Episode 74 - Short-Term Missions: Helpful or Harmful?

In Episode 74, Keith, Justin, and Graham sit down to discuss the intricacies of short-term mission trips. What are our experiecnes with short-term missions? What did we learn from them? How could our efforts to help actually be harmful? Why is it so important to take various factors (such as history, economies, and religion) into account when going abroad? Listen to find out what we think! In the beginning, the guys react to a video of a man denouncing Pokemon as demonic, and Justin elaborates his own experiences with this train of thought. As always, we are joined by Darcy Rumble from Giants in the Sound as we discuss the return of DC Talk and why people are so disappointed with it. Finally, the guys wrap up by giving our final thoughts! As always, be sure to comment, rate, and subscribe to the podcast! Let us know what you think!
