The Indiana Jones of the Mission World

My good friend Joel Vestal and I have known each other since our freshman year in college.  (Joel’s roommate that year was Chris Seay, another good friend).

Joel has always been an adventurer. I remember hearing stories of exotic foods he had eaten in Nepal, an ill-fated white water rafting trip in India that led to an amoeba, and receiving a postcard Joel sent to me from Baghdad just after the first Gulf War. I have always thought of Joel as the Indiana Jones of the Mission World.

It is so appropriate that Joel’s new book is called Dangerous Faith!


To learn more about Joel’s work with indigenous leaders across the world, check out ServLife, a non-profit he started when we were in college.

Also, be sure to check out Dream of Justice, a campaign for education and economic empowerment in some of the most impoverished places.
