EP 40 –
We continue today with the fascinating story of Leona Karni, a modern day missionary who has served for over 40 years in places like Israel, Holland, Thailand, Peru, and Columbia! There are SO many stories of God’s power and faithfulness in Leona’s life that we just had to bring her in to share some of them in Part Two! Leona’s testimony serves as a powerful reminder that God is still very much at work in the lives of those who simply say “Yes” to Him! You definitely won’t want to miss this one!

EP 41 – Catherine Booth (1829-1890):
If you had to choose one 19th century woman who most influenced church history, you’d be hard pressed to find a better choice than Catherine Booth! She and her husband, William, founded the Salvation Army, one of the most influential Christian ministry organizations in history. Along with William, Catherine was also a well-known speaker and advocate for the poor and underprivileged. In fact, it has been said that no one family ever spread the Gospel farther and more effectively than the Booths! Today we begin a two-part series on this remarkable woman and her call to preach the Gospel and reach out to London’s poorest and most destitute with the love of Jesus Christ.
