This week, we are privileged to have Charles Joseph, writer and itinerant speaker with RZIM in India, with us on Connect to answer our questions about faith and life. As I come from a western perspective, I always look forward to hearing from our speakers who are engaged in ministry in parts of the world that differ from my own. So don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
EDIT: Each Q&A with Charles Joseph is now in its own topic in order to make finding these resources easier.
