World Mission’s CEO, Greg Kelley, joins us to share stories of God moving in the middle east. In his recent trip to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Greg shared the gospel again and again with people who have never heard it before, and the most unexpected people are being touched and changed by the Holy Spirit.
At a visit to a slum, where people literally live off of garbage, they baptized over 50 people in one day. At another location a young man from the Taliban accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and presented his gun to Greg as a sign of his transformation.
A woman who had been abused as a slave in a brick kiln returned to the place where the abuse happened to share how Jesus set her free. These are just a few of the stories Greg shares with us in this conversation. There’s more! “Mark my words,” Greg says, “5 years from now, we will hear stories of revival in Afghanistan”.
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
