How God Showed His Faithfulness Through Culture Shock and Disaster in Uganda – FT4F0051

Have you ever found yourself in the face of fear or loss wondering if God is REALLY going to see you through it?

It’s at one of those times that Will and Etta Shehee learned a key truth about God’s faithfulness – that it’s EXACTLY when we want to question God that we most need to remind ourselves of God’s faithfulness. That’s when they learned that they could rest in God’s goodness to see them through, no matter what the outcome.

As you listen, you’ll discover

  • How being in Uganda for a few months still didn’t prepare them for the shock of really moving their lives there.
  • How simple cultural expectations caused MASSIVE confusion.
  • How God prepared them for a very trying season using a pregnancy.
  • How God turned a driver afraid for his life back around to help Will and Etta, and how his actions may have saved their lives.
  • How God had just the right people in the right places at the right time.

You’re sure to be encouraged in our faith and challenged in your walk. I know I was.

Short Term Missions in War Torn Syria – FT4F0047

Kyle Rice, our guest this month, normally leads a somewhat normal life in Anchorage, Alaska area. Family man, working in corrections, and a guy who loves the outdoors ( as many Alaskans do) would describe him pretty well.

Why go to Syria on a short term mission, in the middle of all the unrest and destruction? Over these two sessions, Kyle explains why the normal guy accepted this challenge, and you might just be challenged, too! Check it out here on FXMissions FromtheForeFront.


Half Timing for Jesus – FT4F0046

Join us today as we talk missions with Zack Loving, joined by our friend in common, Billy Bohannon.

Originally from remote Southeast Texas, Zack and his family are half timers. Maybe that word doesn’t mean what you think it means? Half the year Zack and family are in Thailand and half in Alaska! Can you say “I’d rather you be hot or cold?”

Not sure that Zack, a pilot, thought about that when agreeing to dedicate his life in Aviation missions. Find out about his work with Free Burma Rangers and more about him, too, on this edition of From The Forefront, an FXMissions Podcast.

A trainer, discipler, and seriously excellent photographer, Kerry joins us to talk about his start in missions 30+ years ago, and more.

You’ll be encouraged by his story and example.

Full Circle for the Gospel – FT4F0043

Psst.. share this with someone you know who has missions on their mind. And thanks.

A Fork In The Road Book Review with Vidar Ligard – FT4F0042

Vidar shares with us some nuggets of wisdom from his recently published book to help us navigate toward progress on this path, including how personal growth is key to ministry growth.
