Open Bible is filled with fascinating people: entrepreneurs, pastors, church planters, first responders, authors, professors, parents of children with special needs, missionaries, and many others who have faced an array of challenges and victories. Be sure to watch for these podcasts. You will be treated to riveting stories of how God has led your fellow Open Bible family members and others connected to our family down some fascinating paths.
As Randall says in his podcasts, “Everyone has a story to their journey, and God loves to participate in those stories.”
Featured episodes for April:
Christi Armstrong, an Open Bible credentialed minister, is the Executive Director of World Relief in Spokane, Washington, an organization committed to helping refugees from around the world who have either lost their homeland or fear for their lives should they continue living there. In this episode of Better Roads, Randall and Christi talk about how similar refugees are to us. They care about their families and want to maintain responsibility for caring for them. And, they are so appreciative of this nation for opening its protective arms to them. The story of refugees is not a border crossings matter; it is an ongoing story of people who have been carefully vetted and have received some of the very limited number of acceptance notices provided by the government. You don’t hear much about this ministry, but it is a moving one. Pull up with your cup of coffee and learn more about it.

In this episode of Better Roads, Randall converses with Derek about his life journey, how Christ apprehended him, and about the better roads he has taken that impact who he is and what he does today.
