God is writing a great big story and you have a standing invitation to be a part of it. When you hear a story about God’s supernatural work in someone’s life, it builds your faith. Every week, host Meridith Foster sits down with a guest to share their chapter in God’s unfolding story – this is The Unfolding podcast.

Page 110: Dmitri and Anya PoliakoffNovember 26, 2021
Growing up in the U.S.S.R., Dmitri and Anya Poliakoff had never heard the story of the Bible. From the time they were young, they had been told there is no God. They were restoration artists who studied some of the greatest painters in the history of art. Many of those paintings depicted the story of Jesus. The truth was right in front of them, but Dmitri and Anya had no idea. One small, smuggled Bible changed everything. Dmitri and Anya now lead A.D. Ventures Ministries, an association of more than 400 churches and mission groups across Russia.

Page 109: Joe & Tara BuchananNovember 19, 2021
We often come into marriage with both baggage and expectations. When your spouse’s baggage is harder than you expected, how do you navigate that? Joe and Tara Buchanan came into their marriage with very different backgrounds. Joe shares the story of his childhood in Page 1 of The Unfolding. It’s one of the most powerful stories of transformation you’ll ever hear, and it will give you some background on the challenges he faced in trying to have a healthy marriage. Tara’s background was pretty much the polar opposite- a healthy, intact family that had faith at its foundation. Two people with such different histories were bound to face some hard stuff. God knew they needed to face it and they would need his help to do it.

Page 108: George OderoNovember 12, 2021
Growing up in the slums in Kenya, George Odero always seemed to be on the outside looking in. He longed for the love and acceptance of God, but found people couldn’t see past the dirt, poverty, and danger of being a street kid. He couldn’t imagine that God would love him and use him to change his world. George is pastor with Forward Ministry Kenya.

Brant Hansen is from small-town Illinois, and is a self-professed nerd, diagnosed with Asperger’s as an adult. He’s a fan of C.S. Lewis and toast. “Producer Sherri,” also a radio veteran, is from Pittsburgh, has one of the world’s great laughs, and demonstrates incredible patience with Brant. Both are believers in Jesus, but have difficulty fitting in with modern American church culture. Together they have a daily radio show that is syndicated across the country, with segments ranging from the latest animal news, to interactions with listeners, to discussions about how messy life can be, and how good God is.
