Here at Wildwood we are For the Nations Following Jesus Together to the Glory of God. In Matthew 28:19, Jesus tells His disciples to “make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. Just as Jesus has a heart for the nations to know that there is salvation only found in His name, so we also want the all the nations to know of the hope of eternity that is only found in Jesus! This week, one of our members Brian comes on the podcast to talk about an opportunity he had to serve Christ in another country. Enjoy the show!
