#98 Inspiring People To Give – Brad Formsma

Brad is a 45 year old Father of 3 from Grand Rapids MI.  In August of 2014 he moved his family to Irvine, CA knowing no one. Brad’s biggest weakness is based around trust.  Brad believes his trust as a child was broken due to abuse.  Luckily, he has in him a glass is 99% full attitude which leads him to want to inspire people.  At 28 years old, he allowed himself to get into a bad 10 year Real Estate deal that threatened his family’s security.  Now he realizes that it was his greed that led him down that path.  The healing is in the telling and when you bring it into the light, you should have men of God around to support you.

In 2008, Brad read a story about a family who needed bikes.  He and his family took the afternoon, bought bikes and hunted down the family from the newspaper.  I Like Giving was born as a way for people to tell their inspiring stories of giving like Brad’s family.

#97 Pastor Hears the Voices of Refugees – Mike Long

Mike Long is a Pastor and the Executive Director of “Voice of Refugees.”  He is the father of 8 children and teaches that there is a new love shared in God.  Sometimes he is too trusting and believes the best in other people, but he knows no other way to live in Christ.  The world doesn’t trust enough.  Pastor Mike had a grandchild in distress during birth and God’s sovereignty became very apparent.  He used to think that he would be a missionary traveling the world, but instead “Voice of Refugees” is Pastor Mike’s missionary work that comes to him.  Over 50% of people will never get out of Refugee camps.  The Church is the largest giver of relief to these camps.

“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me,

that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” – Jeremiah 9: 23/24

#96 Seduced and Stolen Into Human Slavery – Opal Singleton

Specialist in child sex trafficking Opal Singleton started her work in Cambodia in 2008. What she discovered is that sex trafficking is now in the purview of gangs and drug cartels.   These organizations target the most vulnerable kids from foster care and those who have run away from home; however, these are not throwing targets.  Now that they can use technology and social media they could be coming after your children as well.

Human trafficking is a crime of psychology. Fathers are key in the fight against sex trafficking and must be involved in the solution.  Our children carry devices that allowed them to be in contact with over a million predators.  Opal has trained over 50,000 people about the dangers of human trafficking and understanding how and why it happens.

#95 From High School Bully to International Missionary – Gary Schneider

Western Regional Director of Global Media Outreach (GMO) Gary Schneider tells the story of the Gospel to millions of people around the world online.  There are over 6000 missionaries online to disciple new converts from the previous day.   Today, Gary is a man of great faith who brings people to the Lord, but he never expected as a young man to follow this path.

Gary grew up in a home with an alcoholic father.   When he was 14 his parents got divorced and from age 14 to 17 things were very dark. There were many accounts of Gary being a bully and even a time when he went to jail.   He had one friend from high school named Keith who had a transformation.   Gary went with him to a youth group and learned what it was that had changed him so dramatically.  Gary committed himself to God and started on his path to ministry.  This is Gary’s testimony.


“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,the new creation has come:The old has gone, the new is here!” – 2nd Corinthians 5:17
