Bringing Help, Hope, and Healing to the Isolated

“I always had an interest in flying” said Program Manager with Moody Aviation’s Jim Conrad.

As a young man his dream was to build and fly his own space plane until he was challenged with this question, “Jim, do you want to invest in eternal things or build your own kingdom?” Those words are what eventually led Jim and his wife Susanne to apply at Moody Aviation.

Jim also shares the story of Nard, a boy from the Philippines who was given the opportunity to come to the states and study at Moody aviation. He became a missionary pilot and had the privilege of delivering the Bible to his own people in their heart language. Hear how his sister responded in this episode.

Also, why is it so intimidating to invite your friends to church? Ben opens up about his confidence in challenging others to invite their friends to church and his own hesitation when it came to doing so himself. He shares the importance of prayer in the process.

Lastly, Shawna wonders why God sends mere people when He could send angels and the Holy Spirit. She reminds us that we are God’s plan A to reach a lost world.

Perry LaHaie

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

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.
