Missionary Talks 40: Larry Franklin

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — david at 11:38 pm on Sunday, December 9, 2007

Larry Franklin and his wife travel the world training teachers on how to effectively reach children with the Gospel. They have over 40 years experience working with children and do a very good job at passing that experience and knowledge on to others. I was privileged to attend a 3 day seminar with them as our teachers.

I had not previously met Bro. Franklin, but we had a good time chatting with one another while we were together. He comes from the same church as Marco Castro whom I interviewed for episode 16.

In this episode he talks about the need for missionaries specifically to children. He also tells how that through training people are able to work with children. While he acknowledges a need for specially trained and prepared workers with children, he sees where these workers can be trained in their own churches to minister to the kids around them.

Very interesting presentation. A different outlook from most missionary programs.

I was disgusted with this episode and Larry Franklin’s self-glorifying talk about his techniques with children. I almost threw my iPod in the trash when I noticed I listened to 15 minutes of a missionary exalt mostly himself and not God.

Presenting Christ as some abstract object by which someone must make a one-time decision so some self-exalting man can boast about his numbers is practically atheism.

BTW, I see this a rare bad apple in a very good podcast. Next time, try to steer the interview to what God has done.
