Missionary Talks: Listener Feedback 05

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 12:06 am on Friday, May 2, 2008

In this episode I read two recent emails and encourage the listeners to spread the word about Missionary Talks. I also tell what I have planned in the next couple of episodes.

One project that I asked listeners to help me with is suggesting historical missionaries to write a biographical sketch about, like I did with David Livingstone and William Carey. This time I am asking listeners to give a suggestion as to who I should study. Those take quite a bit of time to research and write, but I look forward to reading who listeners want to know more about.

Please write me with suggestions or comments.


Missionary Talks 50: Bob Taylor

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 5:55 pm on Wednesday, April 16, 2008

Bob Taylor is the director of Go Forth Baptist Missions. I talked with Bro. Taylor specifically about different needs that he knows of on the foreign field. We also talked about how people with specialty training can be used on the field. He mentions that missions has always been, and will always be, about planting churches, but even if you are not called to be a pastor, there are many other areas you can be used on the field.

If you have questions about Go Forth specifically, or just about being a missionary, I feel confident that Bro. Taylor would love to point you the right direction. Go Forth is very selective about who they take on as missionary candidates, but Bro. Taylor sees much of his purpose in ministry with Go Forth is to talk with potential missionaries to help them prepare themselves for God’s service. Visit their website to get more information and don’t hesitate to call him if he can be a help to you. Their office number is 850-471-0990. All of their contact information is available at their site.


Missionary Talks 49: Mike Kelly

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 12:04 am on Sunday, April 6, 2008

Bro. Mike Kelly is a missionary with Rock of Ages Prison Ministry. Though I met Bro. Kelly many years ago, this was the first time we had a chance to talk one on one. I think you will be pleased as I was to find out how passionate he is for the ministry he is involved with. Mike works with the men inside the prisons as well as their families outside helping then come to a personal relationship with the Lord. He also helps educate churches on how they should receive a prisoner recently released from confinement.


Missionary Talks 48: Fred Carlson

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 12:43 am on Tuesday, March 25, 2008

Bro. Fred Carlson spoke with me about his 30+ years of involvement in the mission field. He personally served as a missionary pilot and church planter in various countries. Currently he is teaching missions classes in a college setting.

In this interview he explains a bit about his ministry on the foreign field and tells about some of the missions classes he teaches. I was surprised, in a good way, by one of his answers to my question about which classes someone should focus on while preparing to be a missionary on a college level.


Missionary Talks 47: Harry and Gina Stanley

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 6:51 pm on Wednesday, March 5, 2008

Harry and Gina Stanley share with the listeners about their planned ministry in England. They will be starting a church after spending some time learning the culture. Both of them stressed in the interview that no matter to whom you are ministering, people are simply people. While people have different cultures and backgrounds, they all need to know about the Savior.

Dr. Stanley served many years in the pastorate in the US. Because of their experiences, they were able to share some insight that was helpful to me as a missionary.

You can learn more about their ministry at their website.


Missionary Talks 46: Rob Willoughby

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 6:45 pm on Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Rob Willoughby and his family are on deputation to go to the country of Estonia. The Willoughbys are working to get to the field by the end of the year and are excited about getting started in the work.

In this episode he talks with us about language learning and some of the culture of Estonia. He shares some facts about the country of Estonia that were rather surprising to me.


Missionary Talks 45: Elisabeth Carney (reprise)

Filed under: Podcast,Show Notes — David Peach at 4:46 pm on Wednesday, February 20, 2008

Elisabeth Carney moved to the US after spending her teenage years in Argentina. In this interview she talks about some of the adjustments she had to make when she returned to the US. She experienced a bit of reverse culture shock.

When I interviewed Elisabeth for this program I talked with her about being a Missionary Kid. She and her husband currently serve on the mission field in Mexico.
