Jesus said blessed are the persecuted and they are suffering big time right now. This is my belief international in 19-year-old Ari was beaten by her own father and violated by local authorities and order crime was simply that she gave her life to Jesus Christ after leaving radical Islam. They need Bibles in order to endure and persevere. That's why Truth Network and Bible teamed up to sin. God's word to 3500 persecuted believers around the world at five dollars avoidable hundred dollars since 20 oh 800 word 800 worth 800 password or give a County and Atlantic Mayor Mema with storytime Mema and answered prayer for stories that point children to God on the Truth Network for kids are chosen Truth Network podcast is starting just a few seconds and show I hit share it the most of all thank he for listening to The Truth Podcast Network. This is good Truth Network what are you doing to equip the next generation to change the world for Jesus to love the world in deed, not just in word but in deed with the love of Jesus and that's what my friend Mike is doing with a ministry called the fellows and they are in the truth world headquarters right now and without the microphone my girl these people and what are you doing in my conference room.

I snuck in CSI might gotten currently the director for the Piedmont fellows and so we've got Naomi Leah bin and Justin here with us, and it's a group of recent college graduates who have relocated here to the Triad area to work to worship, to serve and to learn intentionally of her 10 month period to help set them up to serve and honor Christ for the rest of your life and career. At the end of the 10 month. The very last place you bring them is the Truth Network so I don't know if that's good or bad.

It's like, well, didn't get any worse down there but were so glad you're here. And you know since the Aussie, I would've let you guys anywhere near this place, you know.

20 years ago where for starting because I'm thinking hey who needs a next-generation manner, just annoying in their they think they know everything now. I wish you guys would come back every day because there's a need is there, Mike, you're still young yourself. But there's a need for us to get these folks equipped and empowered and encouraged and discipled as they really are will change some absolutely yeah I mean everybody's going to be a leader is just what kind of leader is going to be and so we want to put other Christ followers who love the Lord who have experience and wisdom in their lives so that they can witness it model it after them. We got Naomi Leah bin Josten and we got a bunch of our true theme and here's well that are part of this great fantail in our social media superstar we got Toby are also true for inter-Dave Compton one of our veteran Truth Network Franzen DJs manager stated he does all he preaches.

He sings great man of God go on of our truth radio partners who just walked out the room to fill in order for Bibles. The white Boolean glacier supply Mike, what is the nature of all these reasoning. One night they might be the living room of a missionary, having Bible study the next night they might be at a bank talking to a Christian bank about how they have devotions every morning.

What about the diversity of these beaver face and that each of using tells by your favorite fellows experience rent which is bought, so I want them first to know that they were designed and made to work. That is how God has created us in there's dignity in all of work. There's not just one special segment that is glorifying to the Lord. That's all honoring to the Lord. And so for them to see different folks in different areas and will talk about vocation and calling not just where you work, but the calling and how you serve how you lose your home. The way that you learn you know all these things are your placed where you're called and said assure them as many people who are honoring the Lord as many different spaces so they can say you know what I could see myself doing that one day I want to be like this person said this little rafter is tremendous.

The ministries called the fellows. It's almost like a semi gap year program that takes college graduates young people on their way undergirding a way to second. Maybe I could hang around and get mentored little bit, and while were figured out what to do. Let's jump into some real life kingdom work and actually get paid to do a job in but then go and hang out at places like the Truth Network and learn and meet and see and tour and sponge all in the start with the Naomi now me what's been your favorite part about your time here with the fellows and on one hand to Mike and then we can scan to go around. And if you get kinda states writers. Other you don't have some the pops in your mind keep passing Mike gator ago hi, I'm the enemy, and two things come to mind when I think about what I've gotten out of the fellows program. The first is the importance of being in a Christian community and living alongside other believers and not relying on yourself everything and realizing that God created us for community and not something I've experienced in this program being in the church family health church and having a host family and a mentor and all of this kind of things. The second has to do with work-study program focuses a lot on living out your faith in your work and as a biochemistry major, I Christ I was can be a doctor and I've changed my mind since then. And one thing that I really learned from this program is that you can do God's kingdom work anywhere and in any kind of job in any kind of capacity there's a line from the hand that I was trying something a day keeps coming to mind, and it is content to fill a little space. If God be glorified and so that's is something that has been on my mind and heart a lot this year in the Spokane saline we had something that I've really been learning throughout the fellows program is that mentoring piece is huge. Really, if you're not living in community with other Christian believers, then it's like Naomi said, hard to get that advice when you need it even like so coming out of college. A lot of people lose their faith just because they don't have a solid Christian home church that they are around all the time so really having the program to give you that in into the church. They have you help out with service in the church. If you mentor and host family. Those kind of an unknown give you that built-in mentoring opportunity where you can be mentor that also you can mentor other younger people as well. So that's been really an important piece that I've learned from the program and and definitely hope to continue even after graduation hello my name is Justin and my to poop on the left foot is definitely one of the speakers and the mental should that the program has provided us with a speaker because of the truth.

Neville has put us pizza and the 12 and she was about all the great equipment and stuff, the view is that they might halt best speaker in this program was but nothing not only the truth that would speak about Osos because from all the mood back in August with the shed. A testimony to shed the stories life expends the disputed Jenny as well. Walking with Christ in the shed. All of this tons of information and tips and tricks from the industry that the bin that some speakers who offer the network industry from the technology sector from manufacturing industries so many more that my director has been the introduce them to us and second part is the mental ship so currently my mental is financial software program aware. He develops apps for business.

His publicist and yet shed to me how to a view the progress and also how he has met Christ in his Jenny and how he has elaborated and teach me somebody's lessons this doesn't called and actually draws is that she found an opportunity in the workplace the marketplace to be a marketplace minister into to work and earn a good wage and be a witness for Christ through the fellows program in this process. So what encouragement we guess whether people really like our specialties were injured. Colby had a great question earlier Colby owner puts on the spot and maybe you can ask this question never raises her hand will take yesterday so that your fellows appointment is coming to an end relatively soon, so where are y'all going next. What is your next. Maybe that's a job location or anything like that. So really, what's your next so I am planning on going to grad school for either clinical psychology or counseling psychology. In the meantime, I will be moving back to Oregon and is working for a year to get my work experience before I start at school program so off the program.

I'll be working the same job. My company has offered me a full-time position as a eke on the specialists that are currently working to its my visa so I can send them make a long guess shows his true thought comes to A mouthful of Peter double row team members shared by Dave coffin you been in radio a long time one of you people may have been a radial little longer than me, but that depends on if you count those years that I was still in my moms Tommy on a radio station with her dad. Dave was it like to see these young people in here are the fellows program.

The rearview date learn about the Lord and really really intentionally think about regional growth. Christ well I'm sitting here in total loss to the calls been encouraged just by being around these young professionals, young Christian professionals of anybody have the right inside where the going got goals and they've got a plan. They've also got the Lord Jesus Christ in their heart that's going to just take them further down the road with with their profession. So I'm encouraged today.

Anyone else was sure think about this a case like going Christian bookstore owner Dr. Moore loves Jesus, has eight kids with amazing names is been on her show before sponsor Truth Network what your thoughts, your word on this is your your your work with a lot of errors with homeschool material thousands of people come your stores are also material for your thoughts. That's a big part of our mission is trying to equip young people or the like is coming for whatever career the going to go into and it's in a different focus than what the fellows program has, but it's is a great encouragement to see these young people that are open in their testimony for the Lord and are about to move into the workplace and into ministry and into trying to shine that light, but brother Davis is into this world.

It's a lot of darkness need some light shined into that such an encouragement to meet today as well. In our mission of Truth Network is were to talk about that a second after we say goodbye to our overall solicitors listen true thought of Stu Epperson interviewing the fellows young people that are here being equipped and ten-month program the graduate soon to change role for Christ to ministry through workplace divisions, whatever. However, God's gift and we got a violinist in here. We have some trilingual people in here from the other side of the pond and that's our chalice rework blessing them with some books on missions because we really want to think about the 2.5 billion people on planet Earth you've never heard about Jesus were all get over here guys like me. We need the young people to be passionate reaching them. So we wanted to serve in pouring you guys must get like Mike is been doing and dad and all the folks that are part of this fellows program was to take away how you will leave our listeners with a challenge and also gives the website ministry. So we are actually part of a national network called the fellows initiative and so there's about 30 programs across the country, said the fellows that would encourage you to visit their this other amazing work like what were doing across the country. One take away is is that God has designed you in his own image as a creator to work and there is dignity and everything that you do and so I would say whatever it is that you find yourself doing do it unto the Lord, and that in and of itself is a ministry there still certainly a need that we needed verbally proclaim the gospel, but don't diminish everything. The Lord set before you. What a great way to proclaim the gospel than as a biochemist or as a medical assistant or someone working in administration or someone doing whatever God's gift to you to do finance and Econ in IT and code writing so what a blessing. Thank you all for being here. I guess we could say the fellows on three as loud as we can. Like his little cheers think about our listeners. They want to hear go is all right get involved be a mentor to someone being encouragement you see a young person out there love on baila find a piece of pizza baila milkshake hang out with them could try to fix people just leave their friend.

Let's introduce them to the ultimate fixer. His name is Jesus Christ this is the Truth Network
