The Story of George Grenfell, Part 2 (156)

April 26, 2023

In Episode 156, we continue the remarkable tale of George Grenfell. If you haven't listened to the previous episode, you must start there before you jump into this one. George's journey takes us back to mid-1800s Africa when missionaries brought the gospel to an unknown continent. David Livingston created the only map available, and George set out to explore uncharted territories.

We knew how he prayed for a boat, and the Lord provided a steamship, which they assembled in London and tested on the Thames River. We continue with the incredible journey of how they dismantled the steamship, boxed it up meticulously, and shipped it back to Africa in over a thousand boxes. But that's just the beginning of this awe-inspiring story. Get ready to be humbled, inspired, and fired up.

Tune in now, and let’s go bigger, better, and deeper!
