We Are Not The Hero | Jean Johnson

We Are Not The Hero | Jean Johnson

"Missions is not about place, but about people." God has been writing Jean Johnson's story since the beginning. God began to soften her heart towards the nations when displaced Southeast Asians came to her school in Minneapolis. This started a journey for her reaching out to Cambodians locally when she wasn't able to actually travel or live in Cambodia full time. Then she had the opportunity to work for 16 years in Cambodia. Today, she is a missionary, author, and leader of a non-profit organization.

Transportation Challenges on the Mission Field

Transportation Challenges on the Mission Field

Zach's story is ultimately God's story. Listen as he shares about how God led him and his family on a journey, with some unexpected twists, that ultimately led him to the Mission Transportation team at ITEC. The Mission Transportation team strives to work with those on the mission field who are struggling with transportation issues through either land, air, or sea. As technology continues to progress at a rapid rate, there are great opportunities to use off-the-shelf, cost-effective solutions, or to develop new or modify existing transportation solutions to compliment Great Commission participation.
