You have to listen to this sermon..

Doug & Margaret Nichols have served in missions for nearly 40 years of which 20 years were in the Philippines. They presently reside in Seattle, Washington, where Doug serves as Founder and International Director Emeritus with Action International Ministries. He is the Facilitator of Children in Crisis, Leadership Development, and Pastoral Leadership Development with a special focus of evangelism, discipleship, and development to the urban poor and underprivileged children.

In case you didn't catch it, he founded the ministry that Stephanie and I are going with to Zambia.

If there is anyone who deserves to speak about the poor, Doug is uniquely qualified. He founded ACTION ministries primarily to reach the needy, the neglected and the nobodies throughout the world. He is an amazing speaker with some amazing stories. He is challenging and inspiring. This message he gave at our church, Northlake Community Church, was full of tears, laughter and practical things we can do to change the world. I can't recommend it enough.

And as an added bonus, he gives a nice little insight about the ministry my family will be doing in Africa training pastors and you hear my voice reading the scripture and praying... Definitely worth your while to listen to this great message from a truly great in grace man.
