Jon Fuller is on a mission to be a true example of Christ in his life and in his work.

Some paths have been bumpy and filled with debris, but through it all, grace and faith have been a sustaining force in the lives of these men. You won't find any fake and phoney Christianity here.....just real people with a heart for God and living out His call on their lives. Join us for new episodes each week. We'd love it if you'd share the show with other men of faith who need support and encouragement along their journey.

This week, let’s do something just a little bit different. For those of you who have been hanging out with the “Are You Real” podcast since the beginning, you might be familiar with a man by the name of Any Dietz. Andy first appeared on Episode 7, and he was able to share his heart for the nations and the way God has called him to live outside of his comfort zone. Andy’s passion for international missions is far reaching. He’s been to 43 different countries, and that has opened his eyes to God’s blessing for us here in the States.

But God’s purpose for Andy is bigger than just his heart for missions. Last time we talked, I promised that we would get some more details about a crazy situation that happened one night in Budapest. Andy survived a kidnapping, but the grace of God. It is an incredible story of survival, strength, and faith that he writes about in his book Kidnapped in Budapest. I can’t wait for you to hear more.

  • Experiencing gratitude from travels around the world.
  • How different cultures bring about new perspectives.
  • Spiritual impact of salvation through a kid to the leader of a nation!
  • Andy walks us through the story of his abduction.
  • Getting tangled with the Mafia.
  • The support on the home front in prayer and provision.
  • Psalm 121:7
  • Kidnapping and chaos are both used to bring people closer to God.
  • Andy’s call to find your specific purpose.
