Mike, who? MichaelTheSoundGuy.com on his website! Michael Helms, was a junior in high school when we met. He was a regular student, but brilliant, laughed and joked a lot. His dad was an international accountant and decided Michael, "Mike", needed to travel so he sent him to his company in Brazil where Mike met the love of his life, but he didn't know it yet. But, this young Brazilian lady, Silvana, knew he was the love of her life at 1st sight. Mike, makes Youth Worker On Fire sound AMAZING! He is a pro and brilliant! He and his family have sacrificed much for me, my family, this podcast and multiple ministries that I had developed over many years to reach students and families for Jesus Christ. Michael's oldest daughter Isabella, was even in the middle school ministry my last 2 years of my 29 years at Trinity Evangelical Free Church. Since Mike was in high school he has shown up every time God started a new wave of ministries through my family. I am forever grateful to you Michael for showing a servant's heart even when it came at a high price. Thank you Silvana, Isabella and Gabriella for loaning him to me to change our world with a piece of, "on earth as it is in heaven." I LOVE your story in this podcast of international love, pain, joy, brilliance, fearlessness and sacrifice. I am glad untold numbers of people will have a little glimpse into the man of God you are and all you have accomplished with your family. It's about time!
