Join Ken and Deb Wednesday for our every other week visit with Todd Nettleton from Voice of the Martyrs. Todd reports on news from the persecuted church, giving us specific ways to pray and help. We are also challenged and inspired as we hear stories of courage and faith from those who are suffering for the cause of the Gospel around the world.
What does being left or right brained have to do with how we function as the church? Why do some people thrive in the body, while others struggle with church and grow increasingly disappointed? Wednesday we talk with Moody Publisher authors Jim Wilder and Michel Hendricks, who will show us the way to fostering a full-brained vibrant faith community.
Todd Nettleton is director of media development for The Voice of the Martyrs, working with the media to tell the stories of persecuted Christians to people in the United States. In his role with VOM, he has met with Christians who face persecution in many countries, including Sudan, China, Egypt, Turkey, Vietnam, Pakistan, Indonesia, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar (Burma) and Azerbaijan.
