In this episode, I play an interview of a friend, Rob Mancuso, as we were on the island of Bocachica together for a mission trip. Bocachica is an island off the coast of Cartagena, Colombia. The area where we were ministering has 9,000 people who live without running water and have to get “sweet water” (fresh) by boat from the mainland. Antioch Community Church sent down a team of 14 to help dig latrines, pour concrete floors, and present a marriage and family conference.
- We mention David Platt’s book, Radical. It is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to read about God’s missionary heart and what should be our response to the Great Commission.
- We also mentioned David Platt’s sermon at “Together for the Gospel – 2012,” which you can listen to or view here: http://t4g.org/media/2012/05/divine-sovereignty-the-fuel-of-death-defying-missions-2/
