Full Episode Notes:

Don's Website:

We all want to see God do amazing thing but sometimes the struggle is in remaining faithful and obedient in the various places God calls us.

Listen as Don Armstead shares the stories of God’s spectacular faithfulness. From career transitions to allowing God to teach him to play music as a worship leader to navigating church transitions and more, Don has remained faithfully obedient. And through it all, God has shown His incredible providence.

While the world would point to a path of personal gain and glory, Don has chosen to be obedient in the little things and because of that faithfulness, God has taken him to places he’d never have dreamed.

Now, not only does he minister in a local church, he’s able to travel to the Philippines for months at a time, building relationships, ministering, and supporting the Church there with a vision that is expanding from glory to glory to glory.

Listen to hear what God’s done and to be inspired.
