One Year Anniversary

On December 12th, 2008 we posted our first missionary podcast with Aaron in an undisclosed location in Asia.
One year later we have done 33 episodes! Not quite the weekly podcast that we originally intended, but it has been a fantastic year of exciting updates, answered prayer and praise reports!

God has truly been doing a wonderful work with the missionaries sent out of Calvary Chapel Living Water!

Many thanks to all of our missionaries, who put up with me hounding them as we worked to find time in their schedules. And many thanks to those who have listened to the podcasts and prayed for the missionaries.

I look forward to another year participating in the work that God is doing all around the world!

Be sure to subscribe to the podcast to get new episodes as they are released.
