The World Is At Hand, Pt. 1


Some dream of traveling the world and experiencing exotic cultures. Others fear ever leaving home. Josh and Lauren Manning of Noel, MO have a very different situation and a very different dream.  While most of rural America seems to be slowly fading away, Noel is suddenly a bustling small town and anchor for a major wave of 21st Century immigration.

When faced with such momentous changes all around them Josh and Lauren prayed some risky prayers. The kind that get answered in very specific ways. Soon they found themselves making a spiritual home for hundreds of people in desperate search of peace and meaning. And it’s not without its humorous side, as you’ll hear today and tomorrow.

Bram Joins them around the kitchen table for one of the most unique pastor interviews you’ll ever hear.
