Bryan is doing Great Work!
I came across this podcast from a friends ministry. I was hooked from day one. Then I got to share my story for His Glory! Bryan I applaud you in answering the call of God. You're doing great work and it's much needed to unify the body of Christ. Too often missionaries and church leaders are miss understood, when after all we are all on a mission from God making us missionaries.
