Joe’s Podcast Episode #018

In this week’s episode, I answer questions from my sister’s Sunday School class in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. I just love questions from Sunday School classes! The kids in our Sunday School are going to be the missionaries of tomorrow and the supporters of missionaries in our churches in just a few years. We need to excite these kids for missions!

The first question is from Sammy. She asks me what my favorite missionary book was as a child.

My favorite book when I was a kid was Bruchko. It used to be called For this Cross I’ll Kill You. You may still find it in some libraries under the old title. I loved this story, and I met this missionary in my home town. I hope everyone will read this book and fall in love with missions!

The next question is from Tracy and she asks about the animals we have seen in Ghana.

The next question is from Linnaeus, and he asks about the strange foods I have eaten and what I have liked and what I have not liked!

The last question is from Rachel, and she asks how I knew I was called to be a missionary and when that happened.
