Missionary Talks: Listener Feedback 03

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 2:49 pm on Thursday, November 1, 2007

Thank you very much for listening to the show. I am really excited about the content that I have coming up in the next few weeks. I am working on a script for at least one William Carey episode. It will probably spill over into two though. These will be like the David Livingstone shows I did a few months back. I have been quite absorbed with the research for William Carey and think that I will have it done “any day now.” Therefore I have not scheduled interviews with other missionaries.

In this episode I mention a couple of the shows I have planned as well as try to encourage you to write reviews, particularly at iTunes, and send feedback about the show.

I have tried to keep the interview shows clutter-free from feedback and begging for reviews. However, I think this makes it a bit easier for the listener to not be involved. Please, let me know if there is something specific you would like me to ask the missionaries. Some of the questions I am currently asking come from listener suggestions.

Thank you for listening and passing the word along about the show to your friends.


Missionary Talks 35: James Carney

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 10:46 pm on Friday, October 5, 2007

James is the 7th child of Missionary Don Carney. James is currently in Mexico with his parents after returning from a trip to Peru where he worked with a missionary family for the summer. After spending a few months in Mexico with his family, he will be headed to France to help another family.

As a recent college graduate, James wants to make a ministry of being a missionary assistant. I enjoyed talking with James this week and seeing the excitement he has as a young person to spend his life serving God. You will enjoy his enthusiasm for his planned future ministry.


Missionary Talks 34: John

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 1:59 pm on Saturday, September 29, 2007

John and his family have been missionaries to the Jews in New York City for 7 years. Though he was born in Michigan, John moved to New York in the early 1990s to pursue a career in art. He was saved as an adult and after finishing Bible college in Tennessee, he returned to New York with a passion to reach the Jewish community with the news of the Messiah.

I first met John at a missions conference about 10 years ago and, though we have spent little time together, each time we have a chance to talk, I feel like I am talking with an old friend. I think you will sense that too as you listen to him tell about his passion for reaching the Jews with the Gospel.


Missionary Talks 33: Chris Miller

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 8:49 pm on Friday, September 21, 2007

Chris Miller has been an evangelist in the United States for 13 years. Though not a missionary by title, much of the work that an evangelist does is similar to what a missionary does in that he proclaims the Gospel. The work of an evangelist is in a supportive role to the work of the local church.

Chris shares with us some of the trials and joys of traveling in evangelism. He is able to travel with his wife and four children.

If you would like to know more about Bro. Miller, his family and ministry be sure to check out their website.


Missionary Talks 32: Erin Rigsby

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 1:14 pm on Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Erin Rigsby is a missionary in Nigeria, Africa. She has been working in Africa for the last 4 years as a nurse in a ministry for street children. These would not necessarily be orphans, though many are. She has had to learn to deal with new illnesses and work around the practices of traditional Nigerian medicine.Erin and Shedrach

Erin and Shedrach

In this interview she talks with us about a couple of short term missions trips to Zimbabwe and China that helped shape the direction God had for her life. She also highly recommended that the listeners read biographies of missionaries. She said of missionary biographies that they “are a very non-threatening way to learn about missions and to learn about different countries in the world.”

She concluded her interview with this bit of advice:

[I would encourage you that] if God has placed in your heart a desire to go overseas or to be a part of a ministry in the states, that you really take the opportunity. It has nothing to do with how you feel, it has to do with obedience and what the Lord is asking of us.

You can read more about Erin at her blog and ministry website.


Thank you for your prayers

Filed under: Information — David Peach at 7:24 am on Wednesday, August 22, 2007

Thank you for praying. We did have strong winds all day yesterday (Tuesday), but we never really got much rain. The storm passed below us by about 100-150 miles. As it moved across the peninsula it broke down considerably and the north side of the storm did not hold together.

Because of where the storm did enter and pass through the peninsula, there are no deaths, nor even major injuries being reported here in Mexico. There were thousands of acres of crops destroyed, but unlike people, they grow back.

God was gracious to us.

Missionary Talks: Update

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 10:57 pm on Monday, August 20, 2007

This is an episode I put together just before hurricane Dean came into the Yucatan Peninsula. We are well prepared and don’t expect to experience much damage, but we will probably lose power for a while.

There was a very kind and encouraging review written about Missionary Talks at the Cool Podcasts website. The reason I say it is encouraging is that the reviewer seemed to pick up on the purpose of the podcast as I envision it.

We appreciate your prayers as we move through this. If you would like to keep up to date on our personal safety after the storm, please check our ministry website as I will try to radio information back to a friend who can update that site for me.
