The Better Roads PodcastJun 23, 2023
A Conversation With Bob Laflin
Bob Laflin is gifted by God to see and impart insightful truths to people. He has been walking in faithfulness with this gift, sometimes referred to as words of knowledge, for many years. The Holy Spirit frequently shows Bob pictures, words, or dates about individuals which he shares with them. Sometimes he may not even know the full significance of those words, but they are revealing to the people who receive them. In this episode of Better Roads, Randall and Bob discuss how this gift works through Bob, about excesses that sometimes occur when people either presume upon the Holy Spirit or go beyond what the Spirit has revealed to them. They visit about the circus-like atmosphere that is sometimes created, never glorifying to the Lord, and about how people who are discovering the Lord has similarly gifted them can begin to step out and grow in a gift of the Spirit in a manner that is pleasing to the Lord. Bob and Randall also candidly visit about Bob’s present physical reality of multiple sclerosis, which keeps him homebound. How does Bob process the contrast between the fact that God manifests His power through Bob and yet Bob’s freedom to minister has been greatly curtailed because of MS. What is God up to? All in this episode of Better Roads.
A Conversation With Jessica Sanford

She’s not the first person to speak, but she is an astute and careful listener.

He is continually learning about children’s needs and stories and helping prospective foster care parents discover and navigate a pathway to serving. Kelley and Hannah do much more than talk. They walk out their passion, having served as both foster and adoptive parents. They heard from God and are following Him, not always knowing where that will lead. How does a couple prayerfully consider and begin the process of foster parenting? Are there people who should not become foster parents? What are the challenges and rewards? In this episode of Better Roads, Randall and Kelley discuss foster parenting, the Masts’ journey, and the Better Roads Kelley has chosen that were pivotal to who and what he is today.

In this episode of Better Roads, Randall and Victoria explore the genesis and pathway that led to her becoming the passionate worshiper and worship leader that she is today. As Victoria emphasizes, singing is but one aspect of worship, but it is the expression through which the Holy Spirit uses her to minister to others. Victoria and Randall converse about the difference between worship and performance, what to do when someone sincerely wants to be part of a worship team but cannot sing, and why some songs may not be appropriate or a fit for a congregation. What constitutes good worship? What contributes to it and what distracts from it? Victoria is lovingly direct in sharing from her heart about worship.
A Conversation With Linda Wilson
Ron and Linda Wilson were quite an at-large missionary team. Ron retired early from his successful career as an insurance company executive in order to respond to the Lord’s call upon his life. He never looked back, demonstrating how God had gifted him in connecting with people and pursuing big vision. Linda was the “nuts and bolts” member of the team, helping Ron’s visions come to reality. After Ron endured years of repeated health crises God welcomed him to his heavenly reward. For Linda the question was, “Now what?” She knew the answer. She was to carry on with a special, loving focus on the nation of India. Doors of opportunity have been slamming shut for Christians in India but, like Ron, Linda is not easily discouraged. She is pressing on, retrofitting some of the Wilsons’ vision into new forms and into more acceptable definitions and vocabulary in India. In this episode of Better Roads Linda shares about her journey, from the grief of losing Ron, who was her shining star, to innovatively carrying on the missionary work they launched together.

In the episode of Better Roads, Randall and Christi talk about how much refugees are just like us. They care about their kids. They want to best for their families. They want to maintain responsibility for caring for their families. And, they are so appreciative of this nation for opening its protective arms to them. They are not looking for handouts. That is why Christi emphasizes caring about their dignity and peace, two fundamentals of life for all human beings. The story of refugees is not a border crossings matter; it is an ongoing story of people who have been carefully vetted and receive some of the very limited number of acceptance notices that are provided by the government. You don’t hear much about this ministry, but it is a moving one. Pull up with your cup of coffee and learn about what God is doing through this.
A Conversation with Dan Powell
Dan Powell worked his way up the corporate ladder as a CPA with a Fortune 500 company. But he walked away from that career ladder to become a pastor, while still retaining his CPA certification. In this edition of Better Roads Randall and Dan discuss what happened that caused Dan to take such a huge step. How did his wife and family receive that decision?

A Conversation with Chris Hansler
Chris Hansler is the executive director for Pacific Region Open Bible Churches. Before assuming the regional role, he and his wife, Lisa, to whom he had been married for 36 years, had been youth pastors and church planters while raising four children. Now empty nesters, this new role would be a wonderful opportunity for them.
Instead the word cancer invaded their plans when Lisa received the diagnosis from her doctor. Every tool in medicine’s arsenal was applied to defeat the evil disease. Prayers were offered from around the world, and yet Lisa was transported to heaven even earlier than doctors had expected. How do you deal with such an immense loss of a beloved spouse? How do you carry on in ministry when it has always been the two of you doing everything together? Chris is still navigating through those questions and more as part of the grieving process.

If you are dealing with loss in your life or have ever been at that point, this conversation will minister to your heart.
A Conversation with LeAnna McIntyre
LeAnna McIntyre faithfully served in multiple leadership roles at The Bridge Open Bible Church, in Springfield, Oregon, for twenty years. She did not realize it in the early years, but God was preparing her to assume the senior pastor role for the church. How did she transition from serving as a fellow member of the church, just one of several peer leaders, to becoming the leader and shepherd of the church? And, as important, how did other people process and work with that transition? In this edition of Better Roads LeAnna discusses with Randall her journey to becoming lead pastor. She also offers an insightful word of encouragement for other women who feel the Lord has prepared and called them to leadership but find that not many, if any, doors of opportunity are open. What should be their response? Leanna is a joyfully passionate and direct communicator and encourager. Men and women alike will respond to her winsomeness.
A Conversation with Bill Burchit
Bill Burchit and Natalie, his wife, were feeling stirred to plant a church. With their daughter entering her teen years and their son ready to head off to college, the Burchits had been prayerfully contemplating how God would use them at this new season of family life. Bill served as a staff pastor at Hope Church of Northwest Arkansas and Natalie was a realtor. Their lead pastor, Jim Brewer, and the church were ready and willing to sponsor the church plant with resources of people and funds. And then the surprising news came: there would be an unexpected addition to the Burchit family! Should they push forward on the church plant anyway, or should they hit the pause button while bringing another infant into this world and navigating the busyness that the newborn season brings? In this edition of Better Roads, Bill discusses with Randall the process that he and Natalie went through in their decision-making process about Canvas Church, the church plant they pastor today, and about the better roads Bill recognizes as providing an important doorway to how God is using the Burchits today.
A Conversation with Julie Cole
Julie Cole is a gentle, soft-spoken advocate for women in ministry. She is not a campaigner, protester, or critic.

In this episode of Better Roads, Randall and Julie discuss an issue that can cause much debate in some quarters today, the role of women in ministry. What about those passages of Scripture concerning women teaching or leading men? How should a woman respond when it appears she is being confined because of her gender? What about the husband/wife relationship and who leads in it? Grab your cup of coffee and listen in on this fascinating conversation.
