"To this funding year. Wonderful. Well, I will save everyone the trouble of having to find those on their own. I will share those links far and wide. Thank you. Of course. But I think I speak for everyone when I say you are a true inspiration for the work you all are doing. I can't thank you enough for putting an effort for these plants. And really habitat in general. I mean, it's a piece of a larger puzzle that is so necessary for not only the biosphere, but our existence and no one feels that stronger than people that live on the Louisiana coast. So thank you for all of your efforts and for telling us about it today. I really appreciate it. Well, and I got to tell you, you talk about Maya efforts, if I was going out to rescue dollars, was by myself and I was planting about myself 300 of them.

"Everyone doing this week? Would you all like a little bit of inspiration in your life today to get out and do something good for the world and especially for plants? Well, today's episode is going to give you that to you. Joining us is Gary Silas. He is the founder of the Louisiana iris conservation initiative. And when I say this is truly an inspirational effort I mean it. If you haven't heard of Louisiana irises before that's okay, I didn't either until recently. They are involved in a lot of hybridizing among different irises. So you've probably encountered some of their genetic legacy, but Louisiana irises are a taxonomic group of 5 iris species native to Louisiana and the surrounding regions of the Gulf Coast. Iris fulva, iris hexagona, iris brevicaulis, iris gigante cerulea, iris nelsonii, and iris Savannah. They are beautiful wetland irises and they are losing ground fast due to a lot of different factors like saltwater intrusion, draining of swamps, habitat destruction, you name it. These irises were once very common and today they're growing increasingly rare and that's why my guest is doing everything he can to not only help people remember these irises, but to do something to restore them and their habitat. And the way he's going about it is awesome. It is proof that you don't need a ton of resources to do really important and impactful work. But I don't want to steal any of his thunder. He is a dedicated and passionate individual who is also a great storyteller. So let's just jump right into it without further ado. Here's my conversation with Gary. I hope you enjoy. All.

Or equally horrific. They're both kind of horror movies. Let's start with the beginning though. How did you well, how did you get started in this business? And how did you, in particular, embrace the opportunity to make that first documentary in the house of sir? Yeah, so I grew up in Chicago with fairly.

"The number one kit for eating. Well i love it. And i know you will too. Yeah i mean that's the reason they cooperate with us because of that connection. You mentioned your partner. Where is he and all this like. Was he like iris. What are you doing. Oh my gosh or was he on board with all the changes. He's personality is much less controlling than my like. That tiger bear that wants everything in its spot and so but i was the one who approached him and told him you know. I'm not going to spank anymore. I didn't expect him to make that same commitment. But that was a commitment that i made and that as we talked about it he was really on board with it as well and so. I'm so grateful because we were really on this path of like deconstructing our old ways together and of course it was like different things at different times. And we try to like holder selves accountable. You know like if he observes me doing something bad. You know isn't respectful. That he would feel the freedom to approach me later and talk about it. And i feel the same way with him and so there was relieved. This is dialogue about it. And so i am very grateful that we were able to sort of a journey on this together. 'cause it's really hard if you don't get a lot of questions about that a lot of times. Yeah but what. I'm hearing from your store anyway. Is that you didn't have expectations. You didn't expect him to just changes mind immediately because you had which is logical and emotionally intuitive and you also it was a dialogue and i think that those are some takeaways that for those listeners saying my partner is not yet on board. I have learned a lot more than my partner has irises saying about no expectations. Like don't expect somebody to just change your mind just because you do and to have a dialogue and that.

"Iris thank you so much for coming on the mindful mama. Podcast is thank you so much for having me. I'm i'm looking forward to talking to you. Because like i said we talk a lot about changing generational patterns here and this is what your book. Untiring is kind of all about is changing these generational patterns. And i love the way that you talk about like in your first chapter. You talk about the saying tiger never changes it's stripes and then you talk about how You know these stripes can actually you kind of equate them to kind of scars left behind by wounds and trauma responses. And you say that. Instead of recognizing that deep down they do not reflect our true selves. We learned to define ourselves through them taking on what are essentially coping mechanisms as part of our our density or personality. Wow that was like that. Just rings true. I see that so so much. So i'm just wondering if maybe we could with that in mind you can kind of dive in and tell us about like what tells a little about your story like how. What were some of those stripes that you got in from your own parenting when you can sure so I am chinese american. And so i think one thing that i mentioned in the book was also just living up in a growing up in america and living in a white dominant society just those messages that we automatically received from the world around us that we are different that we are other that we don't belong that we have to prove ourselves and prove our worth in our belonging so i think that was like not necessarily connected to my parenting civically but just these messages that i was receiving from the world around me. It's really feeling like Yet like i wasn't good enough in the world is that i needed to prove myself. Those were some of the wounds that i received As an asian american. And then i think also.

'cause the original day the twenty first of june was judged to be too high risk because we had grubbing rights of iris. We had the delta variants which is the indian sub type two which is spreading more than the government had anticipated and there were not enough people it was judged who had received both doses of vaccine which we another critical to head off the delta veterans who had been vaccinated which meant we were risk of a much greater search if numbers so the case was made let's defer to the nineteenth to july. This will give more time for more people to have more days vaccine in other words. We'll we'll get more.

"All fred time for your plan to the week plan of the week. Mark is iris. Now when i was a boy and with the older folks. I had to be careful now but with the older folks of that day I was in the cemetery at memorial day big affair because it was the the the veterans from the first world war plus already some from the second world war and so on and they called iris flags now. There is a yellow flag. Iris in terms of common name. But they're they're a plant that can grow anywhere from six to ten inches tall in various kinds on up to four and five feet and one of the reasons. I made them the planet that week. This week i was headed into call it downtown columbus area and area that had a home and apparently a vacant lot next to it owned by the homeowner or whomever i i was in traffic. I was slowed down to real speeds and i glanced off to the right. I don't know how many colors of iris i saw. They were standing three and four feet tall dark purple reddish light yellow pink. A cream i. It's a shame. I didn't have time to go back. Stop and check them out it. It was just a grand display. And i'm i'm supposing. If i had gone in there to count there have been something well over a hundred plants in flower. Full floor right now and. That's just fantastic now. That's that's the one called the bearded. Iris yeah and then probably beyond the bearded. Iris which is one of the parents. There are hundreds of cultivars where people homeowners as well as professional people can cross them from one to the next and create their own. Put their own name on it I've heard a talk one time where the lady spoke to how many hybrids their word. I don't remember now but it. It was an bordering on an astronomic number. And i think based on the way she gave her talk and the detail of it almost to the point of boredom but i think she knew the name of every one of them. She knew the people that made the cross and so on. I'm sure she's long gone now. But lordy what a head she had for memory and and irish in particular. That was that was her thing. Oh yeah that's my thing too. Because i love i will have little one. Patch right under the mailbox. Outweigh waist-high yup. And they're absolutely in their glory this week. Color yours mine. Are there the bearded. They have to the fuzzy center and they had their purple and clean very good and this. I'm going to say one of the more common ones and probably one of the hardest ones and it's also one that is most apt to have iris bore. Now that's about the only thing that can bother them other than being drowned..

People got stimulus checks and other relief payments that Iris has to take a closer look at and it still as returns from 2019 zipped through as well. Marketplaces Nancy Marshall Ganz explains what's going on. Samuel McConnell and his wife, Wendy, filed their 2020 tax return in February. But they're still waiting for their $2900 refund. The iris just tells them you return is being processed. With no other information, no information. Why? No, it's always tempting to blame things on your kids. But this time the delay really could be due to McConnell's daughter, Maggie. Well since Maggie was born in January. Of 2020. The Iris didn't know about her. So McConnell claimed Maggie's Cove, it relief payments on their 2020 taxes that may have put them in that backlog of 30 million returns. Aaron Collins is the I.

The other Cryptocurrency, the second largest eat your ECM lost 18% so more than Bitcoin. There seems to be like three reasons why this is happening, Kevin. The number one reason for the plunge is what a lot of people have been talking about. Analysts. The economists are saying the crypt of currency market just Huge with frostiness and well, overvalued. I mean, there's a coin last week on and I'm not endorsing any certain around a Cryptocurrency but do going it's sort 400% in a week, so that's just huge. The second reason is ah. It's unverifiable report, though, was put out on Twitter that claimed that the U. S. Treasury was looking into charging several financial institution. For using crypto currencies and also from money laundering. There is a movement by the iris just to let everybody know called Operation Hidden Treasure, which coincides with this. Ah, unclaimed report on verified So that is a real thing that the iris is coming down on people laundering money and not paying taxes on Cryptocurrency. And the third reason why this just might be is run the aftermath. All we talked about last week Queen Base when public on the NASDAQ and it ran up, and now it's just this is kind of like the hangover. That's happening s o, But there's people out there saying, you know, Bitcoin is is going to be with us to stay, and it's also competing against the US dollar. Well, and

How to Get Your California Stimulus Check

"Taxes can be complicated and filing taxes for 2020 might be even more tricky because many people have changed jobs or worked for multiple employers. But it's more important than ever to fire taxes correctly now because both the state and federal government used tax filings to determine who is eligible to receive pandemic relief payments. Additionally, some counties have local relief funds available with additional requirements. Joining me to Wade through the confusion is KQED reporter Carlos Cammarata, normally Carlos. There are lots of different types of financial assistance out there. How do I know I'm getting all the help? I'm eligible for the first two rounds of stainless checks the federal government sent out were based on 2019 income, However, the third round of eighties based on 2020 income, every taxpayer who turned up to $75,000 qualifies. That's why it's so important to file your taxes soon as you can. If your income went down or you got married or had Children, 2020. You could let the iris know about these changes and therefore potentially received more than the 1400 based credits. On top of that every California heard lesson 30,000 last year qualifies for a $600 rebate, Thanks for the golden state stimulus undocumented workers who father taxes with an item. Should also receive an additional $600 to make up for not receiving the second federal stimulus check. At the local level. San Francisco offers the working families credit a rebate of $250 for families who made less than $56,844 in 2020. But you need to apply through the city's human services agency. So that's a separate application. So residents in San Francisco who qualify need to keep that in mind that after the father taxes, they need to fill out this extra application. So all these

You don't have to say anything. That's just amazing. Yeah, it's pretty amazing that people to know what you're actually doing and that you're not alone because that's the thing the Greek grief anyway can feel isolating but losing a child. I think it's even more so than to have an organization that can support you knowing that there's people that can support you as huge but in your community to have it just be a part of the community and everyone knows that that resources there what an impact that has to make for families. Well how long it has to be?

"Iris been parts of borrows freshman season declaring he belonged in division three how much like Alabama Ellis use made the transformation from defense first conservative offense to a big play offense as the engine of the team from a coaching standpoint how much credit this coach in the LSU staff deserve and being competent that barrel can be the trigger man to an unbeaten team that's number one in the nation yeah I think it's pretty incredible you know for years they talked about changing the offense you know we're gonna open it up this year review more past friendly and when push came to shove it was one of your tight and get you two running backs and try to keep it right keep it tight but they really did go full force into the changes you're we saw the Texas game when they are late the game they're up by seven or six points and they're throwing the football for a touchdown as opposed to run between the tackles so I think they were completely body and they brought in a new offense of coordinator this year and I think it was the it just the the year for a change borrow a transfer from Ohio state field to transfer to Ohio state young a prize recruit to Ohio state is certainly could be the top trail in the voting what does that say about the magnitude of Buckeyes football a pretty big in urban Meyer what a recruiter and you know yeah I think that the thing that surprises me Jim is that they still have a stay was you take last year's Ohio state team with urban Meyer said coach and put up against this year's Ohio state team I would favor this year's Ohio state team by seventeen points I mean they've got a much better defense better run game there are far superior team but the guy that bought all the pieces together with urban Meyer if chase young and played the two games in suspended for how much might that have impacted his candidacy for the Heisman well he would have had productive games or the mission you gave me didn't make a tackle so as you know as much as the D. office of was key in on him to not have any stats I don't think you're gonna end up getting a Heisman but I think it did have a big impact in it as well as the other factor Jim would be that you know if you're gonna vote for Ohio state guide you vote for chase young or do you vote for Justin fields or hacked pointer JK Dobbins for crying out loud good point they're they're kind of negating each other in a sense absolutely and you know you're all you don't want to vote all three guys for the Heisman so most folks are gonna pick one and I bet you there were some guys to pick fields in our some guys have picked Dobbins interest in guys to pick young army navy America's game Phil explain what this game means to both academies every I think it's for the best robberies and in all of college football Jim I put it right there at the top and it's something that's played yeah I remember these teams were both maybe two and ten coming into the game and it was still a big game it doesn't matter what's on the line I just love the this setting the environment and and the kids that apply there I mean did to commit to the military and then playing a game like this I think it's phenomenon was that's a really good football games in this series yeah twenty third ranked mischief mid ship in play in the liberty bowl against Kansas state what impresses you most about this navy team well I think it was what cochineal Modelo told me in the spring he said the last year they were using too many quarterbacks used three different order back still we sat one offense up this year he was going to set the offense **** tire Lee behind Malcolm Perry and Malcolm Perry shoe shine he looked like about comparing from two years ago led the team in rushing with fifteen hundred yards six point three yards for Kerry and good good very capable passer he surprised me a couple of games which have pinpoint accuracy and then the other big change for navy this year over last year was the defense they have a lot of returning starters but last year they gave up four hundred twenty six yards per game this year just three forty two played a lot better on the defensive side of the ball as well all right from two thousand to the twenty fifteen Phil navy one fourteen straight in this rivalry the cadets turn the tide in twenty sixteen having won three straight since how might bay five and seventeen making four straight with an upset well the good news is this if you take a look at the last five games jam they've all been decided by seven points or less in general you always go with the robbery dog that's the case here in the other big factor is wanted bandages navy has a special plan in a conference like the American conferences they run the option so the teams that they plan a weekly basis don't face the option don't have players that can imitate the option in practice especially at the speed that navy runs at army negates that had the effect if you look at the series there is one fourteen straight unders in this series because both teams know how to begin to play against the option then have the speed and practice them delete the option in practice which makes it usually a low scoring game at low scoring games lead upsets and so we've got a series were the underdogs covered five in a row both the fences know each other that's army wins this game keep a low score to make a game of the fourth quarter hi Phil we have plenty of time to size up the college football playoff but the college bowl season kicks off in a week among those early kick offs which games have your attention most and why well not necessarily and early kick off but I tell you what I want to see that Alabama game against Michigan I think that that is going to be a very intriguing game you wonder which Michigan players are going to show up for a which the Alabama players going to shop Ford if both teams fully show up for it wow we could have a heck of a game.

What's the most embarrassing thing that you guys find about one another? You can't be too shameless to not be embarrassed. Yeah pick something. Well I'll start with that. I would say Jason didn't use to have much of a filter. That's a huge surprise. You say used to didn't actually have developed looked quite a filter actually and so I wouldn't. I don't think there's much I'm embarrassed of these days but there were a lot of times in the past where I was kicking. Can you say that I can tell you. I know from experience. I've been that guy more than once How about you? What would she embarrass you with? I don't think there's anything that she impresses me about him. Usually worried about myself. It's my own behavior. Is there an annoying annoying element anything that annoys you about her. I what she calls prickly in the morning. It don't want anyone to talk to me there. Awhile I wake up and I wanna like hey and talk and do all that. And she's just like not having it but that's that's fine and again I'm right there with you. I am not a morning person at all. What's flippant it on on a more positive note? What's the most inspiring thing that you you guys find about one another? Oh my gosh you now. I think we challenge each other. We Challenge Ballengee so much end well ultimately in a good way but it doesn't come without US locking horns in the law probably. It doesn't seem like a good way when it when it happens you know no it is. It's always a good way but it's not always comfortable like we constantly. There's there's ideas and things that we're just tossing around in our heads like you know and we're both pretty strongly opinionated people and `and we don't always agree. We don't always agree politically. We don't always agree on a lot of things and so we we heads a lot and that I mean to me. That's that inspires me. It makes me have to challenge my beliefs all the time and go and you know we may in the moment and I feel like we really can lock horns a lot but we always come to good conclusions from that stuff and so I think we're just we're inspire each the other to be better all the time. It's a minute to me. That's a crucial element of of a healthy successful relationship. What does she so so I wouldn't be seeing everyday? If she wasn't I would find any excuse to just push it to later in the day and yeah she'll just get up and I'll see like she's getting her PT. Gear on Jack. I'm not going to be worn opt. I'm going to do it in the same thing. Where are when we have when we have differences of opinion that she can lay things out in a way where I've got to step back and reassess what I actually think what my beliefs are and let go of some of my preconceived notions and then think about got it and come back and and whatever so mentally super inspiring physically as well? Yeah I mean to me what I gather out of both of those things is that And again it's a crucial element of a good relationship. Is that you both. You know push each other. You know in a very healthy and positive way. And I think that that's awesome to hear What is the best vacation occasion? Spot that you guys have been two together. What would you say mean wall? We go to forks every summer. That's pretty great. We got married in Guam really. Were you stationed there at the time. No I was always on deployment for pay and come out here and let's get like how can we keep our families and everyone else out and we just kind of low really and you know it in the fourth of July week they're like hey everything's shutting down. There's nothing going on. If you WANNA have your spouse has come out with a couple tiki torches and cooler alert beer with great. Yeah what a cool story. So I mean that married and Guam was great. We just went up to Banff emphan Canada. And that's a place. We're definitely going to go back. We always go to places that are like out in the middle of our. We're not like city people so our vacation spots are always like beautiful rivers and Munsan thinks like that you mentioned forks and whereas now that's that's that's actually. I spent some time in my childhood there. My sister lives there now. It's a river in the very northern part of California way out in the middle of nowhere and we go there every summer a week or so. And it's just it's so remote there's no we're just off Grad and gorgeous gorgeous river nearest little town little town three hours from the nearest swimming. It's not there's not like motor craft and shit like you can just hang out and that's cool. I love places like that airs and Mountain Lions and all wild places great night yeah it's awesome. What is the hardest thing for you guys in terms of staying married over the well over a decade that you have been? It's been the hardest part about staying together. The hardest part is probably the amount of time that I've been gone. And then sometimes the the the state that I'm in when I come back from deployments and planet Afghanistan in two thousand nine was when I came back. Doc I just every stinking little thing would set me off. Tirade and Iris was really really really patient with me and then when she told me hey man. You're not the same person you were when you left. Yeah could you please go talk. Talk to one of the sites and I actually listened to her and then hit up one of the sites and started working through a lot of the issues that I had from deployment alignment which which are when you go eight months. And every every Dang a stressor is a life or death stressor it reinforces all those neural pathways for that response. And then you come back and someone cuts you off and traffic or you have a disagreement on where you're GonNa Plant a fluke fruit tree and your body's like oh just go to this route. Let me go high order real quick and so that's it but I think we're at a point now where there's there's not really much I would share. Which is the most challenging John ging? I mean we've had a pretty great marriage we've been married for about fourteen years and I think ultimately we respect one another so much and that and that's just the key we have so much deep respect for one another either and so we can get past everything else you know. Yeah we argue over stuff. We bicker we squabble. But it's all stuff that's making us better ultimately absolutely we we just respect each other and that was a that was a little bit of a rough spot for us not in any horrible way but just going he. He came back different than he left. And I could see it as I would talk to him on the phone as he was deployed. I hear his voice starting to change. You know I could hear ear him just getting more distant and having this edge in his voice which I'd never heard before and that was a particularly challenging deployment in the he was dealing with and when he came back yes it was very he was pretty tightly wrapped it it was also right around the same time. We had her first child. So you know already. It's a kind of a struggle just learning how to survive arrive in that different state and thank goodness. He tends to listen to me. Even if we have to battle it out a little bit to get there. He usually listens to me and like he said Yeah. I'm like unique to. You've got some things you need to work through and instead of being pigheaded and going on you know I'm fine. It's your fault fall is your problem you know. He listened and started to go see a psych and that really helped a lot but yeah there were there. Were a few times where we were definitely challenge a little bit with that and the way the way that the reason one of the reasons I listened to her. It's it's not always iris telling me what to do. And then I'm doing it. It's she will oftentimes on compromise or change or opinion based on discussions that we have on different issues number one number two what I also want to say. Is that diplomatic Afghanistan. Those were some of the best moments of my life laying down on that double paddle and the fifty cal and put it out there like the Double Bass Drum on a slayer song. uh-huh into the Taliban gives me goosebumps. That was great. Those were amazing moments in my life. That that if I put in the top ten or right up the top ten with our kids being born and seeing my kids get their own stuff so I don't want people to feel like oh well was horrible. Yeah there are some hard parts about the deployment but it was great and I would do it again. It's like with with most things in in life. Those are Consummate examples of double edged sword. Moments you know and and like with most things Things that are are worth at our hard and painful painful and what have you and and similar. Similarly experiences like that Exhibit that same thing. Well I'll tell you something about that as well. Being the wife of someone who's deployed for long periods of time and going through things that are challenging like that is I also knew that those were some of the best times of his life. That's what he'd spent his whole life trying to get to right like I understand that and so I never was like. Oh you're leaving leaving. You're leaving us again on deployments and stuff. Oh you need to get out of the seal team's be with your family like I. I understand that people need purpose. They need a mission. He had the job that was so important to him and to our country and everything else and I like I put in my time doing that being home doing stuff knowing it if I go this this is what is important to me now now. It's my turn. This is what I want to do. He has my back. One hundred percent. you give and take nick exactly. I am curious. In if you could expand on the instances where you noticed him being different more specifically when he got home vice on the phone but I am curious if if you could provide some context on things that happened where you Kinda Cock your head like you fucking change. Can you give us a couple of tangible examples. where I guess the to that kind kind of pop out in my mind out of curiosity would be you know if there are any times we like it scared you what you saw or you were just concerned or worried or combination or what what what are some kind of examples well to start with the very first night he got home from that deployment? I wake up at like three three in the morning and he standing next to the bed holding a gun and that was the first time I had to go. What am I dealing dealing with here? You know it was a little out of character and something startled him. I think the dogs barked at something the thing and he just instantly jumped out of bed and grabbed a gun. And you know in that moment. I'm I don't know what's going through his head and that's when I was like okay. I'm.

"They make an appeal whatever they want to if a free gift or whatever like help or however they choose to do it and then just say think a minute is brought to you by this thinking that is brought to you take a minute is making a difference in these many nations so let's talk about how it all started it goes back to a change in direction that Jan and the IRS did not see coming yes this is a report about how this radio segment went global in all these languages and formats it's also just as much about listening and pursuing God in those moments in those seasons when our heavenly father wants to change our course change our life course and unexpect- the change in direction at the most well known missionary of all time. Paul he experienced this as well Paul wrote most of what we now call all the New Testament and Paul is the one who I hated Christians and then became a Christian through an encounter with Jesus after the resurrection on the road the Damascus Paul preached the message of Christ and started churches in the Roman Empire and beyond and in this pulse plan was to go to Asia but Act Sixteen six tells us Paul and his team were forbidden to speak the word in Asia not by the government but by the Holy Spirit and then Paul was redirected this is axe sixteen nine and a vision appeared to Paul in the night a man of Macedonia I was standing there urging him and saying come over to Macedonia and help us so instead of Asia Paul went toward Europe it's an event that we so as the Macedonian Call God's still redirects changes the chorus we think we're on for Jannine Iris that changed indirection came when they were denied visa-renewal back in the nineties the government of that country essentially said you can't live here anymore that was it so so we figured well God's in control and and we moved on and gaining and keeping permission to live in a foreign country this is a challenge for so many of our workers and partners living in four nations it's relatively easy to visit most countries for a few days weeks even months it's like if you want to go as a tourist but if you want to stay if you wanna live there there are a lot more questions more forms more paperwork so for Janet Iris if not where they had been in Southeast Asia how about Fiji Island Nation in the south Pacific before they even got there Jan felt this tug toward radio and this went down of all times during bedtime with kids what happened was the largest spoke to me in my heart one night I was putting boys down to bed and I knew if it was loaded onto pass so the week we arrived in Fiji again we had no experience or anything I was asked to do a radio program there was a brand new Christian radio station fledgling radio station was trying to make a go of it and I it was taking off and so I don't know why me or why us but some like well evidently the Lord this may be the Lord so I just started driving in and doing it live every Sunday morning just it was a ten minute program it was also still very third world you could hear the roosters crowing and the Times I can sometimes yeah great and then other times you like oh my goodness jen had been teaching at the Bible College in Fiji but this radio thing really started to take off Mary Loma Loma who was probably the lead television anchor in Fiji and she was a new Christian I baptized we were just in Fiji a year and a half before they transferred us and yet in that year and a half the favor God gave us with the the media community and so she then got behind it and she knew all these station managers in the Pacific so she would just you know back in those days facts them this is how old and and they'd be yeah let's let's put it on and see see if it's any good you know and then so that was the very beginning days Samoa another island nation one of the I countries of expansion iris was born and raised in Samoa her family is there well we met in some way actually jen graduated from Evangelist University came over to work with his brother Randy and at the time I was going to school here in America I had a government scholarship and studying at a university in Texas and I had just given my life to the Lord the summer before that come home and so I met John the next year when he came from the states and so we just we became friends almost immediately and then when I came back the following summer things just seemed to click and I never never expected to marry somebody okay who wasn't from my own home country and I know that he did neither let alone Mary missionary so yeah it's been it's been a great life yeah it's been a it was hot it was very hot leaving home my family wasn't saved and that spin beautiful how faithful God has been every time we've gone home after that almost every time one of my family members came to the Lord got saved and so now all but one of my sisters the thing is we try to stay anonymous and so a lot of people when we first started airing on someone didn't know who is doing and we wanted it away there was one time when we stopped at a grocery store on the way to the way somewhere and Jan into by coke and all he said go to the cashier and Xi Mu should look to them and she's just on that she did recognize his voice so yeah he does have a very distinct voice we received a letter from the principle of a heist cool in an island called Kitty bus in the Pacific and he thanked us for think a minute he said that they began every day the high school country Guy his name I'll just say his name was veto which is David in Psalm one very very talented very charismatic in all would host television programs and beauty pageants and talent shows all this but he worked at the radio station the name of the radio station that we started on there was a magic FM and about three quarters of the nation listen to that one station so we had an amazing audience and and so the program just became very popular number one within a couple of weeks and he listened every day to be to did and after about five months on the Lord completely just set him free and it was it was through through thinking about it and through the messages and programs and he was just totally changed and transformed married has three children and that's almost twenty years ago and so you know just amazing lasting fruit so eh or the radio it's it's the Gospel it's the truth is is taken by the technology and broadcasted that the spirits speaks when they hear that human voice and they make that connection the spirit's voice just like industrial preaching you know whether it's behind a pulpit or a Mike I think a minutes it could change everything.

"This is messengers the plan was to stay to serve in this country for lifetime well you know in actuality we weren't per se kicked out but what happened was we were at the end of our term in South East Asia Nineteen Ninety five all my teaching I was teaching in a Bible school or Seminary you know advance theology and all that in in the language so we'd worked really hard at learning the language I can't just brush by the commitment that was made here to learn this foreign language it's difficult it's it's a big deal and Jan tells me they went all in after five months it's not that long John reached a point where he could preach simple sermon in eighteen months a year and a half John had reached a fluency where he could teach theology in this in this foreign language Jen told me it was meant a long days and nights of study and anyone who's learn a foreign language and try to use that language before you know that there's these embarrassing mistakes along the way after all that after all that work the door closed to use that foreign language and it was really a surprise to everyone but just toward the end of our term we would get an annual renewal and got the letter and it said this would be your very last renewal we and so I showed it to Rotherham Kenny and boy his face just dropped and knew immediately and so it was just a crazy random seemingly thing but none of the other missionaries had happened to them so it was very very hard to understand because we were ready to come back in our second term just hit the ground running you know the foundation of Adelaide relationships language all of that yeah no there's no appeal whatsoever you know and and there's no reason they don't have to give a reason it's it's purely Arbitrary Creek Assembly of God world impact this is messengers reports from people who bring the message of hope around the world. I'm Tom Murray the mission's Pastor at Oak Creek we're thankful for the many great churches with a heart to reach the lost plant churches train the next generation of leaders and serve the poor and suffering with compassion. It's our hearts share these reports because Psalm Ninety six three says publish his glorious deeds among the nation's tell everyone about the amazing things he does post the new report the second Tuesday of every month if you're new to messengers this is a great time to go ahead and click subscribe be sure to stay to the end of this report she's going to be sharing some of you comments and then update from a missionary who's just getting started in Europe this is report number three think a minute the Janet Iris Produce a daily Radio Segment called think a minute iris came up with the name while we wanted to have something minute in there and so we just kind of bounced back and forth and just arrived at that the idea when you hear the income on sure I'll give you a minute even though it's not actually one minute it is three minutes so as my brother says that's false thinking minutes it could change.
