Trail Life USA – Hope for the Nation
Greg, Pat, and Steve share the exciting news of something new that is happening in the nation: Trail Life USA. Released at the beginning of 2014, Trail Life’s vision is to be “the premier national character development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible husbands, fathers, and citizens.”
This is so vital to our society. Looking at what is happening in our education system, culture, and families, God is being removed and values abandoned. After hours of video games and indoor entertainment, young boys don’t know about God’s adventure and what is available. Everything is pushing young boys away from what it means to be a man. Currently there are troops starting across the nation in every state. Be encouraged as you hear their journeys that have taken place to arrive in what we are now seeing, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: Texas, raccoons, outdoors, adventure, World War II, relationships, and fathers.
Lessons Learned from the Vietnam War: We Can Win a Nation with the Gospel
Greg, Pat, and Steve continue the conversation discussing a piece of American history: the Vietnam War. Ultimately, this was a war against communism seeking to bring peace between the North and South Vietnamese. Reportedly, over $150 Billion was spent on this war. Twice as many bombs were dropped during air missions in the Vietnam War than America dropped in World War II. In this war, there was not an identified “front line”. Because of this, the body count of enemy soldiers was the measure of success, not land taken. Needless to say, this was a significant demonstration of a physical advancement. Did it ultimately have a positive impact on the presence of Communism in the region? Imagine this: what if we would have allocated 10% of the funds to be spent on missionaries who are trained up and sent out to share the gospel and the good news of Jesus Christ? Find out the details of the power of the gospel, how the church can not only effect a nation, but the world, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: the Gospel, Communism, Cambodia, World War II, and missionaries.
