Three ways to encounter Jesus this Christmas | with Cindy DeBoer, Marci Renee & Christine Trimpe

A Gospel Spice Christmas gift for you

Season 6, episode 125
55 min / Published

Episode 125 – Today is another Special Christmas Gospel Spice gift for you! Stephanie welcomes three dear friends, each with their own message right in time for Christmas. Join us for three short conversations to make this season unique among all. From a calling to leave everything to serve God overseas and even through death, to a special Christmas experience, to a passion to honor Jesus among the least of these—allow these conversations to inspire you, and take your Christmas experience to new levels with our guests.

Cindy DeBoer shares her family’s story away from the typical American dream and towards embracing radical obedience. Moving overseas (twice!) and dealing with uncurable illness has shaped Cindy’s faith and taught her to delight in God through the highs and lows of life. This is one story you do not want to miss—personal promise from Stephanie!

Marci Renee too has moved overseas several times, and lived cross-culturally most of her life. She now lives in Spain with her family, and has unexpectedly found herself in the trenches of the fight against human trafficking as she now works with a local halfway house, restoring women whose lives have been shattered beyond description. And yes, this is a Christmas story—about redemption for the least of these. We can relate. You will not be the same after you hear Marci—another promise from Stephanie.

Finally, Christine Trimpe joins us to tell us about her discovery of the deeper meaning of Christmas—joy! Embrace her quest to seek and find joy in the gospel of Luke, the perfect Advent gift this season. Stephanie loves Christine’s contagious joy and her desire to share her passion with all those she encounters.

Scroll below for all the ways to connect with these precious ambassadors of Jesus, this Christmas season and beyond!
