As women, we are all unique, and yet we share common ground as we navigate the calm and the storms that life brings. Whether single, married, young or old, we desire this podcast to be a companion on your journey, a reminder of the Anchor available in every season of life. Through stories, teaching, interviews and panel discussions we hope to be a source of strength, encouragement, and community.

Life on Mission Ep.2 | Kelly McSparran in Peru

Welcome back for our second episode in our, “Life on Mission” series. Throughout this series, which will run indefinitely over the duration of this podcast channel, we will not only interview those going out on short-term trips. We will also be speaking with women who have lived abroad! We really love these stories because they are focused on spiritual growth, from those that are called to mission (as we all are)! Today, we hear from Kelly McSparran, our Communications Director here at Mission Hills, on her time in Peru. Kelly and her husband Ryan lived in Peru for a bit at the beginning of their marriage and learned lessons about being public with your faith, growing closer to God to solidify your marriage, and travel do’s and don’ts in an incredible part of the world.
