did when I joined Audible over 7 years ago.
