Welcome to a special edition of the Hank Unplugged podcast where we celebrate the 100th episode of Hank Unplugged with a close, personal friend of Hank Hanegraaff who fits the billing for the podcast from its inception—truly one of the most interesting, informative and inspirational people on the planet. K.P. Yohannan is the founder of Gospel For Asia and has spent his life leading a growing gospel movement in over a dozen Asian nations. His classic book Revolution in World Missions has impacted millions of people and truly is the story of how one man can change a generation. On this edition of Hank Unplugged Yohannan joins Hanegraaff to discuss his new book Never Give Up-– the story of how the Lord carried Yohannan through the most difficult hours of his life and highlights his hope that the story of a broken man can impact a generation. We are experiencing unprecedented times. In such times people desperately need hope and courage. God brings certain books and people into our lives precisely when we need them. Never Give Up is one of those books and K.P. Yohannan is one of those people. We hope you have enjoyed the first 100 episodes of Hank Unplugged and look forward to many more—God bless!
