On this episode of the Journeywomen podcast I had the privilege of chatting with my own present-day hero, Gloria Furman, about living life on mission for Jesus. Gloria is a wife, mother, cross-cultural worker, and the author of some of my favorite books. Gloria and I laughed a lot as we discussed what it looks like to live on mission no matter where you’re at in the world. So you’ll know, she’s actually located across the world and because of the time difference, I woke up around 4:45 in the morning to have this conversation. If you thought my voice was low - just wait till you hear this. You’ll have to excuse my morning voice and delirious laughter for the first five minutes of our conversation. Trust me, it’s worth it.
Every time we talk, I’m astounded by Gloria’s knowledge of Scripture and her ability to answer all of my questions from a Gospel-centered perspective. Listen to what she said, “Your own personal fitness is not the most important thing about your ambassadorship. The most important thing about your ambassadorship is the One who is sending you.” I left this conversation challenged to intentionally pursue those who are already in my direct sphere of influence as an ambassador for Christ. Alright, enough of me! Let’s dig into my conversation about living on mission with my friend Gloria Furman.
