This is the Way: Following God One Pedal at a Time, with Doug Search – EM271
The Bible is God’s letter to all people, and it’s central in teaching us about who God is. Douglas Search joins the show to share about how he is working to get more Bibles in more hands across the world. Doug has travelled to places like Kenya, New Zealand, South Africa, and Ghana to bring Megavoice audio Bibles to people who don’t have one. For a few years, Doug worked at a Bible school in Jerusalem, and the story of how he got there is a testimony of God’s faithfulness. Over and over, he mentions how God led him in ways he never expected. Doug is passionate about teaching the Bible to people and seeing people grow in their love for the Scriptures.
