iDisciple Podcast: Impacting the World



Francis Chan and Pat Bradley join the iDisciple Podcast to share how they are teaming up to change the lives of people around the world who were born into horrible situations.

Francis Chan is the founder and president of Crazy Love Ministries, and bestselling author of Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God, and co-author of You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity.

Pat Bradley is the Founder and CEO of Crisis Aid International, a non-profit that serves in some of the most war-torn and poverty-stricken places on Earth, battling famine, disease, disasters, and sex trafficking.

Francis and his wife Lisa spent their 20th wedding anniversary serving with Crisis Aid International in East Africa and came face-to-face with some of the most extreme poverty on Earth. After coming home from the trip, Francis and Lisa were moved to do something drastic to address the horrible issues they witnessed. They self-published their next book on marriage, You and Me Forever, and committed to donate all of the proceeds to organizations fighting extreme poverty.

We pray that the powerful stories shared in this episode move you to make a difference in the world!

Key Takeaways

  • Francis describes some of the horrific things he saw in East Africa as “…what the world would be devoid of God” but also explains how they were able to see hope in those hopeless places.

  • How the Chan’s book about marriage, You and Me Forever, puts a strong emphasis on you and your spouse’s shared “mission”.
  • Why we should be so aware of our fragility as humans and focus on making an impact with our lives right now.
  • Francis implores us all as believers to seek out the calling that God has for our lives and pursue it wholeheartedly.
