MISSION TALK-Rony Ben Dominic:Life-changing Cambodia

I was a teenager when I first heard about full-timership and its young missionaries, who are now famously called ‘God’s Crazy People’. The whole concept about setting aside a whole year to engage in mission work was an absolutely crazy thought for me and that’s precisely what attracted me to ...
