Here & There Podcast S02E26 - Money Talks - June 25, 2016

June 28, 2016

As a Global Worker, you probably feel like you're having an out-of-money experience at times. My pro bono financial advisor (AKA my father-in-law) told me that the quickest way to double my money is to fold it over and put it back in my pocket! ‪#‎Money‬. Jesus talked a lot about it in the B-I-B-L-E, and this is our second Here & There Podcast on the it likely matters on some level to many of you. During ‪#‎Segue‬ I had the chance to sit down with a new GW to the ‪#‎RAN‬ family who's been coaching people on handling their money for a living. Her full identity is being withheld for her security, but her free advice is here for the taking. Remember, when you have too much month at the end of your money, you still might be richer than you think. ‪#‎momoney‬ ‪#‎moproblems‬ ‪#‎PAOCpensionfund‬ ‪#‎Godsupply‬ ‪#‎RANitized‬

Here & There Podcast S02E25 - Breaking Up Is Easy To Do - June 18, 2016

June 19, 2016

Turns out, breaking up is easy to least when it comes to Global Workers and supporting churches! In the latest edition of the HnT Podcast and the long-awaited reunion of pod partners, I join Šel and Ännå and talk about the touchy subject of getting ‪#‎dumped‬ by a ‪#‎partner‬ church. If you're a GW who's been fed the proverbial, "It's not you, it's me" line by a ‪#‎supporter‬ before, you might want to tune in with an empathetic box of Kleenex and a notepad to take notes on how to "take it like a ‪#‎Eurasian‬ missionary" from the Armitages. In the end maybe it's not me, it's you! 🇨🇦⛪️💸💔🇸🇰

Here & There Podcast S02E24 - You Can Call Me ካሌብ - June 11, 2016

The Urban Dictionary describes a person named ‪#‎Kaleb‬ this way: "A Kaleb will make you laugh, when nothing else can. A Kaleb will make your face hurt from the amount of smiling you'll do. A Kaleb is the best kind of guy you'll ever come across, so if you're lucky enough to meet a Kaleb don't let him slip through your probably won't find another one. They are like an endangered species in the world of men." In the latest edition of the HnT Podcast, I sat down and squirmed around with this young ‪#‎Canethiopian‬, who's name means "devotion to God", and asked him some tough (for a 4 year old) and not-so-tough questions about being ‪#‎adopted‬, eating ‪#‎injera‬, being an answer to prayer, if it was #1 or #2, and becoming a ‪#‎missionary‬. As you listen, I think you'll agree: this kid is going to do great things in this world! 🇪🇹👶🏾👌🏾

HnT The Missionary Position on Making a Baby - June 3, 2016

June 3, 2016

Kelvin and Laura May Chan are having a baby! According to Kelvin, "when two people love each other, and __________________, then the ‪#‎Burmese‬ fairy comes and delivers the baby!" I'm not sure which web site he learned his birds and bees from but I think Laura will let him know if the fairy is any help during the delivery. Due in about 4 weeks, this is the Chan's first baby and they've returned from ‪#‎Thailand‬ to Canada to make her a Canuck! While at ‪#‎Segue2016‬, the Chans agreed to chat with me about all things baby: how she was made, when they found out she was a she, interesting Thai and Burmese cultural pregnancy observations, their uncertainty about juggling life with a newborn and ministry, and how they ensured they wouldn't have ‪#‎stateless‬ grandchildren. As former ‪#‎midtermers‬, they might just be 3 of my favourite people. 👨‍👩‍👧🇹🇭🌏👌🏼
