HCJB Global WorldEver heard someone state a very ambitious goal that made you raise your eyebrows in suspicion?  It's natural to defer to a doubting posture when presented with difficult facts.  In a world with many cynics and self-described "realists", it's refreshing to hear a story of people with BIG FAITH.  People who are willing to really go beyond the call.  Here's a story that aired on "Beyond the Call" last week:

Hi I'm Wayne Pederson, President of HCJB Global with Beyond the Call.
