While Stewart Paul Shaw was in Toronto last week making #partners and influencing #donors, I had the chance to hang out with and get to know his and Monique Shaw's daughter, Hope Shaw. The youngest of 3 Shaw kids, Hope has had an illustrious career as an MK/TCK! We talked about being dragged to #India at 2 years of age by a #leash, running away from home at 14 to go to #boarding school in #Thailand, whether or not her parents properly prepared her for #adult life, moving to #Redding, California, #USA to work on her #process, and her potential future in #Kolkata, India. The world is her #oyster, and she wants the world to know #hope. #hopeforthehopeless #livingontheedge #lifeofmission #missionisliving #MK #TCK #Canadindian 🇨🇦❤️💚🇮🇳
This past week, Stewart Paul Shaw and his daughter Hope Shaw stayed in the #missionaryguesthouse while meeting with supporters in the #Toronto area and preparing to return to #India. Stew is one of a kind. An original. The real McCoy. A genuine Indian article. An #Irish anomaly. A legendary oddity. I was excited when he agreed to be on the Here & There Podcast, but wasn't sure where it would lead because of our shared #ADD. We wandered around his childhood, talked musical tastes, addictions, his family, their call to India, the Teen Challenge dream, and his greatest accomplishment so far in life. #Hope you enjoy this bowl of nontraditional Irish Stew! 🇮🇪👉🏽🇮🇳👌🏼 #IndianLeprechaun
Murray Cornelius joins us again for a great conversation on how the Majority World church is doing things differently and maybe even better than we are. Matt and Shel have the privilege to grill their boss about his claims, ask him about turning 60 and try to get him to go "full angry prophet" on the Canadian church. If you work for PAOC IM then you have to listen or else we'll dock your pay. At least that's what Murray said. It's a great use of your time and a good way to honour Murray before he takes the fateful step into senior status. Happy Birthday big cheese!
This past week, right after #PAOC #gencon2016 in #Montreal, an Ethiopian Eunich came to stay in the #missionaryguesthouse in Pickering, ON. We ate all low-carb food, drank a ton of good coffee, and did plenty of talking...and neither of us know any short sentences! Between high fat meals, we dropped a discussion about #churchplanting in Ethiopia and beyond in the podcatcher. My guest opens up about #gencon, #family, #fogmachines, #coffee, #apostles, #diapers, #traplesschurches, #northafrica, #bigladies, #ownership and world domination. Be careful when you listen - you may just find yourself inspired and moving to Africa to join his team as they continue planting coffee churches across the continent! 🇪🇹☕️⛪️👏🏼
