Karen is an expert in Christian religious persecution and an all-around delightful person! Today, we discuss her work advocating for missions, the historic role of racial and ethnic minorities in the field of missions, and her new children’s book Maria Fearing: The Girl Who Dreamed of Distant Lands. If you have questions about the history of missions, the current state of persecution in the mission field, or would like to learn more about Karen’s work, then this episode is just for you!
