Pastor Allen Snapp pastors Grace Community Church in Painted Post, New York. His church was part of a network of churches that, as a group, contributed to missions, but on a local level, Pastor Snapp felt that his congregation was very disconnected from the missionary projects they were giving to. Shepherd's Staff facilitated doing missions on a local level with the Smallcombs, a family from within their own local congregation now serving on the mission field in Thailand.
Grace Community Church made full use of resources available from Shepherd's Staff Mission Facilitators to churches for sending and caring for missionaries well.

In part two of our focus on Talking Bibles, Paul continues telling fascinating stories of people taking the gospel to places in India and East Africa where American missionaries don't have access. He also discusses how gathering data reshapes strategy and future goals. The impact this technology is having on the power of the gospel to change lives is inspiring.
