Cloud of Witnesses Ep. 1: Serving Through Suffering

Dear listener: our aim is to continue to equip you with exceptional content from the Lord’s global harvest. That’s why, for the next five weeks, every Wednesday, we’re introducing a new crossover show to the main feed: Cloud of Witnesses. Released last year, Cloud of Witnesses is now being made available to the broader community. You can listen to all ten episodes on-demand at, or search for it in your podcast feed. Alternatively, you can continue tuning in every Wednesday for the next five weeks to The Missions Podcast feed to get a taste of this enriching show now.

Also, keep an eye out for Season 2 of Cloud of Witnesses, premiering later this year. We’ll recount the stories of faithful missionaries from the past generation whose zeal, boldness, and perseverance challenge us in our complacency and encourage us to stay faithful.

We hope you enjoy this journey through the lives of those who’ve gone before us, bearing witness to the faithfulness of God.

Original show notes: In this pilot episode, we hear the story of Tim Bahula, from ABWE Canada, who served with his wife in Trinidad and Tobago for eight years. While home on furlough, the Bahula’s received the unexpected and devastating news that Jane had been diagnosed with cancer, and within months passed away. Tim opens up about the struggles of resuming life without Jane and discovering the importance of leaning on church family and friends when you’re going through hardships.
