Hobo for Christ Podcast
About This Show
Thoughts on living radically for Jesus from a Catholic missionary living out of her car. After two degrees in theology and 5 years in the classroom, I packed everything into the trunk of my car in June of 2012 to become a hobo for Christ, traveling the world preaching the Gospel and blogging as I go at www.piercedhands.com.
