    A Catch Conversation with Creators of Mystic Chapel

    in Lifestyle

    Join John with his special guests as they discuss their second album, Mystic Chapel:

    "Our second album, Mystic Chapel, asks another question, “What if we still believed?”. We came to faith in a time when something was happening. It wasn’t programmed, it wasn’t planned, but it was real. The theology was not deep or profound and there was much that we needed to learn, but we believed, and that belief was translated into a movement that changed the Church, changed the style and substance of ministry, changed worship and changed music. It was a time when it seemed nothing was impossible."

    A Catch Conversation with Greg Wallace

    "My first day of sobriety is March 28, 2010.

    Joy and I celebrated our 27th year of marriage in November 2014. We live in the small town Indiana town where she grew up. Main Street really is the main street. Della, our weimardoodle, is the focus of all our dysfunction and affection. Now that I'm retired I try to work very hard at not doing very much at all. Prior to that, I served as executive director of Hope & New Life, a ministry to equip Indiana churches for healing the relationally broken." - Greg

From his experience working with the people of the island and seeing first hand the struggle that people have financially here in this state, you can understand why he is on a mission to help the families of Hawaii make a better life for themselves.  He is also very passionate about saving children and has lived in Ethiopia when he was a child. Africa is very dear to his heart and you can understand his passion to help those who are in desperate need. He has seen this with his own eyes and lived among those less fortunate. He is very aware of the current conditions around the world and will be sharing his knowledge on the show. 

    Sandy Conway has lived on Maui for the last 15 years and loves the culture of this great state of Hawaii! She is the Co-Founder of Maui Women Live Out Loud whose mission is to share, care, and pray for the women of Maui.

She has been searching for a cause-based organization to join forces with to save the lives of children, but also to make a better life for herself. Her mission is share the news with the world about Hidden Hunger Global and the difference it can make for everyone.
