About the Guest:
Ruth Ripken and her husband, Nik are mission veterans of 35 years. Along with her husband, they have done extensive research among believers living in the midst of persecution in over 70 countries. This research has been shared in numerous articles and three books. Nowadays, they spend their time sharing the truths they have learned from these believers in persecution with churches, schools, and mission organizations.
One of Ruth’s greatest joys is spending time with Muslim women, listening to their stories and seeing how God can break into their lives. Another blessing is helping Christian women in America to connect and fall in love with the nations in their midst.
Nik and Ruth are the parents of three sons, two wonderful daughter-in-loves and an amazing grandson.
